If you own a deck, then you already know that fall creates the perfect backdrop for enhancing the look of your outdoor living space.
As we noted in a previous blog post, fall is actually an ideal time to begin staining your deck, because of its cooler temperatures and low humidity. But, if you’re looking for creative ways to improve your deck space in time for annual fall gatherings, including neighborhood festivals, homecoming weekend, or Halloween parties, then check out these budget-friendly ideas to help you decorate your deck with a fall-inspired look you’ll love:
Deck Accessories: Adding small touches to your deck, such as benches or storage boxes is a great way to get the most value from your outdoor space. Accessories not only help update your deck’s appearance, but they also provide added functionality, including saving space and providing additional seating for friends and family to gather.
Deck Lighting: Another great deck fixture, deck lighting is a simple, yet effective way of enhancing the look and safety of an outdoor area. Whether you decide to have lighting installed in your stairs, deck railings, or looped around your outdoor pergola, this is a great and cost-effective option to decorate your deck. You may also consider adding festive lanterns on your deck space or hanging them on a trellis for an affordable, chic look.
Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins: When we think of fall, we think of pumpkins, right? Adding some natural elements to your deck space, such as a few orange pumpkins and/or piles of hay, can really get people excited for autumn. This is also a great way to incorporate fall colors onto your deck without using paint.
Curtains and Blankets: As fall is a cooler time of year to be outdoors, be sure to add some throw blankets in fall colors and/or curtains to your pergola to create a cozy space for serving hot cocoa and cider to friends.
