Focus on Creating a Relaxing Outdoor Space

Today's patios are much more than just a place to keep the barbeque. They're an extension of our home and a vital part of the flow of our daily lives. There's nothing like relaxing on the patio with a glass of rose at the end of the day with family and friends. Since the patio has become such an important part of the home, the outdoor furniture and accessories should be carefully considered.

This is important because people’s increasingly busy lives are making them more stressed. They need a space to unwind at the end of the day, which is why they are investing more and more in outdoor spaces that they can relax in.

Experts show that Americans are now spending more time in their backyards than they were prior to the pandemic. We spend an average of 14 hours each week outside, up three hours from the prior statistics.

Essentials For Living produces a mix of fashion-forward designs that will fit in effortlessly with other items and styles in your outdoor space to create a stunning area that you look forward to relax and entertain in.

There's nothing like a deep seated outdoor sofa like the Essentials For Living Tropez Outdoor Sofa. It's the perfect spot to unwind and is made for the outdoors. A comfy outdoor lounge chair, lounger, or chaise lounge also helps create a relaxing outdoor space. Whether you're beneath an umbrella, by a pool, on a deck, or even on a high-rise apartment building's balcony, the perfect outdoor seating is the perfect place to stretch out and rest.

You're more inclined to relax and spend time outside in a cushy sofa than sitting at a patio dining table. So, if you're goal is to create a relaxing outdoor space, it's important to find the right outdoor seating to relax in.


With the Essentials For Living Loom Outdoor Chaise Lounge you can spend some time relaxing in the sun and getting that all important Vitamin D.

The one-of-a-kind design is created by weaving a rich platinum colored rope between an aluminum frame in a vertical and crossing pattern, giving it a coastal vibe.

Furthermore, the adjustable backrest lets you relax in the sun in the most comfortable position for you.

Create the perfect outdoor dining experience

An outdoor eating space is perfect for those warm summer days, barbeques and birthday parties. Choosing the right outdoor dining table can make all the difference. The Essentials For Living Boca Outdoor Dining Table is a stylish and well made table perfect for any outdoor use.

Crisp table linens will make your table look inviting. Crisp and fresh table linen is also one of the delights of indoor eating; why not have the same degree of attention outdoors?

For a little rustic, homey appearance and feel, use natural, luxury textiles such as cotton and linen, but choose natural finishes and colors, since they won't fade in the sun as quickly as bright colors.

Build your own patio bar (and don’t forget the bar stools)

Do you enjoy drinking and hosting parties? Do you like to entertain and become the life of the party? If so, your home might be in need of a patio bar. 

Outdoor patio bars are becoming more and more popular in recent years because they can provide an extra living space for entertaining purposes.

Picture the scene: it’s a nice summer’s evening, it’s Friday and your friends are calling over for some beers and chats outside on your patio. Having your own outdoor bar or even a patio bar area is the perfect setting for post barbecue drinks.

Don’t forget to add an Essentials For Living Tapestry Outdoor Barstool to complete your patio bar look.

This braided outdoor barstool will give your garden or patio a breezy, seaside feel. This stool is not only strong, but also durable for outdoor usage, thanks to its stainless steel frame and solid gray teak legs.

The stool blends comfort with style and will be the perfect complement to any outdoor location when paired with a replaceable all-weather seat cushion.

Building your own patio bar means:

Money saved

Drinks purchased from a supermarket or wholesaler are significantly less expensive than those purchased from pubs and clubs. This means you'll get a lot more bang for your buck, and a night out won't cost you a week's salary.

Organize your own parties

There are numerous opportunities to celebrate throughout the year, including birthdays, Christmas parties, Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, and many more holidays. Hosting gatherings in your own outdoor bar might provide a distinctive touch.

You can customize it with themed parties, serve the food your guests love and create Spotify music playlists for the occasion based on the choices of your friends.

Get your landscaping right

Plants that have been carefully designed and picked to seem natural in their surroundings can help to create a theme or atmosphere, and perhaps transport you to a favorite holiday place.

Who wouldn't want to come home to a yard that reminded them of their trip to Cancun or the Maldives every day?

The idea is to select plants that respond well to your local environment. Mix native species native to your region with climate-adapted trees, shrubs, vines, and perennials—usually anything from your local botanical garden shop will suffice.

If you can afford it, seek expert assistance from a landscape designer to take your patio to the next level.

Create a great atmosphere with an outdoor speaker

An outdoor speaker is a must-have for any patio area. Outdoor speakers provide that additional element of atmosphere and mood to the outdoor space.

When you are ready to buy an outdoor speaker, it is important to consider all your options. You need to think about what size you want, how much power the speaker will need, and if you will be placing it on a flat surface or in a pool area.

The Pablo Uma Sound Lantern is a great choice as it not only has great sound, but a beautiful modern outdoor lantern as well.

No matter what kind of speaker you choose, it's imperative that you understand that sound's directionality is the most important aspect when it comes to outdoor sound.

Placing Your Furniture for Optimum Relaxation in your patio area

It can be difficult to achieve the perfect balance between style and function when decorating your outdoor space. The first thing you have to do is decide on the purpose of the space. If you are looking for a place to hang out with friends, then furnish it with comfortable furniture that will allow for enough space.

If you want a peaceful area to relax in, then try arranging your furniture so it all faces out towards the water or pool, which will give it an open feel.

Essentials For Living Outdoor Chairs are excellent pieces of patio furniture because they offer many benefits, but one of the best is that they are versatile enough to be used as extra seating when needed. 

Outdoor Lounge chairs are another great option because they offer comfort and relaxation while at the same time allowing you to appreciate their aesthetic qualities.

Wrapping up

Patios are an extension of your home that is an enjoyable spot to relax and get away from the noise and chores inside. Patios can be any size or shape and can be made of a variety of materials, but they all have one thing in common: they're a place to enjoy nature and spend time with family and friends.

A relaxing patio is important because it provides a space for you to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's also great for entertaining guests who come over to visit your house.
