Ways To Decorate A Portable Gazebo

Outdoor Furniture GazeboThese days just about anyone can create useable outdoor living space. If yard dimensions allow, a portable metal-framed structure is an excellent choice. Most include weatherproof fabric that can be drawn for privacy as well as screened fabric for insect control. Try these creative ways to decorate a portable gazebo, and make it a true extension of your indoor living space.

Decorate the Ground with an Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Before placing furniture in a portable gazebo, consider the surface beneath. If the ground is concrete, decorate while making the space more comfy with the help of an indoor/outdoor rug. If the portable gazebo will be placed directly on the ground, place a sheet of treated wood down first. Cover the wood with an indoor/outdoor rug. This will provide a more level surface and make it look more like an indoor space. It is not necessary to place a portable gazebo on a concrete patio or wooden deck. Save those areas for grilling and enjoying full sun.

Add Comfy Indoor/Outdoor Furniture and Accessories

When planning to decorate a portable gazebo, comfortable seating and a center table is a must. Consider weather-resistant wicker with weatherproof cushions, and be sure to add indoor/outdoor throw pillows to add color, comfort and style. Instead of using side tables, add a center dining table or coffee table. Decorate a table of choice with a vase of fresh cut flowers, a wicker basket of fresh fruit or a potted shade-loving plant. This practical way to decorate will make the portable gazebo feel like a real part of the home instead of just a glorified tent.

Ways to Decorate for Greater Privacy

When more privacy is desired in a portable gazebo, do not draw the drapes and destroy the view along with any chance of a breeze. Decorate around it with tall-growing ornamental grass. It will allow breezes to pass through the portable gazebo while providing a new level of privacy - right where it is needed. This is especially helpful when neighbors are close and seclusion is greatly lacking. The grass will serve as a natural wall that can grow quite high, depending on the variety. Add color by planting low-growing shade-loving flowers in the foreground, and enjoy this lovely outdoor area for entertaining and relaxing anytime of the day or night.
