Whether you want a peaceful porch or patio paradise, Lyons and Island TIMBER MART are here to help you decorate your outdoor space. Consider adding accessories and furnishings that reflect your personal style and create a welcoming atmosphere for entertaining guests. You can elevate your front porch and patio in a number of ways, so we have provided a list of our favourite ideas:
1. Add PLANTERS
Bring new life into your space with planters full of greenery or flowers. These natural accents look beautiful and can help purify the air as you relax on your porch or patio. Make seasonal swaps or use perennials for year-round colour. For a low-maintenance option, use realistic faux flowers that require no watering. Put your DIY skills to the test and build your own planter boxes with our step-by-step instructions.
2. Upgrade Your Seating
Whether drinking your morning coffee at sunrise or hosting a summer BBQ, a swinging chair is a trendy and comfortable addition to your outdoor space. With various outdoor seating options available, you can find the perfect addition for your porch and patio at Lyons and Island TIMBER MART. Add colour with water-resistant cushions, or refresh faded patio furniture with Rust-Oleum Outdoor Fabric Paint.
3. Install Outdoor Lighting
Turn sunny days into relaxing nights on your front porch or patio with outdoor lighting. Warm-toned string and stake lights can create a cozy and comfortable environment. Choose stake lights with a mini flame effect for a special touch. If you have a deck, consider adding stair and railing lighting as a stylish safety feature. Take outdoor lighting to the next level with a portable fire pit or fire table to add warmth and ambiance.
4. Add an Outdoor Structure
If your patio is uncovered, add shade and privacy with a pressure-treated pergola or ready-to-assemble gazebo. Outdoor structures like these can help define your space and add an element of interest to your entertaining area.
