Fresh flowers, the first rays of sunshine – spring really is the best time of the year.
It’s also a great time to make the most of your patio.
Here are five ideas you can use to really change your terrace, whether you host a garden party or just need a place for families to get away from this world.
1. Add a splash of color
Adding a splash of color can change your terrace space, and it’s very easy to do. All you need is some paint!
Now, there are several ways to discuss it.
One approach is to paint deck floors for color pop. Combine with carefully positioned tables or outdoor sofas and you can actually effectively create a sense of space.
Another approach is to paint half walls or houses incorporated in your garden design. If it is a small space, you can REALLY be brave with your colors!
2. Enter the texture with a pillow
One problem many porch owners have is the lack of texture. Outdoor furniture tends to be quite conservative in its decoration making it difficult to wear and easy to clean, but you do sacrifice it a bit.
A solution is to add fun throwing pillows with a variety of beautiful fabrics. There are many ways to prevent these people, so oyster your world when it comes to removing it!
3. Add the fire. Lots of fire.
Well, maybe not too much fire. But candles, fire pits (if you’re really ambitious) or a survivor-esque torch are all amazing in creating an atmosphere after sunset. Plus, they are a great way to keep insects away in the summer.
4. Invest in some fairy lights
There are so many kinds of fairy lamps now because they are a quick and easy way to really change your patio atmosphere. Either you go for a light bulb or you choose Edison style in full, it is a big investment for your open space.
You can also get converters that turn a socket into a plug if you are struggling to find a place to connect it.
5. Soften the hard edges with creepers
Finally, one of the best things you can do for your patio is to add plants to soften a little edge.
If you are patient and want to wait a few years, then the rose will look (and smell) amazing.
If you do not have enough time like that, or you do not really like gardening (roses need a lot of work), then there are many other plants that will work well. Go to the local garden center and see what they recommend.
Plants will look great if you have a louvered pergola patio cover, helping to soften and lower the roof to be more intimate.
