It’s All About The Modern Patio

Sleek, contemporary patios are the ideal place to spend your summers outdoors this season. Every homeowner should consider their patio like an extra room, a place to rest and relax with family and friends. Patios always look great with sleek accessories like durable chairs, coffee tables, cozy lights, comfortable pillows, and an array of other items that complete your look. We know some patios go high end with fireplaces and flat screen TVs while others remain low key with just a few pillows, decorative trays, and chairs. Regardless of your look though, make your patio a place for you to enjoy all summer long. Below are some great examples of modern patios that achieve just that.

Surrounded by beautiful landscaping, this serene Seattle patio is perfect for a quiet dinner for two or with your best couple friends. Gather up a few bottles of wine and start some music to achieve the perfect atmosphere for a delicious meal. The surrounding glass windows not only allow light to filter in, but also enable you to enjoy the landscaping from inside.

This patio is so superb because of the highly modern patio set and incredible shrubbery. Perfectly manicured, the surrounding landscaping only enhances this highly unique look.

Multi-level patios like this one are truly a luxury. On the top tier of this patio, you have a glass-enclosed space where guests can look down on the luxurious pool. Then, you have strategically placed conversation areas that would be ideal for a large gathering, like a birthday bash or high-end charity event. Of course, the sleek contemporary patio tiles lead down to a custom pool and waterfall, an unbeatable place to spend the summer lounging in luxury.

Of course, I cannot get enough of patios that include fireplaces in their design. This one in particular is so sleek and sophisticated, creating intense warmth and a great atmosphere. I can easily envision a couple sitting around the fire enjoying a class of wine. Or, if you have little ones, another benefit of an outdoor fireplace is that you can have gatherings even in the wintertime, including roasting marshmallows (which is everyone’s favorite winter snack!)

Sometimes, it’s the furniture that makes a space truly modern. These bubble-like lime green chairs are truly unique and provide quite a contrast to the stark, contemporary home behind them. They are also a helpful reminder that your patio should and can be a fun space for you to relax and enjoy your home.

We hope you enjoyed these 5 carefully selected modern patios. Remember, investing in sprucing up your patio is always a great idea, as it’s an extension of your home and can easily count as an additional room. Plus, they are great for resale value! All you need is great lighting, durable furniture, fun colors, bright accessories, and people you love to truly make your patio an integral part of your home.{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5&6,7 and 8}.
