Your outdoor space has likely been in a state of hibernation since last year, overcome with mountains of leaves, spider webs and now, pollen. With outdoor parties and lounging on the horizon, it's time to get our outdoor spaces in tip-top shape. Together, shall we?
Maybe your deck isn't the definition of "outdoor oasis." That's OK! There are simple things you can do to make it feel that way no matter what your backdrop is. A rug here, some potted florals there; you'll be surprised at how quickly your outdoor space will take shape.
Take a look a these 9 quick, easy and budget-friendly updates you can make this weekend. Then, start lounging.
Re-Paint Your Front Door
Give your home instant curb appeal by simply updating your front door with a fresh coat of paint. Plus, did you know that sun and heat can warp and crack your wood door's surface over time? Re-painting your door will also help seal the wood and protect it from the elements. Pretty and functional; that's a win, win.
Add in Mix-and-Match Seating
Cozy up your outdoor space with mismatched seating that can be moved in an instant. Garden stools and weather-friendly woven chairs are perfect for entertaining large groups. And when it's just you? The garden stools double as ottomans, side tables and plant stands.
Opt for Space-Saving Tables
Short on space? Collapsible bistro tables in bold hues make for perfect mobile dining tables. When not in use, simply tuck away.
Keep Things Private
It's difficult to enjoy the beauty of your patio with your neighbor 10 feet away. Outdoor draperies are a thing and they're magical. They're meant to withstand the elements and ensure your space is indeed your space. Install drapery panels around the entire perimeter of a space using galvanized metal plumbing conduit so you can open and close as you wish.
Soften Your Underfoot
Add soft underfoot with a graphic area rug. You may cringe at the thought of adding a rug to your outdoor space, but outdoor rugs are meant for this locale. They're quick-drying and resistant to fading, stains and mildew. Plus, you can simply hose them down when they get particularly dirty. Done and done.
Go Bold With Color
What's your favorite color? Incorporate it into your outdoor space! Gone are the days of safe beige and browns. Here, we used shades of aqua, turquoise and cobalt from the rug and tabletop decor to the various garden stools. BTW, if you want a pink patio, no one's stopping you. Certainly not us!
Add Some Liveliness
A quick way to add lots of life to your deck is with a grouping of potted plants. Pick up fun planters in mix-and-match colors, shapes and sizes, then group them together in odd numbers for a cohesive look.
Dress Up Your Old Fence
Tired of looking at your tired, old fence? This is a bit daring but SO fun. Use a graphic, patterned template to add an oversized mural to your fence. It will look like a piece of amazing, hand-painted artwork.

Bring the Indoors Out
