Lifestyle| | By Jason Owen
If you have an outdoor space that is in need of some improvement, we’ve got four simple tips from Lowe’s Home Improvement that will really give your outdoor space a welcoming vibe.
It’s amazing that such simple things can make such a huge difference. Check out the tips and watch the video below!
First off, take your boring cement patio flooring to a whole new level of elegance. While you can choose a variety of options, Lowe’s checked pattern looks glorious at sunset.
Relaxing in your backyard only works if you have some comfortable furniture to lounge in. So, ditch those stuffy fold-out chairs and get yourself something worthy of a wine and cheese party. Keep in mind your climate and precipitation. If you get a lot of rain or don’t have room in the garage for storage through the winter, you don’t want furniture that is large and difficult to move.
You might have a beautiful lawn to look over while in your backyard, but the addition of decorative plants and/or flowers is sure to make your little patio getaway feel that much more like it’s far away from it all.
Day or night, you’ll want to enjoy your backyard. Stringing lights around a tree trunk or draping them between trees will add elegant luster to your patio. If you’re in an area prone to bugs (especially mosquitoes) citronella tiki torches are a great way to keep the pests away and provide light.
