2. Use lights

Lights can go a long way when decorating your patio. You will want to make sure you find lights that are safe for outside weather. Check out a few of these top rated lights on Amazon.

3. Add patterns

Find pillows, throw blankets (outdoor friendly), rugs, or other fabric based items to spice things up on your patio. Adding a little color and pattern to your patio can really turn things around. Here are a few inexpensive ideas from Amazon. A quick stop to your local thrift store would also be a great idea to find something.

That is why you should bring things to life with some low maintenance plants like succulents, burgundy Cordyline, cacti, or aloe vera. Check out this list of a few other low maintenance plants and how to care for them.

You can get these plants at your local store. Or, if you want to be super low maintenance, you can snag cheap fake plants from Amazon!  or even find them on Amazon! Check out a few of these adorable and fake plants you can add to your patio!

5. Less is More

If you are working with small space or aren’t the most creative like myself, remember the mantra LESS IS MORE. Adding one or two large items that help define the space will go so much further than adding a little bit of everything. Remember that less is more and to showcase your personal style and taste on your patio.
