Did you know that 43% of Americans are planning on spending over $1,000 on a summer vacation this year? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a vacation spot right on your own patio?
With the right patio designs, you can spend the summer at your own home while feeling like you’re on a special, expensive getaway. Plus, you’ll be making more use of your home which you’ve already spent money on and feel comfortable in.
With these 5 patio ideas for hardscape and softscape, you can make a private outdoor oasis in your own backyard.
Zigzag and twist fairy light over structures in mass quantities to create a soft or even twinkling glow. Add visual appeal to corners with LED candles that gently flicker. You can even wrap lights around the branches of a nearby tree for a whimsical approach.
Whitewashed walls and patterned dishes add a Mediterranean feel. Softscaping ideas like large tropical plants and vines can make you feel like you’re on a jungle vacation. Tiki torches and sand-colored hardscape will place you on a distant beach.
For inspiration, look to Pantone’s trendy color predictions for this year. Or, if you want a more individual approach, choose a color that you’ve always loved that you’ve been too nervous to paint inside.
You can always change the look of your patio year to year with cushions, plants, and other décor, but a good base with your furniture and appliances will keep you using your patio for years to come.
You can add shade to any patio with umbrellas, retractable awnings, and even permanent wooden structures. You can fill your outdoor, wooden roof with vines to help blend it into your backyard theme.
