Outdoor space is as important as indoors. It is where you enjoy a quiet time watching the sunset or watch your kids play to their heart’s content. With simple tools and design ideas, you can create a perfect outdoor space.
If you have a cement patio, keep sleek chairs or a classy bench. Keep a small wooden table and place a few potted plants on it. Arrange the pots in a scattered way instead of clubbing them together. Using colourful pots for holding the plants will add a dash of colour to your outdoor space.
Work on the walls to pep up the look of your outdoor space. Install a trellis along the walls. Use it for hanging decorative items. For brick walls, place a couple of hanging planters and lanterns to take the rustic look several notches higher.
Want a fuss – free outdoor space? Try covering the floor with gravels. You can even use crushed limestone instead of gravels. This way you do not have to mow the grasses regularly. Plant flowers along the edges.
Use warm hues to cover the furniture items. If you’re a “green” loving person then natural hues would be just the right option for you.
Exterior window boxes filled with colourful outdoor plants can amp up your outdoor decor.
This will add an extra layer of colour and comfort to your outdoor decor. Use durable outdoor rugs so that they can withstand wear and tear.
Look for containers around your house and use them as planters. You can use wooden crates, small jars as planters.
Install colourful light fixtures or bistro lights to give your outdoor space a cozy feel.
They not only add style to your outdoor space but also protect you from harsh weather and insects. During summers, you can enjoy the outdoors under the canopies in the yard.
Cover the gaps with colourful sedums. These plants add a pop of colour and are pleasant to eyes.
