There’s nothing quite like the peace and tranquility you can find in your own backyard. From the freshly cut grass and blooming flowers of spring and summer to the crisp falling leaves and fresh sparkles of snow across the lawn in fall and winter, you're sure to discover joy no matter the season.

With each new seasonal change, one thing always remains the same. The chance to make more happy memories in and around your home all year long. As we embark further into the chilly season, let’s take a look at these 10 ways you can brighten up your outdoor living spaces no matter the season.

10 Ways to Brighten Up Your Outdoor Living Space

Depending on where you live and the amount of time and energy you’re willing to put in, there are dozens of ways you can add comfort, convenience, and fun to your outdoor spaces. Here are our top 10 favorite ways to transform your outdoor spaces into a year-round showcase for your creativity!

1. Fire Pits, Fireplaces, and Heaters

Want to enjoy your backyard a little later into the year but worried about battling the cold? Consider adding a heated element! A fire pit in the yard, an outdoor fireplace, or a small heater on your patio can all provide a warm and cozy space to help you enjoy spending time out back without compromising on comfort!

2. Hot Tub

Nothing says luxury like your own private hot tub! Take your backyard to the next level with a hot tub that perfectly compliments your pool. That way, you can enjoy a soothing dip all year long!

3. New Weatherproof Furniture

When was the last time you had those outdoor cushions replaced? If you’re in the market to replace your current outdoor furniture or looking to buy a new set altogether, consider weatherproof cushions, pillows, and fixtures. Weatherproofing your outdoor furniture will allow you to better preserve your investment and will help you enjoy more time enjoying your backyard sanctuary!

4. Plants that can Withstand Any Season

Depending on the area you live in, consider adding plants to your backyard that can last through any season. Plants can add a pop of color to your relaxation and entertaining spaces without taking up much space or time commitments.

5. Updated Decor

A new season is a perfect excuse for updated decor! Consider Backyard Accents like towels, pillow covers, and pool floats that perfectly match your pool liner. You can also pair it with other seasonal decorations, festive lights, and displays that demonstrate your creative side!

6. Safety Cover and Fences

For many people, peace and tranquility require knowing everything is safe and secure. Consider adding safety features like a new Safety Cover for your swimming pool or removable fencing that can keep your family, pets, and guests safe. That way, you can enjoy added peace of mind while being outdoors.

7. Build a Snowman Or Snow Maze

Your outdoor spaces can be just as fun when it’s chilly! Try building and decorating a snowman or snow maze that showcases your family’s personality. It’s a great way to add a cute (and temporary) decoration to your yard while continuing to create fun memories with loved ones.

8. Awning

Want to enjoy your yard more in the summer, but it doesn’t have the right amount of shade to be comfortable? Consider adding an awning, pergola, or gazebo! They can help cool down your yard while protecting you from the sun and rain so you can keep enjoying outdoor fun no matter the weather! Plus, taking advantage of adding these features in the off-season can help ensure you’re ready to enjoy your space as soon as the weather warms up!

9. Patio Enclosure

Want to extend the summertime fun on your patio into the off-season? Consider adding an insulated patio enclosure. They can help keep the warmth in during the fall and winter so you can enjoy more of your outdoor space no matter the weather!

10. Grill Pit or Outdoor Kitchen Space

Who said grilling is just for summer?! With an outdoor grill pit or kitchen, you can enjoy BBQ whenever your heart desires!

Why it’s Important to Make your Outdoor Spaces Comfortable

Research suggests that spending more time outside is positively linked to improved mental and physical health. In fact, one study states that spending just 2 hours a week outside, performing any activity, can reduce anxiety, promote creativity, and contribute to heart health.

A well-designed and comfortable outdoor space can help encourage you to spend more time outdoors while fostering those good feelings that can boost your mood. Plus, taking the extra time to spruce up your outdoor space for each season will make a positive investment into your home’s value and encourage more family time and fun memories.
