Deck Out Your Deck with Spring Décor!

Posted in: | April 24, 2016

Spring is the season for all things new, so here are a few ideas for sprucing up your deck for the upcoming outdoor living period.

  1. Choose your Color Palette

A key to designing an outdoor living area is to approach it the same way you would for the interior of your home. With this in mind, the first decision is your color palette. Professional designers tend to use the 60-30-10 rule, which represents the primary, secondary and accent colors respectively, for a complete palette. This helps maintain balance and guide design decisions for the rest of the project.

  1. Comfy Outdoor Furniture

If you want your family and guests to use a space in the home, comfort is a necessity! Weatherproof, mildew- and rust-resistant chairs, sofas, lounges, and tables will usher your friends and family into your outdoor oasis making it a place to relax and congregate together for years to come.

  1. Add a Decorative Shade

Ever notice how curtains can completely alter the appearance of a room? The same happens outside! Shield your deck from the heat of the sun with outdoor curtains, umbrellas or a shade system that coordinates with your desired color palette. Hint: use your secondary color. This will add to the room’s visual appeal as well as extend the use of your patio throughout the season’s unpredictable weather.

  1. Strategic Outdoor Lighting

Incorporating proper lighting into your outdoors can bring the space to life at night! Whether lighting a walkway, patio or areas beyond the deck, the deliberate placement of lighting can keep your family gatherings and cookouts going well past sundown. After twilight, our Solar Spotlight with color changing lenses can change the setting’s appearance with the simple switch of the color-tinted filters.

  1. Accessorize!

Pillows, pottery, plants, oh my! These items and other outdoor accessories will add the finishing touches to make your deck welcoming for spring and summer entertaining. Selecting objects in the tones of your secondary and accent colors will tie together the space’s overall design aesthetic.
