The weather is getting warmer, and summer is just around the corner! It’s time to prepare your outdoor spaces for a season of barbecues, pool days, and tons of sunshine. Give your patio or backyard a well-deserved upgrade this year and create the perfect fun in the Sun vibe.  

A beautiful outdoor oasis can be achieved in a space of any size. We’ve compiled a list of essentials to help you tackle the project, no matter the square footage. Here is everything you’ll need to start relaxing this summer.

For the Apartment Balcony  

No backyard? No problem! For small spaces, you can still enjoy the sunshine from your apartment balcony.

Start by illuminating the space with hanging lights. This will bring the bright aura of golden hour to your home.  

And to help you unwind, try a hammock chair! Hanging chairs are amazing small space options that allow you to find relaxation with an amazing view. Our Habana Organic Cotton Hammock Chair is a great balcony accessory, with several hanging options depending on if you’re a renter or a homeowner.

 

 

With our easy to install suspension system, your hanging chair can be a permanent feature of your balcony. Or you can use a hammock stand that allows you to use your chair as a sleek fixture inside or outside of your home.

For the Backyard, Patio, or Pool

Summertime fun starts in the backyard, so let a hammock be the centerpiece of the season’s activity and relaxation. Hammocks bring a pop of color to your outdoor area, and unparalleled comfort. Whether it’s displayed poolside on a chic stand or hung between two shady trees, it’s a great addition to your landscape.

 

 

The Brisa Classic Hammock and Elipso Stand are the perfect pair for your summer escape. With easy setup, the Brisa is made to withstand the strong sun and possible thunderstorms. You can also set up a hammock chair in your front yard. It’ll act as a perch so you can keep an eye on the kiddos while they ride their bikes.

For the Summertime Traveler

It’s time for an adventure. Whether you are just heading to the beach down the road or have planned a summer road trip, don’t forget a hammock! Most of our hammocks are weather-resistant and a great for any journey, but a travel hammock can become your adventure companion.  

 

 

Each travel hammock comes with a compact carrying case, which is perfect for minimalist packers. A portable hammock can help you rest after a long hike or an afternoon in the water.  

Pick a spot to enjoy the scenery of each stop. Take a picture and tag us in your hammock hangs, we’d love to see where your journey takes you this summer.
