With warmer weather approaching, giving your patio a facelift early on will allow you to enjoy it all summer long. With wheels already in motion for entertaining, backyard barbeques, or just plain kicking back, putting a fresh look on an outdoor space is a “must.”
What’s not to love about springtime and enjoying the pleasant weather after a cold wet winter in the Northwest? Spring is the time for rejuvenation that brings new life to old settings – like your backyard patio.
Now, don’t cringe. With a few handy tips and suggestions these tried and true ideas can be done over the weekend – and by you!
How easy is this update? Go for an eclectic looking patio by incorporating new funky and fun furniture that’s easy to care for and is kid friendly. The mixing of materials and the straight legged lines brings a relaxed atmosphere that’s ideal for cookouts or playing games. The worry-free, versatile, and easy to clean table and chair surfaces make it perfect for an outdoors setting that can be moved anywhere.
Sometimes all it takes is replacing those old cushions with vivid springtime colors or updating your outside lounging area with a more modern twist. When updating your outdoor pieces you want something that will be resilient to the elements.
Choose from either cedar, teak, or pine woods, wrought iron and aluminum metals, all-weather wicker, or affordable designer resin for longevity and good wear factor.
Movie night will never be the same. Kids and adults alike couldn’t find this outside space any cooler - a backyard movie night with cozy full-size cushions, comfy pillows, outdoor lights, and of course, this awesome portable screen. You don’t have to go all out to make your backyard space an inviting, fun, and awesome place to entertain.
Whatever décor updates, additions, or new furnishings, make sure that it’s unpredictable.
Who wants your outdoor space to look just like your neighbors’? So use your imagination and create an outdoor space that’s fun and unique.
Sometimes all it takes is some new lighting and some simple chairs to give you that sweet retreat. If you’re one of those lucky individuals that have a green thumb – then go for it. It’s simply amazing how a quick change or addition of flowers and greenery can change the whole look and mood of a patio. Simple string lights and lanterns add instant appeal.
I just love this bright sunny yellow settee! Perfect for ushering in spring, brightening up your mood and giving charm to a small area. Whether you’re living in a home, condo, or apartment, sometimes there isn’t a backyard, or the patio area is really small, it doesn’t mean you can’t spruce it up and give it a personality makeover.
What an ideal space to have breakfast, enjoy an afternoon latte, and have a quaint dinner for two. How clever were these homeowners to paint the house’s doorframe the same sunny color as the settee, incorporating the patio as an extended part of the home instead of a separate isolated space.
The natural charm of a garden is the perfect place to rejuvenate surrounded with lush greenery and natural elements. If you have a small garden or secluded area outside, use the natural landscape as the backdrop to an inviting outdoor living space. These are just such special spaces that are meant to be enjoyed with family, friends, or even a quiet escape for yourself to relax after a busy day.
In secluded settings earth tones work best as they naturally blend into the surrounding foliage. By adding some natural wood seating pieces, comfy pillows, a sturdy table, and extra potted plants creates an intimate gathering space.
Need a few extra modern and useful décor pieces for your outdoor space that keep your budget in mind? When the early spring evenings turn cool, these wonderful outdoor heaters will keep you warm and cozy all night.
Dream away in this cool wicker swinging daybed. Toss a few pillows and relax, visit, or just take a long nap. This is truly a unique piece that will look stylish by the pool, on the patio, in the garden, or even in your home. What an ideal furniture solution for a sunroom.
It just seems natural that you’ll find friends and guests gathering around the glow of a fire pit/table no matter the season. The newer fire tables are fueled by natural gas with a streamlined profile that blends seamlessly into the natural environment.
Need some light? Well, don’t be shy. These eclectic table lamp style outdoor lights make an impressive impact at 7ft tall. You can permanently leave them out all year, (with a 150lb iron base they’re staying put) as they are a significant light source for all those late night activities.
