The warm weather is finally here and it’s time to kick back on your patio with a glass of old-fashioned, southern sweet tea. There’s just one problem. Your patio is boring and could use a little spice. Sprucing up your patio is as easy as adding furniture, plants and a little light.
Plants galore! Putting a few potted plants on your patio is an easy way to make it feel homier. Combining lush green plants with flowering plants adds vibrancy and color to the space. Some plants such as vanilla leaf and citronella can help ward off mosquitos and make your outdoor time more comfortable.
Furnish it. The right outdoor furniture can help make the patio feel like an extension of your home. If you’re on a skimpy budget, visit a local home improvement store or large-chain retailer to find reasonably priced patio furniture. Use bold-colored pillows and other outdoor accessories to make the space come alive.
Let there be light! If you’re the type of person who enjoys being outside at night, invest in some outdoor lighting. String lights, lanterns, umbrella lights and flood lights work well to brighten up the patio after dark. If conserving energy is your thing, solar lighting is also an option.
Resurface it. If your patio is cracked or in need of a facelift, consider having it resurfaced. A professional concrete finisher can help you determine whether or not your patio can be resurfaced.
