5 Simple Ways to Update Your Patio for Spring 2020

What’s a better way to get in the 2020 Spring feels than a patio refresh? We’ve curated 5 easy and simple ideas to start your update.

Pillows, Rugs, and Cushions

Outdoor pillows, rugs, and cushions are a great way to incorporate accent colors and give your space personality. Like your indoor spaces, pillows and rugs can change the look of your patio, and they’re a quick, inexpensive update. If you’re cushions look sun damaged or have tears updating them can give your space a whole new, clean feel. Outdoor pillows, rugs, and cushions are made to withstand the weather and dirt, which is why some people like to use outdoor rugs in kitchens and laundry rooms.

Make a cozy area

Long days and warmer nights are perfect for entertaining or relaxing in the comfort of your own patio, which is why we love that cozy areas are trending in 2020. Whether you’re hosting or going solo for the night, creating a cozy area (inside or outside of your patio area) can make your time outside more enjoyable. A few ways to do this is to add comfortable seating, greenery, or candles and lanterns. Dining sets add the perfect spot to grab a drink or a coffee and chat with a friend or read a book by yourself, while a small outdoor sofa or sectional can seat more people. Adding plants can add color, inspiration, and privacy to your cozy space. While candles and lanterns can also make your area seem more intimate and relaxing. Check our cozy area inspiration below:

A grilling station

Good parties start with good food. A grilling station near or on your patio is an excellent way to stay close to your company while cooking up your best BBQ and serving drinks. Grilling stations can be as simple as your grill, cooking table, and a cooler or as fancy as a custom-built in kitchen with granite counter tops. Check out this one below:
