One way you can start fresh in terms of home design is to redecorate your patio. While style plays an important part in the decision-making, another would be to consider the functionality and durability of the key pieces of your patio’s furniture.
Prior to picking out the key pieces for your patio, remember to make sure that its ground surfaces are free from cracks or any depressed areas. To make sure the resurfacing is done correctly, you might want to consider resurfacing services like those offered by Fort York Paving and Canadian Resurfacing.
After making sure that your surfaces are smooth and problem free, here are the top three main pieces (and a few accessories) you might want to consider putting in your space:
- Furniture – One of the most important features of a patio is the furniture. Other than its design, another important aspect to consider when it comes to picking the right patio furniture is the material. One material which is stylish, low-maintenance, lightweight, and highly durable is synthetic resin. This usually comes in a wicker weave design. Remember to pick High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) wicker instead of PVC types for better quality.
- Table – Outdoor patio tables should complement the furniture so it does not create too many distractions. Pick one that is simple to maintain, or if you’re looking to save some space, invest in one that can also function as a storage box!
- Storage unit – Several designs have incorporated storage units into patio furnitures and tables. Storage spaces can be used to keep small knick knacks and canned beverages during the summer.
- Accessories – This includes a patio umbrella, some decorative figurines on the table, pillows, and other details that can bring together the overall look in one cohesive theme. Remember not to go overboard with accessories as patios are meant to be relaxing and should not have any clutter!
Redesigning your patio can be fun; and — as an added bonus — it doesn’t have to be expensive! Take your time, plan it out; but also remember to enjoy the process. Have some fun picking out colours when you go furniture shopping. Just make sure to keep in mind the quality and durability or the materials; also take into careful consideration the amount of maintenance those items need. Doing so will allow you to save more money on repairs and upkeep. Get creative, and make the patio an extension of your home’s design!
