Summer Staycation- Enjoying your outdoor space

Published Date: Jul 29, 2013

Ever noticed all those beautiful resort pools, exotic outdoor sitting areas, dining areas by romantic fountains, chaises under beautiful canopies, and such look a bit different on the hotel websites than they do in person? That’s because photos usually leave out the crowds, the noise, the waiting line for dinner on the terrace, and the people watchers invading your privacy at every turn. It goes without saying that there is nothing more blessed on vacation than spending time with your family, in a quiet, relaxing setting. If you're lucky, all you have to do to experience that is step outside your own back door. With a few touches, you can have the 5-star resort feel right at home, and create a memorable staycation right at home. Here’s some ideas:

  • Start from the ground up. Create a sophisticated look with rich warm colored paving stones on your outdoor surfaces. You will be amazed at how quickly a natural colored patio deck and corresponding walkways add class and make your outdoor living areas more inviting than ever, giving you that resort feeling just steps away from the convenience of your home.

  • Create your own unique spaces among flower gardens and water features with paving stone seating areas, fire pits, garden walls, and more. Not only do you not have to pack your bags to sit under the stars by a warm fire, or listen to a tranquil water fountain while you read during the day; you don’t have to share your relaxing setting with noisy crowds and others waiting their turn for your perfect spot.

  • Need some privacy from your own family once in a while? Set up some canopies or pergolas, to create separate sitting rooms throughout your yard. No matter the size of your yard, you will be surprised how easily they create individual spaces for reading, sleeping in a hammock, or just sitting and doing nothing.

By investing in creating a resort like setting at home, you can enjoy these elements year round, and they don’t come with a high price per night ticket either.
