How to Add Character to Your Patio
The basic elements of your patio are very important in the creation of a distinctive design that’s individual in an interesting and unusual way, while providing the function you want. When you consider how characterless an empty area of concrete is, it’s easy to see that the items you choose will be what makes your patio unique. Whether the space you have is large or small, you can devise an open-air plan for relaxing and entertaining that will showcase your one-of-a-kind flair, and create a specific visual impact. However, your patio should always complement the building’s structure, blending the transition from the indoors to the outside seamlessly. Always consider the architectural style along with its color, and warmer or cooler undertones. Color can also play a significant role in the atmosphere you create for your patio. Brighter hues may promote more fun, social spaces, whereas neutrals may project elegance and formality. Therefore, how the area will be used may be a primary consideration, whether for formal or casual al fresco dining, relaxation around the pool, or to be able to transition easily from one function and formality to another. One simple way to achieve great versatility is to go with a basic neutral color palette and yet provide vibrant pops of color with cushions, pots, or umbrellas. A large commercial cantilever umbrella can also provide the important function of protecting you and your guests from the harsh UV rays of the sun and provide shelter from sudden downpours. These larger umbrellas can provide a much more comfortable environment, keeping you covered regardless of which direction the sun may be facing. Since these free-standing umbrellas are supported by a pole set off on one side, they can also add to the adaptability of your patio layout, allowing it to be effortlessly changed and your umbrella shade placed virtually anywhere you’d like it. Cantilever umbrellas can be placed on the edge of your pool, seating or dining area and simply adjusted for your comfort.
