How to Create Your Best Outdoor Oasis

Melissa Enciso

Your home is where you should feel the most comfortable, and your outdoor living space is essential to making that happen! Outdoor spaces are quickly taking over as the go-to place for entertaining and relaxing in many homes--it can be a place for your friends and family to gather or just a place for you to relax and unwind.

Creating the perfect outdoor oasis is easier than you might think – all it takes is a little bit of planning, some creative ideas, and the proper outdoor items. Whatever your vision, we’ve got some tips on how to make your dream space a reality.

Where do I start?

Determine what you want your space to look like. Think about how much time you want to spend in the yard, what activities you want to take place there, how much money you're willing to spend, and which areas of the yard will be used most often.

Choose your colors! Once you know what you want your space to look like, it's time to take it a step further with creativity. If your house has neutral colors, go for vibrant colors in your patio or garden. If you have a warmer tone, try using cooler tones for the patio area. While you want your yard to feel like an extension of your home, making it feel like a getaway is important. Staycation vibes right?

Plan to decorate for comfort and style. A well-designed outdoor living space should be comfortable for year-round use and offer plenty of seating options for you and your guests. Style means choosing pieces that will withstand all kinds of weather while still looking great year after year, like aluminum or resin patio furniture sets designed with heavy-duty materials (think stainless steel or powder-coated aluminum frames).

Set Up Your Outdoor Living Room

Your outdoor living room doesn't have to be the same as the indoor one — it can be completely different! Consider how you want this area to look and what kind of furniture will work best. Use pieces that fit together in an interesting way, but also complement each other. To get started, we recommend creating an entertaining, unique conversation space.

Consider adding an outdoor sofa like Best Choice Product’s Rope Woven Sectional, L-Shape Sofa Set w/ Detachable Lounger, (pictured to the left) which also comes with a matching table! That’s a win-win! This sofa is not like your indoor sofa–it features fade and water-resistant fabric, so it stands up to the sun and the rain. This outdoor centerpiece comes in four stylish colors to match your yard’s aesthetic.

Have a smaller space to work with? No problem! Instead of a sofa, try a patio set, like Best Choice Product’s 3-Piece Patio Woven Rope Acapulco Rocking Chair Bistro SetThis durable chair and table set adds comfort and style to any outdoor oasis. 

Create Your Dream Garden

A garden is a place where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy the pleasures of nature.
