If you’ve recently styled your patio with luxurious, high-quality furniture, the next step is to add some stylish décor. Outdoor patio décor is your chance to add your personal design style to your space. If you’re stuck on where to start, we have some helpful ideas to get you started.
Many homeowners don’t think to use a rug outdoors. There are rugs that are made specifically for use outside. An outdoor rug adds a luxe element to your outdoor space. The best part is that they come in many colors and patterns. Consider switching out your outdoor run depending on the season or current design trends. A rug is an easy way to add a pop of color and add the finishing touch to your patio.
End tables are a great way to easily add patio décor. Simply arrange an end table next to a chair or loveseat. Then choose your favorite décor to set on the table, like a potted plant or decorative lantern. An end table doesn’t always have to be used next to seating. It can also add interest and height to a blank space on your patio.
Umbrellas are an essential piece of patio décor in Arizona. They can be used to provide shade from the sun’s harmful rays during the summer. In addition to being functional, they’re also stylish. We suggest choosing your favorite fabric color or pattern and sticking with it throughout your patio. Arrange an umbrella or two next to your pool, near a seating area, or next to a fire pit area as a decorative touch.
There’s no better way to express your style than with decorative pillows. Your luxurious sectional or outdoor sofa might come with a few pillows, but if it doesn’t, you’ll definitely want to add some. Most designers recommend arranging a pillow or two at each end of the sofa or one on each chair.
Candles & Lighting
Bringing in extra lighting will add some great mood lighting. Consider stringing decorative bulb lights across the yard or using wax candles within decorative lanterns. Decorative lanterns can even be used to light a pathway. Arrange two or three in a group in various areas around the yard. Then, light them when you’re having guests over for a dinner party.
Using fresh flowers or greenery as a table centerpiece makes your patio feel professionally designed. Place one near the bar area and on an end table too. Flowers are one of those things that only a few people might notice, but they add so much to the space that it might look bare without them.
