A family of five uses this patio for play and relaxing coffee breaks in Decatur, Georgia outside Atlanta. Designer Gina Sims found the lockers on Craigslist and color blocked them for visual appeal. Backpacks, coats and shoes are all neatly contained within. The children's self-portraits hang above. This porch/patio is now super comfortable and inviting; a great place to unwind for both the work-at-home mom and her children.
This outdoor living space features a pavilion over the patio with ample lighting and ceiling fans. The stairs leading up to the patio have embedded landscaping lighting, making this a perfect spot for evening entertaining.
Whatever the season, this amazing back patio on the HGTV Dream Home 2015 is sure to get a lot of use. From entertaining guests, to providing the perfect spot to relax, the stone patio offers comfortable outdoor seating and an exquisite view of the house.
This contemporary covered patio makes for more effective nighttime cooling, allowing the area to stay cooler on average than non-shaded areas. The best areas for permanent shade structures are where you want to create an outdoor room — like a patio or deck — or any space that you want to use for outdoor living.
