Here a few quick questions
to ask yourself
when designing your own
1. Will my space be used for entertaining, relaxing or dining?
2. Keep in mind the weather in your area & if your space is normally sunny, shady or windy?
3. Will you need an umbrella or larger forms of shelter?
Once you've answered
the basic questions
you have a good starting point.
Now you can concentrate on making the area private.
You can easily create a structure by adding walls. Anchoring a trellis in a large planter & hanging pots throughout with colorful flowers can give you a nice privacy wall. Attaching sheer fabric to porch overhangs is another great way to create privacy. Using reclaimed doors & windows propped up behind benches or against railings and fences is also a great cost effective way to make a space private.
Adding patio furniture is the next step. Purchasing new furniture can be expensive & if it's not in the budget you can get creative and shop flea markets and local garage sales. Re-purposing older furniture using a trendy paint color is a great way to add your own personal touches to the space. Slip covers for older pieces also gives them a fresh new look.
Adding lighting can be as easy as re-using your Christmas lights. String them through trellis's & trees. Add solar lights and candles. We offer a great outdoor candle here in the store, Rainlite. They are battery operated & can be set with a timer and turned on with a remote.
It's time to accessorize!
