Creative Backyard Patio Ideas

Japanese Theme with Koi pond

Patios are wonderful to have, especially if you live in Australia where the weather is mostly warm all year around. If you create great patio space, you will have an area that can be considered a type of extra living space in your home. 

When creating a patio, you will need to think about what type of theme you are trying to create and the function of the patio. Are you looking to create a type of “man-cave” where you can have your buddies over or are you looking to create a calm and relaxing area where you can relax with your significant other or enjoy a book, maybe a glass of wine? Once you have decided how the space will be used, you can begin looking at different ideas for your patio.

If you are looking for the “man cave” patio you may want to think about a covered patio with an awning or umbrella to keep the sun off of you and out of your eyes while you are hanging around outside or grilling a steak on the BBQ.  If you have a waterproof covering you will be able to create a space to entertain even when it’s raining.  

When creating patio space that can be used as an extra room you may want to consider using a theme from inside your home to decorate your patio space. These patio tips will help you create an outdoor space that all your neighbors will envy and all of your friends will be awed by. If you use a lot of bright colors in your home you should continue decorating your patio with bright colors. 

If you have a roof over your patio you may want to think about a fully stocked bar. This can be very convenient if you have children as they can get a drink when they want it rather than having to mess up the kitchen.  It also serves as a convenience for the adults to sit outside and enjoy the night air. 

Another great patio idea is to use different types of lighting and wood paneling to create effects. If you are going to use your patio as a multipurpose space you might want to consider adding lighting that will be able to change to create different atmospheres that fit the theme of your event or even your mood. 

Lights with a dimmer will work the best for your patio. Using dimmer lights will allow you to create the atmosphere that you are looking for whether you are looking for a romantic (dim/candlelight effect) or a bright lights, let’s get this party started type of effect.
