48 Lush Patio Designs To Bring You Outdoors

A patio or veranda (terrace, balcony, deck, porch – whatever you have to work with) is often used as an outdoor living space. Warmer temperatures, bright blue skies, and sunny days are luring you outside. And if you’re planning to do any of your eating, entertaining, or lounging out there, then it’s time to rethink how that area looks and feels.

Whether it’s comprised of stone, brick or concrete, this paved area is frequently used as a socializing location, especially when there’s a grill or fire pit present. Throw in an outdoor kitchen and dining set and it can also become your favorite eating spot, and an abundance of furniture and colorful patio decor turns it into the perfect sunny lounge.

When you start planning patio design or remodel, first is to decide what you are going to use your patio for. So figure out what main function of this area will be. Do you want a relaxing area to enjoy sun with your family or posh space to wow your guests?  Do you want to entertain large groups or intimate gatherings?

Secondly, take time to figure out what patio materials will work best for your remodel, and decide whether you want a covered or uncovered area. Stone and terracotta tile are common with mediterranean houses, while brick is most often seen in traditional homes. Concrete works well with almost any space and style, so it’s always a great option when you’re choosing patio materials. For coverage, you can always add a pergola, arbor, awning or trellis for some shade, or you can let the sun shine down on your patio.  Then decide on desired amenities like outdoor fireplace, fire pit, or small barbecue… And then comes the best part – decorating.

Much like any other room in your home, decorate the space to ensure that it’s welcoming, interesting and aligned with your home’s style. You can make your patio a second living room, dining room, breakfast nook or whatever you want it to be. And one last advice when decorating your outdoor area – greenery and flowers make everything better.
