So you have seen some of the most expensive and impressive outdoor furniture in the world. You don’t have the money for it, we don’t either but it is handy for ideas. So how about some advice you can actually afford? There are many small ways you can improve any setting so we want to give you even more ideas in a completely different way. Food for thought is always a good thing when creating your own setup.
What is the difference between a designer cushion and one that you can get cheaply? Perception. Many of the designs you see on each are either similar or the same. Many of the discount ones today were designer ones yesterday, their age just made them fall out of favor. Adding them to any setting can make things much more comfortable for you and your guests. Quite a few of them have intricate designs that look great as well.
A signature piece of outside lounge furniture can go a long way into defining a setting. Maybe it is an overstated pink chair with roses on it. Perhaps you have an ultramodern daybed that the people you care about can relax on. Make it the focal point which everything else pays attention to and it can bring an unexpected and welcome presence to any setting.
We have said it before but healthy, vibrant plants can bring that same feeling to your outdoor furniture. Make sure you tend them well in order to keep them looking great. If everything is set up right then it can really bring life to a dreary setting. You may want to pair the furniture up with earth tones in order to enhance the effect.
Mix your older pieces with new ones and put them parallel to each other. Why? Because the dichotomy can really make the room stand out. You may be worried that they will clash but in this case a clash is what you actually want. It makes people think and gives the room a different kind of atmosphere. Do not be afraid to mix in colorful lighting or even Chinese lanterns if it stands out.
Choosing a theme is yet another way to liven up any outdoor room. Maybe you want a Tuscan-style setting with some authentic coffee to go with the setting. Or perhaps a French napping area would work better for you with a daybed and some luxurious curtains that your guests can relax in. There is no wrong answer as long as you have a clear vision of what you want.
So what do these all have in common? You can get them from discount retailers and thrift stores in order to save yourself quite a bit of money. There are many different locations to get these outdoor furniture embellishments as well. Think about a few yourself and decide whether you want to go get some in the following days. You may find that things are easier to set up than you ever thought possible.
