We would be happy to provide decking builds, patio installation, and fencing to renew the look of your home and provide an outdoor space to meet your needs. Once everything is ready, it’s time to decorate! Read on to learn some of our favorite decorating tips to make this outdoor oasis feel a little closer to paradise.

Use Indoor Accessories

Who says that indoor things can’t be outdoor things as well? Feel free to bring out blankets, throw pillows, and other fun furnishings to bring life, comfort, and some extra personality to your deck or patio. A patterned rug underneath your furniture can also bring some much-needed color to your outdoor space. Just make sure that you can move the pillows and blankets inside when you are done using them. The Colorado rain could damage it otherwise!

Weather-Friendly Materials

While some items may look like they are made out of wood, they are actually made from metal. You can use these items to give your patio or deck the look and feel you want while remaining confident that the weather won’t damage your new furnishings. Also, adding a layer of exterior paint to old furniture can help it last through the changing weather without damage.


What would liven up your patio space? Color! Even the ugliest brick and other materials can be transformed at an affordable price. Whether it’s the floor or the wall, you can embrace summer colors or cool neutrals to give the impression of a year-round space.

Outdoor Curtains

While this may seem strange to you, the added privacy might be a must! They provide both shade and protection from strangers’ eyes, so you will be able to enjoy your outdoor living area much longer than you may have been able to otherwise. The added shade will allow you to enjoy the the outdoors without having to sit directly in the sun and risk getting burned.

Create a Focal Point

Adding art to your outdoor space may seem a bit silly, but we disagree. By creating a focal point on a blank space, you can renew the look of your home and give your guests something to ask you about. If your patio goes up against your fence, don’t be afraid to paint an interesting design in that area! By making bold color choices, you will open up the space and make your guests feel as though they are in an oasis away from home.
