Backyard Renos That Wow

Backyard Renos That Wow

Looking to finally upgrade the backyard this year? It can be difficult to know how or what to do to enhance your outdoor space and add in those elements that will really make it pop. If you’re keen on taking on some backyard renovations that will wow your family and friends, here are some suggestions to help get you inspired.

Infinity Pool or Fountain

There’s nothing quite as elegant and impressive as an infinity pool. It’s one of the top trends in outdoor designs and also one of the most impressive by far. If you’ve been considering installing a pool in your backyard, why not take that idea a bit further with an infinity concept? You can also create a fountain area within your existing pool or as a standalone to capture a similar idea and effect.

Adding in the Element of Fire

If you’re looking to create a focal area of your yard where guests and family can gather and converse, then cozy and impressive fire accents are a must. You can have an outdoor fireplace or pit installed that will allow you to take full advantage of those late-night parties, and even enjoy your outdoor living space when the weather turns cool.  Torches or fire bowls incorporated into your design or along your poolscape are an economical way to achive a similarly dramatic effect.

Modern Outdoor Lighting

Nothing sets the mood and intimate ambiance of a space like lighting. This is one of the easiest ways to create that wow factor with minimal effort. By placing spotlights throughout your garden, you can highlight certain features such as plants and trees or a fountain and pool. Even stringing lanterns around your terrace can improve your outdoor setting dramatically, and with new high efficiency colored LED lights it’s easy to get a professional look with limitred expense.

Cozy Pergolas

If your backyard is big and spacious and you’re unsure of how to create a more cozy and intimate setting, then consider breaking up the space by adding a pergola into the layout. Adding a simple structure with draped linens is the perfect addition for breaking up a space and creating a cozy, lounging area. These are elegant and can add so much character to your backyard.

Create an Outdoor Bar

Who doesn’t dream of having an outdoor bar? This is one of the ways to truly impress your guests. You can create a patio area with a mixture of stone and wood accents for the bar and stools alongside so you can serve up some of your favourite cocktails. There’s no better way to get the party started than at your own bar!

 Dream Pool

Having a home pool is the dream – but upgrading to a fully decked out poolscape is legendary. Fountains, jets, lighting, waterslide, swim out niches, diving board – you name it, the pool renovations pros at Purewater can bring it to life.

From big renos to subtle additions, there are countless ways to bump up the wow factor throughout your backyard. Whether you’re considering taking on a big backyard reno, or a simple retouch, consider some of these ideas to give you inspiration.
