Patios. Wednesday , May 02nd , 2018 - 09:56:29 AM
One great decorative patio idea that just about anyone can afford to do is add some plants to the area. This can be in the form of hanging plants, potted plants, or if you have the ground to do it, plants that are put right into the ground. If you like flowers, planting some flowers will instantly add some color and style to the area that wasn't there before. Decorative planters also add a nice touch, but if you are working on budget you can stick with just the dirt in the ground to create a great look!
How about a hot tub designed to go with your patio? Again, this is not a cheap patio idea but one that will make your patio a very popular place all year long. If you want to do something like this just consult your local hot tub store and they will be able to give you some great ideas on how to incorporate the hot tub - patio design.
A attractively planned outdoor patio not merely expands a property's outside living area, but expresses the owners tastes and individuality. Check on the web for inspiration for boosting backyard living, working with small areas, options for renovations and problem solving patio ideas.
Wrap up your paper research. It's time to go see the real world. A simple look around your neighborhood will open up your eyes but don't stop there. Public parks and pedestrian malls can inspire you too. Actually seeing how outdoor patio ideas are incorporated into real life designs will help concrete your own idea. You will see how the different types of patio furniture and ground can interact to give you the ambiance you want to create.
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.
One last patio idea to add to all your patio ideas. It's a hot summer's night (we wish!) and you're sipping a glass of something chilled. On the wall you've given some plants the night off. Instead you've replace the 'planted' pot with an empty one. Added a small saucer to the bottom to block the drainage hole and placed a citronella candle on a bed of sand. The flickering glow of the candle dances over the walls and keeps those blasted midges away - all at the same time.
