Summer Patio Ideas

07/19/2018

During the summer season, natural lighting best enhances the beauty of the outdoors—with clear skies, vivid foliages, and the gentle summer breeze—making this the perfect time to get cool and cozy with your friends and family on your patio.

Upgrading your patio doesn’t require a big construction job. You only need the right design elements and furnishings for a stunning, summer-proof outdoor space. Follow these simple tips to create a summer-ready patio:

  • A Pop of Color: Transform your patio’s ambience with light and refreshing colors. Put together accent pieces in pastels such as mint, blue, and pink for a fun vibe. Pastels will make your patio the perfect party space for kids and adults alike.  Go for a more laid-back feel with colors that complement nature’s palette. Cool blues, golden hues, and vibrant reds make your patio feel more intimate and inviting. 
  • A Wholesome Retreat: You don’t need to go elsewhere to enjoy summer camp evenings with your kids. Personalizing a backyard bonfire retreat has become increasingly popular because of easy patio pitfire DIY solutions. A few of the most popular are pebble or gravel patios, submerged fire pits, tin pits, and overlaid stone pits. Snuggle up with your family and friends on patio sofas around a backyard bonfire customized just for you. 
  • A Stunning Patio: If you can’t help but long for a major summer patio revamping, pergolas make the best addition to your outdoor space. Spending afternoons on your patio can mean exposing yourself to direct sunlight. A pergola gives you just the right shade as it allows summer air to circulate freely.   Enjoy outdoor views over a glass of clear wine while lounging in your own alfresco area.
