With the warmer weather in full swing, a stylish patio is the place to be. Kirkland's offers a variety of home décor pieces that can help you take advantage of your backyard this year. With these style tips, you can take the comfort of your living room to your patio.
Whether it's a new set of colorful cushions, delicate lanterns or other accessories, your patio will be event-ready for any outside plans this season.
Kirkland's buyer Carol Stitz offers the scoop on this summer's hottest trends in outdoor furniture and accessories:
- Classic wicker: Wicker is in, but this classic piece doesn't need to go it alone. Play with brighter color pairings by mixing and matching outdoor cushions.
- Bright colors: Be on the lookout for bright oranges, blues and lime greens that offset tans and browns. An easy way to brighten up your outdoor space is by adding pillows and cushions that are patterned or in bright, bold colors.
- Outdoor lights: Carry on with your outdoor festivities, even after the sun goes down, with string lights or lanterns. Kirkland's Mason Jar String Lights and Antiqued White Lantern are inexpensive ways to add some romance and twinkle to your patio.
- Add sound: Set bird feeders, wind chimes and clocks outside to give the backyard an added pulse.
But at the end of the day, you should look for both price and quality when purchasing new pieces for a patio set.
"You're going to want sturdy, durable furniture that can last outdoors," Stitz said. "You never want to compromise on comfort or quality, and when you can get both at a great price … that's the dream."
Keep your eyes peeled later this year for the latest trends as Kirkland's introduces new and exciting pieces to its outdoor product line.
"We have plunged into the outdoor product market with a variety of unique offerings at great prices," Stitz said. "And it's only going to get better and more colorful from here."
