Sweet Escapes – Rooftop Patios

With summertime right around the corner, nothing screams “best time of the year” like kicking back and relaxing.

Don’t have time to get away? Sometimes an escape can be as easy as walking upstairs. Rooftop patios don’t have to be for the rich and famous. Create your own little getaway with one-of-a-kind views by making the most of these 3 components.

1. Seating

These little oases are famous for being social spaces. Seating, therefore, is a must. Whether you have multiple sectionals, lounge chairs, or oversized pillows, make sure there are enough spots for everyone to sit. This is a place to gather with friends so make sure you arrange your chairs and stools in a way that create a more intimate environment.

2. Fire pit

Heat may rise, but so does that summer breeze. Since you are enjoying the view from the top, make sure you stay nice and warm at night with a fire pit. Fire pit design is something you can play around with. There are so many different shapes, sizes, textures and colors to explore. Let your creativity go wild!

3. Grill

Everybody’s got to eat, right? And no one wants to hike up and down the stairs for food so adding a grill can be an essential part of making your patio complete. Fire up that grill and get cooking!
