Four Creative Ways of Creating a Private Oasis in Your Backyard Feb 25th, 2016 Your backyard doesn’t have to be boring. Your backyard can actually be an extension of your home—an outdoor living space. If you don’t mind putting in a little effort, or working with an expert who can do the work for you, you can turn your backyard into a private oasis. Here are four ideas on how to turn your backyard into a place you will love to spend time! Outdoor Kitchens – Outdoor kitchens are one of the latest trends in outdoor living. Think of taking the family barbecue to a whole new level! An outdoor kitchen will have everything you need to create a full meal, outside. Plus, you’ll have seating areas for you and your loved ones. This is an especially great idea for those who love to entertain and who do not have space in the house to do so properly. Water Features – What is more relaxing than water? A fountain, pond or another water feature is the ideal way to turn your boring backyard into something relaxing, inviting and truly oasis-like. What is so great is that there are many different options, so whether you want something rustic, sophisticated, urban or unique, there is probably a water feature that can meet your needs. Covered Sitting Areas – Sitting areas in your backyard do not have to mean an old patio set or picnic table. Today’s sitting areas are more like a living room and less like a campsite. Covered sitting areas mean that you can enjoy the great outdoors even if there happens to be a bit of rain or the sun is at its brightest. Plus, it gives you the privacy that is necessary for a true outdoor oasis area. Utilize Natural Beauty – When trying to decide what type of décor to utilize in your backyard, you do not have to look far. The best decorator in sight is Mother Nature herself. Natural beauty is around us; it is just a matter of learning how to use it. Perhaps you want to plant a flower garden or hang some ivy on that fence. Utilize the greenery (and other colors) in nature’s palette to achieve your goal of a captivating outdoor space that is appealing to everyone!
