It’s time to get porches, patios and front door stoops ready for outdoor living! Now’s the time to do little things to an outside space to make it a fabulous outdoor living area. With these simple tips you'll have a clean and well decorated area to enjoy the upcoming summer.
Plants bring life and beauty to any outdoor living space. The more the merrier- change your floral combinations this year think texture as much as you think flowers. There are no real rules for a successful textural combination. Just go to the nursery and pull together plants you like in the wagon they provide and see what looks good grouped. Look for plants with different leaf sizes, shades, and types.
Create a Seating Area:
Space planning can convert even a small porch into a useful area. A corner can accommodate a round dining table well. Similarly, a walkway is an ideal spot to have a sofa and chair combo, pushed with backs against a wall or railing.
Add Outdoor Pillows + Cushions:
Add color and pattern to your patio with fabrics. There's nothing like new pillows and cushions to change the whole mood of a place. Toss in some patterned pillows with solids for a more dynamic look.
Add Privacy + Block The Sun:
Block the intense sun rays, by fixing a pergola or trellis. It will also expand the utility of the space. It will also lend support for flowers and vines as well.
