It’s that time of year again, where many homeowners are spending more time relaxing on their patios than their living rooms. Now is the perfect opportunity to upgrade an existing patio or upgrade your patio during your build to make it more inviting and attractive. Depending on budget, it can be as simple as spiffing up the patio with a coat of stain, or as elaborate as adding an outdoor kitchen area. Here are a few ideas for those wanting to spice up their patio:
During the building process there are a couple options for you to upgrade your patio. One being enlarging the standard size to a large concrete slab. Another option would be to upgrade to a stamped concrete patio. There are many options for stamped concrete. You get to choose the base color, the top color, and the design you would like. Another great option would be to forego your patio, and add a maintenance free deck. Maintenance free decks come in a variety of colors, and can be made in any size that you would like.
If you are looking at spicing up your existing patio, here are a few options.
Add a stone fireplace to the center of the patio, this is a great focal point and can serve as a great smore station! If you spend a lot of time on your patio, another great option would be to add some sort shade to the area. Whether that be adding an umbrella, or a pergola, the options are endless. One final idea I have for anyone trying to jazz up their existing patio would be to add an outdoor kitchen. If you like to spend a lot of time on the patio, enjoy grilling while sipping on a few cold ones, this would be ideal for you.
These are all some great options whether you are currently building a home or are just looking to update your current patio. Get out there and enjoy patio season. Cheers!
