Some of the same ideas and principles that professional designers use to make interior spaces look their best can also be applied to your patio. For example:
DEVELOP A THEME. Give your patio a beach feel with umbrellas, beach towels, distressed furniture, nautical accessories, and more. Or use river stones, cabin furnishings and wildflowers to create a creek-side theme.
DRAPE THE SPACE IN LIGHT. Weatherproof, commercial grade string lights (with full size bulbs) are available inexpensively today. Hang them over your patio to create a lighting effect that’s both practical and romantic.
USE RUGS. Laying area rugs on your patio allows you to cover imperfections and add color and personality to create a more intimate setting.
ADD VISUAL INTEREST. Place a few large boulders or decorative pots or accessories around your patio to give the surrounding yard more visual interest.
