DIY Patio Updates For Under $250

DIY Patio Updates For Under $250

Does your patio need a refresh for the warmer months we are heading into? If you are looking for budget friendly DIY updates, look no further, we have you covered! 

It is no secret that our outdoor spaces go through a lot over the winter months here in the Shuswap. To start, we highly recommend giving them a really good clean, this makes a world of difference. Pressure wash surfaces to remove dirt, grime, and mildew buildup. Inspect your patio and outdoor space for any damages and make the necessary repairs. Once you have it sparkling clean like new, it is time to make it shine! Here are 5 great DIY tips that are too good not to share:  

DIY Idea #1 - Bricks and concrete pavers are the easiest patio materials to use because they have a uniform shape and create a relatively flat surface. This is helpful if you want to roll the BBQ across it, use it is as an exercise space with your mat or wear heels while hosting a dinner party. 

DIY Idea #2 - Head over to a secondhand shop or online space and see what people are selling for a fraction of the price you would pay to buy new - think patio furniture - tables, chairs, patio covers, fire tables etc.  

DIY Idea #3 - Add some personality and comfort with outdoor cushions and pillows, candles, decor and strung up lights - make it a whole summer vibe that's usuable whether eating your meals, enjoying your morning coffee, entertaining or reading emails.  

DIY Idea #4 - Plants, plants and more plants! Whether it is flowers, vegetables, greens or a bit of everything - utilize the space you have to add vertical plant walls, flower pots or hangers etc. These are the such a great way to enhance your outdoor space! You can get pots from secondhand stores, repurpose items found around your home, make yourself a planter from building material scraps and then head to your local Shuswap garden centre to fill them up! 

With a little bit of thought, time spent and a budget, the things you can do to update your patio are endless! Enjoy the creating process and sit back and enjoy the season and your little piece of Shuswap paradise.
