With the promise of sunny skies and warmer weather right at our doorstep, it’s time to start thinking about getting our outdoor spaces ready for relaxing afternoons and family get-togethers.
Here are a few quick ideas on how you can have your patio refreshed and ready to greet the season in just a day!
Functional areas for seating and dining are the cornerstone of a great patio. Having a well laid out plan helps maximize the footprint, makes entertaining a breeze, and creates an aesthetically pleasing extension of your home. Ensure your furniture works well within your patio or deck space, maybe rearrange what you have or consider new styles that maximize your outdoor area.
Update the Color Scheme
With nature blooming new colors each day, incorporating fresh hues in our decor is a great way to celebrate the changing seasons. Selecting new colors and patterns may be the easiest and most cost effective way to breathe new life into a space. Pillows, throws, and area rugs offer wonderful opportunities to introduce these elements. Combining complementary textures, patterns, and colors instantly add visual interest and character.
Fresh Flowers + Greenery
One of the best ways to transform your space from a backyard patio that winter hid away, to your own outdoor spring retreat is the addition of greenery and fresh flowers. Plants have a wonderful way of creating a welcoming environment, as they are a sign of life and vitality. Try adding planters with spring blooms in varying heights, taller plants to fill in gaps or corner spaces, and smaller table top arrangements to add texture.
Evenings spent on the patio are made even more magical with the help of ambient lighting. Try stringing bistro lights for instant romance or perhaps a grouping of lanterns or candles to add to the ambience and enhance the experience.
With these simple ideas, you should have your patio refreshed and ready to welcome spring in no time!
