Doctor and Deck Out Your Outdoor Spaces for Fall

September 22, 2011 | Barbara's Blog

As the summer comes to an end the evenings become cool and crisp.  That doesn’t mean you need to abandon your outdoor spaces though!  Don’t underestimate the power of a beautiful outside living area. Whether you are trying to sell a home or do a quick redesign staging and decorating your outdoor space can go a long way.  Decks and patios are often lost real estate space. Decorated properly an outdoors space can become an extension of your home. Here are a few tips for making a warm and welcoming outdoor space for fall and winter.

Tip 1: Now is the perfect time to fix up any loose nails, re-stain a dingy deck, or power wash the patio.

Tip 2: Use lower wattage lighting or small decorative lights to illuminate an outdoor space. It cuts energy costs and creates a magical and soothing environment.

Tip 3: Put away the umbrella. Make sure you clean it first. Then let the sky be your canopy. 

Tip 4: Now is the perfect time to buy new cushions for your outdoor furniture. Most stores will have outdoor patio furniture and accessories on sale. 

Tip 5: Decorate an empty corner for fall with a barrel of hay some gourds or pumpkins and a large pot full of colorful mums.
