Best Patio Design Ideas
Easily make your patio an extension of your indoor space by adding a cover, lighting, and some simple finishing touches. Whether it’s for a football game get-together or an after hours work party, a patio cover is a great place to start.
If you’ve decided to add a pergola to your patio design, our Guide to Choosing a Pergola will help you decide which wood pergola will work best. For maximum coverage over your patio, our Big Kahuna Pergola Kit is the style we recommend. For slightly less coverage, our Sombrero Pergola Kit is built for medium sun coverage. And if you’d like a more open design, our Fedora Pergola Kit is the perfect match!
Any of our styles can accommodate other patio features such as landscape and lighting enhancements. One of the most popular suggestions for patio design and decoration I’ve seen is adding firelight. Anything from lanterns, string lights and tabletop fire rings, to fire pits, chimeneas or full-size fireplaces will all add warmth and a glow to your patio. There’s nothing quite like settling around a small fire with some friends in the comfort of your own backyard and recapping the big game.
Outdoor Lighting Ideas for Patio Design
If you’re looking for more specific ideas for lighting, this outdoor lighting guide offers several ways to improve or install outdoor/home exterior lighting. There are many different resources showing options for DIY outdoor lighting ideas, with light fixtures available to fit any decor or budget. Classic looking lanterns create a timeless look that can help illuminate your seating area. Or, you can add an outdoor fireplace or fire pit to create a complete living room feel. HGTV offers some lighting ideas for fall that you could incorporate in time for that fall or winter gathering. The natural look of a wooden pergola near an outdoor fireplace or fire pit gives any outdoor space a welcoming feel.
