How to Decorate Your Deck on a Budget


Maximize the appeal and comfort of your deck with these simple, low-cost tips.

Now that May is finally here, it’s time to start enjoying some much-needed outdoor time. Your deck is the perfect place to catch some rays and amp up your vitamin D intake. However, to maximize the appeal and comfort of your deck, you need to add some furniture and decorations. Here’s how you can create your dream deck while working with a tight budget.


Deck furniture is not cheap. If you splurge on outdoor furniture that starts to fall apart after a year or two, you may be discouraged from spending more money on outdoor seating. The best approach to this is to do your research. Expensive furniture doesn’t always necessarily mean highest-quality. Make sure that when you’re shopping for furniture, you read reviews for the products that interest you. You want your deck furniture to last a reasonable amount of time, so make sure you’re buying from the best manufacturers. Another good rule of thumb is always remembering to cover your deck furniture when you’re not using it, especially in extreme conditions.

Container Gardens

No matter how small your deck may be, a container garden is a fantastic way to add color and freshness to your outdoor space. The best part about container gardens is that you don’t have to have a green thumb to plant them! Container gardens come in all shapes and sizes that will suit any part of your deck railings. The best plants for deck container gardens are petunias, geraniums, snapdragons, ornamental grasses, impatiens, begonias, and violets.


The lighting of your deck is a small detail that makes an incredible amount of difference. Most people only think to use their decks during the day, but with the right lighting, your deck parties will last all night long. Hanging garden lights or string lights are a great option for creating a warm, welcoming space for guests. Solar lighting is another popular outdoor lighting option that will help illuminate your deck while saving you a few energy dollars at the same time.
