Decorating Vinyl Patios and Decks with the Color of the Year

What is “Greenery”?

Pantone’s greenery is a soft, mellow, but cheerful shade. It’s not as bright as a grassy hue, but has been tempered down by tones of yellow. You can likely find it, or similar shades at garden stores, home improvement and renovation centers, fabric stores, even furniture stores. So where should you use “greenery” on your vinyl patio or deck?

Use “Greenery” As Shade

Gone are the boring days of taupe – today’s shades and umbrellas offer vibrant hues, including those colors that mimic greenery. Look for tones of green in home improvement stores and even places like Walmart and Target that offer outdoor furnishings.

Pots, Planters, and Plants

You can quickly spruce up vinyl decks and patios with “greenery” – all you need is a few pots, planters, or some plants. For an added pop of color, pair pots with yellows, reds, even purples.

Cushions and Fabrics for Vinyl Patios and Decks

One place where you can find shades of greenery is the fabric store, so if you or a member of your family are handy with a sewing machine you’re all set. If sewing is not your forte, consider checking out stores that sell outdoor furnishings and cushions for shades of greenery.

Invest in Accessories

If you’re all set for furniture, pots, plants and cushions, then take a look at your accessories. Everything from barbecue tools, plates, cups and napkins can use a bit of color to help your vinyl patio or deck feel fresher and more festive. Alternatively, look for wall art, area rugs, even paper lanterns to help vinyl patios and decks feel just like home.

Paint Some Furniture

For larger spaces with multiple seating areas, consider repainting a few metal chairs or wooden tables. You can find a wide range of colors at home improvement stores. While you might gravitate towards matching sets in the same color, try painting a few items in different colors, including “greenery” – you’ll love the result.

Upgrading the components of your deck or patio will make everything feel new, unless, that is, your patio is in shabby shape. If it is, consider installing a new vinyl membrane to help your space shine.
