Patio's Make Great Living Spaces

Posted in Pool & Spa News Blog

Extend your home's beauty and functionality by making your patio an additional living space. Below are a few tips that, combined, will be a sure fire way to take your patio from drab to fab.

First ask yourself a few questions:

  • Will your patio be for beautiful summer evening dinner parties with family and friends?
  • Will your dining be followed with relaxing by the fire? Is that fire focal point a fireplace or a group of chairs resting casually around a fire pit?
  • What type of lighting do you envision? Tall freestanding oil torches? Strands of classic party lights? Candle lanterns?

That covers the evening entertainment but what happens during the day?
  • How about a comfy spot to sit in the sun?
  • Do you want a shaded retreat?
  • What about music?


As you can see a lot of thought goes into basic functionality. Once you decide the use of the space its time to carve out those different areas.

Think atmosphere: fun, classic, indoor decor spilling out

Furniture, plants and lighting can all be used to create borders between spaces

Make it comfortable and inviting with rugs, fabrics, and pillows
