In 2014, you can use vibrant shades and playful patterns in your outdoor decorations and furnishings to give your backyard a fun vibe. Just make sure that everything you use is stain and weather resistant to ensure the beauty of your outdoors for a long time.

Invest in Deep Seat Dining

Sunken outdoor seating is growing in popularity these days, so you can expect it to be extremely trendy by the New Year. This is an excellent option if your family shares your love for the outdoors or if you tend to have people over often. However, keep in mind that you will need the help of an interior designer and some laborers to create the area before you can place your outdoor furniture.
