Breathtaking Ideas for Creating a Picture-Perfect Backyard

Now that we’re officially moving out in about a month, we’re slowly looking around for our options. We want our home to be perfect for our growing family. Is there enough room for the kids to play around on? Can we entertain the guest and family? How about celebrating milestones and occasions? All of these are something we are accounting for. What we quickly realized is that there’s really no such thing as the perfect home unless you make a few changes and addition.

One of the things that are very important to us is family. We love spending time with family, and we are more than excited to open our new home to any of our family and even friends who wish to visit and stay. I also love having my own private staycation spot as I am not too crazy about spending a lot of time on public places. We currently live in a townhome, and while I love our community pool, I still prefer lounging on our own backyard.

So how do we achieve the picture perfect backyard? Here are a few ideas that I came up with …

1. Outdoor Furniture
Putting outdoor furniture will add design and color to your entertainment area. Aside from being able to host guest and parties, it will also create the perfect lounge to relax and unwind. Some outdoor furniture pieces that would surely elevate any backyard are as follow:

  • Gazebo or a Flower-Covered Pergola
  • Swing sofas
  • Day Bed
  • Hammock
  • Lounger

2. Outdoor Bar
Putting up a bar is going to be one of your entertainment area’s highlight. Partying at home is never a problem if you have this in your backyard. Let’s be honest, partying, and celebrating at home is much more comfortable and sometimes friendlier in the budget. Perfect for the family who loves to have a frequent get-together. It’s an excellent addition for having a staycation spot at the comforts of your own property.

3. Outdoor TV
Level up your watching experience by setting up an outdoor TV. Date night? Watch romantic movies under the star. Big game? Watch it together with your friends. Whether you want to host a fun family get together or host the most memorable backyard party, the Veranda Series of SunBriteTVs is the perfect way to make your personal outdoor space a real favorite destination. Watching TV outside is fun!

The biggest takeaway? The Veranda Series of SunBriteTVs are explicitly designed for outdoor use. In fact, SunBriteTV Veranda is a family of weatherproof televisions that are engineered to survive just about any climate (in North America)! You can expect it to resist even the harshes effects of rain, snow, dust, insects, and even extreme temperatures.

4. Swimming Pool
If you have the budget, consider investing in an in-ground swimming pool in your backyard area. If you have your own swimming pool, you don’t have to go far if you want to relax, unwind, and bond with your family. You can swim anytime you want, and you can even prepare a few picnic snacks to make it extra fun. Majority of kids love to swim, so if you have a growing family, swimming is another way to bond with them while they are having fun.

5. Spa
Imagine having your own spa. Crazy right? Instead of spending money on a spa outside, invest in building a small spa in your backyard. Not only you can use it to relax, but it can also be a highlight in your entertainment area. Since building a spa is going to be pricey, here’s a tip on how you can save a couple of bucks. Use an old vacant room and beds to lessen the expenses. It is also a wise idea if you will use your extra towels, linens, bed sheet, and pillows at home. Another good thing when you have your own spa at home is that you can use your preferred oils, lotions, and other ointments that you like.

6. Outdoor Kitchen
An outdoor kitchen is not that common since most homes are just a few steps away from their actual kitchen. But, if you would like to level up your backyard, consider adding an outdoor cooking area even if it is not a full kitchen. It will be an excellent way to entertain, join the fun while hosting a backyard party.

7. Grill
An outdoor party is never complete without barbeque, so including a grill is highly recommended. Either a built-in or a portable grill would make a great choice. If you want it to add to the impact of your backyard’s overall aesthetic or look, then you should opt for a built-in grill. If you it to be more accessible and can be taken everywhere, then a portable grill is a better choice.

8. Built-in Seating
If you want long-lasting seats, it is advisable to add built-in chairs and tables. You can either go with ceramics or cement so that it can withstand any weather. Wood is a nice idea too, but it would be better if it has a roof above it to protect it from the rain. Another advantage of built-in chairs and table is you have the freedom to choose whatever design you want.

What do you think of these ideas? Do you see any of these as a great addition to your backyard too? Would love to know!

  • Cash

    Now, I want to really ask this question. Those sofas when you leave them outdoors. What happens if it rains regularly at my place?

  • Joanna

    I have a beautiful outdoor terrace and I thought how cool it would be to have a tv out there, but because it’s not covered, I never imagines that it would be possible because of the rain. It’s so amazing that this tv is not damaged by bad weather.

  • Nelly

    This is a great post to look back on when I want to update my Instagram. Some tips I have never heard of. Very interesting

    Gotta say I already have quite a few of these in my backyard (and screened in porch). Guess I’m doing well!

    The best part about the weather warming up, is being able to decorate your outdoor space. I’ve never thought about investing in an outdoor tv. I totally understand about having your own pool. I have a community pool in my neighborhood, but a lot of my neighbors are getting pools put in. There’s something so nice about going into your own backyard and enjoying your own private pool.
