If you've got a fun, bright personality let it shine through with the decor you pick for your garden, deck or yard. Pass up the neutrals and go for bold shades of orange, yellow or red. Select hanging accent pieces and other novelty decor to add bright colors and bold patterns. Complement these with flowering plants or large potted trees.
Before starting with your outdoor decorating project, take a photo first of your house's front view. This will give you the chance to look at your front yard in an objective manner. Get the picture form the curb and check if your door stands out or blends with your current outdoor decor. Your front door should stand out since it is your focal point. Your front door leads your visitors where to enter. A fitting color or a pottery placed on its both side can accent your front door.
Remember that outdoor decorating should extend into your backyard so you can maximize your outdoor living area while building functional spaces. Maintain a style or theme that perfectly blends with your home decor. With proper planning and perfect execution, you can have a very nice relaxation area, an outdoor kitchen area or even an entertainment area.
It is also important to ensure that your lighting fixtures enhance the appearance of the other features of your yard with the proper amount of light. Chrome features are best suited for large porches or decks, or driveways because they offer powerful lighting that covers a full spectrum. It is important that if you are using chrome lighting that you do not buy too many fixtures and create an unnecessary glare. It is best to start with one and determine how much of your exterior area that single light is capable of illuminating so that you can then verify how many more fixtures will be needed to light any surrounding exterior areas. Balancing the necessary amount of light is important. If you are using the chrome lighting features to light an entire outdoor patio used for entertaining purposes, then you need to ensure that there is enough light to avoid eye strain and headaches, but not so much that you create a glare and severe light pollution.
Another way to add pizazz is to use hanging baskets. Hanging baskets of flowers or green foliage will be a great accent that can be used on your porch or your deck. You can even hang these in your gazebo. They will add a touch of the garden to your area.
Even though you may remove your outdoor furnishings from outside, at the end of the summer season, and store them or winterize them, you will still experience some deterioration in fabrics, furniture, accessories and decorative yard art through each spring and summer season.
