A special atmosphereBefore anything and before any work, you must stop on the style that you want to bring to your patio. More widespread in hot countries, the patio is often inspired by the decoration of Mediterranean, oriental or exotic atmospheres. Nothing prevents you from opting for more contemporary or original styles. The main thing is to think about the whole so as not to make bad style combinations. Colors, plants and garden furniture, all must inspire the same atmosphere.
A floor to go barefootWhether it's a patio or an interior courtyard, there is nothing sadder than a bare, unpleasant floor under your feet. If your patio needs to be completely redone, the first step is to install a floor. Several solutions are available to you: tiling, gratings, Japanese steps, artificial grass or even gravel. If your budget is tight, you can also repaint the floor to refresh it or even add outdoor floor mats. Keep in mind for this renovation that walking around your patio barefoot should be fun.
At night, we still enjoy the patio with pleasant lighting.
Different levels in the patio
Points of light
A simple bench provides different levels.
Rest firstCompared to a garden, the patio requires very little maintenance (no lawn to mow). So this is a space that really invites to laze around and relax. In this case, it is essential to take care of the details and the elements conducive to rest. If your patio is large enough, you can create a secret corner there, hidden by plants and which allow you to rest out of sight. With a small space, this is also possible with a deckchair or a hammock.
A few mirrors and the omnipresent white color make it possible to visually enlarge the space.
Dare to color, but not too much
The multiplication of potsNature lovers can indulge in their patio. Whether climbing, shrubs, small trees or flowers, almost nothing is impossible. For an accumulation effect, consider multiplying the pots with different sizes and shapes. Aspiring botanists can do real wonders in the patios, as long as you keep in mind the constraints of this place such as sunshine.
A great example of the use of color in a patio.
