I Finally I have my hands on a Patio renovation project! This is for the remodel of a 1280 square foot 3 bedroom 2 bath Condo with a small patio, in desperate need of a head to toe makeover. As I am embarking on this new journey, looking for inspiration for this small space has brought me to some interesting finds that I will share with you.
My Absolute favorite Idea, the one that I will be implementing in my new renovation, I will save until last, as I am sure everyone will also fall in love with this too.
But I wanted to start with Easy friend divider walls.
Taking Privacy Screens to the Next Level
Coming up with creative ways to stay within your decor but still have your privacy up, can be challenging. But incorporating old shutters or Screens Arranged in an arch or privacy wall is a very inexpensive and super stylish way to have a private heaven all to yourself. You have Simple Privacy screens that you can use in any apartment setting. Or you can use those to get super creative. I love the use of Old refurbished Windows and doors to make a privacy fence with. But, If you don't do this right, it can look like a junk yard instead.
But done correctly can be a outdoor she-shed getaway! Without the shed of course LOL You could easily do this next to one or even next to a small greenhouse.
Natural Looking Privacy Fences
This Design would be super easy to pull off on Any Small Balcony. It is basically Rustic Stained Wooden Pallets that form the natural bench backdrop. Add in two outdoor benches and a coordinating dining table and your all set. Then all You need is some good outdoor lighting that you can either plug in and hang or something cute and solar powered.
Let's Nature Take it's Course
Want Privacy, but still want to be cozy with Nature? Then lets talk about Plants! Weather your a green thumb or not you can incorporate nature into your private patio. You can Built Your Pallet Board Privacy Fence, then you can either hang pots from Hanging Plant Bars or Coordinate your pots and hang them like shown in the photo above, with pot inserts.
Bushes and Trellises
One of my favorite ways to decorate anything is with plants, so of course I would always lean on nature for privacy. You can either plant an entire row of trees and have a really natural privacy wall, Push some Wooden Trellis into the ground and vine them up, or.... You can Buy a Trellis Planter Wall and piece them together until you have formed the perfect space.
Now to My Absolute Favorite!!!
The Succulent Privacy Wall
Do I need to say more???? LOL Well since this is my article, I guess I must. But All I will say is how you can pull this off. OK, so there are several ways to pull off an artistic backdrop / privacy wall in any small space. You can do like I did and Buy 2-3 Succulent Pocket Walls and a tension rod and hang them from that as well as the weighted Outdoor privacy curtain I have behind that. All together it is a perfect way to have a private sanctuary and still have it eye appealing from the outside.
The alternative is using the trellis and attaching them to all the railings, then draping the succulent wall pockets on the front and back of the trellis, so that it is eye appealing from both sides. There are many other ways you can pull this off, it all depends on what you are working with. So, if you need any advice, please drop a comment below with some photos and I will do my very best to give you some good ideas.
I hope you have been inspired for your patio privacy journey. If you are going to use any of my ideas, please let me see the before and after photos, as I live for this stuff, LOL
