If a staycation is on your mind, turn your backyard into the perfect getaway. It not only saves you the hassle of traveling but also gives immense pleasure to stay at home and relax. However, you needn’t spend a fortune for a wonderful backyard staycation. With a few simple upgrades and additions, you can transform this space into a tropical retreat.

Here’s how:

Comfortable Seating Spaces

The backyard is an extension of your home. You can merge it by bringing some part of your indoors into this space. Create comfortable seating areas complete with end tables, pillows, or some poufs. Additionally, you can also add some dramatic lighting effects to illuminate the backyard and make space for reading or lounging in the evenings.

Add Some FireFire Features

Imagine a staycation in front of a fireplace or beside copper fire bowls adding warmth to space. To spruce it up, you can add colorful lighting and relaxing music that sets the right tone. A night-time fire feature is not only warm but also ambient to let you enjoy the serenity of your backyard.

Fun Pool Features

If you have a swimming pool in your backyard, why not convert it into a fun space? There are many ways to make your backyard staycation more enjoyable in the pool. Waterfalls, scuppers, and slides are some ways to add exciting activities to your pool. While waterfalls create a calming effect, bubblers or slides are perfect to keep the kids busy and entertained.

Add Wonderful Amenities

Whatever is your choice of vacations, amenities are always on top of your mind. So, when you plan a backyard staycation, you need to focus on installing some amenities to your outdoor space as well. For example, make a shady pool house or privacy corner to unwind and take a shower. Also, you can create a fire pit and an open grill to sit around with your guests.

Outdoor Kitchen for Open Dining

A backyard isn’t really ready for a staycation unless it is decked with a fully-stocked outdoor kitchen. You need this space to cook up memorable meals and brew your favorite drinks. Instead of rushing into the home to grab the grub, use your outdoor space for a kitchen where you can prep, cook, and serve. It must have proper counter space, cooking surface, and refrigerator to serve up any type of meal. Keep this kitchen ready in advance before you begin your staycation.

Build a Cozy In-Pool Spa

A vacation needs to be calming and relaxing. That’s why you need your own private spa in your backyard. Turn every evening into a relaxation time by creating an in-pool spa. You can either build a hot tub near your pool or transform your pool with the perimeter overflow effect to enjoy this feature. In your concrete pool, you can create a spa at any designated space while a spillover spa is perfect for fiberglass or vinyl-lined pool.
