Home Tips: Creating Your Outdoor Space

One of the things that we find great about home-ownership is the extra “room” that you get to add on to your house during the warm summer months: the deck or patio. Why not fully cease this extra space and make it your own? We’ve gathered some of the top trends in outdoor furnishings and decor to help style your space.

Accent Lighting

Every good patio space needs lighting done right. We love the look of these string lights and they are relatively easy to hang over your space. They provide just enough light when the sun goes down, without being overly bright and set the perfect mood for outdoor evening gatherings. Find them on Amazon here!

Mixed Material Furniture

Many home goods stores are featuring patio furniture this season with a blend of materials: teak, wicker, iron, aluminum and more. Don’t be afraid to go for a furniture set that plays with these materials to add more texture to your patio or deck space. The picture below is a set we love, available on Wayfair.com!

Pops of Color

You only get to use your outdoor space for a small chunk of the year, so why not keep it bright and fun! Choosing accent throw and floor pillows in vibrant patterns and colors brings some life to the space and they are also an easy way to switch up the vibe of your patio or deck each year on a budget.

Fire-Side Dining

One of the coolest trends we see emerging this season are outdoor dining sets with built in fire pits. These are the perfect touch for home-owners who love to entertain! For those willing to splurge, there are plenty of these dining sets at a higher budget, but here’s one we love for a more moderate price at Hayneedle.


Outdoor rugs aren’t exactly a new trend, but why stick for beige and boring when you can accent your outdoor “room” with a bold pattern and pop of color! Check out the rug below from Rugs USA!

We hope these ideas get you started on creating your perfect outdoor gathering space this season!
