Patio Furniture and Decoration Trends You Shouldn’t Miss This Summer
What’s better than relaxing the sunny spring and summer days away than with friends and family on your newly decorated patio?
If your patio is in need of a décor update, use these trending decorations and outdoor furniture ideas for summer 2015!
Bright Colors and Patterns
From furniture to decorations, bright colors and patterns strategically mixed with neutral tones are a hot choice this summer. Greens, blues, pinks, and even orange tones are especially in this year.
Try adding vibrant patterns against solid, yet bold, colors to have your patio stand out and be the brightest patio on the block.
Arrange Your Furniture Family-Style
As each year goes by, patio trends and arrangements are more and more focused on conversation, fun, and relaxation rather than fancy little knick-knacks and witty porch signs. This summer (and all year long) arrange your patio chairs, tables, and other furniture to stimulate relaxation and conversation. One common arrangement is to have the outdoor table in the middle of your patio so everyone can enjoy a great meal surrounded by friends and family members.
Some homeowners do not have a spacious backyard with endless opportunities for luxurious gardens. However, you can combat this by adding specific potted plants to your patio. Common plant choices include:
Include a Fire Pit
You can easily implement a fire pit in your patio. Whether you build it along with your patio, or purchase a safe external fire pit, these patio accessories can tie your entire outdoor porch together. If you choose to build a new patio with a built-in fire pit, make sure you strategically place the fire pit in a safe place. Typically, the middle area of your patio is best – away from your house, garden, and other flammable objects.
Gorgeous Lighting Arrangements
Whether you choose tiki torches, string lights, or lanterns, you’ll want something to brighten up each night you spend with family and friends on your patio. Try to choose a lighting option that does not distract from the overall ambiance and atmosphere you have created for your patio.
