With a little careful decorating a Patio can become an outdoor extension of your homes living room. Considerations for decorating your patio include lounge furniture, dining table, patio chairs and mood lighting. The choices depend on whether you want to specialise your patio for outdoor entertaining or personal relaxation.
Carefully Arrange Your Patio Furniture
To relax comfortably in your patio you need to add suitable furniture which is arranged in a practical way. Ensure that your patio furnishings are arranged with consideration for how many people will be inside at once, to allow for open spaces to move around in. If your patio is close to your house try to colour coordinate with it and match the prevailing style.
To keep your patio furniture in good shape have covers ready for the more extreme weather (such as hail or heavy rainfall) and choose furniture that is designed for outdoor use. Furniture that is specially designed for patios is typically UV-protected. Always look for pillows that use materials which are resistant to moisture and mildew.
Decorate Your Patio to Reflect Your Tastes
To add a bit of culture to your Patio, decorate it with water colour paintings that have a special meaning to you. Hanging your favourite plants throughout the Patio in addition to this can really create a tranquil environment, perfect for quiet reading or relaxing with a tea in the morning. When selecting plants you need to consider the maintenance needs of the plant and whether it will survive in a patio environment (ensure it gets enough sunlight in its position).
