Relaxing: though it is not many people who relax on their patios (since most have turned theirs' into domestic 'dumping' sites), the truth of the matter is that one of the main purposes for which patios are designed is to provide sites for relaxation. It follows, if you are one of those who are guilty of turning their patios into dumping sites that you need to rehabilitate the patio, if you are to make it suitable for relaxation. This would involve getting rid of the stuff you have dumped there for which there is no conceivable use, storing the rest of the stuff in an orderly manner (if you have to store it there), and then installing furniture suitable for relaxation. Once this is effectively done, you may come to realize that of all 'rooms' in your home, it is the patio that makes for the most ideal place to relax and pass time.
Storing stuff: the patio can be used for storing stuff that you can't find any other space to store inside of the house. But it is essential to differentiate 'storage' from 'dumping' of stuff into the patio. Sometimes, through the use of innovative furniture (such as the so-called 'storage benches'), it is possible to keep stuff inside of the patio whilst still preserving space for other uses, such as relaxation and growing of patio plants.
If you live in a climate zone where temperatures exceed 80 degrees, it is worth investing in some sort of shading. A good quality market patio umbrella will protect you and your patio furniture from prolonged exposure to direct sun, which can result in discomfort, sunburns and faded furniture. Garden umbrellas come in a variety of colors and patterns that can visually transfer your outdoor space. Power base patio umbrellas, such as the Milano Pro Offset Umbrella, are exceptionally easy to use and transport because they have a built in rotating device with foot pedal and two built in hand grips for easy lifting. These top of the line patio umbrellas will keep you cool while you enjoy your light meal or summer cocktail on the patio. If you want to spruce up your patio and extend your patio furniture usage into the night, consider purchasing the auto-tilt patio umbrella with LED lights that provide a soft night time glow.
