Spending time outside on your porch or patio is a great way to lift your spirits, enjoy the summer weather, and get outside while staying safe. But if you weren’t utilizing your outdoor space as often before, now might be the perfect time for a spruce. Here are 3 budget-friendly picks to give your patio a new life.
1) Add an outdoor rug.
When you think about affordable ways to spruce up a space, adding a rug might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Fortunately, there are a ton of budget friendly outdoor options like this fashionable all-weather design from Safavieh that comes in at under $50 for a 4’ x 6’ sized rug.
2) Light up your life (or at least your patio).
Summer evenings are the perfect time to read, relax, or talk on your porch or patio, and adding some fresh lighting will make you want to linger outside longer. These 50-foot string lights with Edison Glass bulbs will add a soft glow to your space for $36.
3) Get cozy with cushions.
If you’ve been dining outside more often lately, adding some comfortable and colorful seat cushions to your outdoor dining chairs is a quick and affordable way to spruce up your outdoors space. They might even make your chairs cozy enough to work from home on during the day. These classic herringbone seat cushions from Pillow Perfect come in at under $65 for a set of 2.
