Whether you have a west- or east-facing backyard, we’ve got the perfect backyard patio idea for you. Find creative ideas that utilizes your backyard patio for different times of the day below!
If your backyard is not in the direct pathway of the sunrise, consider creating a breakfast nook right in your backyard. Enjoy your breakfast more overlooking your garden as the early sunlight filters through your yard while the early morning breeze brings you tidings of good luck for the whole day ahead.
When you’ve just finished your busy day or week, retreat to an outdoor oasis. Fill your backyard with greenery, whether it’s a trellis privacy screen, beams with air plants or potted plants. An oasis would not be complete without an ambient soundtrack provided by either a water feature like a miniature fountain or stream or wind chimes.
If you’re fond of taking afternoon naps, and your backyard has enough shady spots to hang a hammock in, then explore converting your backyard into your al fresco siesta spot. Nothing beats a fresh breeze and the gentle humming of the birds and the bees to lull you to sleep for a quick power nap. Wake up feeling more refreshed and recharged to face the rest of the day.
If sporting a drink or two is your way of relaxing after a day’s work, then having a patio bar to lounge at will make your recharging time more pleasant. You can have bar stools lined up which can easily be stacked together and put away when not in use. Your bar countertop can also double as a storage area for all your liquor and glassware. You can opt to have a shelf for your cooler or ice box or have a space customized for a small refrigerator. It can also be outfitted with a sink so washing and cleaning your glasses will be as easy as preparing a drink.
