Patio Décor Ideas to Create a Relaxing Outdoor Space

Patios are an ideal outdoor asset on Boise ID homes. They provide a place to get fresh air and sunshine while relaxing with a cup of coffee, sipping a glass of wine with friends or reading a good book.

To get the most enjoyment from your patio, incorporate these elements to make it your favorite “room” of the house.

Comfortable Seating

Your choice of patio seating is almost unlimited. Deeply cushioned outdoor sofas are great for casual lounging with a modern vibe, while wooden benches and Adirondack chairs create a more rustic look. Or go vintage with antique wicker or retro-style metal chairs. Whatever you choose, you can lighten the mood with colorful cushions and bright paint, or make it serene by keeping everything neutral.

Dining Options

Try a small patio set if space is limited. For larger patios you might want to purchase a picnic table or add a side table beside each chair.

Privacy and Shade

Screen your patio with tall plants, a trellis or bamboo rollup blinds. A bubbling fountain can help muffle sounds. If your patio is open, you can create shade with a large umbrella or awning.


Evenings on the patio are more pleasant with the right lighting. Try a stylish pendant, sconces, string lights or battery-powered lanterns.


Nothing says outdoors like the presence of birds or butterflies. Plant flowers to attract butterflies. Bird lovers can install a birdbath, birdfeeder or hummingbird feeder for their feathered friends.

At Brighton Homes we love our outdoor spaces! We’ve designed a variety of floor plans with patios so you can enjoy your home even more.

The Charleton floor plan is perfect for growing families. At 2,320 square feet, this home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It offers single level living with an optional second floor bonus space. A covered patio just off the dining area is the perfect place to enjoy summer meals or relax while the kids play in the back yard.

For those who need more space, our Bandon floor plan is a large two-story home of 3,015 square feet. It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The patio has a covered area as well as a rounded extension where you can enjoy the sun and grow potted plants.
