The Seats
It is easy to redecorate any seats regardless of its form. The common type of seats we have in an outdoor setup include seating sets, bar stools, recliners, chairs, and benches. There are three ways in which you can renew the design and style.

  • Cushion Covers – Change or add outdoor cushion covers. Depending on the cushion size, the new cover will make the seat look new and  look very different with its original design.
  • Extra Cushions – Changing and adding new cushions. If your seat cushion have deformed and torn after a long period of use, changing the pads will make it look new and different. Now for styling, you can select different designs and style of cushion.
  • Pillows – Pillows offer two benefits, comfort and style. Outdoor cushions can come in different colors and design which makes your seats more attractive. Changing seat cushions is a great and easy way to style seating sets.

Center Tables and Side Tables
These little tables are companions to your seats that you can use as utility where you can put magazines and a cup of tea. Aside from that, they are an accent to the setup so they need to be stylized as well. Styling a center table and a side table is easy with the use of a cover and a centerpiece. Then, you can add some accents such as a flower base or a little potted plant. They can also be a nice place for your photo albums, picture frames, and other memorabilia items.

The Table and Dining Set
If you are creating a patio for dining or just for a quick food trip, then there are a lot of things you can do to decorate a table. Draperies can do the trick in changing the looks of the table. Dress up your table with a table cloth or cover to give it a new style. There are table cloth styles with center hole to fit tables with an outdoor umbrella.You put a basket with some fruits on top of a centerpiece so that it will not look empty when not in use. Using fake fruits are more practical for decorating. If you are creating a large dining area, a large offset patio umbrella would be the best choice for a shade and style.
