Year-round sunshine and a tropical climate are part of what make the Ormond Beach lifestyle so enviable and there’s no better time to get outside and enjoy that Florida weather than now. No matter the size of your yard, there are plenty of ways to pull inspiration from our coastal community to transform it into something functional and charming. This spring and summer, be the host with the most by transforming your outdoor space with these luxurious ideas!
Invite guests outside with an outdoor living room
Before entertaining anyone outside, you’ve got to make sure that there is ample seating and storage for your family and friends. A simple outdoor living room can come together with some chairs, sofas, and tables! Envision your ideal Sunday brunch or weekday game night, then pick a location on your patio or in your yard to build your outdoor living room. Be sure to incorporate umbrellas or other methods of shading to stay comfortable under the bright Florida sun!
Turn your pool into your very own oasis
Swimming pools understandably see most of their usage during the hotter months of the year when Floridians are seeking relief from the oppressive heat. That being said, your pool should be the ultimate retreat! Cover your walkways with stylish rugs to keep your feet safe from hot concrete and utilize cantilever umbrellas to shade your favorite poolside furniture – they swivel easily to offer protection at any angle while the sun moves through the sky!
Backyard happy hour
What’s a good get-together without cold drinks, especially on a warm Ormond Beach day? Even if you don’t have a full outdoor kitchen, you can easily implement a bar for everyone to gather at for a round of refreshing drinks! Add a countertop and pull up a few stools, then let the drinks flow for an unforgettable gathering. Be sure to keep non-alcoholic beverages on tap for those bar patrons under the age of 21! Besides, nothing goes down quite as smoothly as fresh-squeezed lemonade on a hot day.
Lay the groundwork for a bonfire
Just because the days are warmer doesn’t mean that a bonfire isn’t still a lovely addition to any backyard! This cozy addition to your outdoor space is an instant injection of ambience for every late-night hangout. Homeowners can either invest in structures like chimineas, fire bowls, or fire pits, or they easily construct their own DIY bonfire with repurposed rocks. No matter what you do, be sure to include ample seating and smooth surfaces for guests to place their drinks as they keep warm around the fire on cool nights.
Brighten up your space with string lights
The party should never stop just because the sun goes down. Hang up string lights to enable all-day entertainment at any hour! Not only do string lights add atmosphere to a gathering, but they also serve to define your outdoor space and illuminate it throughout the evening. String lights can be easily interwoven through the natural foliage over your yard but if you have structures like pergolas, those can also serve as the perfect host for your lighting!
