I don’t know about you, but I’m SO excited for summer to finally be here! Nothing says “summer” like spending the evening on my back patio with family or friends and a glass of wine.
Here are a few tips to help you spruce up your patio for the summer and enjoy outdoor living a little more!
Splurge On New Seating:
If you’ve been roughing it in that old law chair, now might be time to splurge on a new patio set! Search overstock sites for patio sets that include chairs, benches, or even a table and umbrella set! Make sure to read the reviews so you get the most comfortable and functional furniture for your patio.
Consider A Fire Pit:
Nothing says “entertaining” like a good fire pit! We love gathering around the fire pit once the sun goes down and making smores - we still have a cool evening breeze living on the water, so it's perfect! In the wintertime, you can warm up by he patio with the fire pit and sip some hot chocolate! Home Depot, Target, and Walmart all have affordable fire pits with modern designs, or you can built one yourself - super easy! I built our fire pit in this home and our other home. if I can do it, you can do it (You Tube it)!
Boost The Lighting:
A dimly lit patio makes it hard to enjoy the space! Consider investing in patio lighting so you and your family can make the most of your space! Whether you decide to go with string lights or installing a more permanent option, I promise it’ll make a huge difference. I personally love the Hampton Bay LED string lights from Home Depot. They’re weather resistant, plastic bulbs, and LED’s so they last for years! These really set the evening mood by adding the perfect outdoor ambiance for entertaining or relaxing!
I hope these tips inspired you to make the most of your patio! I love making the most of every space in my home and the patio/outdoor area is one of our favorite spots.
