Swimming Pool Design Trends to Watch in 2014

With the new year, it’s a great time to start thinking about how you can update your outdoor living space for when the warmer weather hits.  If you’re hoping to revolutionize your outdoor living space for the spring and summer, here are some trends for 2014 to take into consideration:

Mix And Match Brights With Neutral Tones

Regardless of the furniture and furnishings that you choose to use in your outdoor living space, pairing neutral tones (particular blues and greens) with bright, bold colors is going to be all the rage this year, particularly when it comes to outdoor furniture and fabrics.

Raised Fire Pits And Fire Features

Bringing the indoors out is going to continue to be a hot trend in 2014, which is what is making fire pits all the more popular in 2014.  Expect to see a lot of raised fire pits in the upcoming year, with fire pits and other fire features being raised to “chat height” (i.e. just slightly higher than coffee table height).  Fire pit tables are especially becoming a hot item for most pool and patio owners, with many even doubling up as being a space for guests to cook their own food at.

Large And Accommodating Furniture Pieces

For the most part, when it comes to outdoor furniture, the bigger, the better.  Homeowners are looking for larger pieces to best accommodate their guests, such as longer tables that can seat up to 10 guests at once, and deep seated chairs and couches that promise maximum relaxation and comfort.

TIP:  Looking to update your outdoor furniture but don’t have the budget to replace it all?  Then consider having new fabrics put onto your existing furniture, or update the look with some on-trend throw outdoor throw cushions.
