deck design ideas for deck pressure washing and staining, wood patio furniture

Did you have to cancel your annual beach vacation this year? Or maybe the allure of a packed beach doesn’t sound quite as nice anymore. As with many things in our lives as of late, we have had to make do with finding amusement in our own backyards.

The fun part about heading to your own backyard is that you can truly do whatever you want! You can spruce up the exterior painting on your deck or patio. Get a nice new umbrella or maybe an inflatable pool for the kids. Maybe even a sandbox. Let’s put our thinking caps on and really be creative with some backyard beach inspiration!

deck painting: backyard beach inspiration

One place you always want to start with when it comes to freshening things up is your deck or patio. Deck painting can go a long way to give a new feeling within your space. Plus, sometimes you’ll find yourself looking around your backyard and suddenly notice that your deck isn’t looking so hot anymore. Which, if you’re going the backyard beach route, you want it looking hot!

So, when we think of backyard beach inspiration, we think lighter woods. Anything that looks light and organic. Just some nice clear deck staining does the trick to keep things looking natural, but it still helps to protect your wood.

Another option to think about is to do a paint colour combination for your deck painting and nothing says beachy quite like gray and white! A beautiful way to pull off this combination is to go with something like Platinum Gray for the deck floor area. And then a crisp and clean white, like Simply White on the deck railings. You would be surprised how this colour combination just oozes with contemporary beachy vibes!


deck painting – muskoka chairs & tiki bars! 

Nothing says a classic Canadian beach experience quite like lounging on a Muskoka chair! In case you don’t know, it’s a classic wooden chair that’s slightly reclining with big arm rests. Basically, you will find Muskoka chairs at many beaches around Canada, especially if they’re in a woodsy area.

The fun part about Muskoka chairs is that you can really paint them any colour. If you want to go more beachy and fun, why not go with a bright yellow like, Yellow Rain Coat. It might also be nice to paint your Muskoka chair a pretty teal, like Captivating Teal.

For the adults, it might also be a fun idea to bring in a tiki bar! This Home Styles Bali Hai Patio Tiki Bar from Canadian Tire is such a great option as it’s definitely beach inspired, but still modern.

kids’ sandbox 

One important thing to think about when you’re looking for backyard beach vibes, you need some sand! It’s actually a pretty crucial step in this whole thing, isn’t it? This one is especially fun for the kids as well because they’ll get some good summer play time in a nice sandbox.

If you want to go super simple and just a basic box-frame kids’ sandbox, this Raised Garden/Sandbox Kit from Home Hardware is an option. And this Creative Cedar Design Octagon Wooden Sandbox from Amazon would look so great sitting just off your deck!

inflatable pool

Last, but certainly not least, you have to get a little water in the backyard with an inflatable pool! Inflatable pools are so much fun for the whole family. Sure, the kids are likely to get the most use out of them. But really, when it gets to those incredibly humid Canadian summers, you can totally jump in there for a few! Also, don’t forget to stick the dog in there if they get too hot as well.

This rectangular inflatable pool from Amazon is a budget friendly and easy option for the little ones. This Bestway 10 ft. inflatable pool from Home Depot is a bit deeper at 30 inches, so it’s nice for the adults to take a little dip. Don’t forget that there’s something to be said about pool toys as well. Even if you feel like just lounging, this Intex 56483EP Swim Center Family Pool from Walmart makes the perfect floatie!
