For most homeowners, a welcoming patio is the epicenter of entertainment and quality time with friends and family. However, those patios can quickly and easily degrade into an embarrassing state, and spending time there, especially with those outside the immediate family, is no longer a viable option.
Though they may be desperately needed, maybe people often hesitate to upgrade their patios, mistakenly assuming that every outdoor project will run into tens of thousands of dollars. But you can find cheap patio design ideas even if you’re on the tightest budget.
Here are a few home patio design ideas to get the ball rolling so another summer doesn’t pass by without you getting the most out of your patio space!
First Things First, Set Your Limits
If you’re spraying for flies, mosquitoes, wasps, or other flying insects, apply CSI Cyzmic directly to walls, ceilings, window screens, and other resting areas as a residual surface treatment. It will get rid of flies in the garage, storage sheds, and carports and is excellent for a fly problem in the house.
Remember that updating your patio is like any other home improvement project you take on: It increases the value of your property by giving it more curb appeal, and, even more importantly, it’s an investment in personal enjoyment with your family and guests—something to which you can’t attach a monetary value.
Low-cost patio designs on a budget
There are countless cheap patio design ideas to be discovered, even within a budget. The best low-cost patio designs are the ones that make the most significant difference without substantial investment.
Try on these three home patio design ideas for size:
1. Add some inexpensive flowers
Decorate the areas around your patio with colorful perennials, and watch them bloom every spring. Flowering plants add natural beauty, and you can have attractive plants without spending too much money. Alternatively, consider a trellis with climbing vines or perhaps a few small pots and a handful of large planters. Not only will flowers add color and vibrancy, but they’ll help the ecosystem by helping pollinators!
2. Revamp the Space with Outdoor Furniture
Purchasing a few pieces of fashionable outdoor furniture will change the appearance and functionality of the entire patio. If you can’t afford all the new pieces, clean up and spray-paint an old rusty table and several chairs
,—or seek out unexpected treasures at thrift & consignment shops— and you’ll reinvigorate the entire environment of your backyard.
3. Backyard Lighting
Outdoor lights have always been a favorite for porches and patios. They’re inviting and celebratory, providing a warm glow that keeps the light from being intrusive. Hang up a string of white cafe lights or lanterns, or use torch lamps for an easy way to make your patio a go-to spot for evening fun and entertainment.
Welcome Your Friends & Keep Out the Insects
Nothing will suck the fun out of your backyard get-together quicker than a few annoying mosquito bites or flies hovering around the hors d’oeuvres. Mist away all those flying, crawling and biting insects to enjoy your renovated patio to the fullest.
