Quick Start Guide To Patio Perfection
STEP ONE - Define your space (or spaces if you're fancy).
Are you an entertainer and prefer a big table adorned with flowers and charcuterie boards? Or do you prefer a small quaint space to dine and a larger area to lounge? OR perhaps you have have space for both!
STEP TWO - Determine your theme.
Do you like Boho or maybe a coastal vibe. Are you thinking more tropical or maybe modern and streamlined?
STEP THREE - Pinterest. Pinterest. Pinterest.
It's always good to see your theme in action and in a space that may be similar to yours.
STEP FOUR - Make a list & research the options!
Once you feel you have a good idea of your look, make a list. List out the items you already have and ones you need to purchase. Maybe your bistro set just needs fresh spray paint. We love using Rust-oleum for a quick easy face lift.
Maybe you have a great table and chairs but you just need a new set of seat cushions, an umbrella and maybe a rug if you want to define multiple areas. Some of our favs:
BONUS TIP: When looking for budget friendly items, consider waiting for sales or even hitting up some neighborhood garage sales!
STEP FIVE - GO GREEN!
Once you've tackled the furniture consider going green... with plants! You can add planters or if you are working with a tight space consider a more vertical option. AND if you don’t have a lot of time or energy to adorn your patio with living plants, you can always go faux!
STEP SIX - ADD LIGHTS!
Consider adding some lighting. String lights can add some elegance to your space whether you line your fence with them or add an anchor/pole in the yard or a planter.
STEP SEVEN - Finalize with fire!
There are many options to either just create some ambience or add some pizazz with a lot of heat...Gas or wood burning.
And voila! Your patio is now impressive!! Now, show us yours!
