Your porch and patio space is crucial to your home's decor. Not only does it send a clear image to visitors and passersby, it can help you plan out the decorations for the rest of your home if you are not sure where to start. Decorating for spring can be especially rewarding, as homeowners who decorate seasonally will find themselves reinvigorated with the raw potential their homes can offer. If you are ready to start decorating your home for the spring, it is strongly recommended for you to take a look at some of these porch decorating tips and see what will work best for your property.
Focus on the Brights and Greens
One of the most important aspects of the design process is to focus on colors. When you skillfully choose colors that complement the season, you invite new energy around your home. With springtime, bright, warm colors always set a welcoming tone, and implementing plenty of attractive green fixtures can be just what you need. One of the best ways to combine the two is to invest in a few floral arrangement around the patio, especially if you pride yourself on your green thumb and know you can keep the plants thriving.
Free Space Up
If your patio is cluttered and does not have much in the way of free space, it can be a good idea to free some space up. This may sound easier said than done in some situations, but getting a good energy flow around the patio can be just what you need to revitalize the area and bring in a fresh appearance for spring. The easiest way to do this is to actually repurpose some of the things that you may have lying around, especially if they fit the color scheme you have in mind for the area.
Let the Sunshine in
Find ways to focus on the sunlight in the patio. For many people, this may mean rearranging the existing fixtures and seeing where certain elements may work better when combined with the active lights and shadows on your property. Dark colors can be especially easy to work with if you have active sunlight against the area. Let the sunlight act as a backdrop and arrange fixtures in a way that will lead the eye from one section of the patio space to the next.
Play with Drapery
Billowing drapes are always a welcome addition to the patio. Not only can the right drapery lead the eye, but the natural flowing movements can be extremely soothing to see in the area, particularly when set with stronger centerpieces. Apply drapes to open areas and pay attention to the way the wind plays around on your property. You may be pleasantly surprised by some of the results, especially if you have not decorated with drapes in the past. Choose colors that will work with the central decor, and do not be afraid to experiment if you notice something catch your eye.
Invest in Some Centerpieces
What do you want your patio to say about you? Having a centerpiece on the property can be one of the most efficient ways for you to focus your decorative energy. A good fixture will not only tie the rest of the furnishings together, but it can also become a definite point of pride for the rest of the property. Tables, swings and tapestries are all attractive centerfold options that you can apply to the area, and be sure to focus on the natural shapes to determine where you want the eye to go when you set everything up.
