It’s summertime, and that means it’s the season of outdoor parties, grilling, fresh air, and sunshine. It also gives you the perfect excuse to make over your neglected patio space. Here are a few quick tips to update your patio’s look and feel without breaking your budget.
1. Add a softening touch.
Outdoor patio curtains soften the feel of a patio area, making it seem more like a room than just an outdoor space. By adding patio curtains in a chic, bright color–we love the crisp summery feel of the Solid Green Outdoor Grommet Top Curtains–you’ll give your outdoor space the basis for a color scheme while softening the edges of your patio space.
2. Update your furniture’s cushions and covers.
You don’t have to replace your patio furniture to give it new life. Simply brushing the dust off your existing outdoors set and investing in new seat cushions and furniture covers will refresh your look and make your space feel like new.
Outdoor dinnerware is inexpensive and and easy way to complete the look of your space. Look into inexpensive plastic vases and planters, and finish your look with flowers and plants that grow well in your area. Whatever your style, you can find easy, inexpensive ways to add accessories that really make your outdoor space one of a kind.
4. Upgrade the details.
If you want your patio to have a classier feel, don’t be afraid to treat it more like a dining room and less like a picnic space. Try coupling fabric napkins and standard silverware with your outdoor dinnerware to update the look. Taking the time to add an outdoor speaker system to your patio area can also work wonders for the atmosphere of your outdoor space. Pinch pleat curtains or other outdoor curtains that can be easily laundered also give an outdoor space a more elegant feel.
