As the weather starts to heat up here in Florida, the pool and your outdoor area might seem to call your name much more often! If your backyard or patio isn’t quite up to your liking yet, try one of these ideas to give it a new look (and more functionality) for spring.

Invest in new furniture. If you’re not up to a large-scale renovation project, but still want to drastically change the look of your patio, new furniture is a quick way to accomplish that! Switching from wicker to wrought iron, for example, can completely change the feel of your patio and backyard—and make it easier for you to entertain family and friends outdoors!

Add a retractable screen system. Room additions are a great bonus to any home and can offer you an entirely new space to entertain in—when it comes time to sell your home, they also add a great bit to your home’s market value! But if you prefer an addition that integrates the outdoors with indoor living, a screen room with a retractable screen system might be best for you—when you want to enjoy a summer storm from the comfort of an “indoors” sofa, you can do that… but if you’d rather leave the screens up for a party or day outdoors, you can do that too.

Create a new waterscape. Adding a pool or changing the look of your current pool can be big projects—but you’ll appreciate them every day! Whether you’re improving your current one or constructing a new pool, look for ways to customize its look and add some personality to it with a built-in hot tub, waterfall, rocky landscape or other design.

Plant a serenity garden. If you’d like to get into gardening this year, consider adding a sitting area or small fountain (depending on the amount of space you have to work with) to make your garden a retreat in itself! You’ll be able to do reading, enjoy a morning cup of coffee, or simply unwind surrounded by beautiful, vibrantly-colored flowers whenever you want.

Add some structure. The addition of a pergola or trellis to your backyard offers up more space to plant beautiful springtime flowers—these additions can serve as outdoor focal points on their own or supplement an already-thriving garden!
