Accessorizing your outdoor space can bring depth and ambiance into it. Your outdoor space can be a balcony, a backyard, a deck, or anything that’s outside. However, if you have a small space, then don’t overdo on putting a lot into it. A lot of accessories can be used whatever season it is. But not all of them, there may be some where you have to put them inside the house as the fall or winter season arrives.
Spicing up your outdoor space can be beneficial especially if you’re planning to sell your home in the future. So how can we accessorize our outdoor space? Let’s find out below.
Privacy and Shelter is a Must
- Protect your outdoor space by creating a shelter that covers it. It can be a patio, or a patio umbrella, or a roof that’s architecturally designed to cover the outdoor space. You can also invest on getting taller bushes or fences to create privacy too.
Create an Ambiance
- You can create an ambiance for your outdoor space by picking the right color palette that complements to the style of the space. If you have Agapanthus plants or Lily outside your outdoor space, then pick the color blue or white. Create an inviting appearance by adding outdoor pillows and furnishings too. Keep in mind when picking a color palette, make sure that it complements to the color of your home. If your home looks dull and grey, then add a splash of color outdoors to add dimension into it.
Pick the Right Patio Furnishing
- Different varieties of patio furnishing came from different materials such as plastic, polymer, resin, wicker, wood, steel, and wrought iron, and it’s important to pick one that will last long depending on where you live. For example, some patio furnishing won’t last long when exposed to places with salt air such as Waterfront. Another thing is that when choosing patio furnishing, decide on how the arrangement will look like and see if it’ll fit into your storage during winter months.
- Light up the area during night time by putting hurricane lamps or candles. Our goal here is to keep the outdoor space comfortable and inviting to create ambiance. You can also invest in an outdoor fireplace too to keep things warm and cozy. Inexpensive fire pits that runs on propane tanks can be purchased on home improvement stores such as Walmart, Lowes, or Home Depot. Spice it up a bit by adding furnishing around the fireplace/fire pits too.
Outdoor Cooking Equipment
- There’s a lot of outdoor cooking equipment to choose in the market ranging from BBQ sets to complete outdoor kitchens equipped with sinks and running water. You can also get an outdoor refrigerator too if you want to have that complete outdoor kitchen experience. Make sure to keep these cooking equipment clean after every use to preserve its quality.
- Water Fountains
- If you have the budget, then water fountains is definitely a must have. Make sure that you have sufficient space for it though as this type of water feature can take up a lot of space depending on the size.
- Storage boxes can come in useful for storing your patio cushions during winter months. Some of these storage boxes are also waterproof to help keep your items dry.
- Add Outdoor Plants
- Whether it can be a hanging or a wall plant, outdoor plants can really add depth and beauty to your outdoor space. A lot of outdoor plants have striking foliage that can add dimension to your outdoor space such as the Staghorn fern, Fancy leaf caladium, rabbit’s foot fern and a whole lot more. Have a trip to your local nursery to ask about which plants grow best in the area where you’re residing in.
