Summer is about taking time off, enjoying good weather and healthy relaxation time. Well at least it should be. This is why for today we decided to put together 25 of the most inspiring outdoor patios ideas out there that we believe could make your summer a dream one. A patio is an outdoor space that adjoins a residence, usually in the backyard of the home. It’s generally used for outdoor dining and/or recreational purposes. While a patio/deck space is most often level with the home’s access, it can have multiple pavilions and levels, creating different areas for different uses. As you can see from the photos below, most of them are located in picturesque environments, whether we are talking about lush gardens, natural ponds or fantastic pools. Examples include al fresco dining areas, outdoor kitchens, stone bars and seating areas with outdoor sofas. Take your time, enjoy the photos, and at the end tell us which one you like best!
