Having flower pots on a patio is great if you live in a small apartment and do not have a garden, it adds a nice touch of nature to your area.

You can also plant flowers directly in your patio in a mini garden bed, if you have an outdoor space where the sun shines for most of the day.

You can also put some potted plants on your patio floor for decoration! Outdoor plants are great patio decor, and they can help you out with keeping mosquitos away (and thus protecting your guests). Popular outdoor plants include succulents, lavender and cactuses.

3. Furniture

Do you want something rustic, boho, or timeless? Outdoor furniture decorating can be difficult at first if you don’t have a style or theme in mind, but thankfully a bit of inspo online can help plan the aesthetic theme of your outdoor space.

When decorating a patio with furniture always keep light-weight items in mind to make moving them around easier for yourself when necessary. Make sure you have correct outdoor seating, because not all furniture is weather-proof!

4. Floor Cushions

If you want something more subtle instead, try putting down floor cushions for seating! Floor pillows make it easier to get comfortable when sitting out on your patio all day long while reading a good book or just enjoying the sunshine.

Just remember to bring them inside before it rains!
