50 Stylish Garden Patio Ideas

Get inspired by these stylish garden patio ideas for 2020

As we finally approach the long, balmy summer months, now is the perfect time to spruce up your patio.

Make your patio garden a space you’ll love to spend time in with these gorgeous patio ideas, whether that’s lazing in a hammock or swing chair, sunbathing on a lounger, planting a vegetable patch (one of 2020’s biggest gardening trends we’ll have you know), or enjoying a glass of rose in the late afternoon sun.

Patios have the benefit of being relatively low-maintenance compared with other garden designs, meaning that it can be enjoyed year-round and not just in the summer. So why not create a patio you’ll enjoy the whole year round? Invest in a warming fire pit or heater lamp, or build a gorgeous brick fireplace or pizza oven. Aside from creating a cosy focal point and an area for enjoying cooler summer evenings, they’ll also allow you to use the patio space during cooler spring and autumn months. With the British weather being notoriously unpredictable, it’s worth creating some covered areas too, for example a traditional awning or canopy.

For style points, layer a patio over different heights to create interest and intrigue. Built-in wall-mounted bench seating will maximise floor space. Add custom-made cushion pads in bright colours and patterns to add instant pizazz.

Tiling the floor or the walls provides another opportunity to introduce colour or funky pattern. To blur the boundaries between indoors and out, continue the same flooring you have inside out onto the patio too.

Soft weather-proof furniture will transform a patio into an outdoor living room. Add an over sized lamp like a classic Anglepoise or the Twiggy design from Christopher Wray for an eye-catching scheme.

Got a small patio? Plant up: invest in a striking living wall, or create a low-maintenance alternative by planting climbing plants or trailing plants. Fast-growing plants like bamboo and grasses in a narrow planter box against the wall can also create a wall of green without taking up too much space.
