Spending time on your patio with family, friends, and neighbours can create memories that last a lifetime. Creating the perfect outdoor space can enhance the enjoyment of your home and increase its value. This article will review the best ways to turn your backyard patio into a fun and creative space that enhances the quality of your outdoor liesure time for years to come.
1. Patio Seating
Chaise lounges are a natural fit for poolside fun. However, you will want to choose light colors that compliment your patio or pool decking and provide plenty of seating options for family and guests.
Cloth and wicker sectionals can add a nice touch if you have room to spare. However, if space is an issue, you might consider a more compact arrangement such as a poolside patio table.
2. Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting can create a warm ambiance to keep your parties going well after dark. Outdoor lighting comes in various sizes and functions, including exterior flood lights, portable options like battery-powered or USB lamps, eco-friendly solar lighting that charges during the day, and even retro styles like tiki torches or pagoda lamps.
You will need to decide if a portable option is right for you. Multiple lighting sources should complement each other to create a perfect balance between function and style.
3. Fire Pits
A fire pit can serve as a central gathering place for family and friends to warm themselves on a brisk winter night while telling stories around the campfire. Fire pits bring loved ones into a circle and make great spaces for playing music, relaxing, and enjoying a beverage after a meal.
A fire pit can be a part of your landscape design and range from permanent concrete fixtures to portable fire bowls. Some fire pits can even run on biofuel, which burns clean and may be a concern for you if your location has any restrictions about backyard fires. Many fire pits are built with stone surfaces that can be used as tables or seating as desired.
4. Outdoor Grills and Kitchens
Outdoor dining has come a long way in recent years. Of course, portable grills have their place, but there is nothing quite like having your own built-in outdoor dining space that can turn a backyard barbeque get-together into an overwhelming success.
Cooking doesn’t have to be confined to the kitchen. With options like outdoor countertops and recessed grills, refrigerators, running water basins, and more, your outdoor kitchen doesn’t have to lack anything.
