String lights

Lighting is an element many homeowners overlook when setting up an outdoor living area, but it shouldn’t be! You don’t have to do electrical work or add fixtures. All you need to do is get outdoor string lights to create a soothing atmosphere for those spring evenings when you want to unwind and enjoy the outdoors.

Patterned outdoor rug

An outdoor rug adds warmth and makes your patio feel like an extension of your main living space. The striped pattern makes a big statement while the rug also defines the relaxed lounging area. Outdoor rugs are designed to withstand humidity and won’t fade under direct sunlight.

Al fresco dining area

A designated al fresco dining area is a must if you love outdoor entertaining. But you don’t have to spend a fortune! When outdoor dining sets are too pricey for your budget, a trip to your nearest thrift store is a brilliant idea. These mismatched chairs bring charming appeal and help create a cute spring-ready entertainment spot.

Potted plants

If you don’t have a large garden, potted plants add a touch of greenery to your outdoor living area. This lush fern brings a tropical feel. If you wish to add color, go for bloomy hydrangeas. Boxwood is ideal for setting a formal and elegant vibe. And if your outdoor space is shaded, try colorful petunias and pansies.
