I would share one of my favorite blogger sharing about his Patio. His patio is a large rectangle, and He broke the space up into a dining area and seating area. He also has a portable fire pit that we use between the two spaces when we want to roast s’ mores. Even if all you currently have is a small balcony, think about how you want to utilize the space and purchase furniture that will allow you to make the most of it. All of his outdoor furniture and both rugs are from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart.

Below are some tips collected by him for you:

TIP 1: Try to use outdoor rugs to ground all spaces

Outdoor rugs are one of the people’s favorite outdoor decor inventions ever! They clean up easily, look beautiful, and complete a space. He just blows mine off with a leaf blower once a week and they look good as new. The patio receives a lot of hot South Carolina sun so after rain showers, our rugs tend to dry out quickly. If your patio is shaded but not covered, then an outdoor rug might not be the best option for you. Instead, consider painting your patio to create a cement tile or rug look. I used the BHG Damask Outdoor Rug in our seating area and the BHG Camrose Quatrefoil Rug in the dining area.

TIP 2: Floral Containers as an accent

Fresh flowers always make a table, and I love adding them indoors and out! Trader Joe’s is my go-to for the best selection at the cheapest prices. When arranging flowers, think outside the box for your vases.
