Do you dream of having a luxurious backyard, but your bank account has other ideas? Here are some easy ways to make your patio look super expensive without breaking the bank.
Mow Your Lawn
You may find this one to be a little weird, but mowing your lawn can actually give your home that luxury appearance. It’s all about how you mow it, though. If you mow in perfectly straight lines or squiggles, people who pass by are going to know that a lot of time was put into making the law look nice. A well-kept, green lawn is usually a sign of money, so fool all of your neighbors by using a little elbow grease.
Have Matching Furniture
Picking out matching, inexpensive furniture will give your space a uniform look. You can pick an Amish shed, an Amish outdoor dining table, an Amish swing, and even an Amish dog house for your little pup to relax in. If you order all of these pieces from the same builder, they’ll look pretty similar. While you may be a fan of mixing patterns, too much going on may give off the vibe that you’re using hand-me-downs or garage sale pieces. Your Amish shed and Amish Adirondack chairs will mesh perfectly together. Plus, a wooden shed should last at least 15 to 20 years. That means won’t have to spend money on another Amish shed for many, many years.
Create Specific Areas of Your Backyard
Luxury backyards tend to have specific places for each activity. For example, there would be an area dedicated to cooking, an area specifically for eating, and an area meant for lounging. Place cheap stones and flowers along each specific space to make it look closed-off from another one of your outdoor living spaces. If you don’t have enough space in your yard for separate “rooms”, focus on one single area and keep it cohesive. Keep all of the furniture facing each other and arrange it as if you were redoing your indoor living room.
If you don’t have a ton of money, you can still make your backyard look like it popped out of a luxury home magazine. Simply mow your lawn, keep your furniture cohesive, and create fake “rooms” to give your backyard the expensive vibe.
