You can travel to the ends of the earth, but there’s nothing quite like coming home to your own private paradise. A beautiful backyard design can make you feel utterly relaxed and endlessly entertained. Are you ready to take your backyard from drab to fab? Speck USA is here to help you make it happen. Check out these four backyard design tips and create your own personal oasis.
Backyard Design #1: Swimming Pool
Nothing brings 24/7 vacation vibes to your backyard like a gorgeous swimming pool. Whether you want a pool with a sleek, modern aesthetic or a pool that blends in with nature, you can customize the design until it matches the picture in your head. Then there’s nothing left to do but inflate your float, don your sunglasses, and enjoy.
Backyard Design Bonus Tip: Swim-Up Bar
Enjoy some barstool banter and keep your guests hydrated by adding a swim-up bar to your pool design. Extra seating around the pool’s edge is always good, and cement barstools will keep you anchored at the center of your party.
Backyard Design #2: Concrete Patio
A private paradise would be just a patch of dirt without a concrete patio. You’ll need a durable, low-maintenance, stylish place to rest your patio furniture. Create a one-of-a-kind flooring look by staining and/or stamping your concrete.
You might think the flooring doesn’t really matter when it comes to backyard design but trust us — the incredible form and function of customized concrete will not go unnoticed by your guests.
Don’t forget to connect your patio to other parts of the backyard with matching concrete walkways. Matted grass or muddy paths don’t match any design aesthetic.
Backyard Design #3: Custom Fire Pit
Take a moment and imagine the sound and smell of a crackling campfire. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? When you bring a custom fire pit into your backyard design, you can experience the joy of a firelight glow anytime you want.
Do you want a nice amount of heat with less mess? Then a gas-powered fire pit might be the right choice for you. Do you want to build your own fire and turn up the toastiness? Then a wood-burning fire pit would be more to your liking.
Backyard Design #4: Outdoor Fireplace
An advantage to having a fireplace over a fire pit is that the smoke will travel upwards through the chimney. Just like with pools, outdoor fireplaces can encompass any style that tickles your fancy, from woodsy to glamorous.
An outdoor fireplace is also the perfect centerpiece for your patio. You and your family can enjoy the fire’s warmth while cuddling on a couch or watching an outdoor TV.
