Even though 2018 is only a few days old, we are going to look forward to some of the hottest outdoor living trends. We have seen the concept of ‘outdoor living’ change. People have started to embrace the concept of having a ‘room of your home that is outdoors’. People no longer just want to have a place to sit outside, they want the same level of convenience and comfort for their outdoor living are. These are a few hot trends that we see happening in 2018.
Trend #1 – Fire features
Having an outdoor fireplace is something of a dream for most homeowners. It does not matter if you have your fire feature on the patio or your porch, this is a great way to spruce up your outdoor living area. They are going to extend the amount of time that you can be outside and a logical gathering spot for people to come together. If you believe that you are not going to get enough use out of a fireplace (or are afraid it is too permanent) you can get some amazing fire pits that serve the same purpose.
Trend #2 – Fashionable flooring
You do not want to have to wear shoes in your outdoor space. We believe that people are going to treat floors as another design feature in 2018. This means that you are going to want a nice pattern for your flooring (classic checkerboard or stripes are patterns that never go out of style) and you can easily repaint dirty floors again. If you want to really bring your outdoor space together, an outdoor floor rug is going to make your flooring appear even more elegant.
Trend #3 –Colorful fabrics
As you can see from our website and earlier posts, more and more people are focusing on high quality outdoor furniture. This means that there are more outdoor fabrics available, offering more selections and combinations than ever before. If you believe that yellow and purple are too bold to use, remember that you can opt for something a bit more neutral. Using contrasting, patterned pillows is also another way to really spruce up your outdoor living area. There are several different options available that are going to make your outdoor area really stand up.
We believe that these trends are going to take center stage at the start of 2018. Because we want to make sure that we offer a wide selection, we have amassed a few of the highest quality brands available.
