Florida homeowners typically are blessed with the ability to spend a lot of time outdoors. With the nearly endless summer, many of us can spend weekends by the pool or at the beach no matter what time of year it is. However, sometimes a staycation is exactly what you need to feel refreshed. If you want to transform your backyard into the same kind of oasis as the beach or resort, you can do so by investing in quality outdoor furniture and decor.
A few simple additions to your back porch or patio can instantly transform your outdoor space. To make the most of your investment, choose a few of these five must-have outdoor accessories for Florida homes:
In the summers, most Floridians don’t plan on spending more than an hour or two outside without some shade or a place to swim. If you want to be able to spend time in your backyard during the summer, created a shaded space to relax with a hammock or hammock chair. Hammocks are relatively inexpensive and provide the perfect place to lay back in the shade while the kids or dogs play in the backyard.
As autumn quickly approaches, you’ll soon be able to spend more time outdoors. If you want to catch a bit of sunshine before the day reaches peak temperatures, add two chairs and a table to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea. This encourages the family to spend more time outside in comfort.
Outdoor Dinner Table
If you enjoy entertaining in the backyard, one of the most important pieces of furniture you can invest in is an outdoor dining table. You can enjoy grilling, playing a game of cards, or simply sitting around and talking with friends. No backyard entertainment space is complete without one.
One of the most relaxing ways to spend the evening is sitting on a porch swing and watching the sun go down. You don’t need a great view to enjoy this either – just a good friend and some music can transform your backyard into the perfect place to relax. You can install your swing on the porch itself, or get a free-standing swing for the backyard.
Most Floridians don’t think of installing a firepit because nine months out of the year it’s too hot to enjoy one. However, during the few months during the year when it cools off, you’ll want to be spending as much time outdoors as possible. Purchasing an inexpensive firepit can transform your backyard into the ideal entertainment space with very little effort.
To kick it up a notch, consider fencing in your yard to create total privacy and safety for kids and pets throughout the year. FloriFence can help you design a backyard or front yard fence that meets your needs, budget, and style preferences. Contact us today to learn more!
