Backyard Trends for 2017

This year, the trends for backyards reflect people’s desire to bring the indoors to the outside to create a comfortable outdoor living space that is both beautiful and functional using upcycled materials.

Here are some of the most popular upcycled and new backyard trends so far this year:

Outdoor Entertaining

As the days get longer and the temperature rises, most people are starting to fire up their grills. If you want to spice up your entertainment, you need to think outside the box. Consider taking your next party outdoors because a patio is a perfect spot to entertain your guests.

You need to design and arrange your patio to accommodate all your entertainment needs. When planning a new outdoor entertainment area for your patio, you need to consider the following:

  • How often do you plan to entertain?
  • How will you configure your new upcycled furniture for the patio area?
  • How many guests do you plan to entertain on average?

The answers to these questions will help you determine what you need to add to your backyard to make it work for you.

Pallet is fast becoming a common choice for walkways and patios. Unlike traditional concrete, pallets have the ability to withstand heavy traffic and require very little maintenance. They offer an aesthetically pleasing upcycled solution that permits design creativity and can be used on large and small patios alike.

They also come in an assortment of colors and shapes, which can be mixed to come up with a unique design.

Full pallet outdoor kitchens, pallet couch and sofas, fire pits, and built-in grills can help you to create a comfortable outdoor living area that your family and friends will not want to leave. Moreover, having a kitchen outside will make it easier to cook and serve while having fun with your friends instead of being cooped up in the kitchen.

Backyard Water Features

The soft splash of water in the backyard will bring motion and life to your outdoor living area. It will also attract birds and transform your outdoors into a peaceful retreat.

During the summer, homeowners have the chance to take their grilling to the outdoors. Although grilling enthusiasts would never let the cold get in the way of cooking, summer and spring are the best seasons for outdoor grilling. Smoking meats at home are something that most homeowners are picking up to add distinctive flavors to their foods.

You can also add a pellet smoker and grill to your backyard. More people are considering grills and smokers that use pelletized wood because of their many benefits: since these grills use an indirect cooking method, they reduce the number of carcinogenic chemicals in food, which makes it healthier and tastier.

If you want to match your grill to your entire upcycled setting, or just need a few additional racks and space around it, you can use smaller customized pallets to upgrade your grill. For serious outdoor entertaining, you can add appliances and serving space for an outdoor kitchen on that extra space created by a pallet.

Pallet as an addition to your grill can also help with raising the level at which you grill - a great option if you have a sore back and cannot bend for too long.

Energetic and Vibrant Outdoors

You should think about adding a dash of color to your outdoor living area. With green as your backdrop, you should be bold enough to add color to the exterior of your home and turn it from dull to lively. In any case, to ensure a verdant backyard, work with area irrigation installation companies to make watering easy.

You can also brighten your outdoors with colorful containers. Just choose pots in different colors and textures to liven up your backyard. You can also add depth to your space by painting the ceiling of your porch with a contrasting color.

For the best pool, pergola, and outdoor kitchen designs, find a contractor you trust to make the better outdoors your envision come to life.
