2021 outdoor trends for you to consider with your next patio renovation

When sprucing up your Sunshine Coast patio and styling it to suit your home, there is a million and one things you could possibly do!

We have been watching recent fashions and have compiled a list of current outdoor trends for you to consider with your next patio renovation.

White gardens and monochromatic ideas

Social media might have a part to play in the rise of these gorgeously photogenic white gardens are it might be that they are the essence of style and create a peaceful oasis. Gardens with a heavy focus on white décor, furniture and flowers are a popular trend this year.

Raised garden beds

This year we have seen lots of people try growing their own herbs and veggies. It’s no surprise searches for ‘raised garden beds’ have increased. You can get a raised garden bed growing almost anywhere as long as it’s in a place that gets plenty of sunlight.  If you’re building your own raised vegetable garden bed from timber, just make sure the type of wood you choose hasn’t been treated with toxic chemicals.

Outdoors as an extension of the indoors

We’ve always been a nation that embraces indoor-outdoor living and it’s something that is set to continue. 2021 has seen a rise in flexible furniture that’s suited to both indoors and outdoors.

Tiny gardens

Tiny gardens are having their time in the sun in 2021. It’s all about making your space seem bigger. So, embrace vertical gardens and create zones with clear pathways to get the most from your space.

Edible gardens

As a result of the pandemic, millions of people began gardening. From wanting to be outdoors, to searching for a new hobby, there were countless reasons for this trend. However, one of the biggest reasons for the rise in edible gardening was to supplement pantries with homegrown fruits, herbs and vegetables.

Multipurpose furniture

This year, outdoor furniture developed to accommodate everyday living as well as social gatherings as entertaining became less of a focus last year. We have seen outdoor furniture items that are convertible and can be pulled apart to help with seating or tables with hidden beverage compartments.
