This holiday season, patios and outdoor rooms will be ones of the most sought-after rooms in your house. Built mainly for relaxation and recreation, these spots are natural congregation areas for your friends and family to catch up on each other’s lives and bond over the holidays. To make your patio and outdoor room more welcoming and festive this holiday season, here are 5 custom patio design ideas you can easily recreate in your own outdoor space.
1) Lantern Wonderland
Turn the lights of the season into your main tool to create a festive ambiance in your custom patio. Transport everyone to a fantastical realm bathed in a myriad of lights. Transform the room into a kaleidoscope, rendering everything in your custom patio in a different perspective. If you want a holiday feel like no other for your custom patio, this lantern-filled design theme will certainly be interesting!
2) White Hot Holiday
If snow is sparse and your garden has turned gray and brown, a white-hot holiday theme may suit your custom patio. From painting patio furniture white or off-white to using white holiday garlands around your patio posts and beams, create the effect of a White Christmas with decoration.
3) Chill with Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire
Make your holiday season cozier with a gentle fire roaring in your fire pit. Make it sweeter with an array of colorful mugs ready to be filled with some hot chocolate and a tray of chestnuts and marshmallows ready for grilling. Bring out warm blankets and throw pillows to make your custom patio more inviting and comfortable to stay in.
4) Contained Festivity
If your custom patio already has a lot of furniture and you simply do not have time to put together a décor theme, bring in some container plants and recreate it into a miniature Christmas tree. Simply lay down some Christmas conifers or pinecones and hang other iconic holiday decor upon its branches and voila! Just make sure your holiday décor items are light enough for the branches to carry.
5) Flower and Stars
Bring down the galaxy down for the holiday season by putting some Christmas lights and create your favorite constellation against a black background. To provide contrast during daytime, fill every nook and cranny with festive flowers that love to bloom during the holidays. Bonus if they are night bloomers.
