Decorate Your Patio on A Budget

The weather is warming, flowers are blooming, and families are spending more and more time outside! Summer is the season of celebrations and soaking up the sun. We want you to party in style so here are some of our top budget-friendly tips to decorate your patio.

LOW-MAINTENANCE PLANTS

Plants are an excellent, low-cost addition to your patio. You can find plants at your local nursery that will be easy to grow in your climate. Plants that don't need much water are a great choice and can come in many colors, shapes, and sizes to suit your preferences.

ADD POPS OF COLOR

Even on a small patio, there are a lot of ways you can infuse some vibrant colors. Get yourself a single can of paint or spray paint and take your old furniture from old to new! Don't want to paint the furniture? Get new pillows or reupholster the old ones for a quick update. 

STRING UP FAIRY LIGHTS

FAIRY LIGHTS FOR PATIO

A few strands of twinkly lights can take a space from boring and dark to happy and special in just minutes. You can find lights that fit just your style - bigger bulbs or almost invisible LED, an older, Einstein-bulb look or something more modern. Lighting is a super simple, inexpensive way to take the patio up a notch!

USE FOUND ITEMS

Did your kids find a cool piece of driftwood on your last beach vacation? Use that as the inspiration piece for your patio decorating! A special item could be found from an antique store or garage sale - keep your eyes open for those unique objects to add to your collection.

ADD COLOR BENEATH YOUR FEET

Patio Rugs

Painting the floors, adding a rug, or even just giving your patio a thorough cleaning can have a big impact. Certain patterns and shades can make some spaces feel bigger or more luxurious. Pick something fun and vibrant for a more energizing feel. 

Enjoy time on your patio this summer and use these tips to step it up a notch! Have fun with the process so that you can have more fun with the people who matter most in your life
