Visiting your backyard can be a perfect mini-vacation. When the weather gets warmer, convert your outdoor living space into a family-friendly retreat with these great ideas.
Outfit your patio with a comfortable sitting area and gain an outdoor family room. Rugged fabrics make furniture more durable and give you lots of options when it comes to decorative touches, like pillows, to show off your personal style!
Grab some lawn chairs or picnic blankets and transform your backyard into a “walk-in” movie theater. Simply hang a sheet in your backyard (on the back of your house or against a fence) to make a screen, pop some popcorn, and project one of your favorite films. You can purchase a DVD projector from any electronics store – a great investment for future fun – or rent one online.
Touted as great for your back and for your mood, a hammock is a simple addition to your outdoor living area that can make you feel like you’re on holiday, every day. The space between two sturdy trees provides you with a place to hang your hammock so you can enjoy some leisure time. No trees in your yard that fit the bill? Then buy a stand, hang your hammock and rock your way to relaxation.
