Create Your Backyard Paradise
This summer create a staycation paradise right in your backyard that you can enjoy with your close friends and family! There’s something special about having your own space that you can enjoy whenever you need a little R&R.
When booking a vacation at a resort, do you typically review the resort map to make sure your room is conveniently located near the pool, beach, or restaurants? Your backyard should be no different. To start planning your backyard retreat, make sure you’re considering the entire yard and map it out to create the right flow. Think of your backyard as an extension of your home so that the space is cohesive with the rest of your décor.
The first stop on your backyard resort map is the patio. Here you want to choose outdoor furniture that is functional and inviting. Make sure there’s enough seating for your entire family, so you can all enjoy the space together. It’s important to include a storage area for your cushions so that you can use them year after year. A Keter Patio Store is made just for that! Not only is it completely weather resistant, but you can also paint it to go with your décor.
The next area is the grill station. This is the perfect place to set up an outdoor dining area that includes a table, chairs and a patio umbrella for extra shade. For smaller spaces, a bar height table is a great option and can be accompanied by Keter Cozy Stools. The knit-inspired seat will not warp, unravel or fade and they will add a nice pop of color.
Your bathing suit, a pool float and ice-cold drinks are what you’ll need for the next staycation spot. If your backyard has a pool, give it a resort feel by adding sun loungers, a drink cooler and lots of pool toys for your family to enjoy. Keep your drinks cold with a Keter Pacific Cool Bar which doubles as a side table, perfect to use right between your sun loungers.
To keep your pool accessories neat and organized a Denali 150g Deck Box is an easy-to-use option if children are using the pool. The lid is attached with hydraulic pistons that pull the top completely open and shuts slowly with minimal effort.
To make sure you get the peace and quiet you need from your staycation, make sure to add plants around your yard or by the side that the most noise comes from. Adding hedges, trees and other plants will act as a wall by blocking and absorbing incoming noises from neighbors or a busy road while providing extra privacy.
Escape to the staycation of your dreams right in your backyard! Creating a relaxing and fun space for everyone to enjoy and spend time together is the ultimate summer project.
