Pride in Your Patio

When the weather is warm and the sun is shining, there's no better place to be than outside on a patio or in an outdoor space. Whether you're entertaining guests, hosting a barbecue, or just relaxing with a good book, a well-designed patio or outdoor space can make all the difference in your enjoyment. Is your personal style bold and chic, modern, or traditional and timeless?  Here are some elements to consider when creating your ideal patio design.

Comfortable seating: Comfort is key when it comes to outdoor furniture. Choose chairs, couches, or other seating options that are comfortable and inviting. Consider materials like wicker, teak, or cast aluminum for durability and timeless designs. And don't forget to add some colorful cushions or pillows to brighten up the space and make it more inviting. Collections from Gensun, Ebel, Hanamint, Portica, and Castelle offer a wide range of seating appealing to various needs.

Shade: A little bit of shade can go a long way when it comes to enjoying your outdoor space on a hot day. Consider installing an umbrella, a pergola, or shade trees to provide some relief from the sun. Red Oak, Glory Red Maple, or Birch trees are beautiful shade trees for Oregon planting.

Plants and landscaping: Plants and landscaping can add color and texture to your outdoor space, making it feel more inviting and relaxing. Consider adding potted plants, hanging baskets, or even a small herb garden to your patio or outdoor space. Container plants can be transformed each season providing consistent color and interest year-round.

Outdoor kitchen or grill: If you love to cook and entertain outdoors, consider adding an outdoor kitchen or grill to your patio or outdoor space. This will allow you to cook and serve meals outside, making it easy to entertain and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Fire pit or pellet heater: A fire pit or pellet heater can add warmth and ambiance to your outdoor space, making it a cozy place to gather with friends and family on chilly evenings. Consider adding a fire pit or patio pellet heater to add warmth and ambiance on cooler evenings.

Privacy and peace: Privacy and tranquility can be important considerations when designing your outdoor space. Consider adding privacy screens, trellises with intoxicating vines like clematis, wisteria, or sweet pea, or even tall shrubs to create a secluded and peaceful oasis. Add soothing sound elements like a bubbler fountain and chimes to engage all your senses.

By incorporating these elements into your patio design or deck, you can create the perfect outdoor spaces to relax, entertain, and enjoy the beautiful weather. What if you have multiple outdoor areas to consider? A deck outside your bedroom or a patio off your dining area?  Extend your design with smaller sets or collections. Consider a secluded area pushed further away from your home. Each of these areas can be enhanced to create a special experience and functionality. Small spaces have vast potential. With some forethought, a well-designed outdoor space can bring a sense of pride...and a little neighbor envy!
