Your patio and deck make an excellent venue for a social gathering. With summer in full swing, consider adding additional décor to complement the season of fun in the sun. If you really want to wow your guests, spruce up your outdoor living space with affordable accessories and simple modifications. Follow these summer deck design tips for an elaborate yet inexpensive makeover.
Classic Bistro Lights – A strand or two of Edison bulb string lights can be hung above the patio’s entry way or above the table. The lights provide a gorgeous dim glow especially as the sun sets. They’re also easily removable, which makes them a great temporary fixture.
Nautical Beach Lanterns – These can be hung or placed on the table. They can also be made at home. All you need is a mason jar, a thick candlestick, and some sand and/or clamshells for visual effects. Click here for what a beach lantern looks like.
Vertical Garden Displays – If you have limited deck space, consider adding a vertical wall planter. These can be hung on the wall and are perfect for adding plants and flowers without consuming space. Summer plants and flowers to consider include: asters, coreopsis, purple fountain grass, moonshines, and caladiums.
Bean Chairs – Beanbag chairs are often thought of as an indoor item, but they add a chic appearance when used in place of conventional patio chairs. For added ambiance, use chairs with bright colors like yellow or orange.
Water Fountains – The presence of flowing water brings tranquility and a Zen-like atmosphere. You don’t need to invest in a koi pond or large outdoor fountain. A simple tabletop fountain with a recirculating pump will suffice.
