As the weather warms up, the desire to move out of doors calls to us! A patio or porch is a wonderful way to create a bridge a between the indoors and the outside! There are many ways to dress up your patio and the space around it, to create a welcoming and enjoyable outdoor room!
One key factor to creating a comforting outdoor room is noise control. The addition of a water feature to your patio or garden setting adds a tranquil and soothing sound to your setting. A simple tabletop fountain, like the Artifact Mini-Series Fountain, may be the perfect touch for a small setting. If your patio is larger, the addition of a pedestal fountain, like the Aya Fountain, would be a stunning accent for a corner space. Wall fountains are another great idea for a patio. The Winding Vine Wall Fountain brings the peacefulness of water in motion, while taking up little space on your patio.
Decoration is another aspect to consider for a patio. A perfectly placed flower pot, full or rich color and pleasant aromas will make an exciting accent for a setting. Consider a classic urn, like the Litchfield Urn, and add a stylish and charming touch to your setting. For a more modern and colorful approach, add the Belen Planter, whose soothing glaze and tall stature can stand alone as a focal point. Or even use sets of planters to create a border between one living space and maybe a gardening space to stop visitors from walking through the growing garden.
Complete the look with charming sitting area. A great dining set will keep you outdoors and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air all summer long! If the space is not big enough for dining, consider a beautifully sculpted garden bench to sit along an empty wall. This will create a great focal point, while adding seating to your setting as well. You are sure to enjoy the sunny days on any outdoor seating area by enjoying a nice refreshing beverage or just spending a few moments to read your favorite book all while taking in nature.
