Two Most Essential Patio Elements
Each patio is unique, no two alike. Some are big, some small. Some cluttered, others tidy as a pin. Regardless of style and number of decorative patio products on display, the two most essential patio elements are common throughout them all – people and a place to sit them.
Sure, a patio is a wonderful place to sit in solitary introspection but nobody wants to do all that thinking all the time. Patios in general are conducive to all sorts of solitary endeavors – reading, writing, painting or drawing, knitting – but they’re an ideal spot to mingle, too.
The people you invite to your patio are most likely to be people whose company you enjoy. We don’t usually invite undesirable company into the sanctuary of our homes and the patio is an extension of our homes. It’s the one place we get to pick and choose who comes in and who stays away.
We use patios for parties and celebrations of all sorts. They’re great places to hang out with family and friends and many people turn their patios into places that resemble outdoor rooms, replete with toys and games, electronics, and lots of other fun stuff. Some of them even have room for serving up food and beverages to a crowd.
The people who people your patio are probably friends and extended family members who come for a visit but they’re a great place for just the ‘household’ family to relax, have fun, and enjoy each other’s company, too. Many happy childhood memories come with patio settings.
It’s really nice to have patio space available, whether it’s used or not, but it’s the people that really spice things up.
And now that you’ve got all these delightful people assembled, where will they sit?
