Here we have a very tropical patio, and I bet it is the perfect place to sit and drink a cold drink on those hot, summer days. Now, in order to make these smaller patios work, there are some things you need to have in order. First, make sure you have the right furniture that is optimal for the space. This table and chairs are an example of well picked furniture that is right for the space. Next, make sure there is a good surrounding of foliage in order to make the space feel cool and private. These elements will help you have a successful patio like this one.
