In recent years outdoor living spaces have changed so much. Gone are the days of a simple patio table and umbrella making up your outdoor space. Patios have now become an extension of the home living space. People are adding value and square footage to their homes by creating incredible outdoor living rooms and kitchens. Outdoor living spaces are getting more use than ever before, which means that furniture makers have really upped their game. Not only are they building furniture that is better quality and more durable, but the design elements are quite impressive. Check out the new trends for Summer 2018 to see how you can update your backyard.
Many of the outdoor furniture pieces that you know and love are getting a bit of a change up. Gone are the days of small bistro style tables, as large outdoor tables come on the scene. People are loving the idea of large, family style outdoor dining. Everyone still loves the idea of outdoor lounging, but they are giving up traditional lounge chairs in favor of hammocks and outdoor daybeds. Finally, outdoor living rooms are very hot right now. Outdoor couches and loveseats arranged with coffee tables and end tables create the perfect atmosphere for entertaining.
Whether it is indoors or outdoors, everywhere you look this year you are probably seeing neutrals with bright pops of color.
