A patio on our home provides a great deal of effective and inviting extra living space for our family and friends to sit outside and relax, enjoy lazy afternoons or barbecue evenings, whatever the mood. Home furniture for the patio will turn any event into hours of pleasure if they are comfortable and practical. Patio furniture décor will depend on the space you have available. It would be ideal if you had space for two types of areas, a conversation area with small type of coffee table and chairs plus an informal dining area with the right amount of shade available for the day.

A theme will make the mood
It is also a clever idea to introduce a theme when it comes to your patio furniture and follow the theme when it comes to your furniture and accessories. For instance if you have a swimming pool you could add a beach theme and buy blue and yellow fabrics for the patio This will add to the feel and ambience of the patio and set the tone for the entertaining that will takes place there.
Plants enhance any space
Plants on the patio go a great way to add colour and contrast to your outdoor living space. To get the most out of your plants you could mix both flowers and plants such as ivy or trailing plants. Hanging baskets with cascades of flowers flowing out and down will add a great tropical feel to the whole area; they make an astonishing difference to the way a patio looks, sometimes a real tropical feel.
Accessories make a huge difference
Whether you have a swimming pool or not, the sound of trickling water is a real turn-on for the whole outdoor patio experience. With the right plants and the right type of patio furniture with colourful cushions and accessories, the outdoor patio is going to be a place where you might not want the night to end. You could go further by placing scented candles around or coloured solar lights which are also greatly effective. You could also hang string lights around the top of the patio to match your chosen theme.
Once you have settled on the plants, the furniture and the lighting, you might want to extend the theme into your table decorations. Your table cloths, place mats, plates and glasses could all be the in line with your beach theme or whatever theme you have chosen. You could get old fishing baskets to hold the napkins, some goblets and a pitcher for serving water. Because your guests might be relishing in your great décor on your patio, they could well end up staying through the night. You might put out decorative plates and colourful coffee mugs for an early morning cup of coffee and croissants.
