As the days get longer, most homeowners begin spending a lot more time outdoors. If you’re itching to spruce up your outdoor patio or deck, we’re here to help! We have 5 tips for creating a perfect outdoor space.
- Start with quality furniture
When it comes to patio furniture, consider classic pieces that will stand the test of time. If you have a few pieces that you truly love as your base, you can always update your cushions and linens after a few seasons.
- Incorporate trendier pillows and throws
If you want to incorporate trendier elements on your patio, consider fun pillows and throw blankets for your pop-of-color. These items are less of an investment and are easy to replace if you tire of them.
- Add lighting for ambiance
Outdoor lighting goes a long way in adding some ambiance to your space. Consider outdoor light fixtures, uplighting to draw attention to specific focal points, and outdoor candles or garden torches for the perfect touch to an outdoor evening.
- Think texture
Without texture, outdoor spaces can feel a bit cold or unfinished. Having a basket with a variety of blankets nearby for those cooler summer nights can quickly transform the look and feel of your outdoor space. Incorporating pillows and throws with texture will also give your space some visual interest. And outdoor rugs are another great way to add texture to your patio.
- Add greenery
No outdoor space is complete without some seasonal plants. Adding a variety of plants will add a lot of life to your patio. Consider adding a tall plant or two for height, along with some easy-to-maintain greenery (like ferns), and some blooms that offer a bright, seasonal pop-of-color.
