Easy Ways to Decorate Your Patio for Summer

Summer is nearly year-round in Florida, but even so you might find yourself spending more time outside during the summer months. It's way more enjoyable to spend time outdoors when you can relax and enjoy the way your home looks.

3. Versatile seating

An outdoor sofa is perfect for large families or if you plan on taking a few naps outside. A dining set with 4-6 chairs is great for smaller homes who wish to do a little bit of entertaining or have dinner parties. If you don't have room for more tables or chairs, consider some large sitting pillows. 

If your furniture will be sitting in the direct sun, opt for light colored cushions or materials so they don't become too hot to sit on. Plus it won't be as obvious when the fabric starts to fade from the sun.

4. Outdoor Pillows

If you already have the seating you need but still want to change it up your decor, throw pillows are the perfect way to do so!

There are so many options to choose from design wise. Don't be afraid to play with color and pattern with your pillows. Too often outdoor furniture comes in boring colors so play with color when you can!

7. Fans

This is almost a necessity in Florida! If the heat is what's making you stay inside, consider investing in a few fans to help cool down your patio. They are also great to help circulate air if your patio is enclosed. Even better if it's a misting fan!
