Sweet, sweet summer. After what feels like years of winter, summer is finally here! This means taking advantage of every moment of sunshine we have while it lasts. And, where do we spend most of our time? At home, of course! So, whether your are entertaining, or seeking a private oasis, these simple tips will have your deck summer ready!

Snuggle Up

Create the perfect outdoor living space with some oversized, comfy couches, and chairs. With clever configurations, sectionals can turn your deck into the perfect spot to entertain, chill over the weekend, or unwind in the evening. Add an outdoor rug, and you won’t ever want to go back inside.

Twinkle, Twinkle

Adding a set of twinkly lights is the perfect way to set the mood of your outdoor space. The soft glow they bring is perfect for date night, a casual dinner party, or a fun-filled backyard party. With a fantastic selection out there, you are sure to find a set that perfectly matches your outdoor space!

Keep it Fresh

I love a pop of colour! A simple, and easy way to brighten up your deck is to add greenery, plants and/or flowers. You can incorporate different pots, stands, and displays which will keep your deck interesting, and visually appealing. Also, who doesn’t love the smell of fresh flowers?

Nap Nook

Your deck isn’t complete without a cozy spot to rest your eyes after a long day! Curl up with a great summer read, and soak in the sunshine. After all, a cat nap doesn’t just have to be for our furry friends. If you don’t have a spot to hang a hammock, consider one with a built in stand.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

There is nothing like settling into your backyard on a summer evening. The scene is complete with  the sounds of a crackling fire, while sipping your favourite beverage. A fire table is a fantastic addition to your backyard patio. Get your marshmallows ready, because who can say no to s’mores?

Brighten Up

Feeling like your patio furniture could use a refresh, but don’t have the budget to replace it? A quick and easy solution is to add some colourful cushions. Your furniture will instantly look like new, while also updating your space.

Do you have your own outdoor oasis? I would love to see your own space!
