You want to follow the same decor rules you use indoors for your outdoor area when creating either a dining or living room space. Grounding your space with a mat or rug makes it feel homey.

It comes in so many beautiful colours including black and metallic to give your planters a real upscale look. Just throw a few bricks in the bottoms for stability and you are ready to add soil and flowers.
