Summer is all about dining al fresco. And there is nothing more I love than hosting friends for a casual and laid back summer meal. But with only a small, seven feet by eleven feet inner city balcony, creating an inspiring place to host my dearest required some creativity. Today I’m sharing the tricks I used to create an enchanted inner city outdoor entertaining space for anyone with a small, perhaps uninspired patio or balcony.
I’m not sure why, but summer always sneaks up on me! Despite the endless yearning, I find I’m scrambling every year to get my outdoor space ready. And truthfully, it’s usually days (or moments) before entertaining outside that my space really comes together! However this year, I have to say, I was very well prepared. We recently got our patio redone so I spent a while looking at flagstones from Westminster Stone. Once I decided which slabs I wanted, I called some local builders and it was done within a couple of days! Unfortunately, I’m not usually this well prepared! So, if like me you’re in a rush to get your space together in time for the July long weekend, I’ve put together three simple, yet distinct looks to help you create the perfect patio. However, instead of rushing like this to prepare your patio, you could always consider contacting a company that can install folding arm awnings in Sydney or somewhere closer to where you live. This will ensure that your patio is ready throughout all weather conditions, meaning that you don’t have to worry about getting it ready every time the sun comes out. Having said this, patios do need maintenance and unfortunately, cracks can start to appear. Don’t worry; this is easily repaired by Action Home Services through their interlock repair service. You’ll have your patio look as good as new!
