Outdoor Decorating for Renters

Few things are better than a space that you can absolutely call your own. When renting an apartment home at Windscape Apartment Homes, depending on which floor plan you’ve chosen to meet your needs, each apartment comes with either a private patio or balcony for you to enjoy. Unless you’ve chosen one of our furnished apartments, the patio or balcony will come clean and bare for you to make your own. 

That’s why we’ve created a list of ways to decorate your outside area for you to enjoy for years to come! 

Hanging or Potted Plants 

Hanging or potted plants are always a safe way to go when decorating your outside area. Plants are an easy way to bring your space to life with little cost. Along with improving the aesthetic of your area, plants can actually improve your mood, helping create and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy. 

Also, consider nurturing a small patio or balcony garden! Not only does your mood improve, but you will also be able to harvest small herbs or vegetables, thus saving money. 

String Lights 

When spending time in your outdoor area, eventually the sun will go down and you’ll have a need for lighting, especially if you’ll want to continue spending your time outside. String lights are a great way to brighten up your space for when the sun sets! Plus, string lights really add a certain aesthetic to your back area. 

Your outdoor area will have a light fixture installed, but using string lights can really set the tone for stepping up your outside look. 


The best way to lounge outside is with outdoor furniture! Your furniture can be as simple or as extravagant as you like! Add some chairs, a table or an outdoor couch, and you’re good to go. Outdoor furniture can transform a space and allow you to utilize your full apartment home to the best of your ability. 


Accessories can really bring your space together! You also don’t have to spend a ton to create a beautiful space. If you have a couch or chairs, add some outdoor throw pillows. If you want to keep it minimal, just add an outdoor rug. Consider stools or vases on tables for a fun look and feel! 

However, we always recommend that you keep things protected for whenever the weather worsens. 


You can never have too much storage (at least we think so!). When incorporating storage into your outdoor space, it’s important to try to use your storage to your advantage. Add a storage bench that can act as storage and a bench when you need it! Try an outdoor table with drawer storage to help store outside items without losing them inside your home.

What Our Residents Have To Say

Good Location, Friendly and Accommodating Staff. Three-year resident. The property is located a single right turn from the interstate, which makes getting to work easy. The staff work with you if situations come up (in my case, passing of family member). The apartments are well maintained, clean, and the facilities are available at most reasonable hours (the gym and laundry I believe are available 24/7). Will probably end up staying till I purchase a home (whenever that ends up…).
