A Beginner’s Guide To Patio Design

Now that you have the inside of your home decorated perfectly, it’s time to turn your attention to designing your patio. Whether you’re starting from scratch or have a patio screaming for TLC, the good news is that there are plenty of great ways to not only make your patio look great, but also give it the shade and sun protection you want and need. If you’re ready to get started on your outdoor living space, here’s your beginner’s guide to creating patio shade and finding fantastic patio accessories.

How Will Your Patio be Used?

For starters, decide how you plan to use your patio the most. Will it be for entertaining guests, or do you want it to be a private space where you can sit down and lose yourself in the latest bestseller? In either case, you’ll need lots of shade and sun protection, which you can get by adding a retractable awning or Zip Shades. From giving you additional privacy to cooling your patio by 10-20 degrees on the hottest days, you’ll be able to control these with a simple tap on your smartphone, ensuring you won’t have to leave your comfortable chair and lose your place in your book.

Choose the Right Accessories

If you have decided you want your patio to be the place where elegant social gatherings occur on a frequent basis, you’ll of course want accessories that convey nothing but elegance. For many patios, a camargue does just that. Once added to your patio, this will instantly look as if your patio is no longer a separate part of your home, but rather an extension of it and its elegance. As an added bonus, many can be outfitted with rolling shutters, giving you privacy while also protecting your patio furniture from harmful UV rays.

Take Your Time

When designing your patio, don’t hurry through the process. Instead, take your time and visualize the space you truly desire. For example, when constructing a new patio, don’t put it in a location that is not practical, such as next to an air conditioning unit that is so noisy it makes having conversations impossible. Also, even if you are on a budget, don’t skimp on getting high-quality products. If you do, you’ll likely experience problems only a few years after your patio is built, meaning you’ll probably pay out more in repairs than you would have originally on materials.

Get the Right Furniture

For large or small patios, choose furniture that fits in well with your surroundings. Whether it’s a bistro set or large chairs and couches, you don’t want your patio to look as if it either has too much furniture or not enough. Also, use natural colors to create a clean look, then accent your accessories with colorful throw pillows or blankets.
