As the sun shines brighter and the days grow longer, it’s time to transform your patio into a tranquil retreat where you can unwind and entertain. With the right outdoor accents, you can easily elevate your patio to a new level. Here we’re sharing a few simple accessories that will breathe life into your outdoor space and the tips to add each piece into your deck or patio design. Get ready to make a statement and create the perfect atmosphere for those warm summer nights.

1. Plenty of Planters

Nothing adds vibrancy and a dose of nature to an outdoor space quite like planters. Whether you opt for minimalist ceramic pots or cool geometric designs, planters allow you to infuse your patio with lush greenery and colourful blooms. Choose plants that thrive in your climate and complement the look of your patio or deck. Experiment with varying heights and sizes to create depth and dimension. Place taller planters in the back and layer smaller ones in the front.

Brian’s Tip: For a dynamic and visually appealing arrangement, place planters in the corners of your patio either in groups of three or symmetrically with two at opposite sides. 

2. Versatile Accent Stool

Introducing a versatile accent stool to your patio can enhance both its functionality and style. This multi-purpose piece can double as a side table, providing a convenient spot to place drinks, snacks, or décor items. Opt for a weather-resistant material to ensure it withstands the elements. An accent stool adds a chic touch and can easily be moved around to suit your seating arrangement or storage needs.

3. Cozy Outdoor Heaters + Fire Pits

Extend the use of your patio beyond the summer season by adding an outdoor heater or wood or propane fire pit. These functional and aesthetically pleasing accents provide warmth on cooler evenings, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space in comfort. Arrange seating around the fire pit or outdoor heater to create a cozy gathering spot. Surround the area with comfortable chairs and blankets for a truly inviting setup.

Upgrade your patio seating with outdoor toss cushions that not only elevate the look of your outdoor furniture but also provide extra comfort and a pop of colour. Choose decorative accent cushions that are water-resistant to help withstand the elements. Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns and textures for a look that feels effortless. Incorporate colours and patterns that reflect your personal style.

5. Stylish Outdoor Sconces

Enhance the ambiance and functionality of your patio with stylish outdoor sconces. These wall-mounted fixtures provide focused lighting, making them perfect for illuminating seating areas or walkways. Choose sconces with a design that complements your patio décor, and opt for warm white light to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Proper placement of sconces can highlight architectural features and enhance the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space.
