Cool Tricks to Designing the Perfect Backyard

You want to add a little color and flair to your home’s backyard.  But you don’t know where to start.  There are plenty of cool items you can invest in to breathe a little life into your backyard.  Here are just a few affordable, cool ideas for designing the perfect backyard oasis.

Try DIY projects for your garden

If you have a home garden in your backyard, why not try to spruce it up a little bit?  You can do this by getting involved with DIY projects with items you already have at home.  Get those dollar store tiki torches that you always had and put them in glass bottles.  Dress up the bottles by putting colored marbles into them.  Lighting up these torches will be great in staving away the insects in the summer.

You could also consider using flowerpots to make outdoor tables.  Find a well-sized serving tray or pan to place on top for a sturdy, flat surface.  You can also redesign your patio table by using wallpaper.  Beautiful wallpaper will give it that pop of color your table needs.

Cool Tricks to Designing the Perfect Backyard

Give your Patio a New Look

You looked at your patio recently and it’s becoming clear it needs a makeover.  In addition to getting creative on your table, there are plenty of design ideas for the whole patio.  You can add stylish outdoor furniture like chairs and loveseats to match your table.  Add a fire pit to your patio for you and your family to warm up in the cold seasons.  We at Longhorn Solar Screens sell outdoor patio screens that provide flexible shading from the sun, rain, wind, and insects.

Add an Outdoor Kitchen

For people who love to cook, adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard is a great idea.  The possibilities are endless to design a nice outdoor kitchen.  To keep it simple, add in a built-in grill with burner features and a smoker.  But if you want a fully designed kitchen, a sink, stovetop, refrigerator, and a pizza oven would be great additions.

Designing the perfect backyard oasis involves a lot of creativity, but it doesn’t have to be hard.  We at Longhorn Solar Screens have the right, quality patio screens and shades for your outdoor needs.  Contact us today for more information on our products.
