A great backyard patio starts with the basics – an outdoor dining set, a seating group, maybe a grill – but once you’ve got that down, how do you go about adding a bit more character to your space?

Anyone can have a simple furniture arrangement on their patio, but transforming that space into a warm and inviting extension of your home takes a bit more. These backyard patio ideas can help add some personality to your space and make it the best patio it can be.

Keep It Green

Plant life is a natural backyard addition that can bring a lot to the table both aesthetically and functionally.

Shrubs, vines, trees or hedges can add more than just the beauty of their flowers or leaves; they can help cool an area with shade, act as space dividers or provide a bit more privacy (if they’re tall enough). You can also select fruit or vegetable plants to add to your space, so you get all the benefits of plants plus a seasonal snack!

All of these features and different plant types can help you create an expressive botanical landscape that is unique to your patio, especially when enhanced with additional outdoor decor.

Add Some Art

Once you’ve filled out your patio with plant life, it’s time to move on to manmade additions.

Few people settle for undecorated rooms inside their home, so why should an outdoor space be any different? You might be surprised at your options for outdoor art; from durable outdoor canvas prints and metal wall art to freestanding garden sculptures and hanging wind chimes, you have nearly infinite choices.

Outdoor table accents such as candles or lanterns can also be a great idea to complement a seating group or a dining space. In terms of style, rustic, woodsy, traditional or nautical themes all work quite well in patio spaces.

But really, it’s all about what look appeals to you and makes you feel at home in your outdoor space.

Bring on the Ambiance

While the visual appeal of plants and artwork goes a long way, adding the ambiance of a relaxing sound to your patio can go even further in creating a luxurious and relaxing retreat. The aforementioned wind chimes can add a gentle musical tinkle, or accents such as bird feeders or bird baths can bring the cheerful chirps of feathered friends.

But, the pinnacle of outdoor ambiance is a fountain or water feature. These can add a lot of atmosphere with their diverse styles as well as soothing sounds and cooling abilities that make the whole patio a bit more comfortable.

On their own, each of these elements may seem simple, but together they are the finishing touches that add up to a beautiful and comfortable living space. So, try out some of these backyard patio ideas on your own yard and create an outdoor escape that speaks to you.
