Get Ready For Summer With These Easy Outdoor Updates

Outdoor season is upon us, which means it’s time to prepare your space for a time full of fun and festivities. A few small changes can have a big impact on your entertaining and overall enjoyment, so let’s take a look at some easy outdoor updates to help you take advantage of your backyard, patio, deck, or yard (in style) all summer long!

SOFTEN UP Your Seating

Adding cushions or pillows to outdoor furniture will bring some much-needed softness (and make you a lot more comfortable while lounging.) Whether it’s a dining chair cushion or a grouping on an armchair, it’s a great way to introduce some color and texture to a patio that’s looking a little plain. Just make sure you’re purchasing pillows in outdoor-friendly fabrics, which will stand up to the elements and resist fading.

LIGHT UP Your Exterior

Take advantage of the outdoors anytime by shedding some light on your backyard. Hanging a set of string lights over a dining or seating area is a lovely way to cast a warm glow (just make sure they’re a warm white- no one wants to be blinded while trying relax!) And if you can’t suspend lights overhead, you can always drape them over a railing or line the perimeter of a door or window.

WARM UP With A Firepit

Even a warm summer night can get a little chilly when the sun goes down. So keep things feeling nice and toasty with a firepit. While a built-in gas firepit would be a total dream, for a more budget-friendly option, try a freestanding propane or wood-burning model (that you can also store away when not in use). And besides keeping you warm, you can also toast some marshmallows too!

SPRUCE UP Your Dining Area

If you’re using a plastic patio table or simply don’t have a proper outdoor dining area at all, now’s the time to change that. A more substantial outdoor dining set (made of powder-coated metal or durable teak) is a great investment in your outdoor entertaining for years and years to come. You can also find tables that will expand to fit up to 12 people, or intimate bistro sets made for a cozy dinner for two.
