Developing an inviting and tranquil place can be carried out cheaply. By just doing most of the job yourself is one to save plenty. To finish the patio make-over decorate it using climate protected garden furniture. Examine different home catalogues for patio ideas or check on the internet at pictures and patio designs.
Unless you've won the lottery recently, or you are one of those lucky people who get to work at home, most of your time during the day is probably spent at work. Even on weekends, most of us have so many errands and events to get to that we do not spend a lot of time lolling around.
A modern idea for decking is to make it black in color. There are new composite materials that can be stained by the manufacturer in a myriad of different colors. This staining will not fade and will not be affected by ultra violet light from the sun. It will maintain the as new appearance for many years and looks amazingly nice directly opposite an ultra-modern kitchen. Just imagine a white marble kitchen floor next to some beautiful jet-black decking - such a contrast will make any home's outside space look spectacular.
So if most of the time you have to spend in your patio is going to be at night, it only makes sense to design the patio so its a great place to be at night. This means you'll do things a bit differently than if you were designing it for the day, though almost all of these ideas work perfectly well for daytime use.
Some more cool ideas for your summer patio include incorporating a fountain or waterfall with your patio design. The sound of running water is always very relaxing and this type of addition to a patio is sure to take it to the next level. In addition to adding that feeling of tranquility, a fountain or waterfall will add value to your home's price when you decide to sell.
1) Light the way. The most basic part of the night patio is light. White Christmas string lights are a great solution, and there are also lots of unusual string lights, or bistro lights if you want something different. Don't forget candles, either, though you'll need tall candle holders to protect them from even a bit of breeze. You do not need so much light that you can read out on the patio, but you do want to be able to see well enough to recognize people, and to make sure your visitors can see where to walk safely. If your patio is at the end of a walkway, that means investing in some good solar path lights.
