Spice Up Your Patio With 5 Outdoor Necessities

August 25, 2014

Do you notice that your guests avoid your patio? Is your outdoor decor lacking or outdated? If so, it’s time to spice up your patio! Heritage Custom Homes in Murfreesboro, TN designs multiple patios to go along with the custom-built homes we create. Use these five patio furniture accessories to transform your patio into a fun space for family and friends alike.

Outdoor Rug

One of the latest trends is to add an outdoor rug to your patio. Whether your patio is part of your custom-built home or even a patio in an apartment complex, an outdoor rug can add the welcoming and warm appeal you’ve been searching for.

When choosing a rug style, make sure that the materials are durable and can last through a variety of weather elements.


From comfy chairs and quaint coffee tables to full dining table sets, adding furniture to your patio will draw the attention of your guests. In addition, what better way to spend the weekend than relaxing on your patio with friends and family? The furniture you choose will set the mood for your patio, so be sure to determine what feeling you want your guests to enjoy on your patio before choosing your furniture.

Outdoor Lighting

As a Murfreesboro, TN home owner with a patio, you have a wide array of outdoor lighting options. From rustic lanterns to hip light strings, these options will brighten up your patio and pull your outdoor decor design together.

Personal Decorations

Every patio would not be complete without the addition of your personal style. Whether you choose a chic sign with an inspirational saying, or a type of pottery or artwork that exemplifies your style, these additions to your patio will enhance the appeal and aesthetic of your home overall.

Add a Splash of Color

You want your patio to draw people in, not push them away. Adding bold colors to your patio will definitely capture the attention of your family and friends. Be careful to balance the color on your patio just right. Avoid adding too much color to your patio, or it will appear tacky and out of place.
