The patio tends to be one of the most used areas of a home during the warmer weathers. Therefore, it only makes sense to create a personalized space that will bring together your outdoor décor and perfectly pair it with your indoor aesthetics. The following patio ideas will perfectly elevate you’re your outdoor area, giving you the perfect backyard.
Do not limit yourself, when it comes to your outdoor patio decor. Look out for weathered wood for that natural feel that is still edgy and fun. Not only will it appear put together, but it will stand against the elements that the area will have to endure. If you can’t find weathered wood, consider faux wood that is actually made out of metal. The aesthetics will look the same but will not ruin with the weather.
Comfort is key when you want to work your patio décor. Consider using an outdoor sofa and/or accent chairs to complete the look. You may even want to add a rug to allow your living room to flow into your patio area. Doing so will create a double dimensional area.
The fireplace does not need to remain indoors, you can actually have a lavish outdoor fireplace with little to no effort. The key is knowing your space and how big of a fireplace you can have. The bigger your patio is the larger and more-grand your fireplace can be. If you have a smaller area, consider having a bowl-like fireplace that adds the warmth you seek without taking space.
Wicker is an excellent furniture material for the outdoor patio area because of how well it appears and how well it will withstand the weather. If you aren’t a fan of using wicker, contemplate having at least one or two wicker chairs for that traditional appeal.
Pops of Color
We love the idea of having pops of color anywhere in the home, the patio is no exception. Adding pops of color into your décor could be exactly what the space needs to come full circle and feel comfortable yet trendy.
Whether you are using your backyard patio during the day or the evenings there’s a large possibility you will need lighting. Good lighting doesn’t just come in handy when you are using the space, but it will come in handy for décor purposes. Add different light fixtures that brighten the space yet bring a warmth almost inviting feel to the area.
Large seating bench
If you have a large family or simply enjoy entertaining, often having a large seating bench is one idea you can’t pass up. The large seating area will allow you to have enough room for everyone while having a statement piece that enhances the space. Add colorful cushions or patterned ones of a trendy element.
Patio Mini Bar
If you have the advantage of having a larger patio and don’t know how to cover as much foot space as possible you may want to consider adding a mini bar. Outdoor bars have become all the rave due to their ability to transform an outdoor space into an entertainment area. Incorporate a mini bar to bring a “party bar” that works for you and your guests.
Just like a mini bar will allow entertainment to become easier due to it being closer, having a patio kitchen will do the same. Why keep your kitchen indoors only when you can have one outdoors as well. When shopping for outdoor kitchen appliances ensure to purchase steel pieces that will withstand the weather. Additionally, consider covering your appliances when not in use to keep them fresh all year round.
Keep it elegant and keep it sweet with a stylish table that adds that hint of chic in any size space. Pair with a few fun seats for a tasteful touch that will bring that hint of modern to the space that may be needed.
Keep it Simple
Even though lavish and chic are always a good idea, sometimes a space is in simple need of nothing but a touch of simple. Keep the décor minimal and sweet to not only make the space feel larger but to bring that classic element to the patio space.
We love contemporary décor because of how personal it is for the homeowner. The ability to have a personalized space that is still trendy tends to be one of the best ways to bring that hint of character without adding or removing too many elements.
