With sunny days and long bright evenings upon us, our Patios and Gardens are becoming more prominent. Whether we like it or not we spend a lot of time there, and the kids certainly do, so its important to give it attention this time of year, and get ready for “SUMMER”.
If you are lucky enough to have the Patio Area off the kitchen, with plenty of glass and views of the garden, of course south facing, and direct access from kitchen then your on the “pigs back”. This is the best place for a patio if possible, making it easier for B.B.Qs and entertaining, and even kiddie parties keeping the mess outside, and still within quick reach of the kitchen. But most of us are not that lucky so try and keep it as close to the kitchen as possible.
The Patio Area should flow from indoors to outdoors with our Interior Style and colour scheme, making them as harmonious as possible, especially when the patio is visible from the house. This then becomes our outdoor area.
