6 IDEAS FOR DECORATING YOUR OUTDOOR WALLS
Decorating your outdoor space adds so much more to a home and makes the most of the unused yard and patio space, allowing you to enjoy it during the cooler summer evenings.
The walls of your outdoor space shouldn’t look run-down, so here are some ways you can add a beautiful touch, according to IKEA.
1. Feature wall of greenery
This is the most obvious choice when you think ‘outdoors’ and ‘garden’. However, it’s also an underrated way to trick your exterior spaces!
A concrete wall can be easily transformed into a green feature haven. Make sure to use the native plants that can withstand heat and humidity.
IKEA’s collection of vertical planters or self-watering planters will make the job easier.
2. A wall mural
Here’s your chance to call on the artists in the family or even a friend who can do a lovely mural for your outdoors
This way, you can add a modern-day street-art aesthetic to your backyard wall or patio. If paint is just too messy, a custom sign made of aluminium pointing to the pool will take it to the next level!
3. A timepiece
The patio is made for lounging and relaxation while looking over your backyard.
A simple, stylish outdoor clock will anchor the cosy area, giving it a rustic ambience.
Add lanterns and settle in for a night of warmth and light!
4. Decorate with objects
Made for the outdoors, something like a surfboard can be a wonderful decoration.
If you are passionate about the beaches, this will take you right back to those precious memories.

5. A faux outdoor mantel
Mantels aren’t only for the holidays! A narrow table can double as a mantel, and a few decorative pieces will go a long way!
Utilise a large mirror to create a focal point on the patio and place a few plants and decorative items from IKEA’s wonderful collections to enhance the visuals.
6. Use colour
Colour makes everything better, and this is a great way to make the outdoor space feel like a part of your home.
You can paint the outdoor walls to match the interior colour scheme, making the two spaces achieve a coordinated harmony.
