Top 10 covered patio decoration tips

Do you have a (new) outdoor patio, porch or garden room, but don’t know where to start decorating? We’re here to help! In this blog, we provide you with 10 useful tips on how to decorate your covered patio, porch and/or garden room.

#10 Determine its purpose

Start by determining the purpose of the garden shelter. Do you want to use the space for dining, lounging, or perhaps both? When it comes to decorating covered patios, the general advice is ‘less is more’. So, if the space is relatively small, avoid trying to include too much. Instead, have the courage to make a choice in terms of function.

#9 Set the ambiance

To create a cozy ambiance for your veranda, it’s important to choose a specific style and incorporate it in various elements throughout the space. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern, charmingly rustic, or a boho Ibiza style, the possibilities are endless! If you’re not sure where to start, take a look at our blog featuring 10 veranda inspiration ideas to discover what suits you best!


#8 Embrace colour

Aligned with the style you choose, it’s also important to consider the colour, since they strongly influence the overall look of your covered patio. Our advice is to first select one or two base colours. These colours will be the most prominent in your veranda, such as the colour of your flooring, the materials of your garden furniture, and the veranda itself.

Next, pick an accent colour that you love and want to incorporate into various elements, such as a wall, rug, or piece of furniture. Additionally, you can also choose an accent colour for accessories, for instance. These three to four colors can either be harmonious or contrasting, depending on your personal preference and whether you want to make a statement or create a more serene atmosphere.

#7 Choose your garden furniture

Teak, rope, aluminum, rattan – nowadays, there are endless options when it comes to garden furniture. Since furniture often takes up the most prominent space in your porch setup, it’s crucial to choose materials that align with the ambiance you want to create. For instance, teak and rattan fit well in a rustic veranda, while aluminum, teak, or rope might be better suited for a modern one.

#6 Define your eyecarcher

To create a sense of unity, we recommend selecting a single captivating focal point. This is the item that will define your outdoor covered patio decoration. It can be anything you fancy – think of a luxurious chair, a unique painting, or a large rug. Choose something that truly resonates with you. It will serve as the foundation for the rest of your veranda’s design. Haven’t decided on your colour scheme yet? Then your chosen eyecatcher might just offer the inspiration you need for your colour palette.


#5 Add stylish decoration

A luxurious outdoor patio isn’t complete without decoration! How about adding a lovely outdoor rug under your lounge or dining set to create a homely atmosphere? Stylish decorative cushions, elegant trays, and captivating coffee table books should also find their place. Don’t forget to decorate the walls of your veranda as well. A beautiful painting, a unique lamp, or other artworks can instantly make your patio feel cozier.

To ensure a cohesive look, it’s important to consider your chosen style and colour palette when shopping for both large and small outdoor accessories. If you don’t do this, it can quickly appear cluttered. Additionally, we recommend opting for a few larger items instead of numerous smaller accessories. Too many small items can make your covered patio feel crowded.


#3 Go green

The patio cover setup is not complete without some greenery! Adding plants to your veranda connects it much better to the rest of your garden. Therefore, choose some beautiful plants to give your outdoor room more ambiance. Keep in mind the situation of your covered patio and where the plants will be placed. If the cover, for instance, cannot be closed, it’s important to opt for winter-resistant plants or bring them indoors during colder periods. Your landscaper and/or local garden center can provide you with more information for sure.

#2 Connect with your living room

Apart from connecting with the garden, it’s also ideal to have your patio cover seamlessly integrate with your living room, especially if they are adjacent. This way, you create more tranquility and harmony between your indoor and outdoor spaces. The easiest way to achieve this is by aligning the style you’ve chosen for your covered patio with your interior design. Additionally, you can consider this while selecting your colour palette by opting for several similar shades.

#1 Ensure year-round comfort

Ensure your covered patio design is winter-ready so you can relish your own garden room even during colder seasons. Consider investing in a cozy or stylish design heater to keep you warm during the winter. Turn on the ambient lights, snuggle under a lovely blanket, and savor a cup of hot cocoa amidst the wintery weather.
