If you have a backyard, then use it. You can divide the space into several areas since it would be too much to have a single space. You can create a series of sheltered spaces and make a sitting area with chair or benches and maybe a coffee table in the middle and you can also organize a lounge space with a couple of lounge chairs where you can relax in the sunny days. Opt for simple and sustainable outdoor furniture.{found on site}.

A nice patio is a wonderful addition to any house. It’s a space that you can use all summer and where you can enjoy dinner with family and friends but where you can also relax, chat, enjoy a cold drink and simply feel lucky to be there. If your house doesn’t already have a patio then it’s quite difficult to add one. You could use an already existing space and make some changes or you could simply build a separate structure on your property.{picture source}.
