1. Patio or Deck

Both decks and patios are great choices for outdoor living! Consider adding one based on what fits your budget and space to use with your friends and family.

  1. Add a Pergola

This slatted structure is a beautiful way to provide partial shade to your patio, and can be outfitted with lights, a ceiling fan and sound system.

  1. Create an Outdoor Kitchen

Amenities like a grill, sink, mini-fridge or freezer can level up any family barbeque.

  1. Cozy up by the Fire

Gas-powered fire tables offer an intimate space to enjoy food or drinks, while fire pits establish backyard bonfire vibes.

  1. Choose the Right Lights

Edison bulb string lights offer a timeless look that presents a warm, comforting glow. Hanging them also optimizes space on smaller decks or balconies!

  1. Plant a Garden

Gardens are beautiful to look at and fun for the whole family. No room for a full-sized garden? Create a smaller one for herbs on your deck or balcony.

  1. Dress up Plain Walls

Cover empty walls with a DIY vertical planter or outdoor art piece. Consider leaning a lattice trellis against the wall and covering it with plants.

  1. Privacy Hedges

Need some more privacy? Use greenery as a natural divider by installing privacy hedges instead of an overbearing fence or wall.
