Create a Peaceful Retreat on Your Patio
Personalize Your Patio
1. Choose comfy cushions in colors that pop, add an outdoor rug, or set up separate seating areas for lounging, reading, cocktails, or dining alfresco. However you add personality to your patio, be sure to incorporate weatherproof furniture and accessories that will withstand seasonal climate and temperature changes.
Light The Night
2. To maximize the time you can spend outdoors, illuminate the night. String lights up if you have a covered patio, place decorative lanterns at varying heights on planter boxes or side tables, and add flameless pillar candles to tables or candle holders to create a soft, ambient glow.
Incorporate a Fire Pit
3. To use your patio year around, or at least three seasons of the year, install a cozy and warm fire pit. Frame the area around the fire pit with planter boxes filled with faux plants and set up Rattan sofas or Adirondack chairs for comfortable seating options.
Once you are done putting your personal touches on your patio, your only job is to sit back, relax, and enjoy your private retreat!
