As we transition into summer amidst a pandemic, spending time outdoors becomes more important. Although stay at home orders have been lifted in many states, there are still restrictions in some locations. Plenty of people remain cautious and are still practicing social distancing to various degrees.

After a grueling winter and spring, people are looking forward to being outside this summer. So there’s more pressure than ever to create a resort-like space in our own backyards. Whether you have several acres and a pool, or just a city balcony, here are the most popular outdoor design trends for 2020.

Glass Pool Fencing 

Pool fencing and aesthetically pleasing rarely belong in the same sentence, but Aquaview pool fences are different. Founded by friends and entrepreneurs Jordan Goodman and Kelly Maynard, the brand was even featured on TLC’s Make This Place Your Home.

Aquaview fences are made from stainless steel and half-inch thick tempered safety glass. This has many advantages over traditional pool fencing. Unlike other materials, glass provides an unobstructed view and won’t detract from landscaping or other architectural features. This can even increase property value, making it a smart investment.

Glass is also a better choice for safety than standard pool fencing. It’s far easier for homeowners to keep an eye on children and pets through glass. It also discourages intruders and animals from getting into the pool area because glass cannot be climbed.

Outdoor Bars

At the end of April, Wayfair Professional released a report sharing data and search trends which revealed what their customers were looking to buy for the upcoming season. One of the most notable findings was that searches for outdoor bars increased by 155 percent. It’s easy to understand why. Much like a fun pool float, just the sight of an outdoor bar can put someone in a more festive mood.

The report also stated that searches for outdoor kitchens and dining areas increased by 130 percent. Building an outdoor kitchen is a major undertaking that’s simply not an option for everyone. So, an outdoor bar, such as the Greyleigh Hallsville 3 Piece Bar Set  provides an easier and far less expensive alternative.

Rope Furniture

One of the biggest trends in outdoor furnishings for 2020 year is rope. “It originally started as more of a coastal decor look but it’s now used in so many different ways that it can fit in almost style,” says Chelsea Marks, co-founder of Paynes Gray.

One example of this is Loom Outdoor Dining Chair Set of 2 from Paynes Gray. With solid teak legs, an aluminum frame, and olefin upholstery in a Smoke Gray color, these chic chairs complement many styles of larger outdoor dining tables or can be used with a bistro set on a smaller patio.
