Does your patio lack the buzz and vivacious you see in home magazines? Envy no more for we bring you 4 design details that will surely make your patio pop and look full of life!
Often overlooked and simply treaded upon, a patio surface highly contributes to the definition of your outdoor space. Choose a patio material that is durable against the elements yet easy to maintain. If possible, install it in a vibrant shade that packs a punch for great visual detail. Now it’s no longer a mere open space, it’s a well-defined territory.
What’s the use of a well-defined territory if you can only enjoy it very early in the morning or late at night when the sun’s heat isn’t too much, right? Let a patio cover provide ample shade for your outdoor area. You can choose a mobile umbrella, a semi-patio cover like a pergola or lattice or a solid patio cover which extends your roofline.
Now that you’ve got the shade element covered, what happens to those cold summer nights? Installing a fire pit is the answer. If you’re more of a night owl and love to stay out stargazing but can’t because of the chill, having a fire pit to provide warmth will make your outdoor room hospitable even in the cold of the night.
Do you have friendly neighbors who are just too friendly and keen to know you more? If you value your privacy, setting up some privacy screens can keep your home activities safe from curious eyes. Now your privacy screens not need be eyesores in your yard. You can have tall perennials planted at the perimeter of your house, some trellis covered with beautiful crawlers or even homemade murals or graffiti to provide enough interest for onlookers’ eyes and privacy for you!
