Cute and cozy: Best Outdoor Design Trends of 2020

Ah, early fall in the Lowcountry. When temps start to cool and daylight still reaches into evening. If you ask us, it’s the perfect time of year for spending time outdoors, especially if you live at Nexton. Here, parks are plentiful – so you can always find a place to stroll, run, or wander that’s green and inviting.

We’re also aficionados of indoor-outdoor living spaces. All porches – front, back, and second-story - are designed to be extra deep to allow for maximum enjoyment. Host a party on your patio, project a movie onto the wall inside your screened-in porch, or branch out into the backyard for some bocce or cornhole. At Nexton, home extends beyond your four walls and roof.

Naturally, we’re always on the lookout for the best-and-latest outdoor design ideas. Below, a few trends we recently spotted that we couldn’t wait to share!

Outdoor bars

Need we say more? Probably not, but allow us to indulge. Whether it’s an elaborate wet bar with built-in grill or a simple-yet-refined bar cart, this year has seen people bringing the bar to them, avoiding the hassle of heading out and about. Ask your Nexton builder about integrating a fabulous entertainment spot in your backyard!

Rope Furniture

Rope can be wrapped, twisted, and configured in just about any way imaginable, making it a creative, durable option for outdoor furniture. It also has a natural coastal feel, which is particularly attractive for Charleston-area homeowners. Pair natural or dyed rope with oiled teak, brightly painted wood, or metallic finishes – the sky’s the limit!

Outdoor rugs with traditional prints

The trend used to be bold, graphic rugs for outdoor spaces. But as fabrics have evolved, making them easier to clean and maintain, people are opting for ornate patterns in softer hues. “So, you don’t have to have a bold trellis pattern or bright blue stripe outdoor rug anymore,” the article explains. More choices are always a win in our book!

Landscape lighting

Let there be light – just about everywhere you can think. You can now illuminate your yard using wired, plug-in, or solar lights, allowing accessibility to even the farthest reaches of the backyard, all times of day. DIY landscaping lighting kits make it easy and flexible and can fit into a range of aesthetics and budgets.
