Continue reading below for everything you need to know about creating this space.
Use Pavers for Expansion
If you already have a deck or patio area built, consider expanding the amount of space you have by laying down pavers next to the preexisting patio or deck. Be sure to use patio tiles that are a neutral color. This is the best way to ensure that they’ll match with any furniture you decide to place on it.
You can also consider laying down an outdoor patio rug in the center of the newly placed pavers to really spruce it up. Contacting a local landscape company is a great way to make sure the job is done well!
Create a Green Wall
If your patio has a wall on either side of it, you can create a green wall to bring life to your patio space. Even if your patio doesn’t have privacy walls, you can use your home’s exterior wall for your green wall creation. To create a green wall, you can hang your favorite plants in different colored pots.
Don’t feel obligated to use the same type of plants either. Mix things up by hanging a variety of flowers, plants, and herbs.
Hang Pendant Lights
To get the most out of your patio space, you’ll want it to be useable at night. To design a nighttime hangout, hang pendant lights from your patio’s roof. You can also consider hanging string lights or fairy lights around the area.
Not all backyard patios have roofs, so string lights are the perfect alternative to pendant lighting for situations like these. You can wrap string lights around nearby trees, install them at the top of your home’s exterior walls, and more.
