Summer has just begun, and that means that your backyard is about to be your number one getaway destination every day! Kick off your shoes and get some inspo from our sparkling tips below! 

 

 

 

 

Illuminate Your Space

Your backyard is a great place to spend not only your summer days, but also your summer nights! Add warmth to your backyard by adding fun, decorative lights. Choose between overhead lights such as string lights, lanterns, or ground lighting depending on your personal preference.

Add Furniture for Al Fresco Dining

We’re not sure why, but food always tastes better with family in the fresh summer air! Enjoy your brunches and dinners outside by adding an outdoor dining set to your space. If you have kids, try to find furniture that’s both water resistant and easy to clean in case of spills. Check out this list of adorable patio sets from Target. If you want something that can be folded and stored when not in use, this set from Ikea is a great option.

Make Space to Lounge with DIY Lounge Chairs

Is there anything better than reclining and enjoying the summer breeze while working on your tan? Add some flair to your space with fun, funky chairs that are both space enhancers AND perfect for spending your summer afternoon. Want to make them more unique? Grab some affordable sling chairs, waterproof paint, and design your own!

Take the Beach Home with a Homemade Sandbox

Your kids will have fun every day creating crazy sandcastles in a homemade sandbox! Need assistance on how to make one? Check out this easy how-to guide from Lowe’s. 

Stay Cool and Eco-Friendly with DIY Water Bombs

Fun AND reusable, these sponge water bombs will take your classic water balloon fight to the next level. The best part? There’s no mess that you have to clean up like you would with normal water balloons!

 

Long days are ahead for us, so why not make the most of them in your backyard? Traveling to new places may be out of the picture this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create new memories at home!
