If you need patio ideas that involve some sort of covering, you'll have plenty to choose from. Traditional roofs cover many patios, some are more of an awning style, and others still have no real roof, instead they choose seating that has an umbrella that will provide protection from the elements. These patio ideas can be big or small, and can be adapted to just about any space. Awnings can be detachable or permanent, and can create a real extension of your home.
A good number patio ideas will include investing in lots of great flowers. Pick up intriguing containers to put on the patio, kinds with color and texture. Next fill the pots with herbs such as basil, mint, oregano and cilantro. A majority of these will add an enjoyable scent as well as produce fresh cuttings for salads and also other dishes. There are lots of vegetables that also do remarkably in containers. Raising the vegetables in baskets also makes them easier to maintain and keep bug free.
There are many different kinds of material to consider when looking for patio ideas. The most important elements of the patio would be the colours, textures and designs used: if this works, the patio could be bare and still look inviting and comfortable. Cobbles, flagstone, tiles and cladding are all different ideas to look at, just remember to first look at their qualities before making a decision. Compare their durability, looks, textures, colours and strength.
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.
When choosing from these hundreds of patio ideas it is vital of course to take your lifestyle, and that of your family, into account. People use their patios for many different purposes, from formal entertaining to simply relaxing. It is important to consider what the primary purpose of the patio will be, and to tailor your patio ideas to that use.
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.
