Globe, lantern, and wall lights add personality during both day and night. Their unique designs make them beautiful for different styles of patios. Globe lights hang from the ceiling while lantern lights can be installed from the ceiling or wall.
Outdoor hanging lights provide a low-maintenance option and add a romantic feel to your space. Hang them along shrubs, walls, or across the patio.
No matter what type of light fixture you choose, always make sure to use outdoor cords and light bulbs. Indoor lights cannot handle the same conditions as outdoor light fixtures. Rain, rough weather, dust, and corrosion could damage indoor lights.
Clean what you own
Sure, buying new furniture modernizes your patio but sometimes we cannot afford a brand-new outdoor set. If your furniture and appliances still work well but don’t shine as bright, cleaning your patio might solve the problem.
Loose debris often scatters across your patio. Having a proper, outdoor brush begins the process of your patio makeover. After that, use simple dilutions of soap and water or all-purpose cleaners to clean your patio furniture. Double check the materials of your furniture and appliances when picking a cleaning solution.
Investing in pesticides or herbicides performs wonders for your outdoor space. Getting rid of unwanted pests helps prolong your lawn’s life and prevents discomfort at the next get-together. Using these products in advance prevents future pest or weeds from interrupting outside time.

Organize and Re-vamp!
Sometimes we need a catch-all space for a patio makeover. An outdoor storage shed securely holds items like lawn equipment, power tools, and seasonal décor. Without the clutter, there’s more space to entertain yourself, family, and friends!
Re-vamping a utility cart into a bar cart supports multifunctionality and sturdiness for your hospitality needs. When it’s time to bring the bottles and glasses inside, the cart returns to its intended purpose.
