Modern Backyard Decor
You may already know that your backyard is more than just an extension of your home. For many, it is a sanctuary, a retreat, a private hideaway – it’s a place for you to get away, to enjoy barbecues with the family or quiet time with a book. Decorating this space to meet your needs and style makes it all the more enjoyable when you spend time here. But if the ordinary backyard decorations aren’t doing it for you, what are some other ideas?
You can be creative in your backyard decorative ideas. Birdhouses are beautiful, and so are garden gnomes, flower gardens, and backyard swings. But if you want to mix it up a bit, here are some ideas you may enjoy:
While they’ve been around for a long time, many people have forgotten the beauty and creativity of having one at their home. They will create a beautiful and interesting look in your backyard and also make a great conversation starter. There are many different styles to choose from, including handmade sundials.
Here’s another unique idea that’s been around a while but is making a comeback since the Victorian period when they were so popular. There are many different colors and sizes of gazing globes. Some come with their different stands to hold them. Most modern versions are around 10 to 12 inches in diameter, but there are globes as large as 20 inches or those that are smaller than 10. The color and size depend on the unique look you are going for.
Tiki torches and other types of backyard candles or lighting are also increasingly popular yet more unique when it comes to backyard decor. You can use them to surround a patio or decorate around the edging of a pool, a barbecue pit and more.
Fountains and Waterfalls
Fountains and waterfalls are another way to add a creative touch to your backyard. There are many which can be purchased and set up quickly without requiring any holes in your lawn. There are even small versions that can be placed on tops of tables or stands in the backyard and those designed to work in flower beds.
With so many great unique backyard decorative ideas, you are ready to start having some fun in the sun this summer with a modern backyard that makes you feel good to be in it. Can you think of other great ideas for your backyard paradise?
