How to Create a Cozy Patio
Utilizing patio space as an extension of your home is a wonderful exercise in creativity. Creating a cozy space for hot summer days and cooler nights is easier than you think!
First, pick a corner of your patio that you want to enhance. Placing things diagonally creates a cozy atmosphere and fills the space nicely.
Outdoor rugs are a wonderful way to "frame" the space. You can add your seating area, and a side table within the frame.
Potted plants can cozy up a patio area in no time. For cool summer nights, a working chiminea can come in very handy. Even if you choose not to use it, the look and style creates a very warm environment.
Add a couple of garden statues to reflect your own style, and if the sun gets too hot, a free standing umbrella is the perfect addition.
To give a "zen" effect, chimes and a fountain offer the perfect finishing touches.
