The summer is heating up and so are trends in patio decor. Warm summer nights allow us to expand our living space to the outside. So, having a patio that caters to entertaining guests or an enjoyable space to make the most of your summer is important. Below are some patio ideas that are trending in 2017.
Bring the Indoors Out:
Your backyard quite simply provides extra living space if done right. This year, many people are mirroring their indoor decor outside. This makes for a seamless transition from your indoor dining space to an outdoor entertaining area perfect for peaceful nights or celebrating the summer with friends and family. So, invest in nice furniture that is inviting and aesthetically appealing. To decorate, look into other design features such as coffee tables, rugs, ottomans, side tables and simple decor. With today's technology in acrylic fabrics, patio furniture is actually worth the investment. If you buy the right materials, you will be able to get a lot more use out of your furniture and enjoy it for many summer nights.
Get comfy with summer pillows on your patio furniture. Not only will you and your guests be comfortable, but pillows are an easy way to bring color to the backyard.
Cool It Down:
Bring in hints of blues, grey's and whites to your patio furniture. Not only will this cool you down in the heat of the summer, but it will emulate coastal colors to help bring that beach vibe to Colorado. And better yet, bring the Mediterranean to your home with a mosaic table. This vintage look is back in style and can transport you to a relaxing, peaceful patio high above the aqua waters of the Amalfi Coast. Seal the deal with an inexpensive water feature. Water is proven to be relaxing and will make your backyard into an oasis.
Trends in 2017 is all about natural. Simple landscapes, natural materials and light and delicate furniture is being seen more and more. Rather than heavy furniture made of metals, this year woven, wooden furniture is back. And, just because it is wood, doesn't mean you have to stick to a traditional wood color. Many woven furniture is now coming in fun colors to help bring in that pop of color or even lean towards that beach vibe discussed above.
Your Outdoor Kitchen:
The grill is a staple to cooking outside and boasting those summertime flavors. But, more and more, people in Colorado are experimenting with edible gardens. Not only does planting fruits, vegetables and herbs make for a lovely natural look, but it provides delectable treats as well. Who wouldn't want to come over when you put a fresh sprig of mint from your garden into a summertime cocktail?
