Patio Design Tips

Your patio is a great spot for enjoying the lovely days and evenings of summer, gathering with friends and family, or relaxing in your private nook. So make it an attractive spot that beckons you to come outside. Here are a few ways you can make your patio lovely.

Make it private…

Privacy is a must for any patio. Of course, if you have open space and no nearby neighbors, you won’t have to think about privacy as much.

  • If your neighbors are less than a stone’s throw away, a lattice, vine-covered trellis, or some fence panels are desirable.
  • Even a table umbrella can thwart nosy neighbors who might peer into your patio from their second-story window.

Make it restful…

  • Plants of any kind add to a relaxing setting. An easy way to add greenery to your patio is to have a potted herb garden. Herbs are easy to start and grow well in containers. What’s the side benefit? Since the herbs are on the patio, it’s easy to step outside and cut some fresh herbs to use in your cooking!
  • A bubbling fountain melts away stress.
  • String lights or other soft lighting imparts a cozy ambiance after sunset.

Make it comfortable…

Your outdoor furniture has a lot to do with how much you use your patio, so make it comfortable and appealing.

  • Provide comfortable seating, like Adirondack chairs, rockers, or gliders made from durable poly lumber.
  • Cushioned outdoor furniture makes a great way to gather around a coffee table or fire pit.
  • Add a distinctive dining set to enjoy al fresco meals.
  • Comfy pillows create a homey look and make a great headrest if you decide to stretch out.
  • Provide some shade so you can enjoy your patio at any time of the day. A pergola covered with vines, a pavilion, or a shade sail can keep you from broiling in the sun.
  • Outdoor rugs add color and texture to a patio and make a soft surface for your feet.
