Is your backyard in need of a makeover? If so, not every backyard makeover has to be flashy and expensive. By revamping outdated furniture, or adding functional decorative pieces to your space, you can turn any outdoor area into an oasis that you and your house guests are sure to love. Here are a few simple ideas for updates that can easily transform your backyard and patio.

Get creative

When picking out furniture or other decorative pieces, choose items that are multipurpose and can make spending time outdoors a breeze. For example, consider chaises and coffee tables that open for extra, hidden storage. To eliminate clutter or expensive outdoor TVs, consider a pop-up projector screen for game days or movie nights.

Bring Color to the Backyard

A color scheme is just as important for your outdoor space as it is inside your home. Decide on a color palette and incorporate color accordingly. Maybe consider a  rustic feel with pops of bold colors in the form of throw pillows and rugs. Another way to incorporate color into your space is to choose brightly colored plants. A succulent centerpiece or hanging bougainvillea are great ways to liven up the space and tie in bright color.

Invest In Durable Elements

Avoid the stress of broken glass and ruining expensive furnishings and invest in durable outdoor staples. A pretty and practical set of outdoor dishware is always a wise investment. There are tons of unique melamine and plastic-ware options that are perfect for any occasion.

By making a few small updates and improvements, any backyard space can be transformed into a beautiful and lush area for entertaining guests. A backyard space is an extension of your home and should feel just as warm and inviting. For more backyard decorating ideas, check out Pinterest or other design blogs for unique ideas.
