What’s Trending in Outdoor Living? Summer 2019

May 31, 2019

It’s not human nature to want to spend your entire day indoors. For some, being outdoors is a way of life, but most of us just like a little fresh air, sunshine, and stargazing every now and then. Outdoor Living is becoming the new norm, and with any home living situation there is a sense of personal style that comes with it. According to an Architect Magazine article, in the aftermath of the housing downturn, outdoor living spaces have overtaken home offices as the most popular special function room.

With outdoor living spaces topping the list of most popular special function rooms for six consecutive years, it’s safe to say this is more than just a fad. Outdoor living is the new way to live. If you’re looking to modernize your home and take a step outdoors into your new living area while maintaining the overall style of your home, then here’s a list of some of the top trends in outdoor living for 2019 from Belgard.

Stone Creations Northwest loves the ideas and trends talked about in the Belgard article.

Here’s a little bit more information about our three favorites:

Formal Water Features.

Water features can be extravagant, but they can also add a touch of nature and elegance to any outdoor living area. These smaller water features are more simplistic and easier to maintain than an entire swimming pool.

Natural Textured Walls.

Natural textured walls are an easy way to add simple beauty and seating to your outdoor living area. They have increased in popularity lately and are expected to be a popular look in 2019 and beyond.

Entanglement with Nature.

Some homeowners don’t want their outdoor living area to look too much like the inside of their homes and have begun infusing nature with their hardscapes. This style allows for creativity and vision and has become a popular way to not only add more nature to your comfortable new outdoor living area, but uniqueness too.
