Patio ideas to inspire connection this summer

It has been a long, tough winter and your outside patio and residential umbrellas are probably in need of some upgrading and maintenance. It’s time to get your patio ready for connecting with loved ones and enjoying some fun and sun again. Need some ideas to spruce up your patio? We have patio ideas to help you strengthen your connections and enjoy a well-deserved summer. 

Comfy seating areas

Add adequate seating arrangements on every side of your patio by purchasing or increasing chairs, lounges, and tables. Break seating areas up into different sections, such as an area with tables and chairs for outside dining and an area with additional seating with comfy cushions and shading to encourage socializing.

Add a bar

What better way to welcome summer than to incorporate a bar into your patio area. Bar’s are fun, inviting, and a good way to quench your guests’ thirsts in the summer heat. Add an umbrella to tables to match drink umbrellas for a fun touch.

An outdoor kitchen

Everyone loves an outdoor barbecue but the set-up and clean-up can be tedious. Make life easier by creating an outdoor kitchen with a grill and adequate tables. Adding seating nearby will encourage guests to socialize and get involved in the cooking. Don’t forget to ensure your guests and cook are well-shaded.

Light it up

Adding ambient lighting will make after-dark entertaining so much more enjoyable. LED candles, nightlights, or even starlight lights on umbrellas can create a beautiful atmosphere for your guests. Another great idea is to string fairy lights on the inside of your umbrella’s open canopy.

Pretty planters

Adding a range of planters will strike up attention and create a beautiful vibe to your patio. Mix and match different pot plants, flowers, roses, and even ornaments to stand out from the crowd. Some plants may thrive in direct sunlight but others may not be ideal for harsh summer elements. Protect your plants by using shaded areas or umbrellas.

Add some color

Brighten up your patio by adding accessories and furniture to match the colors of the rainbow. Bright colors inspire joyous moods and match the happiness that comes with the summer sunshine. You can paint your existing furniture, or accessories or buy all new items. If you aren’t brave enough for this, adding colorful umbrellas might do the trick.

Umbrella’s and shading

Perhaps the most versatile and useful items you will need are adequate umbrellas. Umbrellas can be added to all areas of the patio – the kitchen, seating, and even pool area. Nobody wants to be left burning their skin in the summer sun and umbrellas will not offer your guests protection, but create an aesthetically appealing area for them to gather.
