Spring Patio Refresh

Simple tips for a new look.

By Laura Leiva

Give your patio a simple spring refresh and enjoy the season. 

Entertain in Style

When the weather warms up and days get longer, there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting out on the patio enjoying fresh air and perhaps a cocktail (or two). Create a space out on the patio that allows you to entertain guests or just sit back and relax – a bar cart, serving glasses and a pitcher are just a few of the entertaining essentials.

Patio Door Refresh

On a budget? All you need is a can of paint and some new plants to give your patio a totally new look. Paint the patio door a new color or place plants on either side of the entryway to give the patio a zen, symmetrical look. Other decorative accents, such as lanterns, add a nice touch for any style.

Grow a Garden

Even with limited space, it’s easy to grow a garden for all those fragrant herbs and flowers. Hang or lean a wood pallet against a wall and use a hook to secure pots to the planks for a beautiful and economically vertical garden space – perfect even for small patios.

Add Color

One of the easiest ways to give your patio a simple spring refresh is add a pop of color to the space. Replace cushions on outdoor furniture with colorful or patterned ones, add an outdoor rug to the patio surface, or incorporate outdoor pillows to existing furniture. For a nice mix of color, incorporate neutral tones with bolder choices such as coral, teal, or honey.

Dine Al Fresco

What better way to dine than outside on the patio? Create a charming little spot to eat on the patio with a bistro set and two chairs – very reminiscent of European dining locations.

Whether you’re ready for a total refresh or need to spruce things up on a budget, you’ve got plenty of options to transform that outdoor space into a relaxing haven.
