Warmer weather is here, so you’ll probably be spending more time outdoors. Because your outdoor space is about to become a more regular hangout, taking your patio décor up a notch is a fantastic way to welcome spring in style.
While you likely already have some patio furniture, switching up the smaller decorative items, like pillows, rugs, and lighting, can have a huge impact on your outdoor space. Plus, the smaller stuff is way more affordable than upgrading your furniture.
If you’re ready to spruce up your patio or deck on a budget, these 30 pieces are the perfect place to start.
One of the easiest ways to add more visual interest to your outdoor space is via new lighting. Whether you’ve got a pergola that needs some string lights or a seating area that could use a few lanterns, you’ll find the perfect option on this list:

If you want to add a pop of color to your patio, porch, or deck, textiles are the way to go. A few colorful seat cushions, pillows, and a rug or two are all it takes to completely transform your backyard.
