It’s finally starting to feel like spring in Connecticut, and there’s something so special about this season. Maybe it’s the hint of warmer days ahead, or the longer afternoons that allow you to get so much out of each day. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space.
Let’s look at five ways to enjoy your EG Home backyard and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.
1) Turn your covered patio or deck into an outdoor living room
If you have a deck or screened in porch, like at Chatfield Farms, turn up the comfort factor and select a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and lots of cozy blankets for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year, we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!
2) Make s’mores with the kids
A back patio is the perfect spot for an outdoor fire pit, and spring is the perfect time to enjoy one. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your home’s style. Kids and grandkids will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. What was once only an occasional camping experience can be an everyday treat at home.
3) Take in a movie
If you have a large homesite with a spacious yard, like at Old Mystic Estates or Southbury Hills, it’s the perfect place for family movie night! Purchase a screen and projector, or get creative with a white sheet, and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.
4) Let the light shine
Lighting can make or break interior design, but did you know you can use light to completely transform your outdoor space, too? Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make your patio cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
Take advantage of the warmer temperatures by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new EG home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard. Please contact us for more information.
