Upgrades can make your time at home feel a little more rewarding. Even if you’re venturing out more these days, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to your property.

You probably have your home office set up just how you like. With warmer weather ahead, your eye for upgrades can shift outside.

Ready to find your inspiration for outdoor living? Here are six of this year’s biggest trends.

  •  Lighting: Sunset doesn’t mean you have to go inside. Use accent lighting to warm and brighten your outdoor space under the night sky.
  • Pergolas: Want to add something functional and elegant to your home? A pergola creates a defined space ideal for al fresco dining. You can lounge outside for hours under the shade of this structure.
  • Relaxation Areas: Does your porch or patio need a refresh? Swings, outdoor couches and potted plants can create inviting outdoor areas for relaxation.
  • Outdoor Entertaining: A movie projector and weather-resistant speakers can be the perfect way to enjoy warm summer nights.
  • Gardening: While flowers bring a splash of color to your yard, you may want to consider more functional projects. Growing herbs and vegetables can be a satisfying hobby, particularly if you like to cook at home.
  • Year-Round Enjoyment: With all the hard work of getting an outdoor space ready for spring and summer, you may be wondering how you can enjoy the area for longer. Additions like fire pits and outdoor heaters can come in handy when the weather becomes chillier once again.
