If the last two summers have taught us anything it’s that our outdoor spaces are more important than ever. People have been upgrading their yards, spending lots of money on making their backyard another room of their home. Gatherings are taking place outside and people are enjoying hanging out around the fire. Here are a couple of trends that we think are going to be big for “backyarding” in 2022.
Outdoor Living Rooms
Extending your indoor spaces is going to be a highlight of summer 2022. Making your patio space cozier with sofas, chairs, chaise lounges, rugs, tables and more is going to be the trend to beat. People want to have an extension of their indoor area, so lamps, pillows, blankets, string lights and more will be additional items to cozy up your outdoor space and extend your living room.
Plants, Plants, Plants
Indoor plants exploded in 2021. With people spending more time at home, they had the time to cultivate their indoor gardens. Expect this trend to continue with not only indoor plants but moving that love to outdoor plants. Making your outdoor space feel like your indoor space with greenery is going to be a huge trend in 2022.
Along the same lines as extending living rooms, cooking outside is going to be a major trend in 2022. There’s nothing better than dining alfresco and adding an outdoor cooking space whether it be a grill or pizza oven or something else, is going to be key.

The addition of outdoor fire is going to be a major trend in 2022. People want to use their outdoor space as much and as long as they can and adding a fire feature that gives off heat can do exactly that. Not only do fire pit tables serve as a gathering point on your outdoor space but they put off a great deal of heat to keep you cozy and warm as those fall nights start to creep in.
