Tips for Brightening Your Outdoor Space

Summer time for many means taking advantage of the outdoor space that your home offers. Although the changing of seasons may also mean that your outdoor space has been neglected and could use a refresher. Today we’re discussing simple and exciting tips to freshen up your backyard, patio or front porch. Many people often make the mistake of believing that the only way to make a space feel new is through costly renovations. We’re debunking that myth, while offering tips to freshen up your outdoor space, and your Monday!

Usually, the most effective way to improve the feel of an area can be done through minor changes. Here are some numerous small investments that can be done to update your yard just in time for those long summer nights. Your patio or front porch may constitute your outdoor space, but there are still countless ways to make a small area feel like new. Consider purchasing a bright new rug, or colorful pillows to add a pop. Weather-proof decor is a great option for the durability it offers. In addition, adopt a colorful new plant or two to add some new life to an area. They bring vibrance while also feeling appropriate for the summer season. While this may not always be in your space, new glassware can be another great addition when wanting to increase use of an area. A new pitcher along with glasses will make freshly squeezed lemonade over ice even better.

Colorful lanterns are a wonderful option for bringing vibrance to your yard. They can be filled with citronella candles to ward off pesky mosquitos, or even electric candles to last throughout the season. Try hanging them from a tree in the yard, or even resting them on a coffee or side table. Even adding just a touch of color can help you achieve your dream outdoor space!
