Creating an outdoor space with an ambiance in your backyard will give you a fantastic experience for yourself and your friends. 

Just think about it during the warmer months; you can sit outside and go to a favorite restaurant. Enjoying patio dining, great food, and a refreshing drink with friends during the evening when it is almost a purple haze outside can be very special.

Recreating that same outdoor dining experience with friends can be very easy to do in your backyard, even if you have a small space. There are only a few things you need to design an outdoor space that‘s cozy and inviting. 

We are often busy with everyday activities that sometimes we forget just to stop and enjoy creation—what better place to do that than in your backyard. Creating a space where you can come home and relax can not be taken for granted. So let’s discuss three ways to make a wow factor in your backyard.


Creating a Space with an Amazing Atmosphere

1. Outdoor Patio Furniture Sets

Choosing an outdoor patio set can be very easy when you know what outdoor furniture style you like. For example, maybe you would like to create a bistro-themed patio space. 

Decorating with a bistro table and chairs will give your outdoor area a retro, french cafe style. Bistro sets come in various styles and colors to choose from. When it comes to bistro furniture, we are sure you will find a furniture set that you will fall in love with! 

Fermob bistro tables and chairs come in up to 24 different colors. For a more relaxed look, add a Fermob Luxembourg Rocking Chair and pair it with a matching Pedestal table and side chairs. A rocking chair is perfect for a lazy evening or afternoon. 

Staying with the bistro them you could go a different route and create ambiance with rattan bistro chairs. A favorite style of ours is the St. Germain Counter Height Bar Stools.  These stools will surely upgrade your outdoor space. Adding an outdoor bar set to your backyard will make it so much fun to entertain your guests all summer long. So heat up the grill, and don’t forget to add a matching dinning-table to go with your fun bistro chairs. 

All-weather wicker furniture can give your outdoor space that nostalgic feeling that will take you back to your childhood. Tailor your wicker patio furniture to your taste by selecting a coordinating Sunbrella fabric for your cushions. 

TIP: To compliment your outdoor dining chairs, don’t forget to add a coordinating outdoor rug and throw pillows to bring your backyard porch together.


2. Lighting for an Outdoor Space

There are so many ways to add lighting to an outdoor yard. Lighting is an essential factor when creating ambiance in any space. Here are a few ways to add light to your outdoor patio or backyard.

  • Tiki Torches

Tiki torches will not only add warm lighting, but they will also help to keep the bugs away. For a tropical-themed backyard, pair your tiki torches with a fantastic Palapa Tiki Umbrella, fruity drinks, and lots of laughter.  

Use different size lanterns to add additional layers to your backyard. Large lanterns can get pretty pricey, so if you’re on a budget, place more miniature lanterns on plant stands to give your space different heights. 

You can always rely on candles to bring in lighting that makes you want to relax. Use tea lights or battery-operated candles to make your outdoor area feel special. 


FYI: Solar outdoor lights are also a great option to bring in different lighting for your backyard. 


3. Patio Accessories For Your Outdoor Space

After selecting your furniture pieces, adding some accessories will help you create your outdoor oasis. When thinking about outdoor accessories, you would like to think about what will make you and your guests comfortable. 

For shade patio umbrellas will help keep the sun out of your guest’s eyes. A fire pit or patio heater with comfortable chairs for lounging can allow you to enjoy your space during multiple seasons. Planters with your favorite flowers or herbs will add color and beauty to your patio deck.

Entertaining outside can be so much fun. Add to the fun with your favorite summer adult beverages. Serve them on a bar cart with delicious appetizers or, even better, barbecue. 

When you finish decorating your outdoor space, don’t forget to take as much time as you can to enjoy it!
