Continued from Small Patio Design Ideas:
One of the biggest trends that you’ll see in a design gallery or pictures will be painted furniture. It’s popular to have different colors of the same chair. Even if you just have inexpensive plastic furniture you can spruce it up with special spray paint every few years. Use bright pinks and trendy apple greens. If you invest in Adirondack chairs these can be pretty pricy so you’ll have them for a while. Keep them white for a beach vibe; but brings in reds and blue for a country look.
When you are looking for patio ideas on a budget, this one will be the best. Prepare the patio floor with concrete which is quite affordable. Create a water wall on one side of the patio using acrylic sheeting and copper pipes. A solar spotlight can be used to highlight this wall. Choose teak furniture for this kind of patio. If there is enough space after all the pieces of furniture are arranged, then you can keep a fire pit made of copper next to the seating area. For lighting of the area, use solar lighting with a copper finish. On each of the dining tables, keep a bunch of pillar candles for better lighting.
No patio can be complete without a great garden area surrounding it. Backyard landscape ideas are important to develop along with your patio so they can complement each other. The best patios are ones that are surrounded by nature and look like are almost part of the landscape.
Small garden statues will make your patio seem more welcoming, but do not use too many of them as they will make your patio feel cramped and crowded. Several small statues of animals or children will fit in with any flower pots you have decorating your porch and will add personality. Adding flowers to your patio will make it feel more like a garden, and will make it look more festive and bright during the summer months. If you have hanging hooks on your patio, you can suspend flower pots from these, or if you have a fence you can use hangers that are supported by the top edge of your fence.
