Home is about your senses. When all of your senses are happy, you’re happy. Our sense of hearing is one that we sometimes forget. Wind chimes on your patio are one way to make your ears happy.
I love summer, but summer comes with some crappy noises. Like weed-whackers. And megaphone volume karaoke from your neighbor’s garage.
Oh, is that just my neighbor?
Well, the wind chimes might not completely block that noise out, but they will give my ears something else to focus on that is a little more calm.
Plus, you’ll see in this list of my favorite wind chimes, they are quite pretty, too!
13 Wind Chimes for Your Patio for a More Zen Summer
I first realized that I loved wind chimes one day when I was walking my dog and heard the sound of some from someone’s yard. It wasn’t the light tinkle noise of some wind chimes. It was a more melodic and deep sound.
I love that sound.
The tinkling is nice, too, just different. The particular type of sound your wind chimes make will depend on the material they are made from and the width and length of the tubes if they are tubular wind chimes.
