15 Great Ideas That Will Make Your Patio Awesome This Summer.

Having a great outdoor space can be like adding another room to your home. If done right, you can relax in the sunshine, dine al fresco, and invite friends over for magical wine-fueled dinner parties adorned with twinkle lights and creative decor.

If you've got some outdoor space but are unsure how to make it look amazing, check out these 15 DIY ideas to totally upgrade your patio - you'll be sipping spiked lemonade and lounging in the fresh air in no time.

#1. Boho chic

Interesting tapestries and bright pillows can transform your patio to a bohemian paradise in no time. Add plenty of overgrown plants to complete the look.

#2. Wigwam tent

This creates a private space on your patio, and is also a great idea for those who have children. Use bright patterned fabric to make this patio ten extra special.

#3. Monchromatic texture

If you like to keep your color scheme clean and simple, try to experiment with texture with your patio decor. Lace curtains and ridged, knotted pillows can look great together.

#4. Vintage tiki

For anyone who loves a good tiki bar, now you can have one in your home. Collect masks and bamboo fixtures to complete this look.

#5. Garden room

If throw pillows and wall art isn't your thing, turn your entire outdoor space into a garden instead. You can even grow non-invasive ivy on your walls.

#6. Cactus heaven

Cacti make great decorations, especially when put in different sized terracotta pots. Bonus: They're really hard to kill, so they're great plants for people who don't like to spend too much time gardening.

#7. Beach backyard

The ambitious patio designer might want to try this idea, filling the entirety of the patio floor with sand. Just make sure you figure out a way to keep it from tracking into the house.

#8. String lights up

Fairy lights can turn any space into a magical respite. Try to find battery-operated lights to avoid being overwhelmed by extension cords.
