As I’m fantasizing what my own backyard space will be in the next few years, I’ve put together some of the best uses for backyard porches and patios in the summer. There are so many good ideas for how to get the most use out of your backyard space. Turn your porch or patio into a usable and inviting space this summer with a few of these ideas!
This is such a fun space from Jenna Sue Design. So many conversation spaces. See it in detail here.
I love everything about this comfy backyard patio space from Southern Cottage. It’s perfect for summer!
I love porch swings! What a cozy, yet elegant space to spend an evening.
If you’re feeling ambitious and want to turn that backyard space into something more for the kids, this is an awesome space to enjoy movies in the summer.
How about a space that is full of color and florals? This is a perfect area for hanging out.
A patio doesn’t have to be busy with grand designs to enjoy it. I love the simplicity of the woodwork and touch of greenery to this lovely back deck space.
I love the use of wood on this back patio. It’s so helpful to have an eye-catching design that also provides privacy!
Bright and inviting and a setting like this one in the perfect outdoors is just how I imagine my summer to be. Source here.
This is a fun Boho space and I love the use of a chair swing for more seating, instead of typical lounge chairs.
If you don’t have a physical porch or are working with a small space, you can still create a gorgeous outdoor space like this one on a cement patio.
I love this space. So inviting
Even small porch spaces can be designed for seating and functionality. This was our last backyard patio that I transformed. See it here.
Backyard patios with fire pits like this one are becoming ever popular! It looks so inviting.
