Exquisite Patios Are Possible for Everyone

Ahhhh, the chaise lounge in all it's splendor and glory. What a great back yard. I'm so jealous!

The blue cushions echo the blue lake in the most perfect manner. How peaceful retreat is this?

Even if you don't have a scene as lovely as this to work in, look around for what you have to work with. You may surprise yourself. Perhaps you've already got outdoor furniture and all it needs is some tender loving care.

Time to fix or replace. Start looking now for how you want to change your back yard patio. Perhaps all you need is to recover something, paint it or remove the rust. Spring and summer will be here before you know it.

Look at the unity you can achieve by repetition, here working in the odd number of threes. Not only is the area unified, but you've created rhythm in your decorating. This is what the professionals do all the time.  What's great about this type of chaise is that the cushions come separately and you can choose any color you like. They can be plain and simple like these or you can go for prints or plaids for a more lively look.

If you're a home stager and you have a home with a backyard pool, place the chaise lounge chairs in a row all facing the same direction. Here a great place for an extra large tray, with some glasses of lemonade and a pitcher carefully placed by the side of the pool. It suggests to home buyers that this backyard will be perfect for family gatherings or for parties and help them visualize living in the space and enjoying every minute of their time in the back yard.
