Nowadays, finding a house in the city with a patio where you can breathe in some air or just appreciate the view is like looking for a needle in a haystack so if you have one, do make the most out of it! If you think that modest outdoor space is good for nothing, think again. With just a little bit of fixing, you can turn your unused patio into the best hangout place everyone will love!
So before your patio withers out beyond repair, here are some tips and tricks to consider that can make your patio come to life as the perfect lazy day place to be!
Don’t forget about the floors
More often than not, the floors get overlooked in the decor planning process, so why not focus the attention on the floors for once? Give your patio some spunk with patterned floors, a laid back look with some throw pillows and an oversized comfortable mat to gather around in with your closest buddies on a Saturday night.
Turn up the fun factor!
The patio is one of the best places in your house to chill, relax and just have fun with your friends and family so it’s always a good idea to reflect this onto the patio’s decor. Arrange some white 1960s inspired furniture with fresh and colourful table cloths and some throw pillows to complete the relaxed look.
It’s all about the greens
The whole point of having a patio is experiencing the outdoors with the all too familiar comfort of indoor furniture. So after you’ve chosen your chairs, tables, pillows and other decorative objects, make sure to add some of the elements of life into your patio – plants!
Just because a patch of land in your home is covered in weed or requires too much work to be put back in use doesn’t mean you should just shrug it off. You may not be able to see it just yet but there may be a paradise hiding underneath the mess. Give it a little love and time and you’ll end up with a pretty patio.
