Tips for Porch, Patio, and Deck Decorating

Summer is not quite here yet, but preparing for it beforehand is a good idea, especially when discussing outdoor spaces. Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows has the best tips and design decorating pointers worth incorporating into your porch, patio, or deck. These decorating ideas will help you create an outdoor living space that welcomes relaxing, entertaining, dining, and enjoying life outdoors.

Start with a Color Scheme

What is the purpose of your outdoor space? Is it for entertaining guests or more casual for family activities? Consider a scheme that consists of three colors: a dominant, secondary, and accent color. Simplifying the materials and colors of your outdoor space can beautifully complement the architecture of your home. It is good to replicate your porch, deck, or patio, colors, and design, with a dominant tone as the primary hue and two additional colors in supporting roles, such as outdoor pillows, planters, and other accessories.


Outdoor Furniture

Use as much seating as comfortably fits in your space, with sofas and chairs facing each other, possibly arranged around a coffee table. Accent your pieces with decorative pillows, cozy throw blankets, and other decor. Pillows and cushions can help reiterate your deck’s decorating scheme and can be easily swapped for a fresh look each season. Choose furniture that will be appropriate for your guests. You will not want expensive fabrics or anything fragile if it is a family space. Make sure all deck decor and furniture are designed for outdoor use so they can withstand nature’s elements.


Displaying Nature

Plants bring so much life and beauty to your outdoor space. Try a variety of plants and flowers to mimic your backyard landscape. Choose plants that will remain relatively small, so they don’t overtake your deck. Start with classy pots and add visual appeal with a gorgeous hanging garden of all sizes, shapes, and materials found at  Home Depot. Using a variety of colors in similar hues will give each pot depth and character. 


Make a Statement with Lighting

Accentuate a deck or patio with eye-catching decor. Good lighting will help you enjoy your patio after the sun goes down. In place of permanent fixtures, colorful lanterns made of weather-resistant nylon are a stylish way to illuminate your landscape along with hanging string lights. String lights cast a soft, cozy glow that can make warm nights spent outside even more enjoyable. 


Elevate Your Outdoor Living Space

Bring the tranquil sounds of water to your deck with a water feature, such as a fountain powered by a recirculating pump. Or create a soothing water garden in a pot or nearby raised bed. Install a deck fire pit for those cooler summer nights, but always consider safety first, especially around children. Certified professionals can install a gas or wood-burning fire pit. Still, you need to check the manufacturer requirements and your city’s code before putting any type of fire pit on your porch, deck, or patio.
