13 Patio Design Ideas
Spaces in the open air are now an integral part of a home. We can hardly imagine any relaxing activity in the contemporary era without first associating with nature’s fresh air. Balconies, patios, porches or gazeebos – transit towards the outdoors comes in various forms, but all sharing the common final goal of relaxation. Here are some patio design ideas for your inspiration in choosing such a space that accommodates particularities of your property.
We are accustomed to seeing patios attached to the houses. But, if space allows, go for a place to relax outdoors, so you can enjoy nature to the fullest. A circular terrace, chiseled in stone and bordered by boulders with a great aesthetic role and a fire pit in the center – the recipe is simple, but very effective. Or just pick a tree and wrap the patio around it.
A pergola always works wonders, combining an aesthetic role with a practical one. It can be placed right next to the house or remotely, in the latter case representing a genuine oasis of peace. Add different elements that give flavor to the place, such as an outdoor oven and even a climbing plant. And since pergola is a central point in such exterior landscaping ideas, here is more to inspire you.
A terrace exuding a rustic flavor, perfectly integrated in the surrounding natural landscape, is another option easy to put into practice. Stone, wood and some organic elements in the picture and recreation space is ready, simple but effective.
Keeping the same rustic note, here is a corner in the picture below which seems to make a smooth transition to a green open space near the house.
Your quiet corner can be arranged in simple shapes, but with taste. A wooden seating area framed by planters made from the same material is sufficient for a successful decor that invites to the moments of respite outside.
And if nature is what you constantly look for, then let it come closer to you. In the pictures below, the terraces are overwhelmed by plants, transformed into veritable miniature gardens just two steps away from home.
