Posted on February 21, 2019

With the colder weather outside, it might seem a bit preemptive to be thinking about designing the perfect outdoor living space. However, it's never too early to start planning for your stay-at-home summer getaway. There are a multitude of reasons why starting your outdoor project in the winter is a great idea, as it gives you plenty of time to start creating the perfect outdoor living space for your San Antonio home. There are a few different aspects you should consider when thinking about what to include in your new space.

Bring the Indoors, Outdoors

Landscape architecture and design goes through a variety of trends throughout the years, just like interior decorating and design. One of the biggest trends in 2019 for your outdoor living space, is to make it an extension of your home. This can be done through a variety of different means, but one of the best ways is by ensuring your design aesthetic for the exterior and interior of your home compliment each other. Whether it's through lighting design, use of a specific color palette, or utilizing a specific pattern throughout the areas, you can easily have the eye make a seamless transition between the two parts of your home.

Additionally, adding features like a patio cover or even going so far as to install an outdoor kitchen, are great ways to make that feeling of comfort in your outdoor space. A feeling of coziness and warmth is important as well, and this could be achieved by simply adding a fire pit or fireplace to your living area.

Create a Private Getaway

One of the best parts about having a well-decorated backyard space is being able to have a stay-cation built in right into your home! Creating your own getaway is a great use of any outdoor location, but only if it's done the right way. Adding a home spa is a great way to make a nice, relaxing location in your home. Another great choice is adding a gazebo to your backyard. Our designers are ready to meet with you and build a custom-made gazebo that would seamlessly integrate into the aesthetic of your outdoor living space. Gazebos are a wonderful addition to any home, as they are a unique way to add more space to relax and unwind in your home, and will also protect against the harsh San Antonio weather. They are also fairly simple to maintain, so they will not add more hassle to your already busy life.

Work With Colors and Textures

A simple way to refresh your backyard is to play with the colors and textures of your pre-existing structures and furniture, or to add new pieces that can be worked into the existing look. Using a variety of colors and textures adds a sense of fun and uniqueness to your space, which draws the eye outdoors, therefore making your home feel bigger, and creating one continuous space. Consider mixing modes of metal and wood, or adding in wicker, to give some depth and dimension to the look.
