Designing the Luxury Patio of your Dreams
Transform your patio into the most envied gathering space in town by designing the luxury patio of your dreams. The trick to designing a luxury outdoor area is to treat the outdoor space as an extension of your home. Create an outdoor room with maximum impact by following these tips below.
Create Separate Seating Areas
The most important element to designing a luxury patio is purchasing high-end patio furnishings. Most people place either an outdoor dining set or conversation set on their patio. However, in order to truly create a luxury space, it's best to think of your patio as both a living room and dining room. One area of your patio should have an outdoor sofa; this'll be the living room portion of your patio that is designated for entertaining and conversation. The second area of your patio (preferably stationed by your grill or outdoor kitchen), should have a dining set. In the dining area, you'll serve guests their meals when entertaining outdoors.
If you're following this double-room design, any outdoor sofa in our Riviera series paired with our modern Cartagena occasional table would be a divine setup for the living room area. Create a breathtaking dining area by purchasing the 10 piece Holly & Martin Laguna dining set. By designing your luxury patio with these items, or items similar in nature, you're creating two outdoor rooms with plenty of seating for even the largest of gatherings.
Bring the Indoors Out
There's no need to go without your indoor amenities when lounging on your patio. Technology and interior design have come a long way in recent years, making it possible to take along almost every indoor amenity you'd like into the outdoors. In a semi covered patio, it's possible to have an outdoor television (weatherproof) and a surround-sound audio system to experience family movie night beneath the stars. Mounting the television above an outdoor wood-burning fireplace will make this area the focal point of your luxury patio.
Take a cue from the South and install outdoor ceiling fans on your patio to provide a cooling breeze on even the most humid of summer days. Mount outdoor curtains to further filter out the harsh sun and unwanted heat. Your outdoor cooking area can benefit from a built-in wine cooler and a handmade outdoor pizza oven. The options are truly endless where luxury amenities are concerned.
