Putting the pretty in your patio may be a bit puzzling for some homeowners. But with these 5 easy and creative patio ideas, you can instantly get a pretty patio without the fuss.
Make a Mosaic
If you feel that sticking to one patio surface will make your outdoors look dull, then match the vibrancy of your outdoors with an interesting mosaic. It’ll be easier if you already have the habit of collecting different rocks and stones to put in your mosaic.
If a mosaic looks too abstract, then another alternative design idea for your patio are rock flowers. Simply arranging them in a flower design by your patio makes up for a no-maintenance, frills-free design that still catches the eye of a passerby.
If you’ve got wood lying around, why not use this as a patio surface material instead. Use it as a faux bridge of sorts over a dry stream and you’ve got a landscaping feature at no cost. What’s more is that, even as the wood slowly merges itself with the earth, it’ll give your garden a rustic chic look.
Glow-in-the-Dark Stone Path
Pick smooth stones to partially bury and serve as steps outdoors. Not only does it encourage exploration, you’ll also be able to lessen your need for ambient lights when you paint it with a luminescent paint that glows after dark. Stick a few other stones in some nooks and crannies and you’ll be able to recreate a clandestine haven for fairies and other mystical creatures.
Glow-in-the-dark stones do provide light. However, one thing they do not provide is warmth. Your outdoors may look inviting but without warmth, it’ll simply be a nice view to look out at during chilly nights. Put a fire pit in a convenient place near your outdoor seating area and make it welcoming even in the most unforgiving cold nights.
Your patio need not look like a stereotypical one. By trying one or two of these easy and creative patio ideas, you can transform your patio into a pretty place for you to pander and wander in.
