Modern Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor living is an enduringly popular home decorating trend. Homeowners who want to expand their square footage have found that outdoor lounges and entertaining spaces add functionality and curb appeal without the need for a messy, expensive remodeling project.

The options for transforming your traditional patio or deck into a fully functional outdoor space are nearly limitless. While some people use the area as an extension of their living room, others have created stunning kitchens. If you’re looking to upgrade from a few lawn chairs scattered around a grill to modern outdoor furniture, consider these benefits of outdoor living.

1. Be Healthier

Most Americans spend up to 90% of their time inside, where poor indoor air quality can cause or worsen health issues like allergies and asthma. By furnishing an outdoor living area, you are investing in your overall well-being through a connection to nature. Being outside has a host of physical and mental wellness benefits, including reducing stress and improving mindfulness.

2. Increase Your Home’s Value

In today’s ultra-competitive housing market, any feature that stands out among the rest could help net you more profit if you decide to sell. A well-appointed outdoor area with modern furniture adds beauty and function – two assets that will make your home more desirable to potential buyers. If your budget doesn’t allow you to renovate your interior space, focusing on your yard, patio, or deck could be a more affordable alternative.

3. Improve Your Hosting Abilities

If you love entertaining friends and family, outdoor living will expand your options for social gatherings. Outdoor spaces are ideal for parties because you don’t need to spend as much time cleaning up before or afterward. Invite guests to enjoy mingling in the fresh air while they admire your decorating skills. You can elevate your cookouts to a new level by creating an outdoor kitchen and dining room with modern furniture like tables, chairs, and benches.  

4. Let Your Creativity Run Wild

When brainstorming ideas for your outdoor living space, remember that the goal is to design the area purely for relaxing and enjoying the finer things in life. Start by investing in well-crafted furniture as your focal point, then add elements like a fire pit, hot tub, fountain, or string lights. Finish your project with landscaping and hardscaping.

5. Plan a Staycation

If you’re a homebody at heart, why not create a private retreat in your backyard? Having a comfortable outdoor living space lets you feel like you’re getting away from it all without leaving home. If you’re feeling extra stressed or burned out, spending a few hours outside can refresh you – even more so if you decide to incorporate a pool or spa.
