Tampa Bay Outdoor Living Trends for 2018
With staycations on the rise, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of us are choosing to explore the many resort-style outdoor living options the outdoor living design professionals can create right in the comfort of our own backyards. Depending on the architecture of your home and the ambiance you want to create, any one of these Tampa Bay outdoor living trends will be sure to help you create the outdoor space you have always dreamed.
Open Air Living Rooms
Requiring no walls and only as much shade as you like, your open air living room will provide you with a cozy front row view to mother nature. Your open air living room can incorporate any number of features you want, including:
- Plush outdoor furniture: From woven wicker to sleek metal frames, choose furniture that is crafted from durable materials and that is comfortable
- Lighting: Lighting is critical for keeping your open air living room safe, but don’t forget to add some accent lighting to add excitement and to highlight key areas of your Tampa Bay outdoor living space
- Decorative flooring: Consider incorporating stained, stamped or stenciled concrete decking and walkways in and around your living area. You can enhance the room’s visual interest by placing down a weatherproof rug
Another great option to incorporate into your outdoor living space (or into your open air living room) is a fire feature. A hearth or fireplace is a classic choice, while fire tables, fire bowls and cauldrons will add flair and aesthetic excitement to your Brandon backyard once the sun goes down.
Meditation and Yoga Gardens
Design an outdoor living space that will evoke a sense of peace and tranquility by creating your very own meditation and yoga garden. Pick a spot that is quiet, that offers a view, and then start incorporating items like water features (the sound of running water is sure to soothe away any stress), air cleansing plants and shading.
Expect to also see an increase in water and energy saving outdoor living spaces. There will be a major upswing in eco-friendly landscaping ideas this year, too, where plants and flowers that are native to our local environment will be in greater demand than ever!
Keeping plants lush and green during the hotter spring and summer months can be a challenge, which is why we expect to see an increase in synthetic backyard landscaping materials used this year. Artificial turf, stones, and plants can naturally add elegance and freshness to any Tampa Bay outdoor living space.
