Now that it’s time to start thinking about being outside more often, you’re probably pondering what types of exterior revamps you’d like to accomplish. Many of us enjoy the luxury of lounging on our deck, but the same old stuff can sometimes get boring. We have you covered if you’re looking to add some newness without breaking the bank.
Here are a few aesthetically pleasing deck upgrades to make this spring that won’t require a complete renovation!
Revamp the Decking
Before you add too much to the deck, consider completing a thorough inspection to check for signs of wear. Keeping your deck in shape ensures safety for all and helps maintain the value it adds to your home.
The railing often becomes weak and wobbly, so a way to spruce it up is to install deck cable railing. It’s sleek, modern, and easy to maintain year after year.
Consider Climate Control
When you’re outside on the patio, climate control gives a touch of customization and total comfort. Things like fans and fireplaces make visually appealing additions and optimize the space in many settings.
So while you can’t necessarily control the outdoor climate, you can control the climate in your immediate space, which adds to the overall appeal.
Add Some Lighting
A quick, easy, and aesthetically pleasing deck upgrade to make this spring is getting new lighting. Something as simple as a string of patio lights can bring a pleasant ambiance to a space.
Other options, such as lanterns and candles, add illumination. But the cool thing is you don’t have to limit yourself to just one light. Play around with the space and see what works best for you.
Upgrade the Furniture
Upgrading the furniture typically happens every few years as your style changes and trends come and go. But if you’re looking to stick to a budget, you can refinish or revamp your existing furniture and give it a second life.
Of course, almost no deck is complete without a few plants. But if you’re looking to create an appealing space, try not to leave the plants in their original pots.
Finding ceramic planters or handmade pots is a great way to add personal touches. Also, consider how you can hang a few plants to frame doorways and entryways to make the space more inviting.
No matter what you do, ensure you create a space in which you can go and unwind. It should be a space of relaxation, memories, long nights, and early morning lounging with coffee. Happy spring!
