If you have a patio, then you have a little treasure; all you have to do is learn to make the most of it in order to enjoy it in great measure when the summer season approaches your way.
High temperatures, exhaustion, and heat…summer brings all of these elements; therefore, a comfortable and well-designed patio becomes a necessity. It is important that the design your undertake is simple as you don’t want it to be an overwhelming experience for you.
When it comes to decorating your patio, we suggest that you use bright colors if you want it to reflect freshness. If you decorate with white colors or shades of blue, you will give your patio a vibe of enlightenment. Another option is vivid colors such as red, orange, or yellow. Opting for patio furniture in these colors can really bring life to your patio. Cool colors enhance the feeling of spaciousness.
Purchase color bottles at your favorite store. After you fill them with water, distribute them around the yard. You will get a wonderful effect when the sun’s rays are reflected in them. You can also place a candle inside of them to make your patio look bigger.
Summer is synonymous of relaxation; therefore, your patio cannot be missing a ‘chill out corner.’ It can be the perfect spot to listen to music, have cocktails, enjoy a chat with friends, or relax. All you have to do is choose the corner and make it a private-like section with the furniture that you find the most adequate. Opt for chairs and low tables. You can consider white cushions, and if you have room, make a small tent with white curtains.
It is impossible to have a patio without any flowers. Flowers are well-known for being able to bring a positive vibe to any space. Opt for bottles or vases and build your own pots and distribute them all over the patio. You can even opt to paint vases or bottles in different colors to give more joy to your patio.
We recommend sunflowers, lilies, dahlias, and daisies. Cut the stems before putting them into the bottles so that they can better absorb water and stay healthy and fresh for a longer period of time. Another option is to fill large transparent bowls with lilies in order to bring an exoticism vibe to your patio.
You always have to make sure your patio always smells good. You can opt for burning incense or essential oils in order to give it an exotic aroma. You can also grow plants that emit a special scent, like lavender or thyme. You can also opt for coconut, pineapple, orange, mint, or peppermint aromas. It is all up to you.
Another great design idea for a patio would be to decorate it in a sailor-like style. To do this, you will need to mix black with blue tones. Opt for striped cushions and integrate vases that contain sand. If you like the idea, you can integrate shells or other decorative elements that go hand-in-hand with the sea.
