Build your Perfect Patio
We are in the midst of the long-awaited Spring in Malta. Perfectly balanced between the frigid winter and sweltering summer months ahead, this warm weather serves as an ideal occasion to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends on the patio.
Interior design extends beyond the walls of your home. Your outdoor patio space is another way to showcase your personal style. Below are some of Fino’s tips on how to build your perfect outdoor patio set.
1. The first step is to decide on the materials for your outdoor furniture set. The climate should be a major factor as the weather conditions will have an effect on your furniture. Throughout the warmer months, Malta can experience up to 12 hours of sunlight per day. Is your patio furniture sunlight-resistant? Teak, aluminium, and wood are some popular patio furniture materials. Fino’s sales and designs consultants can offer you advice on the benefits and maintenance of different materials before you make a final decision.

2. Don’t fill your outdoor space to the brim. It can be tempting to purchase a full outdoor set with the sofa, armchairs, patio table, and all the matching complements. However, take into consideration the amount of outdoor space you have and if it accommodates all these features. Remember that to properly serve, you and your guests will need space to walk around, dance, eat, etc.

3. Be bold with your colour scheme. The beauty of Malta’s Mediterranean climate is that you can use your outdoor furniture collection for most of the year. You can use this opportunity to experiment with colour and different fabrics to customize your home in a more daring way.

4. Don’t be afraid to mix and match. Choosing a coordinating furniture set will be the easiest option for a cohesive look. However, combining different items and fabrics will be more suitable if you enjoy an eclectic look. Just think of it as recreating your interior design technique, outdoors.
Creating your perfect patio does not have to be limited to a table and a few lawn chairs. Furnishing your outdoor space is a great opportunity to expand on your décor inside or create something new entirely.
