How to give your patio a makeover

April 5, 2022 Outdoor Living, Patio Design

Feeling limited by your outdoor space? Even a small patio can have grand appeal with a few simple updates. 

Transform your outdoor design with these small patio makeover ideas that work for any budget.

Comfy seating and couches and statement rug

Add a Statement Rug

If you’re feeling a little shy about daring design choices, try an outdoor rug to make a statement. Bold colors or patterns add an eye-catching anchor to classic patio furniture pieces. 

Fireplace

Bring on the Comfy Seating

Another simple way to add visual interest is with comfy seating. Arrange benches, chairs, or even swinging chairs in a way that makes it easy for guests to engage.

Increase the lounge factor with plush cushions and pillows. Layer different sizes, colors, or patterns for eye-catching, functional appeal. 

Outdoor fireplace and covered patio

Warm it Up

Maximize time spent on your patio with a fire feature. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit adds functional touch and ambiance on cooler nights.

Incorporate a Water Feature

A fountain is another way to add to the outdoor ambiance. Imagine enjoying your favorite book with the calming sound of water.  

Add Some Greenery

Brighten up your backyard with plants or flowers. Choose large plants for a more decorative look. Or try a vertical container with herbs for more practical gardening.

Not only will plants and flowers give your space a vibrant new look, but they can also be a functional touch. For example, some plants like lavender and lemongrass repel bugs and mosquitos.

Use What You Already Have

Save money on your patio update by reimagining the items you already have. For example, repaint an old table for a fresh look, or turn a bookshelf into a bar cart.  

Even small accessories like vases can have a new life in your outdoor living space.

Our Customers Love Us

I totally love our transformed backyard, which faces west and is consequently quite hot in the summer; the table umbrella just didn’t do much. Now we have a better patio, much more sophisticated looking and professionally done to match the existing house so it looks like it was always there. Great job!
