Choosing a location for your patio is a difficult decision that requires you to weigh up the pros and cons of each alternative. Placing your patio next to a detached garage is a good way to take advantage of the shade. Having your patio adjacent to our house opens up service areas of your home when entertaining guests. Getting a nice coffee or bringing dinner items back and forth from the kitchen will be a lot easier if your patio is adjacent to your home, particularly in bad weather conditions. If you want to save money by avoiding purchasing an outdoor entertainment centre, having your patio adjacent o your home will allow you to enjoy the music without irritating the neighbours with excessively high volumes.
We all enjoy the great outdoors and the absence of indoor comforts can make outdoor patio spaces feel impersonal. To make the space more intimate and inviting you should add a wall like structure.
Outdoor living naturally creates a carefree and casual environment, but you need appropriate furniture to make things more comfortable. Your patio will feel as good as it looks after adding appropriate outdoor lounge chairs, cushions, and sofas with overstuffed cushions that use UV resistant materials. You want to create a balance with the furnishings and the rough hard surfaces such as concrete sidings, brick and wood.
If you truly want your outdoor patio area to feel like your second living room, add mementos or decor items that are in line with a theme and reflect your personality. The items need to be appropriate for tougher weather conditions and able to withstand wind conditions. Some potential items include:
- Wind chimes
- Bamboo features
- Rocks & shells
Patios are the ideal place to enjoy warm summer evenings without spending a fortune on air conditioning! However if you want to really enjoy it at night you are going to need appropriate and sufficient lighting. Solar lighting is relatively inexpensive and available in a range of styles to suite just about any location. They will not only add comfort, they will provide safety and help your guests to avoid tripping on things at night when going back and forth from your home to the patio.
When you make your outdoor living space look integrated into its surroundings you increase your properties curb appeal, making it a great selling point which will add value to your home if and when it comes time to sell.
