As the spring season quickly approaches, it’s time to start thinking about giving your outdoor space a little attention. Whether it’s relaxing out on the patio or hosting an outside dinner party, a beautiful outside space can be a nice retreat from life’s hustle-and-bustle. We’ve put together a few ideas for sprucing up your balcony, patio, or deck.
Refinish the furniture
Everything looks better with a fresh coat of paint! Update your tired looking wooden patio furniture with a new paint color or touch up the current coat. For metal furniture, spray paint can works wonders too! The fresh look will make the furniture seem like new.
Incorporate Accent Colors
From throw pillows to new flowerpots, there are plenty of ways to add spring colors to your outdoor living space. Textiles like pillows and rugs make the feel more comfortable and inviting. Looking for a fun DIY project? Get crafty and paint your own flowerpots—polka dots, stripes, whatever you want!
Add Fresh Flora
If you’re hosting a party in your outdoor area, fresh flowers and other greenery go a long way to creating an elegant space. With spring upon us, garden stores will have blooming plants perfect for the coming season. Plus, not only do flowers look pretty, but they also smell amazing.
Create Mood Lighting
Lighting is too often overlooked, especially in outdoor spaces. Whether you want to lighten up a dark space or just foster ambiance in your seating area, lighting could be the touch your patio is missing. With the help from stringed lights, paper lanterns, or even tube lights, you can transform your patio into a whimsical area that you’ll love.
