Your patio should be one of your all-time favorite places at home.
It is the best spot in your home for entertaining friends and family with game nights, barbeques, and pool parties. It should be one of the most inviting areas of your home. So, if yours is a little worse for wear or has more cobwebs than corn on the cob, don’t worry – this article is here to help you.
Upgrade your outdoor space by following these seven simple tips below. These tips are made to elevate your patio space, without you needing to get a whole new mortgage. They’re simple, yet effective, and you’ll have so much fun implementing any one of them.
Outdoor or potted plants are the perfect addition to any outdoor space.
Although you are already outside, they balance an outdoor space and ensure it doesn’t feel cold or clinical.
Greenery adds a gorgeous boost of freshness to your patio, but don’t stop at green – growing beautiful flowers in vibrant colors can instantly make your space feel like home. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, choose low-maintenance plants that are easy to grow.
Even if your nearest neighbors are miles away, outdoor curtains are always a fabulous idea.
They don’t just provide privacy. Billowing curtains, especially the sheer type, are instantly relaxing to watch and they provide shade so you can enjoy the outdoors without worrying about sunburn.
Make your patio feel like another gorgeous room in your house by choosing curtains in the perfect color scheme.
Outdoor areas are so multifunctional these days.
We were all cooped up in our homes for so long that we came up with every excuse to spend more time outside. The truth is you don’t need an excuse – you just need a comfortable and stylish outdoor space.
Designate zones in your outdoor space and dedicate spaces for dining, lounging, and possibly even a reading nook. It’s up to you what you’d like to use each space for, just use rugs and tiling to cleverly demarcate each area.
Let The Light In
Patios need to be protected from the elements.
While sunlight is always appreciated in any space, creating balance is also important. Use alternating custom acrylic sheets on your patio roof to allow enough sunlight in to create the look you’re after, without going too far.
By using just the right amount of sheets, you can create a happy space, filled with natural light. Measure your roof space and decide how many sheets would best suit your space.
No patio space would be complete with a gorgeous statement lighting piece.
That doesn’t have to mean something expensive or outlandish; it should simply be eye-catching and trendy. Achieving that look is much easier than you may think.
Look online for a wide range of stunning options, choose a few that would best suit your patio, and then cleverly create mock-up images of how each one would look in your space.
Embrace Natural Materials
Creating a stylish patio may seem intimidating at first – but once you realize that every part of it can get broken down into smaller steps, it becomes a lot more exciting and infinitely more doable.
One of the easiest ways to curate an effortlessly stylish patio space is by choosing the best materials for the job – and for lovely outdoor areas; that means all things natural!
Celebrate and embrace the beauty of rattan, wood, stone, and a neutral color palette.
People spend so much time entertaining, especially since the pandemic.
We all realized how much we were taking for granted before, which is why we see each other as often as we possibly can these days – no one wants to miss a minute of enjoying time spent with friends and family.
Sitting outside on the patio, watching your family and friends chat and laugh together, gives you an almost indescribable feeling of pure joy. The only thing that can ruin that feeling of utter contentment is an uncomfortable chair!
Take the time to choose patio furniture that is as comfortable as it is beautiful.
See, how simple (yet stunning) do those ideas sound?
Don’t be intimidated by interior or exterior design – there are multiple examples of what a beautiful outdoor space can look like – all you need to do is pick the one that puts the biggest smile on your face.
