Feeling limited by your outdoor space? Even a small patio can have grand appeal with a few simple updates.
Transform your outdoor design with these small patio makeover ideas that work for any budget.
Add a Statement Rug
If you’re feeling a little shy about daring design choices, try an outdoor rug to make a statement. Bold colors or patterns add an eye-catching anchor to classic patio furniture pieces.
Bring on the Comfy Seating
Another simple way to add visual interest is with comfy seating. Arrange benches, chairs, or even swinging chairs in a way that makes it easy for guests to engage.
Increase the lounge factor with plush cushions and pillows. Layer different sizes, colors, or patterns for eye-catching, functional appeal.
Warm it Up
Maximize time spent on your patio with a fire feature. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit adds functional touch and ambiance on cooler nights.
Incorporate a Water Feature
A fountain is another way to add to the outdoor ambiance. Imagine enjoying your favorite book with the calming sound of water.
Add Some Greenery
Brighten up your backyard with plants or flowers. Choose large plants for a more decorative look. Or try a vertical container with herbs for more practical gardening.
Not only will plants and flowers give your space a vibrant new look, but they can also be a functional touch. For example, some plants like lavender and lemongrass repel bugs and mosquitos.
Use What You Already Have
Save money on your patio update by reimagining the items you already have. For example, repaint an old table for a fresh look, or turn a bookshelf into a bar cart.
Even small accessories like vases can have a new life in your outdoor living space.
