5 Must-Have Statement Pieces for your Patio

Having an outdoor patio at your house is a luxury. If you’re lucky enough to have a deck in your backyard, then you should take the time to make it nice so you can enjoy it. If you’re careful about finding décor that compliments the space, then it can also be a great place to entertain guests and soak up the sun.

Often times, homeowners will focus on updating the inside of their home and forget to give any attention to the outside. Giving your patio some love will boost the resale value of your home and, in the meantime, create an extra spot for you and your family to unwind. See five must-have statement pieces for your patio that will help you kick back and relax in style.

Tiered Solar Water Fountain

Purchasing a water fountain is a small addition that can make a big difference. This solar powered two-tiered foundation with LED lights is just one example of how a water feature can add instant luxury to your yard or garden. The best part is that this particular fountain can also run on battery power when set to the on position!

Water features are great for creating a peaceful and soothing environment. They can make you feel like you’re on vacation in your own backyard. Take a look at this wishing well for your garden or patio. With this piece, you can hear the sound of water without having to go to the beach. An electric pump allows water to recirculate through the fountain itself, making it self-contained. Amazing!

Wall Water Fountains

If you’re tight on space or don’t like the look of a larger waterfall, then think about adding a wall water fountain instead. They are the perfect touch of elegance and beauty. By installing a wall water fountain, you’ll still get the sound of falling water, but it doesn’t take up as much real estate as the fountain.

This particular wall water fountain is made of Polystone. This material feels like porcelain to the touch, and has an incredible ability to capture the minutest detail, as you can see. The wrought iron border is simply stunning. Wall water fountains easily mount against any surface using a sturdy hook, screw, or nail, so they’re a great DIY project too!
