Decorating for Fall, Y’all!

October 1, 2020 Outdoor Celebrations, Patio Design

Fall days are the glory days where you enjoy a warm beverage, sit back, relax and enjoy the view. The temperatures are dropping… people are getting in the autumn spirit, but in Texas the leaves don’t change colors until a little later, so creating the “change in season” illusion is up to us… with decor!

Whether your outdoor space is small or big, decorating for the new season can help you get in the mood. Just a few small touches here and there can help transform your space from spring and summer to all about fall. It doesn’t have to be all orange either… mimicking fall foliage can be done by using mustard colored decor, burgundy, cream, olive, taupe and tan.

10 Easy Essentials for Outdoor Fall Decorating

  1. Colorful Mums (they come in a variety of colors and sizes)
  2. Dried corn or cornstalks
  3. Layer with hay
  4. Spiced scented candles
  5. Cozy throw blanket and outdoor pillows
  6. Burlap to weave throughout decor
  7. Natural colored rug
  8. Baskets with flannel material draped
  9. Pinecones
  10. Pumpkins (saved the best for last)

Getting creative can be easy, just create little nooks within your patio with some of the essential items listed above. Remember, less is always more!

The Outdoor Living Wish List

August 29, 2020 Outdoor Living, Promotion

Texas Custom Patios is currently featured in Hearth & Home magazine, we are among several gorgeous projects built across the country. So many different styles and prices, but we have one thing in common… the appreciation for design and a quality build.

When consumers were asked for their outdoor living feature wish list, these were the top contenders:

  • Fire Pits/fireplaces
  • Built-in gas grills
  • Patio heaters
  • Pizza ovens
  • Beverage centers
  • BBQ islands

So as you can see with four of the six items, outdoor kitchens continue to be a hot item! No matter the space you have, creating an outdoor oasis is doable and can increase the value of your home substantially. The foreseeable future forecasts “staycations” as a hot commodity, so the time is now to improve your home!

Our experienced personal project developers will work one-on-one with you to create a custom-designed outdoor kitchen that blends seamlessly with your home’s exterior.

You can choose stone, brick, or stucco finishes; and granite, tile, or concrete counters; but we’ll always use a high-quality framework underneath. We build all outdoor kitchens with tubular steel framing and fiber-cement sheathing to give you a durable, non-expansive, and heat-proof foundation.

For a look at some of our beautiful outdoor kitchens, click here.

Two of our projects were featured in Hearth & Home, both beautiful but very different! The first one beams with wow factor!

The second featured project in the magazine is cozy, quaint, but still says, “wow!” This project is 450 square feet of beautiful outdoor living space in Houston, Texas.

Have a project in mind? We work throughout the Houston and Dallas - Fort Worth areas.
