There’s a big difference between a back yard, and a “back yard.” Remember when you and your spouse first started out in life?
You may have used lawn chairs to eat at your dinner table. You slept on the floor in sleeping bags. And back yard furniture? Forget about it – you lived in an apartment and didn’t even have a back yard of your own.
Now you do. So what can you do to make your current back yard more luxurious and comfortable than a typical one with just a few lawn chairs and a rickety old table your in-laws gave you?
With today’s patio furniture, you have nearly limitless options as to what you can do.
So here are some ideas:
Now, don’t think of just any old umbrella when you envision this. Instead, consider one of the most elegant designs you can imagine. You don’t just get shade. You get shade and style.
The same goes for awnings. Except, they’re a little fancier, as they retract back and forth from your home.
Forget about the standard black grill your mom and dad had. Replace it with the latest rage in grilling – ceramic grills. Sear or roast your favorite gourmet meal so you and your guests always have a blast.
Forget the old cooler you normally think of. Instead, store your drinks in ones fully customized for red-blooded Texans. Get one that looks like a wooden box used in the Lone Star State back in the 1800s to spice up your back yard.
Forget your father’s favorite lawn chair that barely stood up. Comfortable to him – maybe. But to you – no. Instead, get a lawn chair, but this time decorate it with pillows that resist rain and fading caused by UV rays.
Now, you can truly relax.
Have a fence? Want to spice up the side of the house that faces your back yard? What about your garage?
Distract your guest’s attention from the ordinary with any kind of mirror or wall hanging you can imagine. You will be able to find a combination that perfectly represents your unique style.
With those five options available (and technically much more), you can easily transform your back yard into the luxurious haven you’ve always envisioned.
