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.
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.
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.
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.
