Homeowners know that owning an outdoor deck or patio is a point of pride. If you are a new owner of a deck or are looking for ways to mix things up, an easy way to get your deck looking great is to decorate it. If you’re not sure how to decorate your deck or patio, here are some starting ideas. 

One of the first things that you should do when looking to decorate is to choose a color theme. When choosing a color, consider colors that will compliment your house or any outdoor furniture that you might already have. If you are looking for warmer colors, get plants that will accent this such as flowers in reds, oranges or yellows. If you are going for more of a calming, subdued look, consider getting plants in cooler colors such as blues, whites, or gray. If you already have a lot of flowers or plants in your backyard, choose a color scheme that will compliment the plants that are already present. 

The furniture of a deck also goes a long way in the overall look and feel of your deck. The first thing to remember is to not overcrowd your deck. Make sure that whatever furniture you choose to have on your deck, there will still be enough room for people to walk around and stand. Dining tables are the most popular deck options but other options if space allows includes furniture such as an outdoor couch, a deck box that can be used for storage, or even a bar table for another seating option that can be enjoyed by your family and friends. 

There are also fun ways to add lights to your deck if you will be using the space once the sun goes down. For example, there are a number of different types of string lights you can use. Other options include hanging lanterns or even installing tiki torches around your patio for a more festive feel. If you are looking to create a more romantic space, consider placing candles in mason jars for a relaxing glow that is sure to set the mood. These are just a few ideas to consider when decorating your deck or patio
