Patios for a Ranch-Style Home

April 22, 2022 Patio Design

Most people choose a ranch-style home for it’s accessibility and focus on indoor/outdoor living. Adding a patio or redesigning the current patio on your ranch-style home can extend your living space and complement the current elements of your home style.

Ranch-style homes are known for single-story, open floor plans. Other common design aspects such as large windows and glass doors help incorporate natural elements into these spaces. Choosing the right patio design can assist with the seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living.

Here are some design features that can transform your patio into an extension of your current living space.

Ranch style patio cover

A well designed cover

A well designed patio cover should look original to your home. Choosing the right contractor can ensure that the job is professionally done and seamless. 

You can also add interest underneath on the ceiling by using a material, color or pattern that complements your outdoor style.

A kitchen/dining area

Enjoying a meal outside is part of the communal outdoor experience. A strategically placed kitchen or grill allows the host to engage and be a part of the action while preparing meals. 

Fireplace and seating area

Living space with a focal point

An outdoor living space with a focal point gives guests a gathering point for conversation. Elements such as a fireplace with a mounted tv or a fire pit help keep people entertained and engaged. 

Ranch style tile flooring

Upgraded flooring

Some people opt for a standard brushed concrete. But other outdoor flooring options such as pavers can add a touch of elegance to your patio design. 

Upgraded flooring not in your budget? An outdoor rug can make your space feel more like home.

Choosing the right element for a ranch-style home patio provides an outdoor/indoor flow that’s ideal for entertaining and engaging with guests.

Our Customers Love Us

I have a lot of experience with construction and renovations, so some contractors find me annoying at best. My outdoor living project was larger than I was able to take on as it entailed adding an outdoor living area, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with a fireplace and fire pit. It’s built onto an existing structure with a tile roof in a seamless manner. The completed project is amazing, and was featured in the Houzz project of the month for December 2013. It was a very large project so it took a long time to complete, however the process was absolutely painless. In my previous experiences, I have always had issues with miscommunications and added costs, among other things. My experience with Texas Custom Patios included NONE of these issues. The finished project far exceeded my expectations. The workmanship was superior, and the quality of the products is top of the line. I truly highly recommend them.
