Everyone loves a beautiful home and everyone loves a well-decorated home. The veranda is often one of the simplest regions of the house but it needs just as many decorations as the rest of the house if it is to make an impression. An interior designer friend of mine once told me that just like someone’s clothes, the verandah is the first impression anyone gets of your home. therefore, make it as beautiful as possible with very simple decorative steps that you can use as we will show you below.
Hang a few paintings
Of course, you can never go wrong with art. A few paintings on the wall will do you quite some good in making your veranda look more beautiful. Ensure your paintings and other artistic wall are well-kept and away from elements that could damage the. The positioning and styling of wall art are also very important. Be careful not to have too many pieces of wall art that will beat the purpose of the decorative mantra you intend to achieve.
A few bouquets would do
Flowers turn even the plainest of surfaces into natural beauty masterpieces. Adding a few bouquets to your furniture on the veranda will be quite some milestone in terms of decoration. It is important to ensure that if you are using fresh flowers you can regularly change them to prevent them from going bad and throwing the entire veranda in a smelly zone. Buying plastic flower mock-ups is a good, cheaper, and more convenient alternative. You will not need to change it as often and they will still exhibit the beauty.
Have good furniture
Believe it or not, something as basic as furniture is very important in decorating your veranda. Ensure you have a good set-up veranda that has a few seats and maybe a table (depending on how big your veranda is) that are classy, different, and intended for an exposed space. Having furniture here will add a decorative feel to your veranda and change it from a simple place you pass through as you enter the house to a place you can have a cold drink with a few friends on a warm summer afternoon.
Maintain a theme
Also vital is the need to maintain a theme throughout your veranda decorative process. This will start at the painting stage. Your painting, your furniture and your wall art must all come together under one umbrella of artistic expression. As we add other decorative elements one by one- including the furniture, wall art, pillow covers and even the flowers and other potted plants, let us be sure that the theme dream we had at the beginning is what we will work with till the end.
It is important to note that the maintenance of your veranda is just as important an aspect of decorations as any other listed above. Ensure you clean your veranda and all elements regularly and carefully. Avoid adding anything that might compromise the well being of your verandas such as broken bottles and unattended trash. This will not only make your veranda look unpleasant but will make it a health hazard as well. Keep your veranda clean- this is the most basic aspect of decorating your veranda.
The veranda is a very key place in the home and ensuring it looks clean and good all the time is very vital to ensure the whole home is decorated and well maintained. Never ignore your veranda when it comes to decorating and making it look good. Pay special attention to the veranda because of its exposure to external elements.
