Want to transform your outdoor space with some fresh patio decor ideas? As time-consuming as it may sound, you’d be surprised how the simplest of change can make a huge difference to your space!
Transforming your empty patio doesn’t have to be costly or energy-consuming. A few DIY design ideas for patios and a few thoughtful investments can turn your empty patio into a beautiful outdoor space that you never want to leave.
Here are a few patio decor ideas that you can try, which include affordable landscaping tips and elements to look out for to ensure you’re maximising your patio space.
1. Adequate amount of shade
Although it’s relaxing and healing to spend time out in the sun, sometimes it’s just way too hot and humid in Singapore. Make sure your space provides an adequate amount of shade on your patio by installing a big umbrella or Ziptrak® blinds to block the sun and glare from your balcony or windows.
If your patio space is limited, you can create a simple shade structure and grow some vines and smaller trees that will provide you with the perfect canopy of shade while blocking the strong UV rays at the same time.
Water-resistant furniture can be a good investment for your patio or backyard, especially living in a tropical country where the weather is unpredictable. Although foldable plastic chairs and tables are a local favourite, they are not the most aesthetically pleasing.
Opt for our sintered stone outdoor tables for your perfect al-fresco dining desires. Not only do they keep dry after the rain, but they are also heat and stain-resistant, making them the perfect set of outdoor furniture. One tip to further transform your outdoor space is to get a set of high tables and chairs so that you and your family get to wine and dine while admiring your garden.
Another cool design idea for patios would be to equip your patio with a semi-outdoor rocking chair. Like the Comfort Furniture Alaya Rocking Outdoor Lounger, these ergonomic rocking chairs not only provide comfort as you relax outdoors, but it’s also weather-resistant and easy to clean.
3. Add decorating and mosquito-repelling plants
One of the simplest and budget-friendly patio decor ideas would be to add plants to your space! With some easy-to-grow herbs and some small plants on an espalier, you’ve got natural patio decor which leaves the space cosy and well-ventilated.
If you’re worried about mosquitos breeding, fret not! You can plant mosquito-repelling plants and herbs like citronella, lavender, mint, rosemary, basil and Nasturtiums, just to name a few. These plants are relatively easy-to-grow and thrive under direct sunlight, so very low maintenance is needed.
4. Lightings, swings and relaxation
There is more to outdoor spaces than just plants and weather-resistant furniture! Having the right lighting and decorations such as candles, swings and rattan fixtures also play into creating the perfect patio paradise.
Tip: Wrap twinkling lights around trees, plants or balcony railings to create a beautiful and cosy balcony to chill in in the evenings.
