Sprucing Up Your Space: The Patio
March 22, 2017|Posted in: Uncategorized
Spring is right around the corner, and that means we will be leaving the warm nests of our homes and venturing to the outdoors! While we might be ready to shake off the last icy bits of winter from our wings, is your patio ready for entertaining? Check out these tips for sprucing up your patio space!
Add some extra lightening to your patio for after dark fun. String lights are beautiful and classy. If you have a bug problem, add some citronella candles or torches around your patio.
Patios should be cozy retreats, and adding curtains can create depth to your patio space. They also can provide much-needed shade from the blistering sun during the summer. Try not to go with any ornate designs. Stick to simple colors and lines.
Spice Up With a Fire Pit
Who doesn’t love a good fire pit? From chilly spring nights to backyard BBQs, a fire pit adds an extra spice to your patio. Plus, roasted marshmallows are a must year round.
Have Fun With Cushions
We recommend choosing neutral furniture and adding color with pillows and cushions. Be sure to purchase outdoor cushions and take them inside when you know it will be raining. This will help lengthen their lifespan.
Paint a Rug
We know that having an outdoor rug can be a little frustrating, but if you want the added pop of color to your space, you don’t have to put down fabric. Instead try stenciling a design with colorful paint directly on the wood, concrete or brick. It will provide a unique design and keep you from dealing with a wet rug after an unexpected summer shower.
Schedule a Soft Wash
Winter has a way of accumulating dirt and all kind of gross stuff on your patio. Schedule an appointment to have all of the dirt and grim cleared away before you start decorating for the new season. You won’t regret it!
