From a party lover to a recluse, every homeowner should have a deck in their backyard, for there are plenty activities you can do in a deck such as reading books, relaxing, having a party and so on.
However, expensive maintenance makes people flinch. Today, I have some simple ideas that can give your outdoor living space a fresh new look without spending much money. Let’s all have a new cozy deck.
Decorate With Plants
Plants and flowers are always good choices, for they are inexpensive and take up plenty of the space. Meanwhile, the colorful and vibrant green can make your deck much more stylish and can even serve as a small garden.
Refresh outdoor furniture
As for seat cushions, you can just simply cover the old ones with new fabric in fresh, breezy prints. Remember to get the water-proof fabric. How about chair and table? The secondhand items are good choices for low budget.
Give Your Decking a New Color
A new color can totally transform your space. Here are some popular choices: a modern ambience with dark gray, a pretty pastel, the soft sage green, or bold colors as you like.
Add some decorations
Adding a bench can be an excellent addition to your backyard deck if you have a big family. Benches come in different kinds of shapes and sizes, which makes us to choose whatever stylish we want.
Lighting is also an easy and cheap way to freshen up your deck. String lights, in-stair or in-floor lighting, these decorative pieces can make your space shine. With light you can not only use your deck at night but also sense a vibrant feeling.
What’s more, if you afraid your deck may be kind of dull because of the wood, a beautiful rug can help. It can make your deck space much more cohesive and home-like.
Build a Patio Umbrella
A patio umbrella can be a decoration and the protection for your outdoor furniture at the same time. Most importantly, this high-quality umbrella is much cheaper than any deck cover.
So, a cozy backyard doesn’t have to be lavish and expensive. With one or some of the above backyard deck ideas, I’m sure you could get a nice, secure and beautiful deck for you to hang out, connect and engage.
