Outdoor Living Trends for Spring 2020

With beautiful weather, the kids out of school and families spending more time at home – there is no better time to enjoy one’s own backyard oasis. Getting some fresh air, splashing in the pool or simply sitting in the sun and relaxing with a good book are all ways to unwind and ignore the stresses of everyday life… if only for a bit.

While the pool is a central focus of any family’s backyard oasis, there are multiple ways to add the backyard to create an extension of the home — with functional and beautiful areas designated for entertainment, relaxation and functional cooking (and dining!).

Garden Rooms are one popular trend for the backyard of 2020. In addition to fauna and flowers, considering planting herbs and produce to enjoy upon harvest! Garden rooms can be somewhat enclosed or give the appearance and feel of enclosure through shrubs and trees

Window walls are an ideal way to meld the indoors and outdoors for those in the midst of a spring remodel or build. Without a total overhaul, removing blinds, shutters or heavy curtains in favor of “disappearing” window treatments can help create the illusion of a seamless indoor/outdoor environment. Keeping those doors and windows open to the let the fresh air in is recommended now before “air conditioning weather” kicks in!

Complete kitchens are being built out among outdoor environments that include refrigerators, grills, stone pizza ovens, wine chillers and more. For those the love the outdoors, cooking, dining and entertaining. From built-in bars to firepits with an array of colorful stones to match any décor, there is no limit to the customization an outdoor kitchen can encompass.

For those looking to simply freshen up their already amazing outdoor oasis, some fresh pillows and cushions for an outdoor sofa, chairs, loungers and more can give the backyard a whole new look. Instead of following a specific trend, choose colors, patterns and décor (such as an umbrella and twinkling lights to set the mood for a night time dip) that matches the home’s personality or serves as an extension of a getaway — such as a favorite blue-crystal water beach or a lush green jungle.

As always, the professional technicians at Aquaman Pools LLC can keep the main focus of the backyard — the pool — sparkling, safe and clean for spring entertainment… and enjoyment all year round! Pool owners are encouraged to let the experts take care of the pool, while they enjoy their entire yard!
