Fire Pits

Fire pits fit well with contemporary-style outdoor patios because of their functionality and design versatility. During cooler nights, fire pits provide warmth and entice good times on your outdoor patio with family and guests of all ages.

The ability to customize the design of your fire pit makes for a contemporary aspect to your outdoor patio. If your patio is built with stone pavers, you can use the same stone medium for your fire pit. Or you can build it with bricks to match a brick patio.

The possibilities are endless, but the result will surely be a classy, sophisticated area on your outdoor patio. Just be sure to provide enough seating around the pit because good spots will be in demand.

Sofas and Coffee Tables

Contemporary outdoor patios lean more toward a simplistic design that provides ample opportunity for conversation between you and your guests. With two sofas facing each other and a coffee table in between, you have the perfect environment to relax and enjoy your company.

If you decide to put a roof or cover over your outdoor patio, you can upgrade to comfortable sofas that will be sheltered from the natural elements.

The sleek design of outdoor sofas will intrigue your guests and create a pleasing outdoor patio configuration that can be enjoyed to the fullest.

Decorative Additions

There are a number of minor additions that you can make to turn your existing outdoor patio into one that’s more contemporary and modernly designed. Simply including throw pillows, rugs, and umbrellas can add personality to your outdoor living space. Side tables, arm chairs, and sectionals are modern additions that transform your outdoor patio into more of a living room that you’ll love utilizing. String lights and candles are fantastic mood setters, and a plant or two helps to diversify the space.

When it comes to designing a contemporary outdoor patio, think of engaging and sleek additions that add style and functionality. Model your outdoor patio after a living room to determine how you should design your seating and think of fun, interactive additions that match with the overall style of your outdoor patio and provide extra ways you and your family can utilize the outdoor space.
