After putting time into selecting the best furniture for your patio, you will want to pick out and install fun and stylish decorations. Here are some great add-on decorations for your patio.
Choosing exciting lighting design is one of the best ways to add on to your patio décor. There are so many options. Lanterns come in many styles and designs. They can be lit with electricity, batteries, oil or actual candles. They can be hung on hooks or dangled from wires that cross over your patio. You could have a rustic-looking antique lantern to round out your backyard getaway, or you could purchase a stainless steel contemporary marvel for your chic and modern patio.
Fire pits are not only beautiful, they are also a lot of fun. Adding on a fire pit to your patio means you can have outdoor cookouts, s’mores gatherings, or simple fire-gazing contemplation. Fire pits range from iron to steel to brick and can be movable or permanent. Generally they range from just under a hundred dollars to several hundred.
A simple, economical add on for lighting design is to string lights along your patio. You can use all-white Christmas lights so that they are appropriate year round. These are cheap to buy and easy to hang. If you have a gate around your patio, consider looping the lights around the perimeter.
Beautiful cushions are an easy and decorative way to add on to your outdoor furniture. Buy a set of matching cushions to tie the patio together, or buy several different cushions to add dynamism. If you do buy cushions with different patterns, try to keep them all within a three-color scheme.
Flowers are a popular addition to any patio. Purchase designer planters and place them on tables or along the perimeter of your patio to enhance any design.
