When it comes to outdoor furniture and home decor accessories for spring and summer, there are more than a few must-haves to make your patio and outdoor space both comfortable and stylish. Outdoor accessories can help provide a comfortable and relaxing space to enjoy your backyard or patio as the temperatures start to heat up. The design pros at Ashley Homestore are here to walk you through every aspect of updating your outdoor decor. 


Patio umbrellas can be a helpful addition to any sunny outdoor space, but especially in Tucson. A patio umbrella can provide the shade you need for a break from the direct sunlight and high temperatures while you’re enjoying a swim, entertaining guests in the backyard, or digging into that summer book by the pool.  First, consider the overall size of the umbrella that you need. For some larger backyards, you might need more than one to adequately cover  all of your seating or outdoor dining areas.  Many modern outdoor tables will have a built-in option to add an umbrella of your choice. If you’re looking for something more standalone, a classic straight-pole look is popular and can be moved around the backyard to fit your needs. For a larger, more stationary area that needs to be shaded, like a large outdoor dining table, consider a cantilever hanging design. 


Great for relaxation and stress relief, hammocks can help you unwind after a long day or slip into an afternoon nap. They’re also great at taking stress off of your back and hips, as opposed to more traditional outdoor seating like a chaise or adirondack chair. There’s a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from, so it won’t be hard to find something that fits with your existing decor theme. If you have the trees to do so, a classic white double-rope hammock is a great choice and won’t require a base. Just attach it to your trees and enjoy! If a stand is necessary, there’s a few popular styles to choose from. Weather-resistant metal is the most common, but if you’re looking for more of a statement piece you’re in luck. Consider a wooden arc-shaped base made of either eucalyptus or juniper wood, and match that with a linen hammock to complete the look.


If you plan to spend a lot of time outside and have a covered seating area, a rug is a great addition to your outdoor relaxation space. Outdoor rugs will use materials that are resistant to the elements and won’t fade or become moldy. Thankfully, you shouldn’t have to do much upkeep! Rugs come in all shapes and sizes, and finding one that fits your style shouldn’t be hard. As always, be sure to factor in the function of the rug into your design decisions. Will it be used as a place for the kids to play? Or will it be used to simply define a seating area? Your family’s needs will help you decide which texture is right for you.
