Patios can either be a feature or a failure of any home, both aesthetically and from a re-selling point of view. Lack of imagination and attention to detail can result in the patios not meeting the possibilities of being a well-loved and wellused part of your home. We want to fire your imagination so that you can enjoy your outdoor space and take full advantage of the Thailand patio.
Invite the Indoors Outside
Create additional outdoor space with fabulous folding glass walls. Your living room can then takes advantage of outdoor views year-round, while the patio becomes a pleasant place to lounge as evening breezes flow through the house.
Consider Durable Patio Furniture
Durable seating is a great option if you want a patio that stands up to weather and other outdoor elements. Decorative pillows can add a touch of colour and softness.
Shade Your Patio With a Pergola
Not only as a beautifully designed structure and an architectural focal point, it adds instant comfort on sunny days. Subtle bistro lights and a grill station can complete this outdoor room.
Pick Interesting Accessories
Don’t settle for dull patio furniture that’s an uncomfortable eyesore. Upgrade your patio with artistic flair that complements your design style. Local craftsmen and artisans can be great resources for unique metal finds.
Design the Ultimate Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor kitchens can be fully functional. From refrigerators to side burners, flat-screen televisions to surround sound, a full-service outdoor kitchen will take your patio to the next level.
Water elements go a long way in a backyard escape. Water features add life, movement and the illusion of coolness to an outdoor space. If you’re working on a limited budget, consider a free-standing fountains available at outdoor furnishings stores.
Light & Bright
Forget those overhead interrogation lamps sometimes used in outdoor spaces. Guests are happiest (and look best) when lit from several sources. For a festive evening look, string up some LED rope lights or lanterns add additional illumination.
If you want to be outdoors when the rays are strongest, a shade umbrella will allow you to enjoy the fresh air without frying your skin. No room for an umbrella on a stand? A parasol could be placed it on the rail of your deck or patio as well.
Music to My Ears
It isn’t really a party until the music starts playing. Dock your iPod outside, or splurge on outdoor speakers. Unobtrusive installation eliminates the risk of guests tripping over loose wires.
When the guests have all left (or on a day you don’t feel like entertaining at all), you’ll want to stretch out and catch some z’s. A hammock can make any backyard feel like a tropical island.
