PATIOS ARE COOL WITH POOL
when planning your summer patio, have it in mind that nothing is as cool as the azure blue brilliance of the pool or the cooling effect of water on your body after a day of swimming, a pool is more of a necessity than a luxury in your patio.
DINING AND WINING MUST BE ACCOUNTED FOR
Evenings of summer are exclusively for wining and dining with friends and loved ones therefore when planning your patio create space for dining tables and seat for those extra buddies
MAKE ALLOWANCE FOR TV TIME
Watching your favorite sport or binge-watching your favorite Mexican soap opera, tv is an excellent addition to your patio design. As a result, allowance should be made when factoring a patio design /re-design.
MAKE IT SHADY
Either line with canopy-like trees or with thatch, your patio should be open enough to let some sunlight in and shaded sufficient to keep all the sunlight out, therefore include a shade (pergola) in the design.
LIGHT MAKES THINGS BRIGHT
Much more than brightness and luminescence, lights also add glamour to the patio, adding a set of beautiful and tastefully designed lights in your patio can make all the difference.
BARBECUE AND GRILLERS
Nothing is more memorable than a night out with friends, family and loved ones this summer with hot grill steaming on the griller just in your newly designed patio, do not forget to include a griller
DONT FORGET A KITCHEN
A Kitchen can always take the place of a grill or a barbecue stand, all you need is a few pots, pans and an outdoor kitchen corner just by your patio
ADD A FIREPLACE
A fireplace is not just good for aesthetic but also for a quiet night reserved for a good book and cold beverage, do not forget to add a fireplace in your patio plans
DONT FORGET TO ADD A FIRE PIT
The message is simple, don’t forget to add a fire pit at the center of your patio, you won’t regret it.
KEEP THE COOL WITH A FAN
When planning your patio to be summer ready including a fan or set of fans are not fancy, try it you won’t regret it.
TURN LOG INTO BENCHES
Try improvising with those logs you fell in your backyard, convert them to log seats or benches so your patio can sit more while you spend less buying seats.
MAKE THE SITTING AREA SPACIOUS
if there is space, express it, that’s what patios are for.
EXPRESS THE PATIO INTO SECTIONS
patios should not be dull, spruce it up and give each section a characteristic quality
HERE COMES THE BAR
Finally, when planning your patio for a memorable summer don’t forget to include the all essential bar, and you will never have to be sorry you made that decision.
Your patio is a personal testament of how well you choose to express your love for yourself and your environment; therefore whatever it takes, show to whoever cares to watch that you care.
