It is officially Summer! For many of us, that means it is time to start sprucing up our outdoor space so we can enjoy the beautiful weather with family and friends. Creating an outdoor space with your fingerprint in it is a wonderful way to help you and your guests feel comfortable, happy, and inspired! The best part, it doesn't have to be hard or expensive! Without further ado, here are 3 easy tips to help you spruce up your outdoor space!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Do you have a storage room where you hide pieces of furniture that once looked great in your home that no longer fit the bill? Grab a cabinet, dresser, or other used pieces of furniture, slap a layer of outdoor paint on it, and put it in a corner of your outdoor space! These furniture pieces can be used as unique vertical gardens, outdoor storage, or a pop of color and personality!
(Pro-tip: If you don't own furniture you want to use outdoors, keep an eye out for what folks are giving away for free on Facebook Marketplace!)
Let There Be Lights
Few things enhance an outdoor space like lighting. Whether it is hanging lights, strings lights, twinkle lights or others, lights create a warm and cozy atmosphere. This is an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up your outdoor space!
Shade, Seats, & Splash of Color
Who doesn't love sitting in a comfy seat in a shady spot on a sunny day? A colorful and welcoming seating area under a deck or shady tree is a guarantee for happy guests. Try to maximize the potential that covered porches, the under side of decks, or large trees offer your home! Add your special touch by getting some colorful outdoor pillows for your seats!
Remember to have fun and allow your outdoor space to be a reflection of what you love!
