5 Tips for Decorating Your Patio
When you spend a lot of time at home, you want it to be as comfortable as possible. Your outdoor area can be an extension of your home.
At Ultra Modern, we can help with multiple lines of American-made patio furniture built for your style! Let’s take at look at these five tips for decorating your patio.
Tip #1: Create a Gathering Spot
When creating an outdoor room or organizing your patio, you want to set aside a gathering space.
This is an area you frame with furniture and plants as a gathering place for friends and family.
Consider a fire pit, a water feature such as a fountain, a shady tree or a cozy seating area.
Add ambiance with candles and color through furniture fabric choices.
Tip #2: Add Shade and Lighting
In the daytime, you want to create a cozy, shady place to hang out. Pergolas or awnings provide shade from the hot, midday sun.
At night, you want to add some lighting. While you can add light with candles, you can increase the ambiance with lights in your trees. Hang a string of lights in your trees or on your pergola for that special vacation feeling.
The goal is to make your outdoor space into a retreat where you can get away from the cares of the world.
Tip #3: Pay Attention to Pattern
When you decorate your home, you think of paint colors, furniture fabric and pillow patterns and texture.
The same is true of your outdoor space. Decorate your patio as you would your home.
Bring your patio together with a color scheme. Mix florals, patterns and solids. Keep to similar colors for a cohesive look.
Tip #4: Add a Heater
During cool summer and fall evenings, a patio heater is a welcome addition.
Add one now, and you’ll find friends and family are more apt to use your outdoor space.
Tip #5: Add Water
Water is soothing, and it provides balance and harmony to your outdoor space.
From fountains to ponds, you’ll find they are the perfect accent to your patio or outdoor room.
Or, up the ante and add a hot tub or a swimming pool. Both are great for health and wellness as well as outdoor ambiance.
