2024 Outdoor Living Trends

As the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter, we are all preparing to enhance our outdoor spaces and get them ready for the summer. Here, we look at a few of the big trends that we expect to see in 2024. Which ones will you be embracing?

Indoor-Outdoor Living Spaces

One trend that has gained significant momentum in recent years and continues to thrive is the integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Extending your home’s interior aesthetic to the outdoors has become increasingly popular. Picture this: plush sofas, luxurious cushions, and soft throws arranged tastefully on an outdoor rug, surrounded by vibrant potted plants and elegant tables. This setup creates an inviting oasis where you can unwind, soaking in the beauty of nature. To top it off, a retractable awning is the ultimate addition, offering shade during the day and privacy in the evening.

Smart Home Features for Outdoor Spaces

If you haven’t done so already, this year is the time to consider merging your smart home technology with your outdoor areas. Lighting is crucial to creating a warm ambience outside, and leveraging smart lights enables you to establish automated scenes for unparalleled convenience. Moreover, outdoor entertainment setups featuring TVs or projectors are gaining traction alongside security features like outdoor cameras, motion sensors, and smart locks.

Splashes of Colour

2024 is the year we’re giving our gardens a bit of a boost with inviting and warm colour palettes. With Pantone’s Colour of the Year being ‘Peach Fuzz’we expect to see this soft pinky-orange shade appear in our clients’ outdoor spaces as we approach summer. From coral-coloured tulips and verbena to terracotta pots and soft timber steps, this beautiful hue will add a hint of Mediterranean charm to any garden.

Multifunctional Outdoor Spaces

This year, our gardens and outdoor areas aren’t just places for relaxation; they’re hubs for various activities. From outdoor kitchens and dining spots to garden gyms and play areas for children, we’re finding multiple ways to maximize our outdoor spaces. Many of our clients are utilising retractable awnings to elevate these multifunctional outdoor areas. With just the push of a button, you can create shade for your children to play safely away from the sun or set the mood for a tranquil yoga session.
