Creative Ideas For Outdoor Living

Regardless of the size of your outdoor space, add curb appeal and style by adding a few outdoor fixtures. If you are trying to create an outdoor space to enjoy all year around, you will find these great DIY home decor ideas to be particularly helpful.

Outdoor lighting is essential when planning your DIY decor. Whether it is a wide-open patio, plush outdoor balcony, or even something in-between, utilize your outdoor space to the fullest.



You can create an outdoor living area for less than $200 with just a few simple DIY home decorating tips. To create an outdoor lounge or entertainment center, gather several chairs in a circle. Then place a small barbeque grill or fire pit directly in the middle of the circle.

Add a table or two with a big wall mounted TV or plasma TV. Place a couch or love seat by the television for comfort while watching movies. Finally, position a lamp somewhere in the distance, near the barbeque or fire pit, so that it can provide a soft lighting source.

With your DIY backyard decor, you may want to add a covered picnic table to your backyard. Add a large coffee maker or tea kettle with a built in espresso machine, along with a few glasses and some tea bags.

For some fun outdoor activities, gather some folding chairs around a picnic table, then set out a volleyball net or other sporting equipment. Place a couple blankets over the area, then set out a portable playground area for the kids.

A more formal version of outdoor living space can be created with a covered porch swing, chaise lounge, or chaise lounge. Use tall and elegant wrought iron railings, then place a wooden bench in front of the porch. The perfect complement to the porch swing is a tall, beautiful iron birdbath.

If you want to bring more attention to your garden, why not add a few outdoor lights? Install some string lights along the walkway to your garden, or deck, and surround them with beautiful plants. Make them a focal point with the help of a landscape painting.

Another great idea for your DIY backyard decorating ideas is to have a pool or spa. Just dig a hole in the ground, and install a hot tub or whirlpool. Have it in a place where the sun can shine down on your garden. This will help get rid of the dark corners from the sun.
