The weather is finally getting warmer, and you’re probably ready to spruce up your outdoor space. But before you go rushing out to buy new furniture, you might want to take some time to consider how you want your outdoor space to look. Matching your outdoor furniture to your home’s décor is a lot easier than you think. In this blog, we look at how to style your outdoor furniture to match your home’s décor.
1. Match colour schemes
When you’re styling your outdoor furniture, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to match the exact colours of your home’s décor. However, a similar colour scheme helps create continuity, which will make your outdoor space feel more like a cohesive whole with your home. Pick a colour palette that reflects the personality and style of your home. Then work around this colour palette when choosing colours for your outdoor space. Pick outdoor furniture and outdoor furnishings that complement the colours of your home. This way, your garden will also complement your inside spaces.
2. Use similar textures
When it comes to outdoor furniture, you can make your home look great by using similar textures. For example, if you have a wooden deck, then it’s a good idea to use wooden chairs and tables as well. If you have an outdoor space that is mainly made up of stone or concrete, then it’s best to choose furniture that has a similar texture. Harsh textures like this won’t match well with something smooth like plastic or vinyl.
It’s also important not to use too many different textures in one space. This will only make things look cluttered and messy.
3. Choose indoor/outdoor furniture
Outdoor furniture is a great way to make your home feel like an extension of the indoors. You can choose from a wide range of styles and colours to match your décor and add to the overall appearance of your house. When choosing outdoor furniture for your home, consider choosing furniture that doesn’t look out of place indoors. This can help to create a more inviting feel and atmosphere to your garden while also making it feel like an outdoor living area.
4. Make it cosy
If you’re going for a relaxed and homely vibe, think of blankets and throws that you can use outdoors and store inside after use. You can use them to cover your furniture or lay them over the top of it to add warmth and comfort to your outdoor space. It’s not just about adding lots of cushions, think about other ways to add texture to your outdoor space. Soft furnishings help to further create the idea of the garden being an extension of your inside spaces. You could also hang string lights from trees or around the perimeter of your garden so that it feels more festive whenever you have extra guests around.
5. Pick some indoor outdoor plants
If you’re looking to create a cohesive look between your indoor and outdoor spaces, try using some indoor plants as outside decor. They’ll help make your home look more appealing and will add a layer of colour when they’re blooming. Plants are great for adding structure and colour to an outdoor space that may not have much character otherwise. As long as any indoor plants you place outside are weather resistant you’re good to go.
