What is your patio missing? It could be that it needs a little something extra to make the space feel complete. This article has five accent pieces that will take your patio from nice to fabulous. From outdoor lighting and plants to furniture and decor, here are five unexpected accent pieces to add to your patio.
String Lights and Painted Pottery
String lights are a great way to create an outdoor ambiance on your patio. They make for unique nighttime lighting when you want to relax in the evening or entertain friends. String lights can be hung anywhere from trees to tables.
String lights also look beautiful paired with painted pottery like this set of white urns. Also, if you are feeling crafty, try painting your pottery to bring the look together.
Potted Plants and Decorative Bowls
Adding potted plants to your patio is a great way to bring the outside in. Not only will this make it feel like you are on vacation, but they also provide privacy and keep bugs away.
Plants can also be used as random accent pieces for your patio space. Potted plants are great because they fill up an empty corner of a deck or highlight areas that have poor landscaping. Also, if you are looking for a way to add some privacy, they can do the job by blocking views from neighboring homes.
As a bonus, potted plants make your patio look great in any season. You can use them as decor or fill decorative bowls with Easter grass and plastic eggs in the spring, fall leaves in autumn, and spooky decor in the winter.
Rolling Patio Cooler and Outdoor Rug
A patio cooler is a great accent piece for any outdoor space. Not only does it provide extra seating, but the patio cooler can be used to store drinks and food when you have guests over. A bonus of these types of pieces is that many different styles are available, so find one that fits your style.
An outdoor rug is another great accent piece for your patio, especially if you are looking for an easy way to change the look of your space on a whim. Outdoor rugs come in many different styles and patterns, so find one that matches the decor or style of your home.
Furniture Pieces and Wicker Baskets
Besides string lights and potted plants, furniture pieces also make great accent pieces for your patio. There are many different styles of outdoor chairs to choose from that can be used individually or in groupings. Also, wicker baskets provide a simple way to add storage to your patio while adding style at the same time.
Lanterns, Tiki Torches, and Wind Chimes
Lanterns are a great way to add ambiance at night by providing soft light that doesn’t attract bugs. Tiki torches are a great way to add an island feel to your patio while keeping bugs at bay, and wind chimes can also provide some light ambient noise when you want relaxation on the deck.
