Budget Friendly Tips for Refreshing Your Patio This Spring
Spring is getting closer and that means plenty of time grilling and relaxing outside. Sure, it sounds great — but it also sounds expensive. Patio furniture and other outdoor decor can get pricey, but at Mattress Firm, we know that you don't have to spend a fortune on products and furniture to upgrade your outdoor living spaces.
Here are just a few of Mattress Firm's favorite budget-friendly outdoor decorating tips that will inspire you to create an affordable patio space on a dime that won't take hours of your time. Make your neighbors green with envy from all the money that you're saving.
1. Pretty it up with a patio rug.
Want to cover up the unsightly ground of your outdoor space? A rug is a cost-effective option to add a soft touch of style to any deck, patio or porch. Looking to DIY-it? Treat a table cloth of your choosing with a weather-resistant spray to turn it into a fabulous outdoor rug.
2. Hang greenery.
Adding a few low-maintenance hanging plants is a great way to freshen up a space and create a mellow, relaxing vibe.
3. It's all in the details.
Sometimes it is the little touches that can make a room feel truly complete. Adding accents like lighting, planters and decorations from budget-friendly decor shops can really add character to your space.
4. Add cozy seating.
Outdoor seating can sometimes cost a pretty penny, but with a little resourcefulness, you can furnish your space without breaking the bank. Check out local garage or estate sales to find outdoor seating on the cheap. Then, try a coat of fresh paint and add some colorful throw pillows and you can bring an old piece back to life.
Creating a charming and relaxing outdoor space doesn't have to be expensive. While spending a fortune to transform a space may yield some great results, it's easy to stretch your dollar further with easy DIY-projects and budget-friendly decorating options to create the patio of your dreams.
