Patio Design Essentials

A great outdoor space is the backdrop to creating memories of sunny, summer days and fun-filled evenings. When designing this space, make sure it’s both functional as well inviting since it’s the ideal environment for friends and family to spend time together. To achieve the perfect outdoor living space, try defining the area with an outdoor rug – not only does this element help to define the area, it also helps to establish traffic patterns for easy navigation. Then add a variety of seating, such as benches, stools or even an outdoor couch! Once this is complete, you can soften the look with cushions, pillows and small accessories. But as day turns to night, you will need outdoor lighting and a touch of entertainment, so try to add a fire source for a feaux camping feel or an outdoor music system for summer parties. Use these tips to transform your space for warm weather and good times.
