Many homeowners often focus on how they can update or improve their indoor space to better entertain family and other guests. However, there are numerous ways to create amazing outdoor spaces made for unforgettable get-togethers and family gatherings. With the right style and design choices, you can produce an environment for you and your loved ones to create lasting memories together.
Moreover, hiring a team of professionals in landscaping and hardscape construction will also ensure that your outdoor environment is built durably and efficiently at an affordable rate. At Northern Virginia Landscaping, we provide expert patio installations for residents in Reston, VA and other cities throughout Northern Virginia. Below, we discuss a number of ways you can make your outdoor patio space one that is welcoming for guests and your family, so that you can create lasting, positive and fun memories:
Construct a Private Outdoor Living Space
Many homeowners’ living rooms have become more of an entertainment center, which can present the opportunity to turn the patio into a relaxing, intimate living space to spend time and converse with family and friends. Firstly, add pergolas with surrounding curtains and canopies for wind-cover and privacy, and include warm, low-key lighting to create a more laid-back living space. Then, furnish the interior with warm rugs, plush couches and pillows, along with throws and perhaps a fireplace, or firepit, to produce extra heat and warm up the area on chilly days or evenings.
Form a Natural Core for Your Home
The essential element for this patio concept is centering it around plants, such as trees or planters of flowers, either individually or in rows. If you would like to plant one or more trees, consider leaving an appropriate amount of space around each to allow their roots to stretch out, as well as plant trees you know will grow to a comfortable size for your patio. After deciding what plants you want your patio to center around, place stone pavements, along with matched wood furnishings and home décor, to enhance the nature-centric style you’re going for.
Create Your Own Bistro-esque Dining Area
An attractive design concept for modern homes, begin creating your bistro-style dining area by placing a fence around the perimeter of your patio. Layer the fencing between tall hedges, creating a visual and auditory buffer that will ensure you and your loved ones can spend hours together outdoors without disturbing the neighbors, thus creating an excellent outdoor dining space for family and guests. For dazzling, full-coverage lighting, hanging string lights over both ends of your patio, further creating the atmosphere of a private outdoor bistro.
