One of the best ways to up your home’s value and your own enjoyment of it is to boost its curb appeal in both the front and backyards.
Whether you’re interested in selling your house this summer or maximizing your time outdoors, here are three ways to take your outdoor space to the next level:
Potted plants: Keeping things low maintenance is key as that will free up your time to relax and enjoy your space. But low-key doesn’t mean you need to compromise on style!
Use vibrant terracotta and ceramic pots to plant annuals, perennials and even small vegetable plants. These planters look terrific, require lower maintenance as they’re easy to water and your plants will thrive with less pruning. You can create a whole garden using a beautifully arranged set of pots.
Chic patio furniture: Patio furniture come forward in leaps and bounds, as the lines between outdoor and indoor furniture become increasingly blurred. The perfect example of this is the Connexion Outdoor Collection. It’s just as comfortable as a regular sectional couch, but its durable suncloth pillows make it ideal for relaxed and fun outdoor festivities.
The trend of bringing the indoors out continues with the Kartell Bubble Club Sofa. Inspired by the lines of a traditional sofa, but made of Polyethylene, it works great outdoors. For a statement look, pair it with Kartell’s Louis Ghost Chair – made of Polycarbonate and inspired by traditional furniture design.
Outdoor lighting: Lighting can be quite impactful and creates a mood when used correctly. Light fixtures like outdoor pot lights illuminate the home beautifully at night. For a simpler project try installing landscape lighting. Not only is it elegant, it also lights up your walkway! Items as simple as tiki lights and lanterns make a huge difference at night, and create just the right ambiance.
