Spring Project: Deck/Outdoor Space Redo

Spring will soon be here, and that means more time spent outdoors enjoying barbeques and get togethers with family and friends. Make your outdoor space look great by decorating it.

The first thing you should decide is if you want an outdoor rug to brighten up the deck area, also a rug can help bring together a seating area by making it feel more like a room. This will give your deck the luxury of being an extension of your home.

If you already have outdoor seating then they may just need to be cleaned up, have the cushions recovered, or even sand them down and give them a new paint job. If you need new seating or just need to add some extra spots for guests then you might want to consider using outdoor benches, these offer seating for 2 people or a seat for 1 person who just wants to stretch out. Make your bench do double duty by purchasing one that has built in storage.

If you plan on using your outdoor space for eating, then you will want to invest in an outdoor table, or refurnish an old one that you already have.

Once you have all your main furniture in place, some outdoor decorative items should come into play. Choose items that reflect your style. Whether you prefer old world style sundials or want some decorative outdoor lighting to help ensure the parties go on into the night, just be sure to choose items that are durable and are in a style that will make you happy for years to come.
