Exterior Design – DIY Small Patio Makeover On A Budget
Need an outdoor place to dine, but lack the space? Get design ideas from H&H's Lauren Petroff and learn how she updated her small city patio on a budget with inexpensive materials, DIY projects, and affordable finds.
Now that it's officially summer, Lauren felt it was time to inject a little bit of personality and function into her characterless patio. A dark blue lattice panel, divider, and cover for the air conditioning unit adds architectural interest to space.
The elongated bench, built by Lauren, acts as a lounging spot and as storage, but can also be used for extra seating
at the dining table. The glass top, black frame dining set adds a sleek and contemporary vibe to the overall look of the patio. The backdrop of cedars is a great, low maintenance option for greenery.
