There’s something special about the springtime. Maybe it’s the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead, or the excitement of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space.
Let’s look at five ways to enjoy your NewStyle Home courtyard and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.
1) Turn your courtyard into a 4 seasons room
You may opt to turn your private courtyard into a 4 seasons room. That way you have a close connection with the outdoors, while maintaining the comfort of being inside. Turn up the comfort factor even more and select a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and lots of cozy blankets for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year (and all year, really), we promise your “outdoor living room” will get just as much use as your indoor space!
2) Make s’mores with the neighbors or grandkids
Your private courtyard is the perfect spot for an outdoor fire table. You can find them in an array of sizes to match your home’s style. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. What was once only an occasional camping experience can be an everyday treat at home.
3) Create a garden oasis
The beauty of having your own courtyard is that you get to make it completely your own. That may mean you’ll want the chance to hone your gardening skills. Many types of flowers, vegetables, and herbs grow best in containers and pots, which make them easier to take care of. Not to mention, gardening is a great hobby for mental health. Boost your mood, feel more connected to nature, and spend more time outside — all in the privacy of your own home!
4) Let the light shine
Lighting can make or break interior design, but did you know you can use light to completely transform your outdoor space, too? Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make your courtyard cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
Take advantage of the ideal climate by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
However you choose to dress up your private courtyard, it’s sure to be a highlight of your NewStyle home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors. For more information, please contact us.
