Are you looking at ideas to enhance the comfort and style of your modern home with a zone to enjoy sunsets and fresh air? Or perhaps a braai area for those amazing evening events with loved ones. This homify feature is all about patios, and our professionals included 13 brilliant ideas from our favourite South African inspirations to suit your home! So whether your style is authentically rustic or sleek and modern, consider a gorgeous patio revamp and soak up the sun.

1. Seating made simple

By building a weatherproof seating area outside, you'll never have to rush home to bring in those pillows when the weather starts looking dull and dreary.

2. Fireplace

While outdoor heating does work quite well to warm up the patio, there's nothing like a campfire style fireplace to get the scary stories flowing.

3. Glammed and gorgeous

This patio area has comfortable seating, a fireplace and a sophisticated home just a few metres away, you'll never entertain the same way again.

4. Nothing left out

An outdoor dining area is perfect for those Al Fresco evenings.

5. With a view

A rooftop patio is essential for your penthouse apartment or even just for a home with a view.

6. Dusky delight

The neutral colour scheme and romantic illumination creates the perfect setting for a quiet evening with loved ones.

7. Landscape and location

A grand garden doesn't need to be just that. Include a sensational seating area for outdoor dining and enjoy sundowners in the comfort of your home.

8. Petite space

A small backyard is no excuse for a non-existent patio, it can instead be a cosy comfort.

Opt for more dining space and your home will be functional and fantastic for the whole family.

10. On the deck

A wooden deck will protect your grass from erosion.

There's nothing more Zen than a view of the ocean, but in true Cape Town style, the soothing sight of the Atlantic is never far away either. What do you think about that ultra-sophisticated built-in braai?

13. With a pergola

A pergola can be a welcome change to a boring patio. Choose a darker hue to blend in with the furniture for a fantastic and appealing design. Have a look at these 31 beautiful verandas to fit any space
