If you’re looking to spruce up your outdoor living space, you’ve come to the right place! While many homeowners justly spend a lot of time decorating the interior of their homes, landscaping the outdoors is also a great way to beautify your living space. We’re talking more than just regular gardening – these days, landscaping has become a full-blown hobby for many, especially as we’ve grown to appreciate the natural world around us. Here, we’ve rounded up the top outdoor living trends in 2022 so that you can tap into your home’s full potential.
Although pandemic restrictions have been easing up, many workers aren’t giving up remote work. Work-from-home setups continue to be popular in 2022, and people are looking beyond simply working from the couch or the kitchen counter. Outdoor workspaces are popular because they let you carve out a specific space for work, yet they don’t take up valuable indoor space. Not to mention, they can be absolutely beautiful if you decorate them right. Turn your garden shed into your own personal office with a view. Just try not to get too distracted during online meetings!
A bold patterned rug can really tie up and brighten a living room, while an inspired tile print can transform a plain bathroom. The same concept can be applied to the outdoors: use stencil designs to spruce up your patios, alternate the shade of your patio pavers in stylish geometric patterns, install striking cement tiles… the possibilities are endless! The key to patterns is going bold, but in accents, so as not to keep your space from getting too overwhelming.
Style Up Your Seating Options
Indoor furniture makes its way outdoors. Materials such as rattan and organic furniture shapes look great when juxtaposed against natural settings. Think of a curved rattan chair on your patio amidst a splash of greenery for a true South-of-France atmosphere or some classic tropical chic. Woven structures and rounded lines are particularly popular when it comes to evoking this laid-back but stylish aesthetic. If you can get some tropical plants such as heliconia to grow, all the better!
Deck your yard with soothing elements for a relaxing escape at home. A subtle, simple element like a water feature can provide an ambiance that is immediately soothing for all your senses. Getting the right chaise lounge chairs can also make your outdoor spaces more inviting, while practical elements such as patio heaters can let you enjoy long hours outdoors. If you can afford it, investing in a pool can provide the ultimate retreat and boost your curb appeal in the long run.
