Your patio is part of your home. It’s another room that should be treated as an extension of your indoor rooms.
We’ve put together our list of five great ideas to help you create a stylish outdoor room that you’ll enjoy throughout the year.
Make It Comfortable
Crescent couches and large sectionals are rising to the forefront of outdoor furniture. Pieces such as the crescent couch are versatile, comfortable and provide an easy way for friends and family to mingle. Their curved shapes provide more options for arranging furniture on the patio. For extra comfort and an updated look, place one of our many fire tables in the center. Fire tables provide a bit of ambience and warmth during chilly spring night.
See in Green
Pantone named Greenery the Color of the Year for 2017, and all things natural are trending. Boost your patio with green décor, and go environmental with some new, eco-responsible furniture. Try one of our pieces from Lafuma, which limits its ecological footprint by using natural, versatile and sustainable materials such as wood fiber, natural resin and recycled plastic. Our C.R. Plastics Products are made from recycled plastic products that are water resistant and maintain their form in all weather conditions, so they don’t need to be stored indoors.
Accent with Accessories
Accent pillows, outdoor rugs and umbrellas show off your personality. Mix and match patterns to make a bold statement or incorporate cool tones for a soothing effect. Dine in style by combining glasses and plates in different colors to add visual interest to your table. Bonus tip: If you’re a Garden Club member, you can get 10% off most accessory purchases!
Decorate with Nature
Increase your patio’s appeal by adding container gardens and patio plants. Try combining vegetables and herbs with flowers for unusual and interesting plant combinations that can also help in a pinch when cooking outdoors.
Add Soothing Sound
The gentle sound of moving water provides peace and tranquility, and it goes hand in hand with the trending theme of nature. Select from any number of fountains to add just the right amount of ambiance. Best of all, this can be done with any size patio, big or small.
