Often, when people think about their yard, they think of it in one of two ways, either it is unusable space or it is usable. If it is unusable, it is likely full of weeds, overgrown grass, broken patio stones or maybe doesn’t even have sod laid. If this is the case then there a lot for you to do before worrying about brightening up your space. If you have usable space but are unsure as to how to bring new life to it, then this article is for you.
A usable outdoor living space is a great thing and something that many people long to have. But how can you breathe new life into your outdoor living space? How can you brighten it up and make it an enjoyable place to spend your time? Here are some great ways to brighten up your outdoor living space.
Make it Comfortable
For a fun and affordable option, try adding a few colourful throw cushions or throws to your patio set. A vibrant pop of orange, blue or pink can add a whole new level of comfort and personality to your space. A great tip is to continue with the colours that you have flowing throughout your indoor space to your outdoor space. This will help extend the feel of your living space to your outside.
Never Underestimate the Importance of Lighting
Odds are if you are thinking about brightening up your outdoor space you are hoping to use it throughout the day and into the evenings. This means you will want stylish, accessible and affordable lighting. Some great options include hanging twinkle lights around your patio, hanging bulb lights (both twinkle and bulb lights can be purchased in a variety of colours) or installing solar lights throughout the yard.
The Table Settings
Who doesn’t love having friends and family over for a BBQ? Why not use your table settings as a way to brighten up your yard and outdoor space? Invest in some colourful placemats, dishes, and cutlery and see how much fun it adds to your patio. You can either buy everything the same colour or mix it up. Perhaps the best part about this is that much of this can be purchased for at a relatively low cost, which gives you the option of buying different designs and colours for different vents, adding not only colour but variety to your space.
