Upgrade Your Outdoor Living

October 30, 2019 Outdoor Living, Patio Design

Do you love your home, but your backyard needs a facelift?   There’s a lot you can do no matter the space. Below is an older home… the owners wanted a makeover for their existing patio, so that’s exactly what we did, and now it’s perfect for entertaining. They now have something they are proud to call home.

Let’s take a closer look, below is the before image.

Before

The lack of a patio cover didn’t keep this family from using their backyard, but they were desperate for some shade.

After

This new space gives the family a great area to entertain or to just hang out and enjoy the day with much needed shade and fans. For the cooler months a gas fire pit was added to keep things cozy.

The home had a wall of windows with French doors, so by adding the covered area this helped extend the living room into an indoor-outdoor living style.

The flooring is a herringbone pattern brick floor. It is the perfect accent for this 558 square foot patio cover. We needed to address a drainage issue, so installed a French drain system with black gravel. This not only serves the purpose of the drainage, but helps define the patio space.

We added an outdoor kitchen along the side wall. We had to build out a brick wall to go behind the grill. This kitchen has just enough space for prepping and serving meals and is equipped with plenty of doors and drawers for storage. The vent hood is covered with the same granite as the counter.

The stained beams on the ceiling really pop against the light paint of the tongue and groove. The hardie wrapped columns keep the style of the new space in line with the home. What was once an average patio is now a floor-to-ceiling stunner!
