Every time you walk out on your bland patio the previous owners did nothing with you wonder why you haven’t decorated yet.
There’s nowhere to sit, eat, or have a drink with your friends. The floor is still barren and your neighbors on both sides can see everything you do.
Wouldn’t it be great to have friends over and see them ooh and aww over your cozy patio? Or to be able to kick back with a good book and some hot tea under a covered patio while it’s raining?
And here’s some good news: you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a Pinterest-worthy patio.
With these patio decorating ideas at your side you can turn a dusty old porch into a palatial patio in no time.
Curtains are an easy way to add an intimate reading nook to your patio. If your neighbors’ place is a little too close for comfort curtains can give you instant privacy.
Try a curved shower curtain rod for creating private seating areas throughout your patio. Set 1 of these up with some throw pillows and a stack of good books to create a reading nook straight out of a home decor magazine.
Plants are a cheap way to add a ton of warmth to a patio. But what plants work best for the outdoors? Stick with hardy plants like ivies and succulents. They’re both low maintenance and can survive just about anything.
If you liked the added privacy of curtains, turn a section of lattice into a privacy screen by letting ivy grow all over it. Set them up on the sides of your patio to provide extra privacy.
If you really want your patio to be the place everyone wants to party, you have to have music. You don’t need an expensive built-in speaker system to entertain your guests though.
You can get Bluetooth speakers for under $20 at most electronic retailers. Get 1 for either side your patio to make a DIY budget surround sound system.
Nothing screams party patio like a bar cart. Set up all your favorite liquors, mixers, and glasses so you’re ready anytime you have guests over.
Whether you’re watching the rain by yourself with a Hot Toddy or having margarita night with the gang you’ll have all your favorite drink ingredients ready to go.
Don’t forget to add a few nonalcoholic options. Hot cocoa packets and a variety of teas are great to have around when it’s cold and rainy out.
Nothing ruins a patio cocktail party like flies and mosquitos. Patio screens are inexpensive and keep out the biggest problem of having food and drinks outdoors.
Citronella candles will help ward off the mosquitos that manage to sneak their way past the screen. Buy food trays that come with covers and throw a mosquito net over your bar cart when it’s not in use to keep out fruit flies.
Christmas lights aren’t just for the holidays anymore. They add the perfect amount of soft, easy on the eyes lighting.
Paper lanterns are another option for mood lighting on your patio. Try to avoid using too many candles for lighting since it’s easy for them to fall over when it gets windy outside.
A cheap metal firepit is easy to move around wherever you need it and makes for perfect s’ mores.
You won’t have to brave the wilderness the next time you want to roast some hot dogs and marshmallows over an open flame.
Keep all the comforts of home while adding the best parts of camping.
Need something to tie in your patio’s seating area? Try an outdoor area rug for an easy to clean splash of color and warmth.
An outdoor area rug makes your seating area feel like it’s indoors. Instead of looking like you just stuck some random dining set on your patio it’ll look like a complete dining room right on your porch.
Set it up just like your dining table inside. Bring out place settings, silverware, and glasses so you don’t have to make constant trips back inside the house to keep grabbing things.
Don’t want to bother keeping that outdoor area rug clean? No problem. Decals are big stickers you can put on just about anything.
They’re great as outdoor decorations for summer because you can just wipe any dirt and grime off. Tired of the look? Decals are much easier than paint to change out. You can even let the kids apply the next 1.
Nothing washes the stress of the day away like sinking into a hammock. Don’t know where you’d put one?
Don’t worry. You can get 1 with a stand so you can set it up anywhere you want. Drift off to sleep while the breeze gently rocks you to sleep.
Wanna take the comfort level up another notch? Put together an outdoor bed using weatherproof cushions.
You can use old pallets as a frame to keep your new outdoor bed from collecting moisture underneath it.
Now when you walk out on your patio, you’re not sure where to go to first.
Should you crack open a good book in your cozy reading nook or mix up a mojito while you watch the sunset.
Your friends are constantly asking to come over for lunch and dinner on your new patio. They keep asking you for patio decor ideas for their own homes. And you were able to do it all for under $1000.
