( — December 20, 2017) — Gazebos are the easiest way to beautify your property. They add an intimate feeling and they are perfect if you want to stay out and admire the rain while reading a book. They can also be the ideal place for an outside meal and you can decorate them any way you want.

Gazebos are incredibly popular, and despite the fact that they are very common, they can be very different depending on how you choose to personalize them. If you want to make your gazebo the perfect escape spot, take a look at these tips.

Add some light

A gazebo can be very romantic at night, but you still need some other source of light besides the moon. If you want something cheaper you can simply add some candles. Just make sure that you take some safety measures as well, you do not want to cause a fire.

However, there are even more options if there is electricity available. You can bring your own lamps or maybe decorate the entire space with some fairly light that will make everything seem cozier.

Furnish your gazebo

Gazebos are usually treated as outdoor places, but you should not let that stop you from adding furniture. It can be something simple like an outdoor table and some lawn chairs, or you can do more than that and mount a hammock or some sofas that are weatherproofed. You can even add a small carpet or some cushions to make the place even more comfortable. Just make sure that the furniture brought by you won’t be too affected by the weather, since a gazebo is not perfectly sheltered.

Another nice touch would be curtains. They are beautiful as well as practical. Just think of the sunset light diffused by those curtains while you read a book in a gazebo. Additionally, curtains will stop insects from getting in and they could even protect your privacy if you do not want to be seen.

Make birds come to you

What could be more whimsical than having a few birds sing while you rest in your gazebo? Birds will come if you add a bird feeder or a bird bath next to your gazebo. Add those and you will be able to make some feathered friends right in own yard.

Bring some plants

Plants are perfect for gazebos and they will make them feel like a part of nature. Try to plant so vines since those will grow around your gazebo and enhance the beauty of it. Do not be afraid to plant flowers around it as well. Not only that they are colorful and will make you feel cheerful, but their pleasant scent will make your days more agreeable.

If you do not feel like doing some gardening, you can always just bring some vases with fresh cut flowers in your gazebo. They will look and smell just as good and you won’t have to worry about taking care of them.
