Making Your Patio Cover a Romantic Spot for Date Night



Spending a long overdue date night with your significant other doesn’t have to be a costly night out at an overpriced restaurant so crowded you feel rushed or so loud you can’t hear each other speak. Date Night at home on a budget is a simple way and cost-effective to enjoy quiet time with your loved one. With some simple tweaks to your outdoor space, you can transform your ordinary pergola, patio cover, or LifeRoom into a romantic spot to enjoy a meal and a glass of wine.

Set the Mood with The Perfect Lighting
Faint spot lighting shined upon a set table or twinkling fairy lights wrapped around your pergola trellis is an easy way to turn an outdoor space into the prime location for romantic dinner. To add a pop of color, hang unique paper lanterns in pink, white and red. No electricity? No problem. Many manufacturers make battery-operated string and paper lantern lights to bring glow to any space. If you’re looking for a more traditional method of lighting up the night, try dripless or even flameless taper candles (some even come with a flickering effect that give the battery-operated candles a realistic look).

A Little Privacy, Please?

If you are a LifeRoom owner, you’ll know how priceless privacy is. With LifeRoom’s motorized retractable screens, privacy is as easy as a 1… 2… 3… However, if your outdoor space is missing privacy at a touch of a button but you are still looking for a simple and cost-efficient way to add temporary privacy for your romantic Valentine’s Day backyard dinner, sheer outdoor curtains is the next best option. Available at any home goods store, outdoor curtains are easy to install and while provide privacy, also give the space a romantic look.

Focus on the Tablescape
Whether you are decorating your table for two or ten, setting the table with Valentine’s-themed decor is simple and can be done on a dime. Your tablescape can be colorful, fun and full of whimsy or elegant and full of fancy. Whatever you decide, the pop of color a tablescape brings is an easy way to make the table the focal point of the room so you don’t have to transform the rest of the space for a single night.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services.
