With the right design and features, an outdoor deck can serve as an extension of the house. Providing you with an outdoor oasis where you can entertain and relax.

From cozy fire pits to outdoor kitchens, from comfortable seating to stylish decor, the design possibilities for patio decks are endless. Here are some of the top patio design ideas for you to consider.

Fire pits can make patio decks comfortable year-round

Over the past few years, patio fire pits have become increasingly popular. And there’s a reason for that! A patio fire pit will keep you warm at night and make your backyard feel like a cozy campground. On cool spring days or crisp fall nights, a deck fire pit is a great place to hang out with friends and family.

Of course, it’s important to be safe while using a fire pit. Depending on the patio deck, it is important to choose the right fire pit.

The Best Outdoor Patio Lights

What are the best outdoor patio lights? There is no standard answer to this question. Depending on the design style of the patio or porch, just choose the right lighting.

A porch covered with fairy lights, for example, invites you to relax with its soft glow and twinkling lights. Whether you hang them on a tree or on a pergola, string lights create a calm, peaceful atmosphere.

For a more rustic porch look, you can use lanterns to illuminate your porch with more light. Metal lanterns, bamboo, or wooden fixtures that look less elaborate can give your patio a more homey feel.

For the middle of the patio or deck, you can place real or fake candles in the right places to add light and make it a calm place to relax.

Color Matching for Deck Furniture

When choosing the color of your patio furniture, it is important to coordinate with your surroundings to form a palette that works well together.

Pay attention to the trees and flowers on your patio, as well as the features of your home and porch, to find the right colors. The most important thing is to choose colors and patterns that match your own style.

You can purchase some beautiful teak chairs and place them on a patterned patio. Bright outdoor cushions can break up the darkness of wood and stone.

If you don’t like bright colors, you can give your outdoor area a Floridian patio color scheme with soft pastels. Add planters, pillows, and blankets in shades of coral pink and Biscayne green to complete the look.

As you add color to your deck with chair cushions and other decorative items, you can change the look of the space from season to season to match your ever-changing style.

Make a small deck look bigger

When you want to make a patio look larger, follow the less-is-more rule. Too many decorative items can make a cluttered patio and a smaller space. Whenever possible, decorate your patio with a smaller number of simple and sophisticated decorations. This will not make it feel crowded and will give the impression of a larger yard.

Use the space around you and keep things simple. If your deck has a great view, put your chairs at an angle to make the most of it. Also, try putting a small grill on the side of your porch to give your guests more space to enjoy the outdoors.

Hang strings of lights or tall plants on your porch to draw attention to it and make it look larger. Add plants in different locations on your patio to make it look longer.
