Essentials for Creating a Beautiful Outdoor Room | Outdoor Spaces - Patio Ideas, Decks & Gardens | HGTV
If you enjoy using your outdoor living space primarily in the evening, choose a hue that's visible in low light. White, silver, yellow and light pastels are the easiest colors for the human eye to see at dusk. Pale, smooth hardscape surfaces reflect light and are safer to use. Light flowers or variegated foliage in the garden will add depth to the landscape. Use darker, richer hues as accents
traditional patio by Hursthouse Landscape Architects and Contractors; We're thinking of putting in just a large hot tub and no pool. I like this wall/fountain idea with lattice work cover. Creates privacy and looks a little oasis.
Love the small sized soaking pool with waterfall. Would look great as part of the covered patio idea..... If only I was rich.. I would have this!!!

I love the idea of a small soaking pool (don't do laps) and a hot tub. Really like this set up w multi levels and seating.
Even if your yard is tiny, you can still have a yard that's got it all - a covered nook with a fireplace, spa, small pool for a soak, and a patio to dine on. And no grass to mow! We offer landscaping for big AND small yards in the Minneapolis MN area. http://www.aldmn.com

Add Fire and Water On Deck Make your deck cozy well into the cool seasons with a fireplace or fire pit or even a patio heater. You can also opt for a freestanding patio heater to warm seating areas. Consider a water feature too, such as a small container water garden or fountain. The sound of falling water relaxes listeners and buffers noise from neighbors or the street.

Patio curtains made from drop cloths purchased from Home Depot. Less than $100 for 5 of these curtains and their curtain rods. GREAT idea!!! I added outdoor curtains to my patio this year. It really helped in the Arizona weather
Drop cloth curtains: I have a total of 5 of these curtains on my patio! The drop cloths were less than 10 dollars a piece at Home Depot. (Remember, Home Depot drop cloths do NOT have seams down the middle, Lowe???s drop cloths do.) Here???s a run down of the price of my patio curtains: 5 drop cloths -$50.00 5 sets of ring clips ??? $25.00 metal poles ??? $10.00 hooks ??? $6.00 primer and paint $6.00 Grand Total: $97.00
Dropcloth patio curtains! OMG! this whole new world of drop cloths is making me very happy:)
porch curtains (drop cloth curtains)
Gazebo Dropcloth Curtains
Learn to make these drop cloth curtains What a difference these curtains make to Traci's patio. Traci is a self-proclaimed drop cloth expert. She has made living room curtains and slipcovers from drop cloths. And then she made outdoor curtain panels for her patio. Why drop cloths? Traci loves drop cloths because they are inexpensive and wear well. Plus they come already hemmed (yes!) and they look very nice. Dave and I think they look really great, too. Traci's tips for buying the right drop cloths Traci likes the 6' x 9' drop cloths from Home Depot better than Lowe's because they are seamless (at least at her store). She recommends that you wash the drop cloths before using them. Why? Because they become really soft after washing and they also shrink a little. After having purchased many drop cloths, she noticed that the ones from Home Depot come in two different kinds of fabrics (as shown in the picture below). She likes the fabric in the lower part of the picture the best. Which of the two fabrics do you prefer? What you will need for the project For the curtains One 6' x 9' drop cloth for about every 5 to 6 feet you want to shade One package of clip-rings for each drop cloth (7 clip rings per package) Optional: tiebacks (one per each outdoor curtain panel) For the curtain rod(s) Lengths of half inch metal poles to act as outdoor curtain rods Hooks for hanging the metal poles (see picture below) KILZ primer and white spray paint for protecting and painting the poles An alternative idea is to simply purchase tension rods which would even be easier than the metal rods. No hooks or painting would be needed. How to make the outdoor curtain panels - Traci's method Traci hangs her curtains from half inch metal poles - which are her outdoor curtain rods. In total she needed 6 poles. For the two longer poles (7 feet), she bought two 10 foot poles and cut them down. She spent less than ten dollars total for all the poles. To protect the poles from moisture, Traci painted them with KILZ spray primer. To finish the job, she painted them with a coat of white spray paint. She uses hooks (like shown here) to hold up the curtain rods (poles). The hooks are less than a dollar each. She spray paints them white, too. The hooks are placed to hold up the poles. Looks fairly easy. Think you can do it? Now the curtains are ready to hang. After washing (and ironing) them, Traci hangs them up with ring clips. No sewing involved because the drop cloths are already hemmed. Yeah! When she needs a little extra shade. Traci can extend the curtains. Or she can pull them back with a tieback - like this! Either way, what a nice way to cozy up your porch. Traci has 5 of these curtains on her patio. The total cost for this project (remember, 5 curtains) was less than $100 - which is a steal.
I love the fountain and lighting integrated into this patio.
