Staycation Vacation – Gainesville Restoration and Remodeling. We hope many of you are considering updating your outdoor entertaining area based on our blog earlier this month. Then, once your new space is constructed, fill it with things that will make staying home even more desirable. These ideas will spruce up your newly renovated outdoor area! Who needs a vacation when you can just take a staycation?
Keep it casual
Casual equals comfort. Consider how you’ve decorated your living room and bring some of those same elements; such as a comfy couch, lamps, and mirror – outside. Don’t make yourself choose between the comfort of your living room or the pleasure of your porch. Merge them to create a truly unique outdoor experience.
Add a breeze
Florida weather normally gives off a nice breeze, but for days when it’s lacking turn on a fan. A ceiling fan can be a practical and decorative addition.
Also, in lieu of a standard privacy fence, add a wall of shrubs or flowers. So, if you’re looking for a smaller project; hang several plants around the shaded deck to add both fragrance and curb appeal.
For concentrated glows choose rustic lanterns. For more saturated but soft lighting, hang strings of white lights from the rafters. Sunlight is great for daytime, but these two tricks will make the evenings magical.
Now that the setting and mood are completely relaxing and comfortable; stream your favorite tunes through an all-weather sound system, which can be found at your local electronics store.
Nothing will want to make you stay home more than having this personal retreat in your backyard. Enjoy your summer evenings with close family and friends. Please let us know how these tips worked out for you on the Gainesville Restoration and Remodeling Facebook page!
