5 Deck & Patio Ideas For Better Summer Leisure
Decks and patios are nice for outdoor leaisure. You can receive guests or simply lounge with the family enjoying your garden or just some fresh air in privacy. There are many ways to design and decorate your outdoor spaces but these ideas are the best when it comes to creating an ultimate outdoor retreat.
Deck & Patio Ideas
When building a deck or a patio consider a built in seating or a wide rail to use it as a counter. It’s so much easier to build a seating than buying furniture for the deck later. You can also increase privacy of your deck by building in a pergola into it. You’ll be able to create a sun awning and also hang curtains for decor and privacy purposes.
Pool decks are perfect for pool parties and framing above ground pools. If you’re after a tropical-like resort look a wooden deck is a way to go. Stone is too official and grand while wooden slats are warm to the touch and can make the place look and feel really resort-y.
Pallets are so versatile you can make practically anything out of them. They’re like adult LEGOs. You can prep a few pallets and arrange them into a patio or terrace if you are short on budget. The best thing is that you can also make furniture out of them for your outdoor area too.
A patio or a deck don’t have to be traditional or look natural. Of course if it best suits the exterior then it’s fine but you can do so much more with a patio or a deck by painting them in a flattering color or decorating with some ornaments like in this picture.
Deck or patio lighting doesn’t have to be boring. There are so many ways to go about it. If a fire pit isn’t an option try ambient lights under stairs or seats. They will create a nice romantic atmosphere on your deck and will glow instead of glaring like a common street light.
