Each room in your house has its own function. However, the use of outdoor spaces can vary based on your own needs. Your freely organized outdoor patios or gardens reflex your own aesthetic taste. You can do anything, but stating out the nice and the no for your outdoor spaces is crucial to avoid backyard-bomb. Don’t ruin the mood by these common outdoor decorating mistakes.
Bring indoor furniture outside
We know you love your indoor furniture, but don’t get too obsessed. The outlook might persuade you to think that it fit for your patios but it not, functionally. The bulky feather sofas or leather chairs can’t stand the outdoor weather.
Overwhelmed or empty outdoor spaces
Your backyard, garden, patio or balcony are for your relaxation, entertaining, gathering or dining. That’s why, when decorating outdoor spaces, you might encounter a huge mistake of putting everything you like on the spot. It’s still ok for spacious outdoor space, but for a limited one, that will be a big problem. Don’t let your outdoor space become a garage sale spot with too many unmatched pieces of furniture. The possible solution is to find the link among your furniture. Select outdoor furniture that can be better together or with the same materials, colors or designs.
On the other hand, some owners may feel too lazy or hesitate when decorating outdoor spaces, so they let them empty or just grow some small plants. Don’t waste that golden spot in your house. Though you might be a minimalist, add a little touch to represent your own outdoor style.
Sometimes, when looking at your outdoor lounging or dining area, surrounded by pieces of furniture, you might feel “Something is missing”. Sofa sets, dining sets or bar sets usually come in neutral tones like dark brown or black. What your outdoor garden needs is a special touch, and that is how outdoor accessories come in handy.
There are a variety of outdoor accessories available like outdoor pillows and cushions, outdoor lanterns, urns, baskets or cabinets.
Plant-less outdoor spaces
Some outdoor gardens might already have surrounded plants, but not on limited outdoor areas like balcony or porch. Add a little green or some fragrant flowers to your outdoor spaces can significantly improve the outlook as well as the atmosphere. Let your whole body relieve in the charming outdoor lounging spot.
Lack of arranging ideas
A lounging or gathering area requires a close seating for a warmer and more convenient conversation. Don’t put seating far away from each other, which can create an awkward outdoor area with space in the middle.
Poor choices of color
You will find yourself stuck in choosing or mixing colors in your outdoor spaces. Outdoor furniture usually comes in black, white, dark brown or gray. Let that neutral tone be a background for other colorful accessories like pillows and cushions.
But be careful when adding too many colors. Choose the one that can harmonize with each other for a unique and fresh looking outdoor space.
