Adding Plants and Natural Elements
While most yards have some foliage, this year has been all about extending the greenery beyond the yard. Using a combination of hardscape and plant life can have a lovely effect with little maintenance. Consider using small potted plants to take advantage of the vertical space for small patios in urban areas. And you also have the possibility of adding a vegetable garden to your patio. Growing tomatoes or various herbs on your balcony or patio not only provides you with delicious food but also adds elegance and style to your backyard.
Bringing Comfort Outside
The idea of an outdoor room is nothing new, but the past year has taken it to the next level. Homeowners and designers are focusing on comfortable outdoor settings more than ever before. As we spend more time working from home, it is necessary to have outdoor spaces that let us unwind with cozy accessories. Your outdoor patio is an extension of your home, so it should afford you the same comfort level as the indoor spaces. Consider adding pillows and cushions to soften outdoor furniture to make any patio instantly feel cozier.
Choosing the perfect lighting will help you highlight the best features of your outdoor space. For instance, warm, low lighting creates a relaxing environment, while vibrant lighting brings energy and life to your patio. Statement lighting will add an interesting visual element to your outdoor gatherings, no matter what mood you are going for. Lighting is also a necessary safety feature, especially if you prefer to entertain at night. Well-lit paths and stairways are essential to designing a safe outdoor space for celebrating well into the night.
