Patios are the perfect place to relax with a nice hot coffee and a good book. They are also the perfect place to get together with friends and have a BBQ. Of course, if your patio is looking a little dull, it may not be the perfect place to do anything. Over winter we tend to let them go. We use them to store the pet supplies and old shoes, all the things you don’t have room for indoors. You have a patio but you don’t know what to do with it? If your patio doesn’t have a whole lot going for it in terms of decor and ambiance, here are 5 tips to help you out.

Outdoor Banquet Hall
There is nothing more gorgeous than an outdoor banquet hall. This is particularly ideal if you have a backyard with a narrow concrete slab against the wall of your house. You can place a long row of tables and chairs to create a banquet effect. If it’s under a veranda you can hang sand pendant lights to create an inviting ambiance. Another great option is to grow some tree climbers as the roof. Climbers will bring a fresh and fun feel to your outdoor area.
