Poolside Patio Designs
So you have a pool in your backyard. By itself, it’s already a good element to improve the look and feel of your entire yard. But why stop there?
You can actually enhance the design of your backyard by adding a poolside patio. Picture this: when the weather is good, you can sit beside the pool, pull out your favorite book, and lounge on your comfortable patio furniture. While the time away, have your afternoon siesta, or spend time with your significant other, enjoying the beauty of the outdoors within the confines of your home.
If these thoughts entice you, then take a look at these amazing poolside patio designs for your inspiration:
The Garden of Eden Theme
Who would have thought that a garden this beautiful can exist in the middle of the urban city? The stone grotto waterfall makes the pool appear as if it’s flowing from a natural source instead of artificially-made. Bordered by trees and shrubs, it would make anyone feel as if he or she is walking in the Garden of Eden.
Covered Poolside Patio
On a hot summer day, you’d sometimes want to chill it out by the pool after swimming, and relax while breathing in the fresh air. However, too much exposure to the glaring sun can burn your skin to a crisp. Well, here’s a patio design inspiration for you: you can set up a covered poolside patio to do away from nasty sunburn.
This particular design is made of stone walls with a cabana on the right side, where you can change clothes instead of dripping water on the floor of your house.
In this Italian-themed poolside patio by Thom Oppelt, you see orange patio chairs balancing the otherwise boring stone design. Italian designs are fond of antique, rust-colored furniture and accessories. If you want this kind of theme for your poolside patio, look for stone-made pieces of furniture in hues of gray, rust, brown or beige. Balance them with dim lights or a patio umbrella.
Beauty in Contrast
Water and fire are two of the contrasting elements in the world. Yet this design by Randy Angell successfully combined the two to produce a wonderful contrast, giving the owner a tranquil feel for his or her poolside patio. The bamboos near the wall put in the element of earth, and enhance the overall look of peace and serenity in the midst of a jungle.
Even if you’re not taking a dip in the pool, you can simply sit on the chairs and stare at the wonderful combination of trees and shrubs creating a wall for this patio’s entirety. The fire pit in the middle rekindles memories of beach summer nights with bonfires and fire dancers.
If you want this kind of theme for your home, make sure to take into consideration the concepts of balance and proper combination. That way, even if you’re using a lot of accessories, you will not overwhelm the eyes of people appreciating your patio design.
Do you now have an idea of how you want your poolside patio to look? You can base your themes on the ones mentioned above, or you can come up with your own. The important thing is that you will come home to a sight so inviting you can’t wait to jump in the pool.
