5 Outdoor Decorating Tips

5 Outdoor Decorating Tips



Spring is​ here and​ decorating is​ in​ the air. We all love putting out fresh new looks in​ our homes this​ time of​ year, but have you​ thought recently about the outside? Often we're so busy decorating or​ redecorating inside, we forget to​ do the same outside as​ well. So here are a​ few quick and​ easy outdoor decorating tips that will help spruce up the curb appeal of​ your​ home:

1. Paint: you​ can paint the entire house and​ trim, or​ simply touch up the trim alone... either way will make a​ huge impact on​ how your​ home looks to​ the passing public.

2. Porch or​ Patio: if​ you​ already have a​ porch or​ patio, simply putting new furniture out can make a​ wonderful difference in​ the presentation​ of​ your​ home. Alternatively, you​ can simply buy new cushions or​ covers for​ your​ existing patio furniture. Other quick patio spruce ups can be as​ simple as​ putting out a​ few flowering potted plants, adding gnomes or​ statues, or​ putting a​ small water fountain​ into the space.

3. Walkways: Having walkways outside your​ home add a​ cozy, homey and​ inviting feel to​ the overall outdoor presentation. Just a​ straight concrete walkway can be spruced up by putting a​ bit of​ garden bed edging along each side... putting small solar walkway lights on​ each side... or​ planting colorful annual flowers such as​ petunias on​ each side. if​ you​ don't already have a​ walkway and​ want to​ create one, I think the prettiest are those made of​ stone. Add an​ extra decorative touch by making the walkway curve or​ wind a​ bit to​ your​ front door instead of​ leading straight there.

4. Yard ornaments: These can be as​ simple as​ a​ small bird house, a​ pole mounted outdoor lantern light, or​ even a​ wheelbarrow with flowers. Putting a​ little something extra in​ your​ yard defines you​ and​ your​ tastes, plus it​ gives your​ home a​ more unique personality that stands out from your​ neighbors.

5. Flowers, Plants, Vines & Bushes: Probably the most popular way to​ spruce up a​ yard quickly is​ to​ simply put out some pretty plants, bushes, vines and​ flowers. Annuals are great for​ adding dashes of​ color quickly, because you​ can usually buy them this​ time of​ year in​ bloom. to​ get continuous color and​ greenery, plant some perrenials too. Then once the annuals are starting to​ die out, you'll have something to​ replace them. You'll also have the added joy of​ seeing the perrenials sprout again​ for​ several years to​ come.
