3 Great Ideas to Include in Your Patio Renovation
The sun is shining, the days are getting longer, the birds are singing, and your patio isn’t ready for the upcoming warm months. How are you going to host outdoor gatherings when your patio is still stuck in winter?
It’s time for a quick patio renovation. You don’t have to do a complete remodel to make your outdoor space more comfortable. You can make a few small changes that will make an impact.
Read on for our favorite quick patio renovation ideas.
Too many people treat their patios and porches like they’re not even part of their homes. Break free from the mentality that says there needs to be a clear division between your home’s interior and the exterior. The only difference is the walls and the roof!
That’s right, we’re bringing the indoors outdoors in 2022. Do away with the plastic patio furniture and trade it for something just a bit cozier.
Opt for patio furniture that looks like it belongs in your living room. The primary change that you have to make is with the material. Make sure that the furniture is weather-resistant.
Armchairs, chaise lounges, and sectionals can all go outside! Get comfy in your backyard.
An Outdoor Kitchen and Bar
There’s nothing better than being able to gather your friends together in your backyard for a cool and casual gathering. Whether you want to throw a full garden party or you’re just having a drink or two, you can comfortably entertain outside when you have your own outdoor kitchen and bar.
Again, too many people think “small” when they’re planning their patio remodel. Sure, you can add a tiny grill to any patio, but why not think bigger?
If you have the space for it, we recommend installing a cooktop, oven, and food prep area outside. It doesn’t have to be large and extravagant, but it will make a huge difference when it’s time for your next party. You won’t have to run in and out to bring food to your guests.
An outdoor kitchen is also the perfect place for a pizza oven. They’re too hot for indoor use, but outside they’re perfect (and great when you want to stay warm while you wait for your food during the winter).
If you don’t have room for a kitchen, a small outdoor bar is another great choice. You can even DIY it.
A Stylish Fire Pit
A fire pit will bring both style and function to your outdoor space. It’s a great piece of patio furniture that acts as a cool centerpiece and there are so many options to choose from.
Conventional pre-made fire pits are small and portable enough to tuck away when the weather gets bad. They’re great for miniature patios outside of apartments or townhouses.
If you have more space, a stylish ethanol fire table makes a perfect coffee table replacement. You can stay warm and light up the night.
