The weather is always warm in Florida, but there’s still something so special about this time of year. Maybe it’s the fresh breeze blowing in off the bay, or the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor living space.
At Medallion Home, we are known for our gorgeous outdoor lanais with pools, fully-equipped outdoor kitchens, and our overall emphasis on quality outdoor living in every home we build. Let's look at five ways to enjoy your Medallion Home backyard and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.
1) Turn your lanai into an outdoor living room
Turn up the comfort factor and transform your covered lanai into the ultimate outdoor living room! Select a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and a few light blankets to get cozy for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year (and all year, really), we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!
2) Make s'mores with the kids
Your spacious backyard is the perfect spot for an outdoor fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your home’s style, or you can incorporate one into the design of your home. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. What was once only an occasional camping experience can be an everyday treat at home.
3) Take in a movie
Your spacious lanai or yard is the perfect place for family movie night! Purchase a screen and projector (or get creative with a white sheet) and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.
4) Let the light shine
Lighting can make or break interior design, but did you know you can use light to completely transform your outdoor space, too? Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make your lanai cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
Central and Southwest Florida have some of the best weather in the country this time of year. Take advantage of it by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Medallion home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard. For more information, please contact us!
