We hope you have enjoyed our blog series this month regarding all the fantastic attractions around the San Diego area. But at the end of the day, your home is where you will stay. It just makes sense to pay the most attention to the comforts, conveniences and amenities in your own backyard oasis, since you spend the majority of time there. In case you have not been shopping for outdoor furnishings and accessories lately, here are several suggestions to make your time at home even more enjoyable.
Build a Better California Room
Ah, the California room. It’s the go-between living area that allows you to enjoy your outdoor landscape and ocean views while maintaining a temperate environment. As such, many San Diego homeowners are often unsure how to furnish and accessorize this space. We firmly believe that if it is a living area, it should include all the comforts you would find in any other room of the home.
Of course, comfortable seating is de rigeur. Outdoor furnishings, including a sofa with plump cushions are always welcome. You may want to include a couple of swivel rocker lounge chairs, as well, which are easy to move out of the sun. Then again, you can’t go wrong with a pair or more of classic Adirondack chairs. Add a serving cart to make enjoying a cocktail in this room a bit easier. These handy little pieces are available in a wide variety of styles to suit your current décor.
Because your California room is protected from insects, it’s also the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening meal. Think about including a bar height table and stools, or a full dining set, with ambient lighting. Include a lazy Susan in the middle for ease of serving food and drinks. Set up a wireless audio system so that you can enjoy your favorite tunes with the click of a remote button.
Comfort Through the Seasons
When you have spent a lot of time and effort turning your backyard into a verdant oasis, you should be able to enjoy it year round. That means adding outdoor furnishings and pieces which ensure your comfort, no matter the outdoor temperature.
In the warmer summer months, one or several shade features will keep you protected from the sun’s rays. Add lights wrapped around the top of the pole and misters along the perimeter for even more comfort. There are even Bluetooth speakers that easily attach to the umbrella’s ribs. Then again a cabana, outfitted with a comfy chaise lounge, portable, battery-operated cooler and occasional table, might be the better choice in your backyard oasis.
As fall transitions to winter, San Diego nights offer crisp coolness. This is when you will want an outdoor fireplace, fire pit, fire urn or fire bowl to keep off the chill. Add a remote control, whenever possible, to make it supremely easy to enjoy radiant heat and mesmerizing flames in seconds.
The Best Relaxation Starts at Home
When you call a little slice of paradise home, you will always enjoy coming back to your own backyard oasis at the end of a day or the end of a trip. Set it up for maximum relaxation and comfort with these outdoor furnishings and more, brought to you by Hauser’s Patio.
