Take your outdoor space to a new level of comfort this summer! Canadian summers are best enjoyed outside, so why not invest in your space this summer? At Georgian Sands, we think that the key to creating an amazing patio space for you and your family is comfort, ease, and a bit of style—keep reading to discover 5 décor ideas you can use in your backyard this summer to create your own relaxing oasis.
An outdoor rug is the perfect addition to any outdoor oasis, adding comfort and dimension to any patio set up. Place a rug under your dining or seating area to make your space feel cozy and make a stone patio feel a little softer on the feet.
Nothing is better than gathering around a fire on a summer night with family and friends. Firepits are also a stylish way to stay warm on those cooler summer nights. You can DIY a firepit in your backyard or create a tabletop firepit using a food-safe gel fuel canister (like Sterno’s S’mores Heat ). Make sure you read up on Wasaga’s fire by-laws and double check your space can accommodate a firepit before you set up!
Create a bit of ambiance by adding string lights to your backyard lounge setup. These classic battery-operated lights from Ikea are easy to set up and won’t drain your electricity bill. Experiment with different sized lights to add some sparkle and intrigue to your patio to give every night a bit of sparkle.
One sure-fire way to give your backyard some style is by incorporating potted plants of any style in the unique potted planter of your choice. Whether you move some indoor plants outdoors or prefer to plant something annual and leave it outdoors, potted plants are a great way to decorate a space while keeping the plant mobile.
It goes without saying that your backyard oasis needs comfortable furniture that can accommodate various amounts of people—and preferably has built in storage. This summer, explore the many outdoor pouf and ottoman options available at your favourite outdoor furniture stores, and experiment with multi-level seating. Poufs are great for long lounges in the grass and are a great way to add a touch of colour and character to any backyard.
