Backyard Rooms with a view are easy to obtain when you plan your space properly. If you are new to setting up your living space outdoors, then take some lessons here before you start.
Backyard rooms are a wonderful idea and if you don’t use your yard to it’s fullest potential yet, maybe when you are finished reading this, you will rethink the use of your outdoor space. Today, we need to take advantage of all opportunities to relax and enjoy the space and time we have. Using your backyard as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of every day life is a great start.
Planning your Space
Planning your space is probably one of the most important things you can do before you actually set to work. This can be done quite easily, by just drawing out what is already there, or if you are in a new building, draw out the space you have to work with. This does not have to be fancy, but it should be accurate. If you have a 40 foot oak tree in the middle of the yard, you will have to find a way to work around this. You are not going to be able to move it, that is certain.
Better Homes and Gardens is a great place to start looking at designs. This one has incorporated lots of great ideas and possibilities. You can add and subtract whatever is not to your liking, but it is a start. I am particularly drawn to this landscape plan, because it has lovely seating areas for entertaining as well as green space and garden areas. My Favorite Design
A beautiful Gazebo will be a little added luxury where you will find yourself enjoying the backyard, sitting and reading, or even working on a project or two. It’s a great place to invite friends and family to sit and unwind, and just enjoy their company. Because you are under a canopy, worries about too much sun exposure need not even enter your mind. Your family and friends can enjoy the outdoors for hours without concern.
Now once you have the canopy all set up in the right spot, make room for some chairs, tables and maybe a nice fire pit, for those cool summer evenings when the outdoors is just calling you. Just think of all the times you will spend out there once you have it arranged to suit your needs and wants. I can see the family gathered around the fire pit toasting marshmallows on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Any holiday will be that much nicer in your yard with some creature comforts to keep you relaxed and renewed. You will be the host of the neighborhood, where family and friends will be anxiously awaiting their invite to your home.
I love my Backyard Room and I’m sure if you take sometime to arrange your space, you will find that you are enjoying your backyard room, much more often.
