While Florida is known as a beach destination all year long, the Florida weather does start to cool and the ocean gets a little chillier when autumn rolls around. Florida’s fall season is never short on outdoor activities, however. In fact, with lower humidity (and even a need for a light jacket at night!) fall is ideal for spending time outside. There are paddleboarding, kayaking, team sports, and the list goes on. But perhaps the most fun (and affordable) activities this fall are right in your backyard. Although Florida is slow to cool off, it’s a sweet relief after a grueling summer. Time to invite over some friends and family and put that backyard to use! Whether you are working strictly on a lanai or encompassing the entire backyard, lighting, seating/dining areas, fire pits/fireplaces, and grills are given top priority when it comes to outdoor décor.
There are 7 key elements to crafting an outdoor living area.
The lanai (or covered porch/patio) is a versatile area of your Florida home. Decorating it—and your entire backyard—will bring personality and character to your backyard.
Under the lanai, enjoy alfresco meals rain or shine, a perfect choice for those who love sipping on afternoon tea in the shade!
Take your barbecue pit to the next level. With an outdoor kitchen, the days of carting dishes across the house are long gone. Cook, eat and clean all on one terrace. Outdoor kitchens always draw crowds—where there’s a kitchen, there’s a party bound to take place.
If you’re the life of the party, an outdoor bar is just the thing for you. Flex your mixology skills in front of friends, family, and guests.
Smart Features & Entertainment
With football season in full swing, a TV is one of the better choices for the perfect outdoor living atmosphere. Grab some chips and salsa, hit the patio, and watch your team compete every weekend.
Not only is a pool a beautiful centerpiece for your outdoor living experience, but it’s great for exercise, perfect for cooling off, and it gives your home a true luxury feel.
Pour your go-to drink, gather with your favorite people, and sit around an outdoor fireplace chatting for hours under the beautiful Florida night sky.
If you and your family spend a lot of time outside, consider purchasing an oversized lot. If kids need more space to run around or you’re looking to make additions to your outdoor living experience, this is the perfect way to do it.
