Style Watch: 2019’s Biggest Outdoor Living Trends


Spring is right around the corner, and with it comes chirping birds, warming sunshine, and blooming flowers. Maximize your time outside by creating the outdoor living space of your dreams. We’ve gathered some of the hottest outdoor living trends of 2019 to help you get some inspiration for your patio design.

Textured Walls

Walls are perfect for reshaping your landscape, creating integrated seating, or directing the flow of traffic. Many homeowners are using freestanding and retaining walls that have natural textures. Textured walls help create a more natural feel throughout the space and add a unique aesthetic. When combined with the right pavers and landscaping elements, they can create an outdoor living space that integrates seamlessly with natural surroundings.

Connectivity

With the power of Bluetooth, you can turn your patio into an interactive, high-tech outdoor room. One of the biggest trends for 2019 is technology integrated into patios. From outdoor speakers, to lighting, pool heaters, and even grill temperature monitors, it’s easy to connect your entire outdoor living space to your mobile device. This winning HARDSCAPE HERO project by Ken Osterhus is the perfect inspiration for a Bluetooth-compatible patio.

Lighting

Integrated lighting features are nothing new to Eagle Bay contractors, but for 2019, more and more patios are sporting functional, integrated lighting systems. From outlining entrance areas and pathways to brightening up entire spaces and extending entertaining seasons, outdoor lighting can make your space cozier and increase usage.

Transitional Spaces

Many outdoor living spaces now blur the lines between indoors and outdoors. Most outdoor spaces now function as outdoor rooms, and many designers are creating transitional spaces between inside and outside. Utilizing decking or pergolas, it’s becoming more and more popular to create a seamless transition between the two spaces.

Work with your contractor and the Eagle Bay Design Studio to create the space that works for you. If you need more help planning your patio, check out our GroundWork video series.
