What Makes Patio Décor Special

Patio décor refers to the accessories that are used to make a patio space feel more homely. You can tell when a patio has been thought about in terms of décor because it feels like an extension to the home’s living room or family room! The patio feels like another room of the house – it’s comfortable yet stylish to enjoy the warmer weather.

Fun Facts:

In Spanish, the patio literally means “court open to the sky” which originates from the “communal pasture”. It is most commonly known as an outdoor courtyard space, an area directly adjoining a house. The word “patio” also refers to the paving that provides the hard surface for this outdoor area.

As interior design has evolved massively over the last century, and outdoor living has become part of our normal lives, the patio is regularly seen as an extension to the internal rooms of the house. And therefore more and more decor has been created for homeowners to use to decorate their patio spaces. String lights, lanterns, outdoor cushions, and outdoor rugs are just some of the modern decor items that are frequently used to add decor to patio spaces.
