Patio Decor Checklist

Whatever design theme you choose, include these essential items for a comfortable and stylish patio:

  • String lights: Give your patio a magical quality at night with the soft, diffused light of string lighting. Choose from paper lanterns, rope lighting, classic icicle lights, and more.
  • Accent pillows: Available in a wide range of colors and patterns, accent pillows can give your patio a cohesive look that coordinates with your design theme.
  • Outdoor furniture: Designed for durability from the elements, outdoor furniture is available in a variety of colors and styles.
  • Fire pits: Creates a main focal point for your patio and a cozy, warm vibe that is perfect for evening lounging or get-togethers.
  • Plants: Depending on your design theme, greenery can include anything from potted herbs and flowers to extra large foliage such as ferns and palms.
  • Citronella Candle: You and your loved ones can enjoy the outdoors without getting bitten by mosquitoes or other pests. If mosquitoes are a major problem where you live, you’ll also need insect repellent on hand for extra protection.
  • Grill: Have fun barbequing for friends and family with a patio equipped with a functional outdoor kitchen.

Break out the ice tea, fire up the grill, and have some outdoor fun on your stylishly updated patio.
