Warmer temperatures have finally arrived in Northeast Ohio, and there is no better way to celebrate than to update your outdoor décor for the spring and summer seasons. With a few simple changes, you can create a space that feels completely new. Here are some tips to renew your space.
Upgrade your outdoor furniture. Consider choosing furniture in neutral shades to allow the natural greenery and colors of your outdoor landscape to shine! Neutral furniture also provides a great canvas to add color in other elements of your outdoor décor. Or, pick one distinct focal piece such as an outdoor dining table.
Update the color scheme! While you may take less risk with colors inside your house, feel free to be more daring outdoors. From blankets to throw pillows, choose items in bright shades of blue, yellow, red, and orange. Have fun with contrasting patterns and mismatched colors.
Buy an outdoor rug. An outdoor rug can help define a gathering space, such as an eating area. With so many patterns and options, a rug will also instantly give your space a new look. Rugs designed for the outdoors are specially crafted to be resistant to fading from the sun as well as mildew, and will require little maintenance.
Be creative with lighting. From a simple string of lights to a rustic chandelier, outdoor lighting can extend your social gatherings long after the sun has gone down! There are many lighting options to help you achieve a variety of looks, from formal and elegant to fun and whimsical.
Redesign a walkway.A well-planned walkway can be a stunning design feature in your outdoor space. Consider redesigning an existing walkway or adding a completely new entrance to your home or backyard area.
Find unique seating options.Warm weather means much more time spent outdoors. Make sure you have ample seating for your family and guests. Consider unique options, such as a refurbished bench, an upholstered ottoman, or an outdoor bean bag chair, to provide seating throughout your outdoor space.
