Summer Patio Style. Picks From Century's Home Designer

Posted: May, 16, 2016 | Categories: Home Design
The sun's shining, the kids are begging to play outside and you're ready for some much needed patio time. But the frumpy, dirty patio furniture just isn't very inviting. It's time to plan an outdoor patio makeover ASAP. Here's what's hot in summer patio style this season!

Upgrade to a Sectional

For the ultimate in comfort, add a living room area to the patio. Outdoor sectional couches made from aluminum or wicker are easy to move and configure. Pick cushions to coordinate with your outdoor color scheme to refresh your patio. We love the one above from AE Outdoor

Add Privacy Screens

If your patio overlooks the neighbor's yard, add some instant separation and personality by adding a decorative screen at the edge of your outdoor space. Something in bamboo or a floral-printed canvas is both stylish and useful when you just want to sunbathe or enjoy your morning coffee in peace.

Brighten Your Space

Backyard twinkle lights

If you tend to head indoors when the sun goes down, invest in a few outdoor lighting options to make your patio inviting long into the evening. In addition to gas-powered fireplaces and fire pits, strings of novelty lights and hanging lanterns add a warm glow to your patio.

Add Extra Seating

If you love hosting backyard barbecues or girl's nights, you can never have too many places to sit. This season, add a few multitasking pieces, such as a hammock, hanging swing chair, oversize foot stools or built-in wood bench seats at the edge of a deck.

Include Zen Focal Points

Make your outdoor space a relaxing retreat by adding a few personal touches. A water fountain, set of wind chimes or small space designated for your yoga mat can make the patio your go-to when you need a little "me time".

Plant Some Color

Raised Garden

Look at the area around the patio. The perimeter is the perfect area to install a few raised gardens, flowering shrubs or add low groundcover that blooms during the summer. Ask a landscaper what plants thrive in your community with minimal maintenance.

Add New Pillows

If you love your current patio set, give it a mini makeover. Just add pillows! Pick a new bold, contrasting color or pattern and incorporate those colors in a few more ways on the patio. Hanging flower baskets, outdoor rugs and wall art on the house are simple ways to add additional pops of color.

Is your current patio too small or lacking the views you desire? Century Communities can help you find a new home, complete with the ideal outdoor space you're looking for. Contact us today to learn more by calling 877-869-6748.
