Over recent years people have put more effort into creating a whole new living experience in their outside space. The days of a simple table and chairs being enough to get the job done seem to be in the past. Home owners have started to realize that the design of their yard can be just as important as the design of the interior of their home.
If you are looking to breathe new life into your yard, there several styles that you may want to consider. Here are three of the most popular yard style choices for 2019 that should spark your imagination.
Opting for a rustic feel
In a modern-day environment where the joy of disposable materials, such as plastic, has faded, rustic styling is popular. This styling concentrates on a plainer and sturdier feel that is closer to nature. It’s about being individual and raw in the outside space that you create, rather than opting for a mass produced and ‘fake’ feel. Materials such as reclaimed driftwood and old railway sleepers are being incorporated into yard designs where clean lines and perfection are not the aim.
A cozy back yard
Similar in some ways to rustic styling, cozy yard design is more about feeling at home than concentrating on appearance. That being said, you can still have an outside space with the wow factor, if you opt for cozy styling. You can combine splashes of color with softer furnishings for an eye-popping outdoor space that also delivers on comfort. You may even want to add a fire pit, to crank up the cozy factor by a few notches.
Minimalism at its best
Well, away from the worlds of rustic charm and coziness is minimalism. This type of yard styling is all about clean lines and a fresh, modern look. Large granite pavers are an ideal choice to be included in a minimalist design, and they can be teamed with furnishings made from glass and stainless steel.
For anyone who wants to add a little warmth to a minimalist style, using shades of greige might be the answer. Greige has been a popular choice for interior design over the last few years and it’s starting to appear more outside as well. It’s the perfect neutral shade to use as it combines the practicality of grey with the warmer tones of beige.
Styling a yard is always going to come down to personal taste in the end. Some people opt for comfort ahead of everything else; others want to create an outdoor living space that is a real talking point. There is no right or wrong when it comes to choosing a style option, as long as you are happy with the result. The styles that we have featured in this article include something for everyone. Hopefully they will provide you with the inspiration you need to start designing a yard which is perfect for you and your family.
