Summer is all about spending time outdoors. Whether you’re hosting guests or just enjoying a sunset, your patio should be an inviting space. Now is the perfect time to add some rustic home accessories to your patio. Rustic home accessories are great for outdoor areas because they are often made of re-purposed materials that have spent time exposed to the elements. This means there is no fear of damage or having to replace them before the season is over. Rustic home accessories also give you the chance to show off your design style, personality, and add character rather than having the same mass-produced outdoor pieces others have. Here are a few ways to get your patio ready for summer using rustic home accessories.
- Planters – Planters are decorative elements that come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. They are versatile, functional, and decorative. Plant bright colorful flowers or a garden. You can entertain guests all summer long with fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
- Outdoor Signs/Pictures – Make your patio stand out by adding outdoor signs and pictures. Rustic home accessories have a vintage appearance filled with character. They will be focal points or fun accent pieces. Signs can be placed in gardens, grassy areas, or even hung on the wall as art.
- Blankets – Throw blankets are useful for creating a comfortable, welcoming space. They are handy if temperatures get cooler at night or if it happens to be breezy. When entertaining many guests, they can create more available seating or become a play area for children.
- Wagon Wheels – There is nothing more rustic than wagon wheels. They are perfect for patios because they have withstood the elements. A wagon wheel can be used as a decorative entryway piece or in your garden. Take this one step further by attaching them to a bench or planter to create a functional, unique piece of art.
- Seating – The #1 feature of any outdoor patio is seating. Embracing rustic home accessories means getting to utilize wood and pieces with character. Choose seating that is unique and has personality. This is your chance to set your patio décor apart from the rest while entertaining and enjoying the outdoors this summer.
- Outdoor String Lights – Outdoor string lights create ambiance and soft lighting. They add mood to your patio. Plus, many string lights today are made to resemble rustic light bulbs which will add even more of a rustic touch.
