Brighten up your patio with these tips and products
3 Ways to create the perfect outdoor living space Aaron Jarosz, The Home Depot, Senior Merchant, Seasonal, tells you how
1 BE YOUR OWN WEATHER SPECIALIST
>> keep climate in mind when choosing outdoor furniture. If you live in a windy area, select heavier furniture; if you experience regular rainfall, look for aluminum furniture with increased corrosion resistance. To lengthen the life of outdoor pieces, store patio furniture when the weather isn’t in your favour.
2 SET THE MOOD
>> Lighting is key in any space– indoors or out. Solar powered lights are a great option and help save on energy bills. Plus installation is easy as there is no
wiring or plugs to worry about.
3 CREATE A SPACE WITH A PURPOSE
>> How you plan on using your outdoor space will determine furniture requirements. Do you want to host parties, relax, or create a children’s play area? With the wide selection of outdoor furniture, you can get creative: replace chairs with recliners, loungers or even hammocks. Decorative accents are also essential! Include colourful pillows or outdoor rugs to brighten up your space.
