With the recent pandemic striking, it comes as no surprise that you might want to revamp your outdoor space to accommodate for stay-at-home situations. So here are some ways you can spruce up your outdoor to make you a little less claustrophobic and a little more refreshed.
Rejuvenate in nature
Try give your space a tropical feel by setting up an outdoor lounge. There are plenty of inspirational ideas you can look up on the internet that resemble your kind of style. You could choose to purchase lounge chairs, loungers and hammocks, or you could promote local talent by having them custom make your outdoor furniture for you. Place some outdoor cushions, side tables and a few candles to create an atmosphere best suited to your needs.
Binge watch with the birds
If you have an area with a blank white wall or a provision to temporarily fit a white sheet, why not re-create a movie theatre in your own private outdoor space? All you need is to set up a projector and your phone or laptop to start binge watching your favourite TV show or movie with a hot water bottle and some popcorn.
Shine up your shed
A shed can be fairly unpleasant to look at, but it doesn’t always have to be that way. Spruce it up with a little painting, a lot of planters, creating a stone path and stringing up some beautiful lights to give the evening a glow.
Chat by the firepit
There’s nothing as beautiful as sitting by a warm fire having a chat with your loved ones. All you need to do is purchase a portable fire pit, some firewood and a pack of marshmallows to roast once you get that cosy campfire flame going.
Dine under the stars
Make the most of your outdoor space by creating a dining destination instead of only eating in the kitchen or in front of the television. Don’t miss out on candlelit dinners bringing magic to your backyard and enriching family connections. In addition to an outdoor dining table and some chairs, string up a strand of lights, put some wall planters and lay down a rug for the perfect ambience.
Meditate into a better mindset
Enhance your mind, body and spirit through a peaceful setup in your backyard that brings you peace and tranquillity. Create a meditation zone using tall planters for the privacy, plant flowers that have aromatic scents like jasmine or lavender and even build yourself a tent with curtains that blow in a refreshing breeze.
