?Take a look out the window at your patio or deck. Does it look a little drab and uninviting? With a little work, you can transform your home's outdoor living spaces into your family's favorite place to hang out this summer.
Modern Trends to Bring Style Back to Your Patio or Deck
Your outdoor space is all about creating a style which works for you. Check out these suggestions on how to create your ultimate at-home getaway.
Know how people will use the space. One common mistake many homeowners make in decorating their outdoor space is that they forget to think about how people will use the space. When you think of outdoor areas as rooms, it is easier to design a layout which lets people interact and use the space efficiently. A durable outdoor rug is a simple way to help to define individual spaces.
Bold is beautiful. Outdoor living is all about encouraging freedom. Pump up your patio's style by incorporating bright and bold designs into your outdoor living spaces. Think about using thick striped upholstery for the cushions on your furniture. Bright, cheery colors like orange and red create a vibrant feeling. Make it wild by covering your throw pillows in fun prints.
Calm is good too. Not everyone is into bright colors, and that is okay. Washed out blues, grays and cream colors give your outdoor living space a coastal vibe. Add woven furniture for a classic summer getaway feel. Decorating with furniture made from other natural materials will help create a relaxing place to hang out.
Simple is always classy. Avoid bulky furniture and instead select streamlined pieces made from metal and glass to give your patio a touch of sophistication. Keep it classy by sticking to solid, neutral colors on your staple pieces.
Bring the indoors outside. Plastic or metal furniture made for the outdoors may be the most durable option, but it isn't always the most attractive one. Using furniture which wouldn't look out of place inside your home outside helps to create an extension of your indoor living space. As long as you protect the space from the weather, your choices for decoration are endless.
Make it easy to entertain. Outdoor living spaces are the perfect place to hold a summer party. Make it as easy as possible by creating an outdoor kitchen complete with a grill, fridge and sink. Provide lots of comfortable seating and a big enough table for everyone to gather around. Weatherproof speakers or even a TV will bring your parties to the next level. Add an outdoor fireplace or fire pit to provide warmth for cool evenings.
Can't wait to start transforming your home's outdoor living space? You better be quick, summer is almost here.
