Hot Outdoor Furniture Trends for 2018
Designing outdoor spaces has evolved from adding a picnic or patio table to creating an entire outdoor room.
Home owners are opting to stay in their current homes rather than move and are investing more in them, including their outdoor spaces.
“According to a recent American Institute of Architects report, demand for outdoor living space has grown by 70 percent since 2013.”
Home owners want to create a comfortable space outdoors as well as indoors where they can relax. It’s also a low-cost way to expand the square footage of your home. Plus, in the warmer weather, it’s more fun to be outside.
When designing your outdoor space, here are a few furnishing trends to consider:
Outdoor furniture and decor made with mixed materials adds a custom feel and variety to your outdoor space.
Steel and teak combined are beautiful and durable materials for the outdoor elements. Mixed materials create a visually stunning combination.
Whether it’s steel and teak or rope, wicker or aluminum, mixed materials can bring a new look to your space.
The blending of styles brings a fresh perspective that is unique to your outdoor space.
Adding colorful outdoor decor can change the look and feel of the space.
Create a dining set with harmonious monochrome colors or change it up with chairs of different colors.
Inside to Outside
Expand on your indoor style theme with an outdoor lounge set and various outdoor decor items to create a cozy feel.
Adding greenery and lighting completes the look.
Lighting adds a sense of wonder to an outdoor space. It can light the way via stepping stones or a path or light up the space like stars in the sky.
Whether it’s with decorative outdoor lamps, lanterns or with string lights, lighting your outdoor space can set the mood whether it’s bright for dining or darker for lounging.
