The outdoor couch has made a major comeback when it comes to outdoor furniture. Gone are the days of hard benches and chairs, when you can more comfortably relax with friends and family on s stylish outdoor couch. These come in a variety of sizes, shapes and options so they can truly fit most any backyard layout. You can even take a sectional outdoor couch and rearrange it around a fire pit once the cooler temperatures of fall hit.
If you thought your garden or planting were things far past this time of year, think again! Consider the ever popular succulent plan, that can create pint-sized gardens or can be planted in wood boxes and really capture the rustic level of fall. In cooler climates, you may consider trying yucca and agave plants.
A third great backyard addition is that of a pocket bar. If you backyard was not built with a bar in mind, it doesn’t mean you can never have one! Miniature pocket bars will save you from having to go inside to the kitchen to refill your glass, without the commitment of a full size outdoor bar. If you are really short on space, try a fold down murphy bar that will fit your space perfectly and keep your liquor collection protected between happy hours.
Hammock chairs are another popular backyard accessory of today and can be easily added to porches anywhere. This will give your outdoor space an easy, casual feel with a bit of an eccentric twist.
Lastly, stenciled flooring may not be something you have heard of but it definitely something you should check out. Concrete and hot material flooring is a hot staple at the moment, and for good reason. It is more sustainable and wood and gives and industrial flavor that lends itself to the more modern look. Add some design with stencil and stains and it is the perfect way to personalize your space and give it life. You can even use this same technique on wood floors to give shabby-chic vibe.
These simple trends will have you loving your backyard this fall!
