Don’t be afraid to add some color. It’s okay to go bright and use lots of contrast. You can add color to your patio by getting some new throw pillows for your couches and chairs, putting out a cheerful, outdoor rug, and arranging some decorative pots of plants or flowers. You can add a few smaller pieces of furniture in brighter colors as well, such as end tables, stools, or extra chairs.
Add Plant Life
A few tropical plants or containers full of flowers will do wonders when it comes to bringing your patio or deck to life. Choose plants suited to the climate where you live. Whether you opt for majesty palms, a variety of succulents, or ornamental red and purple peppers, you can’t go wrong when you decorate your outdoor space with growing things.
Make your backyard glow with the clever use of creative lighting. You can hang string lights overhead or attach them to the wall, in addition to arranging lanterns around the seating area. Large, patio candles with wind protection also work well and bring in that cozy feel.
A fun, new trend is to put more focus on the nearest wall. Accenting this surface makes it more a part of the overall space, giving you that “outdoor room” feel. Some popular ways of decorating a patio wall include hanging a weather-resistant print or attaching vertical, wall planters. You can even install a decorative fence panel to make a completely new wall on the open side of your patio if you want the area to be more intimate. Lighting placed around panels which have cut-out designs looks sharp and gives off artistic, glowing patterns.
