With a hearth (bonfire)

Very interesting is the patio with the hearth in the middle. It is made of stone, refractory brick in the form of a bowl. It is cheaper to take a portable fire bowl.

Sofas, armchairs and chairs are placed around the fireplace. The furniture material will suit anybody:

  • benches made of solid wood, pallets and boards;
  • wicker chairs, bamboo chairs and armchairs made of vine.
  • To decorate the interior, you will also need handy means in the form of old car tyres, plastic bottles. Tires also make original furniture and plastic containers - unusual flower vases, garden paths, fences.

    For the floor is allowed to use pebbles, paving tiles, stone.

    Street cinema

    In addition to the area for evening rest, cooking in the open air patio can also serve as a home theater.

    The projector is connected to the receiver and your favorite movie, series, appears on the screen.

    It is important to think through the placement of people and to select the furniture according to it. It is not necessary to install massive sofas or armchairs on a small site. It is enough to do with compact wooden benches and chairs.

    Under the roof (pergola or canopy)

    If the free space allows, it is convenient to divide the patio into several parts: a cooking corner and a dining area under a canopy, and to leave an open area for sunbathing.

    As the roof is necessary for protection against rain, creating shade, you can make it out of budget materials:

  • Cellular polycarbonate;
  • Dense PVC fabric according to the type of tarpaulin;
  • Glass.
  • Buying sheets of corrugated board is not recommended, as the droplets falling on it, will create a lot of noise.

    It will also serve as a roofing and beach umbrella.

    If funds are available, the retractable rain canopy can be made step by step in case of rain. Otherwise, it all depends on the imagination of the owners of the estate.
