Patio season is upon us! It’s time to bust out your barbeque set, get your sangria jugs out of the cupboard, and prepare for some fun in the sun. There’s nothing better than enjoying your patio in all its glory.
But let’s face it, it’s been a long winter and most patios are could use some sprucing up. Get ready to roll up your sleeves because today’s blog is a 101 guide on everything you need to get your patio ready for spring.
10 Patio Essentials for Spring
1. New Cushions
Mother nature can take a real toll on outdoor furniture and cushions get the brunt of her wrath. If you left your cushions outside one too many times during a downpour, it’s time to replace them. New cushions are also a super easy way to incorporate a different colour scheme into your furniture and freshen up the overall look of your patio!
2. A Comfy Throw
Something as simple as a throw can add charm to a patio and make it appear more inviting. Who doesn’t want to curl up on an outdoor sofa with a good book and a hot cuppa when they see a comfy looking throw strewn over it?
3. Glistening Lights
Adding some string lights to your patio can completely change the look of the space once the sun goes down. String lights help you to better see your friends smiling faces late into the night and they look magical against a starry sky. You definitely don’t want to miss out on the cozy feels that come from glistening lights!
4. Outdoor Carpets
A carpet is a great addition to any covered patio. It helps to separate the sitting area from the rest of the patio and make it feel like a more intimate second living room of sorts. If you like to go barefoot on your patio a carpet can also serve as a soft place to put your feet and warm your toes.
5. Serving Basket
If you’re planning on doing a lot of hosting this spring, a serving basket will really come in handy. This functional item will also look super cute amongst all your other patio furniture. Woven serving baskets are the way to go this season!
6. Playful Planters
Add some personality to your patio by investing in a few playful planters! Planters come in all shapes, sizes, and forms, and they are functional since they help plants flourish. Planters that are in the shape of an animal can serve as a great conversation piece.
7. Sunbrella Umbrellas
Sunbrella umbrellas are pretty much a must-have for any patio. They shield you and your friends from the scorching sun and also function as a great decorative piece. Sunbrellas come in a variety of fun colours that can make your patio look more lively!
8. Fresh Pillows
Opting to change out the pillows on your patio is an easy way to give it a fresh new look. Whether you’re going for a more modern, minimalist, rustic, or bohemian style this season, adding a few throw pillows in can help you achieve the look you’re going for.
9. Lovely Lanterns
There are some lovely lanterns floating around out there that are specifically designed for patios. Lanterns are a great way to add some extra lighting to your patio space and they give your patio a romantic feel when you put candles in them. There’s nothing quite like a candlelit dinner!
10. Funky Tablecloths
Get a few funky tablecloths so that you can change up the look of your patio depending on the occasion. Tablecloths are also a great protective layer that will prevent potentially disastrous spills from ruining valuable tables.
By using this list to get your patio ready for spring, there’s no doubt you’ll be hosting some great hangouts this season!
