Customers often ask for advice on how to turn their outdoor space into a relaxing oasis. So as we look forward to spring weather and lazy summer days, we thought we’d give you a few tips for relaxing, enjoying, and entertaining your guests outside in the fresh air!

It’s no secret that people naturally gravitate toward spaces that invite them to sit and stay awhile. Make your porch, patio, or backyard more appealing by creating areas that pull people in and beckon for family and friends to spend a little extra time. Don’t settle for outdoor furniture that’s simply functional; find pieces that are luxurious and comfortable as well! Porch swings and daybed swings are icons of a true Southern patio or porch, and a scattering of soft pillows and cushions will make the area instantly cozier.

Make sure your outdoor space is nicely lit. Various outdoor lighting options offer soft and decorative lighting and create a glowing ambiance throughout the evening. Lighted pathways generate a feeling of magical enchantment and will make you want to take a stroll on a beautiful summer night. Surrounding the area with luscious green foliage will create a tropical atmosphere and the perfect place to make unforgettable summer memories.

Can you think of anything more enjoyable than the sun shining warmly on your face or the soft, cool breeze on a warm summer night? Turn your outdoor space into a refuge so that you can experience that any time you’d like, right in your backyard.
