1) Color Coordinate The easiest way to breathe life into your patio, deck or porch is to commit to a vibrant color scheme. Tablecloths, napkins, outdoor rugs and throw pillows are all inexpensive touches that will add a cohesive splash of color to your surroundings. If you have a wood deck, you may consider staining or painting the decking in a new color (forgoing the bright accent hues for more subdued, complimentary tones).
2) Paint that Plastic Plastic patio furniture has long been an inexpensive way to furnish outdoor spaces, but most plastic furniture sets have only been available in limited range of solid colors. Due to their unforgiving slick surface, customizing the look of plastic home and garden items was practically impossible. That has all changed with the engineering of new paints designed specifically for plastic surfaces. Using these new paint products, you can easily add a splash of summer color to furniture, garden equipment and children's toys.
