Decorating a Gazebo
It’s not enough to order a beautiful wrought iron or wooden gazebo for the backyard. Once the structure is in place, the homeowner needs to think about how to decorate the space so that it’s functional and attractive. Here are some ideas that will accomplish those goals.
Many designs for patio furniture will work equally well when it comes to furnishing the gazebo. To ensure the look is unified, consider investing in furnishings that are from the same materials as the structure.
For example, wrought iron furnishings that are painted or finished in the same color will blend in nicely. Add in cushions made from waterproof materials and the basics of the gazebo decoration will be in place.
The gazebo details already add some visual interest, but no rule says the homeowner can’t build on that foundation. One way to manage the task is to utilize accents like climbing vines or blooms made of the same metal as the structure.
Those can be affixed around entrances, over windows, or even used as borders along the walls. Paint these accents in a color that work well with the primary shade of the gazebo and it will be hard to go wrong.
Adding some light source will make that easy. Consider the idea of installing a wrought iron candle chandelier in the gazebo ceiling. Make sure that the installation makes it easy to raise and lower the light since it will be necessary to replace the candles from time to time.
If more subdued lighting is desired, adding a few candle sconces along the walls will provide just the right touch. Those sconces will double as wall art when not in use.There are plenty of ways to make sure the gazebo decoration provides beauty and function to the back yard.
Take the time to consider what elements would provide comfortable seating, make the space more appealing to the eye, and also be easy to maintain. With a little planning and attention to detail, it won’t take long to identify the right elements to include in the decorating scheme.
