Design Ideas For Outdoor Living Spaces

For the first half of the 20th century, interior decor was the hallmark of any residential property and little attention was paid to the design and construction of outdoor living spaces. But around the 1950s, a marked shift emerged in the world of property enhancement, and suddenly the backyard became an essential component of any welcoming and functional home. 

Outdoor living spaces have undergone massive improvements in the last few decades, as demonstrated by industry innovations in patio furniture, landscape construction, and even heavy-duty appliances suitable for all types of weather conditions. Twelve Oaks Landscape Co. provides Chattanooga and surrounding Tennessee communities with professional-grade contracting services for outdoor living spaces. In this article, we’ll review some of the latest and greatest design ideas for backyard living spaces, giving you the inspiration you need to get ahead on those yard improvement projects before the heat of summer hits! 

Monochromatic & Modern

Almost any homeowner can picture the arrangement of a basic backyard patio: a few wicker chairs, a table, and perhaps a charcoal or gas grill. There’s nothing wrong with a minimalistic design approach to your outdoor living space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of fun playing around with modern design trends like monochromatic color schemes. 

In lush areas like Chattanooga, there are a variety of colors that can complement the surrounding greenery and rolling hills. Many of our clients opt for all-white concepts, from patio furniture to tabletops to masonry. The lighter hues are not only elegant and timeless, but they also act as a natural heat reflector, keeping your backyard oasis as cool as a cucumber all summer long. 

Hearth & Soul

Outdoor living areas of the past often had few options for outdoor heating elements. While some may have included a small barbecue pit, even the best-selling charco-broiler back then would have trouble measuring up to the aesthetic and functional appeal of a modern outdoor fire pit. Incorporating both rustic and refined design elements, the outdoor fire pit combines the natural allure of a campfire, the comfort of a fireplace, and the durability of a stone hearth. Use it as a centerpiece for social gatherings, a heat source on cooler nights, or an open-air oven that cooks all of your favorite summertime dishes. And be sure to take advantage of the countless options for customization, from stone to copper to cast-iron steel.

Outdoor Kitchen Concepts

If you love to cook as much as you love the outdoors, but grills aren’t your preferred option for food preparation, outdoor kitchens give you the best of both worlds. Thanks to modern advancements in culinary gadgets, nearly any kitchen appliance or tool is now available in an outdoor-friendly design. From bar centers to refrigerators to complete dining area sets, there’s an outdoor kitchen concept for all kinds of chefs.
