There’s a mistaken notion that building a beautiful patio needs thousands of dollars in investment. Well, you can pay huge money to get yourself a nice porch, that’s for sure. But money is not always a requirement.
There are many inexpensive ways to spruce up your outdoors, such as throwing in a nice rug or adding some fairy lights to warm up the night.
And if you’re looking for a more substantial makeover, you have a lot of options as well. Check out our suggestions below.
Add a deck
Pallets are an affordable way to build decks. You can buy them used for cheap from Craigslist or delivery docks. And you can customise them however you want. They’re also a great material for building outdoor furniture, such as tables, benches, and chairs.
Add a lounge area
Buy an inexpensive daybed, dress it up in pretty sheets, and throw in several cushions and pillows in a comfy way to enjoy the outdoors. You can also set up a do-it-yourself cabana with some pipes, wood, and curtains to drape around the daybed.
Sometimes, the best way to spruce up your patio doesn’t involve a lot of building and hammering about. You only need the help of colourful flowering plants to breathe new life. Fragrant vines, such as wisteria, are a great place to start, and there is a variety of flora you can choose from for the summer and spring months.
The possibilities are endless if you want to update an outdated patio design. You only need to jump outside the box to see what you can do.
