5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Patio on a Budget
  • Opening Intro -

    Outdoor living spaces can add more room to your home and help you enjoy the great outdoors in a variety of different ways.

-------------------------------------

If you have a patio, consider ways you can update and refresh that space without blowing a lot of money.

1. Host a Direct Sales Party

Many direct sales companies offer beautiful décor that you can use to freshen up a patio. If you don’t want to spend your entire pay check on decorating, you can host a direct sales party in order to get discounts and free products. PartyLite, an established candle and home décor company, has many trendy patio options and a great rewards program for party hosts. Other companies that provide products for use on the patio include Celebrating Home and Pampered Chef.

2. Get a New Grill

Who doesn’t enjoy grilling on the patio? If you don’t have a grill that can handle meal preparation, consider purchasing one to help you save money. Grilling outdoors helps keep utility bills under control during the summer months by keeping the heat out of the kitchen. To save even more money, purchase your grill toward the end of the summer when the best products are likely to be on sale.

3. Choose Quality Patio Covers

When sprucing up your outdoor living space, you will ultimately save money by choosing high-quality patio covers or awnings. These products protect your patio from the hot sun and from other weather, and quality items from companies such as Northern Comfort will keep you from having to replace coverings or awnings every time a storm comes along. Well-crafted patio coverings also resist sun damage and remain attractive for longer periods of time.

4. Repurpose Old Seating

Never underestimate the value of a facelift. Old furniture that still has its structural integrity can easily be given new life in a covered patio. Use furniture covers to refresh the look of your sofa, loveseat or comfy chair. Add colorful throw pillows to add interest or a touch of whimsy to the space.

5. Use Plants as Screens

Why spend money on expensive screens or ornate latticework when you can refresh your outdoor living space and get the necessary privacy by using live plants. Climbing vines will quickly grow up simple wire mesh walls to provide shade and a sense of tranquility. Palms and other large potted plants can be placed along the edge of a patio to create a screen. If you happen to be handy with a saw, hammer and nails, you can even use scrap wood to create an affordable frame over which you can train a variety of plant life.

A gorgeous patio is a great way to extend your home into the outdoors and be able to truly enjoy your property. Although some patio upgrades can be expensive, you don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to have a pleasant outdoor living area. Look for sales on the things you need, and repurpose products you already have. By taking these tips, you’ll have a beautiful patio in no time.
