The holidays are right around the corner, and many residents of Brevard County, FL are getting into the holiday spirit by decorating. This festive time of year calls for wreaths, lights, and festive décor. Of course, if you’re decorating the inside of your home you can’t forget your outdoor areas! Many people overlook these areas while decorating, focusing mostly on the living room, dining room and outdoor lights. But decorating your porch, patio, or screen room adds to the holiday cheer. Make your porch or patio into a cozy, inviting space where you can entertain guests and family that might be visiting. To get you started we have some easy decorating tips to help you get your screen room ready for the holidays!
Lighting is Key
Now that the Florida weather is finally cooling off, being out on your porch or patio is much more pleasant. Spend a little time making it even more inviting by stringing light strands around the inside of your screen enclosure to give it a cozy glow. Want to get a little more creative? Try hanging parallel light strands from the ceiling to give the illusion of a shimmering waterfall of lights. Apple spice, pumpkin, and pine scented candles also provide attractive lighting and will make your porch smell great.
Aim for Comfort
You and your guests will enjoy spending time in your screen room much more if it has comfortable furniture. Consider adding plush, festive pillows and cushions to make your chairs more inviting. Have a couple light blankets handy too so you can enjoy the fresh outdoor air on chilly nights. Adding a bright outdoor rug can also create a homey feel, and a rug is much nicer to walk on than concrete or tile. Make sure it is resistant to water and mold since screen rooms are subject to rain and moisture.
There are tons of fun DIY projects that will turn your porch or patio into a festive hideaway; homemade decorations can also cost much less than buying decorations from a store. Wreaths, painted signs, mason jar candle holders…the list of DIY holiday decorating ideas is endless. If you have kids, crafting homemade decorations can be even more enjoyable. What a great way to make memories spending time with your children while getting into the holiday spirit!
