Refreshing Your Outdoor Space

As the weather warms up and we transition into spring and summer, it's the perfect time to refresh your outdoor living space. Even small upgrades to your patio, porch, deck or backyard can completely transform these spaces into an outdoor oasis that feels fresh and invigorated for the new season. Whether you're looking to overhaul your entire outdoor area or simply breathe new life into worn-out spaces, it's easier than ever to create an outdoor retreat that you'll want to spend all your time enjoying. Read on for easy ways to refresh your outdoor space that can help welcome warmer days outdoors.

Update with a New Rug and Pillows:

One of the quickest and easiest ways to refresh your outdoor space is by updating your rugs and pillows. Look for weather-resistant fabrics in vibrant colors and prints that reflect your personal style. Nautical stripes, boho patterns, and geometric shapes are all great options that will breathe new life into your space. Opt for materials like polypropylene, olefin, or acrylic which are fade and mildew resistant.

Investing in new rugs and pillows is an easy and affordable way to completely transform your patio, porch or deck. The right accessories can pull your entire outdoor area together, creating a cohesive and inviting space ready for relaxing and entertaining all season long.

Incorporate New Furniture:

Replacing worn or outdated furniture is one of the most impactful ways to refresh your outdoor living space. If your current patio set has seen better days, it may be time to swap it out for something new. Durable, weather-resistant materials like teak, aluminum, resin wicker, and high-grade plastic can withstand the elements for years while still looking stylish.

When shopping for new outdoor furniture, look for versatile pieces that allow you to configure your space to suit different needs. Side tables, ottomans, and chairs make it easy to create both intimate and open seating arrangements for conversation, dining, or lounging. Modular sectional sofas have also become popular for their flexibility.

Don't be afraid to mix materials and finishes to create visual interest. For example, combine teak dining chairs with an organic concrete dining table or pair wicker seating with sleek side tables. Playing with different textures and colors allows you to put together a cohesive yet unique look.

Add potted succulents and plants

Adding potted plants, trees, and succulents is an easy way to bring your outdoor space to life with color and texture. When selecting plants, opt for low-maintenance, drought-resistant varieties that can withstand your climate and the elements.

Succulents like sedum, echeveria, aloe, and agave are great choices as they don't require much watering once established. Their sculptural shapes and fleshy leaves add visual interest. Position plant groupings in corners, along steps and walkways, or near seating areas. Greenery helps soften hard edges and makes spaces more inviting. Go for a variety of heights by incorporating small, medium, and large planters.
