Just as we do with clothing and home decoration, we want our outdoor spaces to look modern and current. A dated patio set just doesn’t look as appealing as that sleek conversation set we see every time we’re at the home and garden centre.
If your backyard could use a makeover, buying a new outdoor furniture set is the first step. The second is decorating your deck or garden with the right accessories to make it stand out and make the whole area look fresh and new. Whether you’re doing a complete overhaul or you just need to replace a few pieces, sticking with these top trends for 2018 is the way to go:
- Mixed prints
Gone are the days of matchy-matchy sets and accessories where everything in your backyard must coordinate. Today, the most vibrant spaces are mixed with a kaleidoscope of colours and prints. The secret to success with this look is to start with a good foundation. Your patio furniture should be neutral, like black, brown, or cream so that it looks good with anything you pair it with. Then add prints and bright pops of colour in your rugs, pillows, and even the cushions on your chairs and conversation sets. The result is fun, cheerful, and very trendy.
- Fire tables
One of the coolest accessories to hit the outdoor market in a long time are firetables. You’ll love having one in your yard for the warmth it generates, but mostly for the beauty it adds to your space. Adding a firetable is an easy way to modernize your entire outdoor area.
- Patio furniture
Of course, your patio furniture is one of the most important elements in following the outdoor decorating trends. Look for clean lines in your dining sets, sofas, armchairs, and coffee table and look for trendy elements like wood patio furniture or wicker – whether real or in plastic, which is having a comeback.
- Unique Planter Decor
Accentuate your backyard patio sets with beautiful plants and flowers. Gone are the days of traditional pots and arrangements. Now you should look for unique outdoor pots and planters, and one-of-a-kind arrangements using unusual pairings, such as rosemary and petunias in the same pot, or decorative grasses alternating between a row of boxwoods.
