Patios. Saturday , June 30th , 2018 - 01:11:07 AM
After you have found the perfect patio idea and built the perfect patio it is important that the furnishings and accessories you choose provide a consistent overall look and feel. There are as many different kinds of patio furniture as there are kinds of patios, and it is important to choose the furniture that best meets your needs. Of course there are a number of things all patio furniture and accessories should have in common, including of course durability and weather resistance. Fortunately there are a number of excellent brands of patio furniture designed to stand up to the rigors of outdoor use while still looking its very best.
Patios are a wonderful place to spend your summer months. Choosing the size, shape, theme, exact location, and material of the patio are all things you will need to figure out. You may want to add lighting to your new patio so that you can use it during the night in the summer. The lighting should blend in well with the patio design and not look like a spotlight. You need to provide subtle lighting that highlights the features of the patio design and makes the patio more beautiful.
Patios can be made from many different types of materials. Increasingly popular is cast concrete. When polished this leaves a super-smooth surface that maintains its heat in the colder evening periods and allows the owner to walk about in bare feet in comfort. This concrete can be stained to match any color choice and this permeates the entire thickness of the concrete and so never wears out.
If you already use your patio a lot, one of the best patio ideas is a screened in porch look. This will give you the porch that you love, but will also protect you from the sun, the rain, and most importantly, the bugs! This is a great idea for your patio, and can make the space usable year around, which is nice.
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.
1) Light the way. The most basic part of the night patio is light. White Christmas string lights are a great solution, and there are also lots of unusual string lights, or bistro lights if you want something different. Don't forget candles, either, though you'll need tall candle holders to protect them from even a bit of breeze. You do not need so much light that you can read out on the patio, but you do want to be able to see well enough to recognize people, and to make sure your visitors can see where to walk safely. If your patio is at the end of a walkway, that means investing in some good solar path lights.
