Custom Patio Upgrades
If you love to entertain or spend time outdoors, chances are that great patio design might be a priority for you. In fact, patios are among the top three features requested by new homebuyers, and it’s no wonder they’re so popular. Custom patio installation can allow you to get more out of your space and put your own stamp on it. That said, a great patio doesn’t always come cheap. It’s possible to spend a good portion of your budget working with patio designers, and while a lot of homeowners feel this investment is well worth it, it may be out of the financial scope for others. But the reality is that creating an amazing patio doesn’t have to break the bank.
Four ways to upgrade your patio space.
- Add some lights: It may not require assistance from your patio installers, but you can spruce up your existing patio space by adding some welcoming lights. Hanging lamps and twinkle lights can completely change the ambiance of your yard in a snap. Alternatively, you can have more permanent fixtures installed, which can help keep guests safe while creating a tranquil atmosphere. Consider using eco-friendly options like LED lighting, as they’ll help reduce your environmental impact and your monthly electricity bill.
- Put in pavers: If you have a relatively small patio and want to extend the space a bit or want to create a patio space from scratch, you can install brick, stone, or travertine pavers to tie everything together on your property. Because this type of custom patio installation is relatively straightforward and fairly easy to maintain, it’s an excellent way to upgrade your yard without going economically overboard. You will, however, need to plan ahead for drainage, so be sure to work with an experienced company to ensure your paver patio is installed correctly.
- Install a floating deck: If you have a ranch-style house or simply don’t have the landscaping available for a traditional deck, a floating deck can be a great alternative to custom patio installation using pavers. While the concept and execution are fairly simple, installing a floating deck will define your backyard space beautifully and provide an aesthetically pleasing option that will help you entertain with ease. You can also switch things up by incorporating plant life into the deck itself.
- Rethink your seating: For those who already have a patio space but want to make it a bit more (multi-)functional, you can upgrade this area by rethinking your seating options. Instead of traditional patio chairs, opt for a lounge seat that can double as a daybed. Add different types of seats or stools that also contain storage for an added bonus. The trick to getting the most out of a small patio space is to pull double duty whenever you can. This will help you get the most out of your budget and allow you to enjoy your time outside even more.
