26 Apr 5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Deck or Patio
It’s spring and time for “Spring Cleaning”. What an interesting notion. The idea of spring cleaning is handed down from years ago when homes used coal fuel to heat their living space. The soot and smoke from the coal would coat the walls and almost everything else with a black film that would need to be cleaned. And so, every spring the occupants would attack the inside of their home with mop, brush and cleaner.
Springtime still represents a renewal and renovation of all things, especially around your home. That’s why we want to share the 5 ways you can spruce up your deck or patio. Do you have a deck that needs some tender loving care? Well, to help you, we have put together some unique ideas you can use to spruce up that old dreary deck or patio.
Lighting That Sets The Mood
Add some creative lighting to your deck or patio. With well thought out lighting your ordinary deck or patio will come alive and become the highlight of your home. Whether it’s recessed lighting, tucked away in the side of your deck or patio wall or ornate fixtures that tower above you, lighting that is designed to enhance rather than overwhelm will turn your backyard into a entertaining showplace.

Cover That Thing
A creative gazebo or patio cover will create the perfect entertaining space as well as provide shelter on those not so perfect days. Adding an artistic patio or deck cover is a very cost effective way to turn that open space into an intimate area for private parties or just for relaxing after a long day.
Time For Smores and Fun
Who doesn’t like a good old fashioned campout? Unfortunately, such enjoyment happens all too infrequently due to the hectic pace of today’s modern living. Why not bring the camping adventure to your own backyard? A fire pit is an affordable addition to any patio or even a outdoor deck.

Add a Spa or Hot Tub to Heat Things Up
