It’s officially acceptable to replace the sweaters in your closet with swimsuits, which also means it’s finally time to get back outside. If you foresee an outdoor furniture shopping spree in your near future, bookmark IKEA’s April sale for a guilt-free experience. The brand is offering deals on several eco-friendly products—including items that are ethically sourced, made from natural materials, and energy-efficient—through April 30 in celebration of Earth Month. With savings up to 50% off, snag some of these summer-friendly items over the next few weeks. 

Hit the Deck 

Easy to lay and easier to disassemble, IKEA’s outdoor decking is an affordable option for a patio upgrade, whether you’re a homeowner or renter. Plus the modular system makes it simple to outfit anything from a tiny balcony to a wraparound terrace. 

Cue the Lights 

Switching to LED bulbs is great for two reasons: They conserve up to 80% more energy than traditional lighting (ideal for the planet), and that results in a lower electric bill (ideal for you). 

Grab Some Greens

Even if you only have a few square feet to work with, incorporating plants throughout your outside space adds layers of texture, color, and depth, whether it’s a small cluster of potted succulents or a tower of tropical species. 

Stay in the Shade

Sunburn blues get you down last season? Invest in an oversize umbrella. Because the canopy and frame are sold separately, you can switch up the style at any time of the year.

Set the Table

From morning coffee to an afternoon aperitif, a bistro dining set turns any alfresco situation into a chic café setting. Even better, these pieces are foldable, so you can stow them away when it’s time to close up shop for the year.
