Patios South Lanarkshire

Accessory ideas for patios at South Lanarkshire homes

The patio is the unsung hero of many a garden across South Lanarkshire and we think it is about time the humble patio was given the attention it deserves.

With a few inexpensive accessories, the patio can really come alive. Why not take a look at this list, and see what you can use to make your patio a place of brilliant colour…

Patios South Lanarkshire

Cushions and rugs

As well investing in some robust outdoor furniture, why not take some time to add even more colour to the garden with outdoor cushions, beanbags and rugs?

Manufacturing techniques now mean that the plastic, water proof nature of outdoor cushions and rugs is no softer to feel and actually looks very much like the fabrics used inside the home. We suggest taking them indoors when the weather is bad and, if you don’t use the patio during the winter months then we also suggest storing them in heavy duty bags. Providing they are dry when they are put into storage, they will be in perfect shape when you take them out in the spring.

Lighting and candles

Patios at South Lanarkshire are the perfect places to use all kinds of clever lighting, as well as making the space romantic in its ambience with the use of candles.

Safety first however, and so invest in candle holders such as lanterns so that in the event that they are knocked over with a lit candle in them, the naked flame will more than likely be extinguished.

Lighting doesn’t have to be connected to the main either, as many people do worry about the cost of electricity, as well as installation costs. Solar powered lights providing amazing light and thus more and more homeowners are investing in these kinds of lights; opt for fairy type lights, or the fixed lighting points.

Voile panels

If you want add even more colour and romance, why not opt for some inexpensive coloured voile panels. If you have a pergola, these work a treat; simply staple the voile panels around the sounds of the patio to enjoy the instant shade and privacy, without blocking your view of the garden entirely.

For a classic look, opt for completely white voile panels, and team it with brass accessories.

Patios at South Lanarkshire homes should be a haven of peace and tranquillity, an atmosphere and look you can get with some cleverly placed accessories and designs. How will you dress yours?
