Since there is a wide variety of outdoor decor available, choosing the perfect patio accessories comes down to your needs. Does your space have an awning, roof, or screened-in porch? If so, UV-protected fabrics and all-weather, heavy-duty materials may be less important for mats, pillows, and accents.
If your deck is open to the elements, heavyweight, waterproof furniture covers will extend the life of your furnishings by shielding them from sun, wind, and water. A storage ottoman, bench, or box offers a useful place to tuck away delicate outdoor decorations and garden accessories during harsh weather.
Add Some Comfort
A well-appointed patio extends the conveniences of home into your backyard. To make your space welcoming, bring in a little extra softness and warmth with outdoor decor. Lounging outside is more relaxing with a plush rug under your seating area and a pile of cushions on the porch swing. When the nights turn cold, a fire pit or heater makes a cozy gathering spot.
Choose Your Materials Wisely
While selecting quality materials is a priority for both indoor and outdoor decorations, it becomes even more vital when weather is a factor. Moisture, heat, and dirt can eat away at many types of paints, metals, and woods, so picking pieces designed for outside use offers the best return on your investment.
When buying a patio accessory, check that it features all-weather materials, such as resin wicker, teak, or aluminum. For fabric items, like poufs, search for removable, washable cases and covers to make cleaning simple. Colorfast fibers, quick-drying weave, and mildew resistance are the biggest factors in selecting a durable rug.
Create a Cohesive Style
Want to give your outdoor decor a put-together look? Combining patio accessories within a specific style makes the whole space work together. Pair pillows and rugs with nautical knots, waves, and seashells for a coastal vibe. On the other hand, an ornate metal fire pit with a classic wicker storage bench and floral cushions evokes traditional elegance.
