Most people focus on the inside of their home, forgetting the space that’s used most during the summer. Your patio is the perfect spot for entertaining and soaking in those extra hours of daylight. With the right design, your patio can be transformed into a fully functional living space.
Bring the Inside Out
One of the biggest trends right now focuses on making your patio an extension of your indoor living space. This can be accomplished with matching furniture, colors, and textures. If possible, consider using the same tile on your patio as used inside your home. This helps complete the look.
Update Your Patio Furniture
Replace your old wicker furniture with new, modern versions. Consider spending a little extra on your patio furniture this year. The pieces will look better, and likely last longer than less expensive models. You’ll want to make sure that the pieces you purchase are waterproof. This helps protect them from damage caused by inclement weather.
Decorate With Planters
Strategically placed planters add a splash of color and charm to your patio. For the most dramatic result, choose large planters in matching colors.
There’s nothing as relaxing or soothing as the sound of running water. Adding a fountain or water feature to your patio not only looks good; it also brings a touch of tranquility to your outdoor living space. This might be just what you need to relax after a long day.
Outdoor lighting increases the safety of your home and allows you to spend more time outdoors. It also provides a dramatic display for your outdoor living space. Outdoor lighting is available in a wide range of colors and styles.
