So you’ve finally finished the outdoor living space of your dreams.  You added a custom built outdoor kitchen and poolside dining area and you can’t wait to show them off. Looking around, you might find that it needs a little something more. Some design elements that will really make the space your own.

Form and Function

When you’re choosing accessories for your backyard living space, it’s important to combine form with function. Items should be beautiful but serve a purpose. Outdoor elements that sit neglected will just look like junk or clutter.

1) Firepit

An outdoor fire pit is a perfect accessory for any backyard oasis. It provides warmth on cold nights, which will extend the number of hours your backyard can be used. Modernizations in design mean that the simple fire pits of the past are gone. Custom fire pits can be as elaborate as you’d like, utilizing either real firewood or gas. Add diamond nuggets to your gas fire pit to create a magical, sparkling sight.

2) Lights

The right outdoor lighting can create a calming and safe environment for guests and family members. Path lighting allows visitors to navigate their way around your backyard.  Thoughtfully placed sconce lights and lanterns cast soft light throughout your patio space, while overhead lighting facilitates practical tasks like cooking.

3) Kitchen Luxuries

An outdoor kitchen is a fantastic investment and a great place to host a dinner party.  With the growing popularity of outdoor kitchens, there are no limits to what you can add to yours.  Ice makers, elaborate gas grills, refrigerators and commercial grade cooktops. If you love to cook, you can have an outdoor kitchen with as many amenities (or more) as your indoor kitchen!

4) Pillows & Blankets

Adding a soft touch to your outdoor living space makes it feel even more like an extension of your home. There is more variety than ever in outdoor-safe textiles, from rugs to blankets.  Gather around your fire pit in comfort with the right accessories.

5) Entertainment

Your outdoor living space may include a covered patio, which is ideal for a wall mounted television.  While the kids play in the pool you can relax and watch tv.  Host a movie premiere party with friends and invest in a projector so everyone can see.  

Adding a Personal Touch

As you accessorize your outdoor space, it’s important to incorporate your personality into everything. If you love the ocean, incorporate tones of blue and green.  For a zen-like atmosphere, use lots of natural materials and neutral colors. Your outdoor space is an extension of your indoor design and should reflect that level of care.  

The Best Outdoor Accessories For Your Space

Once you’ve placed the perfect finishing touches to your backyard oasis, take a step back and admire your work.  You’ve created an entirely new living space, with all the conveniences of the indoors, but in the fresh air of the great outdoors.
