After a long season of spring cleaning, summer is the perfect time to have some fun by redecorating your home. Many people overlook decorating their outdoor space, but it’s actually a great way to add more livable space to your home. And with the latest 2024 patio trends, you can create your own outdoor oasis for you and your guests to enjoy.

Even better, you don’t have to have a huge space to do it. Whether you have a big backyard or a small balcony, you can enjoy a trendy outdoor space to have some summer fun.

To learn what’s hot this summer, here are six 2024 patio trends to elevate your space this season.

Ambient Lighting

Even something as simple as having the right lighting can completely transform your outdoor area. And this year, ambient lighting is where it’s at. Think oversized fabric lanterns, fairy lights, or even a chic chandelier to create a magical glow for your covered patio.

Or for a more environmentally friendly option, solar-powered lighting like solar deck lights or solar lanterns can be the perfect low-maintenance solution.

Self-Care Features

Self-care isn’t just a buzzword on social media, it’s a whole lifestyle, and your space should definitely represent that.

If you want a patio that promotes inner calm, a luxury spa is a good place to take inspiration from. Comfy seating like a lounge chair, a bubbling water fountain, fragrant plants, and maybe a small fire pit can all enhance relaxation, so keep an eye out for these calming features when shopping for your outdoor space.

Moon Gardens

Moon gardens are popular on social media, and for good reason. They create a whimsical, enchanted effect on your outdoor space, making it perfect for reading a book, enjoying a movie, or taking a dip in the pool under the stars.

To create your own enchanted garden, you’ll need to plant white, silver, or pale blue flora that reflect the moonlight. This is what gives your garden that magical, other-worldly feel. And if you want to go all out, you can sprinkle in some twinkling fairy lights to really set the mood.

Outdoor Entertainment Features

Outdoor entertaining happens every summer, but 2024 is taking things to new heights. Alfresco kitchens are a pretty big deal right now. And you can’t have a meal without someplace to eat, so expect an emphasis on outdoor dining spaces as well.

Beyond dining, a cozy fire pit is definitely a popular fixture for hosting movie nights or conversing by the fire. And a water fountain can be the perfect backdrop for socializing or otherwise just enjoying some peace and quiet.

Diverse Patterns

When it comes to interior design, simplicity is always in style. But this year, diverse patterns are making waves all summer long. Summer 2024 is about making a statement with bold patterns, from waves to florals to geometric designs. Think decor like outdoor rugs, planters, throw pillows and blankets, or even patio furniture cushions.

And don’t hesitate to get creative when you decorate. Try mixing and matching one pattern with another to give your space that fun and playful vibe that’s perfect for summer.

Sustainable Options

Speaking of environmentally-friendly, sustainability continues to be a major trend. And because more people are considering their environmental impact, companies are making it easier than ever for customers to find eco-friendly elements to incorporate into their decor.

You can make sustainability a priority in several ways like shopping for furniture made from recycled materials, installing solar lighting, or decorating with drought-resistant plants. And the great thing about it is that not only does sustainable decor help the planet, it adds a cool, earthy vibe to your space, too.
