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.

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use. Research has shown that because of its lightweight, soft, and extremely durable weave, Olefin does not fade and is sure to last.
