    This outdoor patio from Houston-based Mary Patton Design has rough stone pavers that contrast with the white brick exterior of the home. “There are a few fun ways to style your outdoor space,” Patton says. “My first tip is to add pops of color, be it in the outdoor chairs, floral arrangements, or other decor. Especially for summer, it seems fitting to utilize bright colors in a space that’s inspired by nature.” Here, Patton adds color in the form of a pair of bright yellow folding garden chairs and a navy blue outdoor sconce.

How can I make my patio look nice?

The simplest way to make your patio look nice is to decorate with as much care and attention as you would any indoor space. Add stylish outdoor furnishings such as a dining table and chairs, pair of loungers, or an outdoor couch covered in weatherproof fabric that would look as good in your living room. An outdoor rug in a bright color or interesting pattern will add flair. And don’t forget to pay attention to lighting, choosing balanced lighting that is bright enough so it’s well lit for nighttime use, but warm enough so that it feels relaxing and inviting. Adding plants or landscaping is a nice touch that will help connect the space to the outdoors. For everything you need to get your patio summer-ready, check out our roundup of all-star yard and patio products.


How do you make a simple patio?

You can create a simple patio by sticking to a square format and using uniform pavers of the same size that won’t require cutting or finesse to install. You can also use inexpensive pea gravel to install a simple patio. More experienced DIYers might try working with materials such as flagstone or brick.

What is the easiest type of patio to put in?

In general the easiest type of patio to put in is usually one using either loose materials such as gravel that doesn’t have to look perfect, just level and relatively even; or a patio laid with pavers of the same size that don’t require cutting. The easiest option also depends on whether you are planning to hire someone to install a patio or DIY it. Patios are generally made from materials such as concrete, brick, pavers, flagstone, tile, cut stone, or loose materials such as gravel. Be sure to take into account the look you want and your skill level or budget for hiring someone to build your patio when determining the simplest path forward for your patio.
