6 Essentials for a Great Poolside Patio

As a Mansfield pool builder there’s one thing that is just as important as your pool and that’s your patio. Your patio is the perfect place for fresh air and socializing outdoors. But what are the essentials for a great poolside patio? Well we’re going to lay it out for your step by step.

Seating
Every patio needs to have seating suited for the space so consider how many people will typically use the space and what for. Whether it’s an outdoor sofa for a cozy family gathering or bar seating for all the drinks you’ll serve your friends on a hot summer day. Whatever you choose make sure it fits the space.

Table
If you don’t have the space for a full-on outdoor dining area you can easily bring in a coffee table or add a built-in bar height table in to the design.

Lighting
If you want to enjoy your patio throughout the evening you have to have proper lighting. Outdoor lightning can easily be installed as well as mood lighting like string lights and lanterns.

Rugs and Flooring
Use an outdoor rug to soften the space and bring the comfort of indoors to your backyard. You can also add different flooring for separation of spaces.

Greenery
Everyone needs a little greenery. Strategically place taller plants or trees for added shade during the day and some fun florals for added color.

An Element of Fire
Fire pits are perfect for all seasons whether it’s to get cozy by the fire during winter or to grill out during the summer months. Adding one of these to your patio space will make your patio useable all throughout the year.
