The patio is probably the most comfortable place to spend summer evenings. During hot summer days and cool summer nights the patio becomes the lovely haven where you can relax and entertain guests. All these being considered, designing the space so it will look amazing is the right way to go.

In case you don’t want or can’t afford to invest a lot, you can give the patio a rustic feel. Consider putting up some wiring and hang light curtains from it to protect you from sun and mosquitos. Consider a wooden crate for a table and storage space and use some barrels for sitting. A cast iron bench with proper upholstery and some matching throw pillows can complete the look.

Wood All Over

In case you enjoy being crafty you can always use wood scraps or wood pallets to create the perfect furniture setting for a homey but less expensive patio design. The possibilities are endless , you just have to be careful for the surface to be smooth because wood splinters can ruin all the fun. A DYI upholstery and carefully placed pillows and covers can make the ensemble look perfectly cozy.
