There are many ways to add some spark to your home design. You can change your interior design or even incorporate new home accessories and décor. But you don’t have to keep all of your favorite design ideas indoors. Adding outdoor décor items to your garden space, porch or yard is the perfect way to showcase your favorite home décor. With the right outdoors décor, you can increase your homes curb appeal and increase your home’s value. Use these garden décor ideas for some inspiration to creating the ultimate outdoor space.
One of the most common ways to add a touch of décor to your home’s exterior is by adding a few pots. Terra cotta and other neutral toned ceramics are commonly used to show off plantings and flowers. But pottery can be used in many other ways. Great outside home accessories like pottery can be just the thing to store outdoor items from view. From compost to garden hoses, pottery can be used to attractively store everyday outdoor items with ease and style.
When the sun begins to set and your porch, patio or deck is where you want to be, candles can really help to set off the mood. Unlike bright and direct porch lighting, it’s subtle enough to keep things mellow, but bright enough to still allow you to see when it’s dark. Candles are the perfect table décor for your deck and create an ambience even in the daytime when placed in attractive candle holders. Best of all, some candles are made to distract or repel mosquitos and other biting flies. Citronella candles smell nice to humans, but smell awful to mosquitos.
What outdoor space is complete without the right furniture’s and accessories? It’s a good idea to set up at least a table and a few patio chairs for guests who enter your yard, garden or porch. Outdoor furniture is also the perfect addition to any outdoor room. Couches, porch swings and love seats can all be bought in waterproof fabrics. With so many new outdoor furniture products coming out each day, it’s easy to find an affordable and long lasting set of outdoor furniture that’s perfect for your outdoor décor design.
When decks, patios, sidewalks and porches are covered with wood or concrete, they can be boring and bland at best. Dress up your outdoor space with a cool throw rug. Be sure to choose a throw rug that is suitable for outdoor use. Some natural fibers like cotton should be avoided. Hemp and jute are great alternative natural fibers that look fabulous and can last for years outdoors. Outdoor rugs can also be made from synthetic fibers that can last for a lifetime for the perfect outdoor home décor. [ Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 ]
