We can’t think of a better way to welcome the warmer weather than by relaxing on a patio, and with summer fast approaching, an outdoor patio can quickly become the heart of the home. Enjoy your patio this season by following our 5 spring patio décor tips:
- Choose a Colour Palette
The spring and summer seasons inspire us to be bolder with colour. Pick one that inspires you, and use it as a starting point for decorating your space. If you prefer neutrals, add colourful throw pillows to brighten up the space. For those who love to get loud go ahead and choose those colourful furniture and accessories; the choice is up to you. Have fun with it!
- Create a Space to Gather
This is going to sound totally obvious but if you don’t have somewhere for guests to sit, you probably won’t spend much time there. For smaller patios, you may want seating that is easy to fold up and put away. For those with more space, a sectional or plush seating can transform your patio to an outdoor living room.
- Light Up the Space
Lighting is a great way to add some life to the patio and there are lots of options to choose from. String white lights above or on railings, or hang lanterns to add some additional accent lights.
- Keep Guests Warm
We all know how quickly things can cool down once the sun goes down. A supply of cozy blankets will not only keep you warm, they also add an element of colour and design.
- Plant Some Style
Potted plants offer endless opportunities by adding colour, life, and a breath of fresh air to your space. Play around with the colours, sizes and even textures of pots to make it your own. Whether you prefer flowers or greenery, potted plants are a great way to create some privacy for your new sanctuary.
