Outdoor decorating not only improves the value of your home but will also give you up to a 100% return on your investment. With just a few tips and ideas you can be on your way to enhancing your home's curb appeal. Begin with a well thought out plan that includes landscaping, lighting, a focal point, an outdoor feature, pottery and possibly a sitting area. By thinking things out before you make purchases you can avoid costly mistakes.
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.
Cooking and dining outdoors is part of the summer experience for many individuals. However, cold weather, rain and other outdoor obstacles can often make it difficult to enjoy outdoor living whenever the mood strikes. Instead, why not create an indoor picnic area that can be enjoyed year-round? All you'll need is a patio or picnic table, and an area to create your indoor "outdoor" environment. A corner of your basement, garden room, indoor patio or breezeway could be just the place to create a picnic-like dining area.
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.
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 decor lighting is one way that a person can begin to design their patio and garden decor. All different types of outdoor lighting can be found. A person can go to their local Wal-Mart or Lowe's and find a variety of outdoor decor lighting.
