With the temperatures rising here in Maryland homeowners are spending more and more time outdoors and that means it’s time to head out onto the deck.

There are many things you can do to decorate your deck and make it feel more functional and attractive, so that you can spend more time enjoying it.

Let’s look at some simple things you can do to your deck to make a big impact.

Five Ways to Decorate Your Deck this Summer

Go Green

One of the best things you can do to decorate your deck is to add some life to it. By adding live plants to your deck you can give it some color while also growing gorgeous plants you can enjoy.

Whether you want to add potted plants to the corners of your deck, or a living wall along the side of your house, you can’t go wrong with some plants. If your deck has full afternoon sun, for example, make sure to choose plants that will do well there, such as succulents or roses.

Add Some Lights

Adding string lights can transform your deck at night and extend the amount of time you spend outside. String lights create a dreamy ambiance, and can easily be added to your deck.

Whether you string them from the house to the edges of the deck, or through a pergola, the lights are sure to add some warmth and beauty to your space.

If hanging lights isn’t a feasible option for your deck, consider running the lights around the edges of your railings for a more subtle glow.

Get Comfortable

Perhaps the most important part of decorating your deck is choosing furniture you love. If you are looking to create an outdoor entertaining space, consider getting more comfortable furniture, such as an outdoor sectional couch or loveseat. By adding attractive seating and some colorful throw pillows, you can instantly make your deck more attractive and functional.
