Outdoor Living Area Ideas
When you want your outdoor living area to look as good as the inside, it’s time to start spicing it up with one or all of these simple and affordable ideas.
Cushions Work Wonders
Scatter cushions are not just for inside, they look fantastic outdoors too! Try recovering your old cushions by sewing up some covers in funky patterned fabric, such as stripes or chevrons.
If sewing is not your thing, using a large outdoor fabric as a throw rug over furniture works well too and can be gun stapled attached quickly if a more permanent style is desired.
Fold Up Chairs
Fold up or butterfly style chairs work well in outdoor areas where there is not much space. Choose bright colours or attach a suitable trim to the chairs for added pizazz.
Colourful Place Mats
Or how about some fabric place mats for adding that colour pop to your table. Spills are not a problem as they simply go in the washing machine when the meal is over.
A few well placed pot plants can make all the difference. Choosing nice pots is a good idea as well as low maintenance plants if you’re not an avid gardener. If you are, check out living walls.
A & A Plastic Strip Curtains
It’s amazing how the ideas above can make such a difference to the look and feel of your outdoor living area. You just need to look around for inspiration and go for it.
If you know someone who has a flair for making things look just right, don’t be afraid to ask them how they would spruce up your outdoor area.
