12 Simple & Stylish Outdoor Room Updates

Relaxing Porch Swing

There’s nothing quite like sitting — or sleeping — on a porch swing during the warm summer months. This relaxing porch addition is quick and easy to hang. When installing the porch swing, attach it to something structural, especially when dealing with older homes. If you prefer a rustic rope look as opposed to chain links, be sure to use marine-grade nylon or polyester for a longer-lasting effect. Don’t forget cozy cushions and pillows to add a stylish finish and a comfortable spot to relax. Design by John Gidding.

Modern Stepping Stones

Set a clear path for guests with simple stepping stones. The curvature of these concrete stones presents a modern twist to typical garden stepping stones and adds a unique touch to any pathway, particularly pea gravel. Design by John Gidding.

Covered Patio

Ideal for Entertaining

Take advantage of warm seasons by creating an outdoor space that doubles as a spot for summertime parties or afternoon naps. The linen draperies and overhead sails add elegant appeal and help bring in the cool shade. Ample seating, open floor space and lantern lights provide an ideal atmosphere for entertaining.

Soothing Garden Pond

Add a natural and serene touch to your backyard by incorporating a garden pond into your landscape design plan. To create this outdoor oasis, RMS user LuvTennis added a koi pond amid various hibiscuses and Asian-inspired decor. At the end of the pond, a small waterfall emits soothing sounds for added ambiance.

Stone Accented Outdoor Kitchen and Bar

Designer Cindy Aplanalp wanted to create an outdoor space that matches the home’s existing structure and accentuates its warm Mediterranean feel. Adjacent to the dining area, the outdoor kitchen is complete with a gas rotisserie grill, smoker, secondary gas burner and refrigerator — ideal for preparing family meals or hosting parties, Cindy says.
