You love your old family home;especially the outdoor patio area that has been the venue for countless days of cloud gazing, daydreaming, and just lazing about.
Yet, with time, you’ve started to feel like the good old patio has lost its edge. Sure, it’s still comfy and beautiful. But it could do with a bit of zhuzhing. After all, despite its classic look, there’s no reason why it can’t be upgraded.
Here are some tips from the experts at PatioHQ on how you can turn your outdoor area into a magical place once more!
Clean it Up
Even before you turn to the overall design of your patio, give it a good scrubbing first. This includes your old furniture, the plant pots, the walls and the fences —anything that hasn’t stood the test of time. Transport plants from older, chipped pots to new terra cotta pots. Put insome elbow grease and brush away the metal furniture that’s rusted around the corner. Clear out the weeds and throw away anything that gives your patio a messy, unkempt look.
Upholster Your Existing Furniture
Got some pieces of furniture left from your spring-cleaning project? Spruce them up by having them upholstered and painted. If possible, change the fabrics and replace them with better quality fabrics and material. And don’t be afraid to be creative with your choices. There’s nothing better than a colorful patio!
Add a Flame Feature
We aren’t just recommending this because we absolutely love flame elements in patio design! Quite popular this year and the years before, a flame feature in your patio, like a fire table or lanterns, has become a norm, mostly becausehomeowners combine themwith other natural elements like a Zen garden and a small fountain or pond to really elevate their patios.

Feel like your patio furniture is not as fashionable as when you first got it? Sell it or donate it, and buy a new patio set.
