1. PAINT YOUR FURNITURE

Never under-estimate the power of paint. Have neutral colored furniture? Try a bright color like lime green or pink. Have bright colored furniture? Try a neutral like black or white. Going from neutral to bold or visa versa will really change the look of your space.

Check out how I updated these lime green chairs for less than $20 here!

2. SWAP OUT THE PILLOWS

Changing out the pillows in your outdoor space is a really easy way to change the look. I love to use bright, fun, patterned pillows on my deck, because the style is a bit playful, but even new neutral ones will make it feel like a new space to you. I got the ones for my outdoor dining table for just $1/each at IKEA – which is nice because you don’t have to worry about them as much. Also, outdoor pillows typically go on clearance in the fall, so you can grab a new round of them each year for super cheap!

3. ADD AN OUTDOOR RUG

Outdoor rugs are one of my absolute favorite things. There’s something about the fact that it makes the outdoor space feel like a true extension of my home, rather than a separate place. It also adds comfort (encouraging you to remove your shoes and stay awhile), and depending on the rug you get, can add a ton of character. If most of your decor is neutral, try going bold with your rug.

4. REARRANGE THE LAYOUT

One thing we did a few times last summer was try different layouts for our outdoor furniture. Try swapping your dining space with your seating area or turn your seating area on an angle.

 

5. ADD GREENERY

Flower containers or large plants are a great way to freshen up a space. Try a hanging plant, a pot of colorful flowers or a small tree!

Most importantly, have fun with it! I DARE you to try something new. Trust me – you won’t regret it. 😉
