Spruce Up Your Deck!

It’s patio weather again and we couldn’t be more stoked! If you’re anything like us, you probably enjoy barbecuing in your backyard and having drinks with friends while enjoying the outdoors. This is why we are excited to present some ideas on how to make your deck cozy and absolutely loveable.

Start with furniture.  Choose comfortable furniture and accent with lots of cushions. Go for neutral main cushion colours then accent in bold, statement colours.Deck Decorations.jpg

String lights.   They allow your deck time to spill into the evening and feel just as cozy. They are also decorative. So, if you have a gazebo, make sure to also sprinkle some lights on there.

Keep throws and blankets handy. Wrap yourself up with a throw during those cool night-time, deep conversations or contemplation.

As you can see in the image above, an outdoor rug can add some coziness to your space. Don’t shy away from adding a rug for an extra flare!

Your patio probably overlooks your backyard, but adding some greens to your patio gives it that extra touch. Flowers or small plants adds cuteness to the space and gives it a more cheerful and homier ambiance.

Want to kill two birds with one stone? Choose foliage that is beneficial. Certain types of plants are natural insect repellents. For example:

  • Marigolds repel mosquitoes and aphids
  • Basil repels houseflies and mosquitoes
  • Lavender repels moths, fleas, flies and mosquitoes
  • Lemongrass, lemon thyme, lemon balm, mint and rosemary repel mosquitoes

With a patio heater, you can enjoy outdoors even in the winter. So consider investing in one.


We hope that these ideas will help you create a deck or patio you can enjoy no matter what time of the year it is.
