Make Your Patio Stand Out: New Designs & Ideas for 2022 & Beyond
A typical patio stands at a 2×4 concrete slab. And that is enough space for you to wring out your creative juices. You do not need an acres-wide garden to design a beautiful yard in front of your house.
Design experts are now looking into creating functional spaces that breathe practicality and bring you close to nature. Your patio is the best space for you to apply these concepts. Let’s get going.
1. Functional Space for Family Set-Up
Nowadays, people stay at home to work or have a safe and serene place in the presence of loved ones. An outdoor living room gives a sense of togetherness. So, as your year-ender project, why not bring your focus to the concrete spaces surrounded by the greeneries in your garden or front yard.
Think of this word as “functional.” Create a functional family space along a narrow table made of unfinished wood or bare concrete. Make it look permanent on the patio floor, creating a continuum of space from the floors to the tablespace where you sure could feel like you need to be there and gather the fam for dinner or tea in the afternoons.
2. Color Scheme of the Year

3. COVID Adaptive
There is a good takeaway from our experience from the 2021’s pandemic. People begin to look at space differently. Social distancing inspires interior and exterior styles in the way a property or a room is designed.
You can now definitely have ample space to provide each piece of furniture on the patio. A meter gap between summer chairs and the round table creates a sense of safe distance. Even if the world is now healing, you can take away that idea and continue to allot spaces into the lounging set up in your outdoor living rooms.
You may leave the concrete slab on the patio floor empty to breathe. Style it with oceanic concrete stain or coloring, then set up the chairs around its edge with distance for each.
