Hybrid furniture ideas in outdoor dining

1. Make the most of small patios with hybrid furniture.

When it comes to small patios, furniture that can play double duty will extend the life of your outdoor space, no matter how snug it might be. Look for sectionals with matching elevated coffee tables that easily go from lemonade in the sun to evening fun!

Hybrid furniture is also a great way to avoid overspending, while still ensuring you can use your outdoor space in all ways.

2. Invest in comfortable classics.

When looking for larger items for your patio, like patio seating and dining, keep comfort top of mind. Outdoor sectionals create an outdoor living room, and encourage guests to relax and kick their feet up. An umbrella is also an essential piece to maximize comfort, providing shade from the midday sun (not to mention privacy from peering neighbours checking out your grill menu!).

3. Lounge out with bohemian accents.

Thanks to its long-standing ties to health and wellness, bohemian décor has quite naturally made its way to fresh, open spaces like our backyards. This trend is all about earth elements, natural textures and whimsical touches, like macramé and wind chimes. Instantly beautify your boho-style patio with an outdoor jute rug, textured pillows, wicker lanterns and Acapulco chairs.

4. Create a tropical oasis in your own backyard.

If dreams of a tropical getaway are a far-off reality, tropical décor can be a click away (and for much less than a plane ticket!). One of the trending backyard furniture ideas for 2022 is a hanging pod chair or hammock for its unique ability to instantly evoke R&R time.  Grab a freshly mixed piña colada, close your eyes amid  soft, swaying leaves, and you’re halfway there!

5. Simplify for sensational al fresco dining.

Outdoor dining is easy breezy when you have everything you need at your fingertips. Enhance your al fresco dining experience by making it as carefree as ever with all of the essentials on hand, like shatterproof dishware, sunset-ready outdoor lighting, and a handy bar cart, fully stocked with an ice bucket and all the fix ‘ems. Tap into your inner Martha and entertain like a pro (even if you’ve ordered in!).

6. Extend enjoyment with evening lighting and heating.

There’s nothing quite like the warmth and glow of a roaring outdoor fire. Enjoy your backyard late into the night, from early spring through fall by adding sensory elements like heat lamps and soft patio lighting. Or create an intimate space cast aglow by a fire pit for even cozier evenings enjoyed outdoors.

For busy patios with little children, opt for tall heaters over fire pits. Don’t ever leave your fire pits and heaters unattended, and always ensure they’re turned off and extinguished before heading in for the night.

Vibrant colours in outdoor dining

7. Introduce a vibrant mix of colours.

Let’s face it: With a family to tend to, weekends spent gardening aren’t always in the cards. So here’s a workaround: Amplify your flower power by incorporating more colour into your patio décor. An affordable and easy way to apply this trend is with textiles featuring lush, blooming flowers and colours. Best of all, it’s easy to swap, update and refresh them as your taste, season or entertaining themes change.

8. Make a chic statement with bold neutrals.

A simple colour pairing of white and black adds instant “chic” to your patio style and is ultra-easy to achieve. Don’t overthink it: Just focus on minimalist furniture with sleek lines, and pepper in a couple unique décor pieces like a swinging egg chair for a marvellously modern patio look all season long.

9. Add sustainable gardening features to your space.

Love a flower-filled backyard, but can’t find the time (or energy) for its upkeep?  Extend the sustainability trend to your garden with bloom-filled containers displayed throughout—a particularly great solution if you have a smaller yard, or just a balcony. Container gardens rely on less soil and water, and are less temperamental than regular gardens (making them ideal for your budding green thumb).

10. Make recreational games part of your backyard décor.

While we wish summer would last forever, lawn games like bocce ball  and giant jenga  can help create fun summer memories that do. While most games can be packed up and brought out for gatherings, consider leaving them set up for the summer for outdoor décor that’s both fun and functional.  Just the sight of them instantly inspires an afternoon of quality family time!
