Using Luxury Patio Furniture to Transform the Home Into a Tropical Paradise

Can’t make it to the beach this year? Times are tight, but if your plans to economize mean cutting out the vacations, consider spending a little extra on beautifying your home. A few choice pieces of luxury patio furniture can turn a backyard in a Garden of Eden, so you’ll never want to leave home again. Even in you don’t want to invest in a full-scale patio set, or if you already have one, one or two indulgences is all you really need. Here, now are a few suggestions: Hammocks In the old days, a hammock consisted of woven rope tied precariously in between two trees, and you were lucky to find two trees the right distance apart. Today, the classic white woven rope is still around, but now pretty much all hammocks are free-standing, so they can easily be moved and are steadier. As far as luxury patio furniture, having a hammock in itself can be considered a luxury, not because they’re expensive, but because they afford their owner the most luxurious of relaxation. However, modern innovation has come up with some fancy and hip new designs, bestowing upon some hammocks the luxury moniker. Fancier models are made with nylon, chenille and more, and come in a myriad of colors and shapes. Some are big enough for two people, while the hammock chair is a popular and more compact option. Cabanas Nothing says lounging by the pool in style like a cabana. Whether or not you actually own a pool is unimportant; adding a cabana to your luxury patio furniture is the apex of elegance. Most types resemble an oversized wooden, four-poster bed with a roof. Meant to comfortably seat anywhere from 2 or more people depending on the type, cabanas come with a weather-resistant mattress and pillows. Some also feature canvas siding, which can be unfurled for added privacy. Hot Tubs A perfect fit for patios and decks are of course, hot tubs. When it comes to luxury patio furniture, hot tubs are incomparable and absolutely synonymous with relaxation. What most folks don’t realize is that hot tubs are more affordable than people think. Sure, the fancier models will run upwards of $5,000 but there are pared down versions which are just as good for under $1,000. Perfect for relieving muscle pain and tension, hot tubs are enjoyable for all ages. Outdoor Saunas Bring the spa home with your very own sauna. Passed down from Finnish tradition, these rooms utilize a dry or moist heat, often employing water poured over hot stones. The idea is that the heat cleanses and exfoliates the body from toxins. Added benefits included are that saunas tend to alleviate bronchitis, asthma and other respiratory disease. They are also proven to lessen rheumatoid arthritis. Saunas are usually made from wood, especially cedar and are traditionally rectangular or round-shaped. They do not take up too much room and make an attractive addition to luxury patio furniture, especially with matching woods. Fire Pit Capture the ambiance of a beachside bonfire with a safe and beautiful fire pit. Though there are many affordable versions on the market, high end fire pits and outdoor fireplaces can be very ornate. While traditional fire pits and chimineas tend to be constructed from stone, brick and metal, but some newer versions feature a fireproof see-through glass frame. Some fire pits are so compact they fit on the table and can be brought (with caution, of course) inside to a sunroom. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars in renovations to achieve an enviable luxury patio furniture setup. All it usually takes is just one well-thought accent, whether that’s a sauna, a fire pit, etc. to reinvent your backyard and turn it into a home away from home.
