Design your Space and Establish your ThemeOnce you have solidified a budget, its time to start piecing together the theme for your patio. This is where your Pinterest board will come in handy. Ask yourself some questions while you are designing the space and pin the images that resonate with your answers.
Is this design proportional to your home?
Do you want to add a Gazebo or will that be overkill?
What type of lighting would you like to incorporate?
What sort of textures would you like to have? Stone, wood, burlap, wicker?
Are you going more for that rustic, woody look or that beachy, vibrant look?
What kind of plants would compliment your theme the best?
What kind of outdoor furniture would you like?
Our recommendation for outdoor furniture is Wicker Furniture because it is extremely durable and long-lasting. Check out our blog post on What is Wicker and What is it Made From. It is quite fascinating!

Depending on how elaborate you want your patio space to be and on your budget, you may need to hire a Builder to help with the more complex projects.
