Warm weather is on its way, and that means more time out on the patio! Extend the use of your outdoor living space with these renovation ideas:

First, consider the purpose of your patio. Think about how you’d like to use your space. Do you envision a relaxed get together around a fire? A cozy spot to sip wine and read a book? Or maybe a party packed with music and lights? The goal is to make your patio a place you actually want to spend time on, and make the most of your investment.

Make it Your Own!
One way to make your patio more inviting is to create a seating area. Personalize the space by curating pieces with a similar style while keeping the aesthetics of your home in mind. Play up the architecture of your farmhouse with rustic style furniture, or create a bohemian yoga retreat with ornate style rugs and macrame planters. If you aren’t sure of how to decorate, Pinterest is an extremely useful tool to garner inspiration.
To ensure that your patio space is for your enjoyment and not for your nosy neighbors’ viewing pleasure, consider installing fencing and tall plants. Privacy is key to making you feel the most at ease on your patio. Another aspect to consider; love the outdoors, but hate melting in the heat? Maybe an awning or canopy is the right idea for you! Escape the sun, take shelter in the shade, and enjoy the gentle breeze summer has to bring.

Enjoy being a Host?
If you’re the kind of person who loves hosting cookouts, but hates the constant back and forth to the house, consider installing an outdoor kitchen. There are plenty of convenient outdoor kitchen amenities available, like countertops, sinks, even fridges! If you’d like a more in-depth look at outdoor kitchens, read more about them here. Minimize your trips and maximize your time outside with your guests.
Another way to enjoy more time out on the patio is to install a fire pit. Bring some marshmallows, and you’re ready for the ultimate summer campfire experience.

Extend your patio time!
A day out on the patio doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down! Consider installing outdoor lighting to keep the fun going under the stars. Imagine a night with friends with cozy vintage lights strung above, or perhaps colored RGB lights for a fun, modern look. Lighting can also be utilized for safety purposes, such as illuminating stairs, steps, and pathways. Not only is lighting a great way to establish an atmosphere, but it’s also functional.
