10 Steps To Impressive Outdoor Decor 

As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor space, so let’s review how to achieve a winning outdoor area.

1. Go For A Modern Look 

If you’re looking for a modern and stylish way to decorate, consider using outdoor furniture with clean lines and geometric shapes. This will create a fresh aesthetic that ages well year after year. 

2. Make A Statement

If you want your outdoor space to really stand out, go for furniture in bold and bright colours. You can’t go wrong with a vibrant hue like yellow or orange. These colours are enticing and contribute to a fun summer vibe. 

Jewel tones such as green or blue are also popular and when paired with crisp white can deliver a calming and fresh space that works well in all seasons. 

3. Create A Focal Point 

When it comes to decorating your outdoor space, one of the most important things is to create a focal point. This can be achieved by choosing an eye-catching piece of furniture to draw attention and create interest. 

A great way to do this is to choose a piece in a bold colour or an unusual shape. Once you have done this, you can then select the remainder of your furniture to complement this focal point. 

4. Mix And Match For A Unique Look

One of the best ways to create an interesting and unique outdoor space is to mix and match different pieces of furniture. This can be done by combining different styles, colours, and materials.

Contrast is an effective design technique, but can be hard to execute. We recommend limiting yourself to three complementary styles/colours or patterns and mixing with neutrals to create a connection. 

5. Add A Touch Of Nature

Adding plants and flowers is a great way to add a touch of nature to your outdoor space. This can help create a more inviting and relaxed atmosphere. A profusion of greenery can also help your outdoor living area to feel cooler during the warmer months. 

6. Add Lighting For Ambiance

If you want to create a soft, calming ambience, consider adding some lighting to your outdoor space. Candles, string lights, or lanterns are all great options and can help to create a romantic or festive feeling space also. 

7. Opt For Comfort

One of the most important things to consider when choosing outdoor furniture is comfort. After all, you want your outdoor space to be a place where you can relax and enjoy yourself. Wrought iron furniture looks fantastic, but can be less comfortable than a wicker or wooden option so choose carefully. 

Never focus solely on aesthetics, opt for furniture that is comfortable and inviting. We suggest including a cosy sofa or chair in your space with a coffee table nearby for easy relaxation. 

8. Accessorise 

Adding cushions and pillows to your outdoor furniture can help make it more comfortable and stylish. This is also one of the quickest and easiest ways to add colour, texture and patterns to your space.

Accessories are also easily changed out to suit a change in seasons or when a refresh is desired. 

9. Use Rugs To Define Areas

If you have a large outdoor space, you can use rugs to define different areas. This can be a great way to create an intimate outdoor seating area or a separate outdoor dining area. Add further definition through the use of a small side table or greenery where desired. 

10. Keep It Simple 

Sometimes less is more, and this is definitely the case when it comes to decorating with outdoor furniture. 

A few simple and elegant pieces can go a long way in creating a stylish and inviting space. Avoid mixing too many elements as this will cause the area to appear smaller and more cluttered.
