Furnish the space with stylish, weather-resistant pieces. This long trestle table’s crisscross base mimics the diamond floor pattern, and the white finish maintains a minimal look. The chairs, made of clear-sealed metal, add a touch of industrial chic, and they stack for easy storage. Add a hanging lantern for a touch of elegance.

Ground the room with a graphic floor design. Instead of an outdoor rug, which can be pricey, use porch or floor paint to create your own pattern. To make this diamond pattern, we coated the entire floor with pale green porch paint. After it dried, we used painters tape to outline a design, and then filled in with darker greens.
