Easy Ways to Freshen Your Outdoor Living Spaces

Bring Your Patio or Deck to Life

Outdoor living spaces are fantastic for entertaining in warmer months. The perfect furniture freshens the look of your home, while new decks or patios give your outdoor spaces a facelift. Check out these tips for finding design elements that work for you.

Selecting Furniture for Your Outdoor Spaces

Begin revamping outdoor spaces by deciding how to use the area. Knowing what feel you want on your patio or deck will give your furniture search direction. Next, choose furniture that provides the desired level of comfort. Keep in mind whether the deck or patio is covered, and decide how much time you’re willing to invest in maintaining furniture.

Finally, weigh the costs and value. By investing in quality, you won’t need to replace furniture as frequently. You can always change the look of outdoor spaces with cushions, candles, new plants, and drapery without replacing furniture.

Caring for Your Outdoor Décor

If you choose aluminum or wrought iron pieces, clean them with water and mild soap. Avoid abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the finish and cause rusting. For teak furniture, moisten the surface with water and then apply a water-based teak cleaner. After soaking in for a few moments, brush it away and dry. Wicker furniture can be vacuumed and then cleaned with gentle soap and water.

Revamp for a Whole New Outdoor Living Space

If you want to go beyond furniture in revitalizing your outdoor living spaces, there are plenty of beautiful deck and patio options. Let our certified professionals walk you through the design process and deliver a tailor-made solution for your outdoor spaces.
