Our Favorite Outdoor Design Trends

June 16, 2022

The summer season is in full swing, and with our summer maintenance all caught up, it’s time to turn our attention toward the more exciting aspects of getting our homes ready for summer—updating our outdoor living decorations. At McGuinn Hybrid Homes, our team knows just how important outdoor living spaces are, so read on to see some of our favorite ways to incorporate the top trends of the season into your outdoor decorations this year.

Focus on outdoor entertainment

Having the perfect outdoor entertainment setup is crucial for summer nights spent under the stars—so this year, ensure that your home is ready to host all of your friends and family with an updated kitchen area. 

With some incredibly spacious outdoor living options included in our floor plans, you’ll easily be able to find one that fits your needs. Sometimes, all it takes is a new grill, some additional counter space for prep work or a larger dining area to help accommodate all of your friends and family. Whatever you end up doing, when you take the time to update your outdoor kitchen and dining area, you can rest assured that your summer nights will be ones for the memory books. With plenty of furniture options available to spruce up any outdoor area, you’ll easily be able to stick to your budget without giving up any of your design dreams. 

As you continue to keep entertainment options top-of-mind when updating your outdoor living spaces, you’ll also want to add a bit of coziness to your outdoor space for when the conversations last long into the night. One of the easiest ways to create an incredibly inviting area for any type of summer party is by adding in additional lighting. Whether you line your walkways with path lights or hang string lights over your seating areas—you’ll instantly create a cozy atmosphere that also allows you to comfortably stay outside no matter the time.

Create an outdoor paradise

When it comes to your outdoor living space, creating a calming oasis requires a minimalistic design style to take center stage—and by adding a few clean and simple pieces throughout your outdoor living space, you can easily capture this design technique. 

You’ll want to keep your color choices focused on a more neutral color palette wherever you can, but neutral doesn’t mean boring. With an almost endless amount of paint coming in shades of green, blue, pink and white, you’ll easily be able to pick the perfect paint color to match your space. 

Moving on to furniture items, you’ll want to focus on adding in pieces that are sleek, simple and modern. Cream colored cushions on your outdoor sofa and chairs can add just the right amount of comfort to the space, and when you add in a pop of color within a rug or throw pillows—your backyard space will soon be the talk of the neighborhood.
