4. Panoramic shot

The architects of this gorgeous modern home ensured that the patio is a tropical paradise, with enough place to admire the view and party it up with loved ones.

5. Everything included

The patio area located at ground level of this home has everything you could ever need for comfort. The outdoor kitchen is a great addition, while the dining area is perfect for those social meals and of course the brilliant blue swimming pool looks so inviting.

6. For the whole family

A patio or terrace needs to be a relaxing spot where serenity and tranquility can be enjoyed, well this Bohemian inspired textured decor seems to be a favourite for everyone… including your feline friend.

7. Seating

A love seat is a great choice for your decor and while you at it include some lovely illumination and a vertical garden.

8. Rustic ambiance

The patio zone doesn't need to be outside braving the harsh elements of the seasons. An undercover rustic terrace can be used at any time of the day or during any season, so go for that wooden decor and make it authentic.

9. Pergola and greenery

If you are considering an elegant idea for your garden that enhances a peaceful environment, then a wooden pergola surrounded by greenery is a fantastic option.

10. Afternoon sun

Deciding on a location for your patio may require some thought, but if you adore the sunset or enjoy the effect of the afternoon sun for cosiness, then you have your answer.

11. Rocky feeling
