4 Decorating Ideas for Your Exterior
Quebec, just like most other provinces in Canada, has seen a population explosion in the last couple of years. For homeowners and renters alike, a common concern is the shrinking house space available.
Aside from feeling congested, decorating also needs more creativity when dealing with smaller spaces.
Here, read about 4 decorating ideas to transform your home into a heaven- regardless of its size.
Potted plants are great for yards of any size as you can go as small or as large as is necessary.
Plants add a modern, fresh feel to a home. You also have the opportunity to choose pots that agree with the theme of your home. Be creative with your choice of plants as well. While green, leafy or flowering plants are lovely, coloured succulents can be a unique way to add colour to your exterior.
Lighting is a great way to accentuate your yard’s features at night. What’s even better is that you can have these solar-powered to save up on energy costs.
If your home has other features like a patio, swimming pool, garden and so on, you can use lights to demarcate these features as well.
Less is more, however. Because these are not for illumination, use them sparingly to accentuate a few features outside your home.
If you are looking for a simple, low maintenance decorative feature, rocks and stones are it.
You can use these to line pathways, demarcate flower beds, line spillways under your gutters and so on.
You can also use them to make statement pieces. To do this, buy stones of different sizes, colours and textures. Find a focal point in your yard or lawn and create an abstract piece with larger rocks as the base and smaller ones all around it.
When trying to find landscaping stones for your garden, consider locally available rocks and stones as these tend to be more affordable.
If you want a water feature of some sort but are struggling for space, consider a birdbath.
Birdbaths feature a water basin and a perch. These are great for any size of space because you can find a birdbath or have one made in any shape and size.
Aside from birdbaths being decorative in themselves, they are a great way to invite nature into your home. Once the bath is set up, birds will perch on the feature for water and rest, gleefully chirping away.
There is no right or wrong in the world of décor. If anything, use your creativity and personality to create an outdoor space that is both functional and enjoyable for you and your family.
These tips should help get your creative juices flowing.
