The first step in your outdoor decorating project is to take a photo of the front of your house. This gives you the opportunity to look at your front yard objectively. Take the picture from the curb. Does your door stand out or blend in? Your front door is your focal point, so it should stand out. It directs your visitors and tells them where to enter your home. You can accent your front door by color and/or pottery flanking each side.
Outdoor decorating involves different challenges. The most important is dealing with materials that will encounter the outdoor elements. Sun, wind and rain have an effect on outdoor furnishings, and this needs to be taken in consideration when purchasing furniture, accessories, and outdoor art decor.
Keep in mind quality has a price, but you will receive longer wear and enjoyment by spending a little more.
If you have a gazebo or patio with a trellis, use it as part of your outdoor decorations. You can easily slip in strands of holiday lighting in the trellis and you will get an intimate place to sit in the evenings. The trellis also acts as a great backdrop to your outdoor holiday decorating. Yes, the outdoor area should not be forgotten when you are decorating your home for Halloween, Christmas or Thanksgiving. This will make these areas even more exciting.
If space permits, a sitting area in your front yard will be a good addition. You can place a nice outdoor bench or maybe a pair of rocking chairs matched with a fitting beverage table. You may also want to add a couple of relaxing fabric pillows in your sitting area for comfort. Another option is to add some hanging plants for a more refreshing ambience.
You can also check out decor outdoor accessories at discount department stores in your area like Kmart. There is a number of lawn and patio furniture at the store, as well as rugs and screenings for your porch that will make your outdoor dining space just as cozy as your indoor one. You can also find portraits that you can hang in outdoor areas that are water and weather-proof, which will make your decor outdoor especially creative.
