Decorating your new luxury home is an exciting task, however there is one thing new homeowners almost always forget to include during the decorating process.
Your outdoor patio area is as much a part of your home as anything indoors especially if you live in a luxury estate like Richfield Lifestyle Estate so it’s important for you to give it as much attention as the rest of your home.
To help you transform your patio into an outdoor paradise we’ve compiled 10 decorating tips that should give you the edge if you aren’t quite sure where to start.
Create a place to gather
The foundation of good patio decorating lies in creating a space for friends and family to gather according to Thomas Kay, outdoor living and lifestyle blogger. The idea is to build you space around a focal point, like a fire pit, table etc. and then provide plenty of seating space for everyone to enjoy the space.
Create place for games
If you have young children in the family, you may want to create space outdoors where they can enjoy outdoor activities and games. What’s fun is that you can work with your kids to design these spaces and work them into your outdoor décor. Think along the lines of a life size checkers board made from grass and paving tiles or a hopscotch area fashioned similarly.
Add a mirror
Mirrors are great for decorating both inside and outside. Whether you have a small patio area or not mirrors can help enhance the area by creating the illusion of space and adding another dimension to things. The best part about this trick is that it should be relatively easy to find something to match your outdoor patio décor.
Throw in a water feature
No outdoor area is complete without a suitable water feature. Adding a water feature to your outdoor patio can help create a tranquil atmosphere for those times when you feel like enjoying your outdoor area on your own. If you’re eco-conscious you will be happy to know that many water features today are designed to be efficient so you won’t have to worry about wastage or your water bill.
Invest in string lights
String lights are a great way to add a whimsical, elegant touch to your outdoor area. They’re perfect for your patio because they are difficult to see during the day and the number of little light bulbs help to spread the light out easily at night. The atmosphere created by the lights will impress your guests time and time again.
