Nothing beats spending some time outside as the weather warms up. Shake off those winter blues and give your outdoor space some new life just in time for the new season. We’ve pulled a few helpful tips from HGTV to give you some revitalizing ideas for spring.
Add Some Fresh Paint
Freshen up your exterior doors with some pastel-colored paint to match the season. Painting exterior doors will also help hide any damage weathered during the winter months due to cold temperatures. Fluctuation in temperatures can cause paint to warp, so a fresh coat of paint will give your exterior doors an entirely new look, while also adding some protection to the elements.
Add Stylish Seating Options
Mix-and-match outdoor seating is on-trend right now. You can choose from comfy outdoor chairs and sofas to colorful garden stools. Also, light-weight seating gives you the flexibility to rearrange the setup in a flash. Fabrics should be weather-resistant to survive the entire season and into the summer.
Add Small Tables
Instead of a large outdoor dining set, opt for a small space-saving bistro table, as there are so many cute options to choose from. A matching bistro set can be used at any place in your outdoor space without compromising the *space*. Also, many bistro tables can fold up for easy storage when not in use.
Whether you live in a single-family home or an apartment, you can make your outdoor space feel like a private oasis just by hanging curtains or draperies. Look for ones specifically made for outdoor use. They are meant to withstand the elements and are a little heavier so they don’t blow so much into the wind. Hang a curtain rail so you can slide open the curtains whenever you want, or hang the drapes static from the ceiling. Also, you can use a tie to secure them to a pole or column when you want to open them.
Add a Rug
Feel comfortable enough to kick off your shoes with a nice outdoor rug or two. Outdoor rugs differ from your average indoor rug because they withstand the elements and can be cleaned easier. Since there are so many textures and patterns, you are sure to find something to fit your style.

Add Pops of Color
Go bold with color in your outdoor space. Sunny weather makes the bright colors pop and winter blues fade away. Choose from coastal turquoise, bright green, radiant purple, or any color you can think of.
