Enhance your Outdoor Space with Budget-Friendly Decor Ideas


For some, time spent in your backyard is limited to only a few months out of the year. In North Eastern states such as New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, it’s safe to say that the only opportunity you have to enjoy your outdoor living space is between May and September. Because of this, over-spending on outdoor luxuries such as lounge chairs, table-top bars, and décor isn’t a top priority, and is often overlooked. We get it! However, you don’t have to settle for low-quality furniture and décor because of it. We compiled a list of our favorite outdoor furniture to give your outdoor space a design upgrade on a budget, so you don’t overextend and over-spend in preparation for this coming summer season.

MODERN FURNITURE WITH A SIMPLISTIC STYLE
Modern is in. This year’s trend yearns for sleek, simple and sharp lines with neutral and earth-toned colors. If this style is your “cup of tea”, this 7-piece Rattan Sofa Set from Wayfair is for you. Seating 7 of your closest friends and family members, this sofa holds weather resistant polyester cushions that are easy to clean and removable (if you wish to keep them in a shed when not in use). Best of all, this set comes with a matching table equipped with glass top for all the drinks, chips, and dips you can consume. The rattan wicker, also weather resistant, works with a variety of patio or gardenscapes to fit your individual home’s style. For only $589.99, how can you say “no”?

COASTAL FURNITURE WITH A NATURAL LOOK

Made from solid teak/acacia wood, this tabletop set is perfect to round out the casual, beachy look you may be going for. Not only is this set weather and water resistant, but the cushions are removable, allowing you to easily replace them with other options (think: seafoam green or palm-tree patterned cushions). Seating six, this set will last you for many years to come and are designed to create many lasting memories. At $709,99, this solid-wood set is a no-brainer.


FUTURISTIC AND INDUSTRIAL
Bring your friends and family to the future with a style that will be a conversation starter for any party or gathering. By Vivere, this Orbital Zero Gravity Lounger from Hayneedle just screams “futuristic” with it’s ergonomic, zero-gravity design and orbital structure. With maximum comfort in mind, this lounger is made of fade- and weather-resistant acrylic mesh seating that cradles your entire body while you relax in weightlessness.

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance.
