Spending on home remodeling has traditionally been popular and profitable. Have you considered updating your own space lately?
If so, you should think outside the box — and home — for your next remodeling project. Patio renovations not only make your place look beautiful but they offer a great return on investment.
Not only that, entertaining outdoors is considered a safe and healthy way to get together with friends and family. If you’re ready to start, check out this guide to amazing patio renovation ideas!
Build on Your Idea
First things first — what do you want your patio to look like? Take a moment to really flesh out a strong idea for your outdoor space.
Do you want to use it for gardening? Would you like a bar and barbecue or outdoor pizza oven for gourmet dinner parties?
Start with the idea of your perfect patio and then go from there.
Next, it’s time to build from the ground up. You have several flooring options to consider in order to make sure your outdoor space is durable, easy to clean, and looks beautiful all year long.
Wood decks have a classic appeal. However, you’ll need to keep up with staining and finishing it and some wood materials are very expensive.
Adding the best coating to existing concrete is a great option. It cures quickly, resist damage from UV light and moisture, and is extremely durable.
Now that you’ve got a solid foundation to build on, what kind of features do you want on your patio? We talked about a few, like a bar or a garden, and each one has their pros and cons.
If you’re building a garden, make sure your plants have enough sunlight and irrigation. You can even stack containers to create tiers of lovely flowers you can enjoy.
If you want a grill and full bar, you’ll need to add electrical hook-ups or have space for propane tanks. Consider covering your bar so that you can still hang out even if the weather is less than ideal.
A fire pit is a fun addition for people that love to enjoy the outdoors even if there’s a little chill in the air. There are plenty of fire pits that are easy to install and will be the perfect conversation piece for evenings outside.
Hot tubs are just as much fun as a fire pit and help create a romantic mood. They can be difficult to clean so keep that in mind if you invest in one.
