Becky Macdonald. Patios. November 27th , 2018.
It seems that everywhere I go lately, I see patios: houses, offices, hospitals, restaurants, and spas. You name it, I've seen it there. They are becoming increasingly popular amongst South African gardens of all kinds and everyone is jumping at the opportunity to have it built onto their homes.
There are many different kinds of material to consider when looking for patio ideas. The most important elements of the patio would be the colours, textures and designs used: if this works, the patio could be bare and still look inviting and comfortable. Cobbles, flagstone, tiles and cladding are all different ideas to look at, just remember to first look at their qualities before making a decision. Compare their durability, looks, textures, colours and strength.
But nighttime is much less scheduled. As a result, many of our favorite, most classic leisure time activities -- the ones we actually do -- end up being done at night. Think watching television and cooking and eating. Reading, playing board games, sewing projects and catching up with friends. Most of that is relegated to evenings.
When choosing from these hundreds of patio ideas it is vital of course to take your lifestyle, and that of your family, into account. People use their patios for many different purposes, from formal entertaining to simply relaxing. It is important to consider what the primary purpose of the patio will be, and to tailor your patio ideas to that use.
You may like a patio water garden or an outdoor kitchen. It doesn't matter. Just decide on a main theme once you have a few things you want in mind. Then start to fit everything into the patio design around the theme. Where do you like to put the furniture? What materials will you use? Will a lighting change the ambiance? Try different arrangements to make sure the outdoor patio ideas you gathered work out to be what you want.
Build a series of patio places that will be put to use almost all year around with the use of patio gazebos. A patio gazebo can create drama not to mention shelter from occasional rain showers and also the unhealthy rays of the sun. A slate pathway directing visitors to a patio gazebo with potted plants surrounding it provides a beautiful environment for open-air dining.
3) Add some warmth. Extend the season for your patio by adding a fire pit or even an outdoor heater. These also add more light and create an immediate focal point -- everyone who steps out into your backyard will know immediately where the party is. The best outdoor fires are surrounded by thick walls that radiate heat, but even a metal trash can works if that is all you've got. Don't forget the marshmallows!
