Accessorizing Your Outdoor Room

August 17, 2017 Outdoor GreatRoom Company

Once you have your outdoor space filled with your furniture, fire pit table, kitchen, or pergola, it's time to think about accessorizing. Like the indoors, you must decorate after you furnish to complete the space. Check out some of our favorite outdoor accessory ideas that are guaranteed to add a finished and more inviting look to your backyard!

String Lights Adding lighting outside not only allows you to stay out longer than the sun, but it also creates an cozy and soft ambiance that sets the tone for great memories. Hang up a string of outdoor twinkle lights under your pergola or crisscross over your patio/yard and it will instantly illuminate your space with a stunning glow while pulling guests' eyes to your fire focal point. You can find plug-in and solar varieties in a range of bulb styles. String lights are an instant backyard makeover and can make your own patio or deck a staycation.

Lanterns Hanging, sitting, or standing lanterns is another fun and unique outdoor lighting idea. There are many creative products and DIY ideas such as a glass jar with fairy lights, a wired cage with light bulbs, or a metal frame holding glass walls with battery operated LED candles that pose no fire hazard, but the options are endless! Accessorizing your outdoor space with lanterns can light up unwanted dark areas and compliment your backyard theme.

Outdoor Rugs On your patio, porch, or even lawn, include a rug to make outdoor living feel homey and welcoming. There are endless patterns, colors, and textures to choose from, so think about the rest of your outdoor space style. You can go bold with a contrastive pop of color or a multicolor pattern outdoor rug, or perhaps you already have a lot of colors and patterns in your space and you need a single-color neutral rug to compliment your existing furnishings. These outdoor rugs are built to last and fabricated to endure moisture, sunlight, and other weather elements. Outdoor rugs have the power to compliment your outdoor furniture, make your outdoor pillows pop, and tie the room together.

Outdoor Pillows Explore outdoor pillows to throw on a loveseat, chair, couch, or bench to add a finished look to your backyard. Similar to outdoor rugs, you can design your outdoor pillows according to your space in the same way you can design your interior rooms. Pillows and fabrics can bring new life to your outdoor space, so get creative and experiment with pillow pallets and patterns, and even change with the season! Adding these fun and simple accessories can finish your space and extend the outdoor season by making it more cozy and inviting as we approach cool fall nights.
