You’ve probably made the most of the warmer months by spending quality time with friends and family on your backyard deck. It is great to have a functional outdoor space for all your summer activities like barbecues and dinner get-togethers, but does it complement your home’s exterior in aesthetic appeal? Remember that decks can also be a decorative element that adds to the overall value of homes.
Today, we take a look at some ideas that will help enhance the beauty of your deck this summer.
1. Make the Colors Stand Out
Choosing colors for an exterior feature of your home can be quite a challenge. You want to strike the balance between giving it a new look and making sure it doesn’t look out of place against the elements of your exterior. Sticking to a single color scheme for your deck ensures a cohesive appearance, but see to it that it complements the existing hues of your windows, entry doors, siding and roofing.
2. Use What You Have
Using your chosen color scheme as the basis, start rummaging through your closet for items that you can incorporate into your deck decoration. It’s a more cost-effective move to make instead of buying new decor that will end up taking up space in your storage once it’s time to remove them. For example, an old scarf that goes with your deck’s color palette can be used.
3. Decorate Your Seating
Extend your living room’s cozy and homey vibe to your deck by adding a couple of throw pillows for your seating area. Blankets can also be included within easy reach when you decide to hang out with friends during summer evenings.
