With snow and other winter weather behind us, you may have spent some time in your home’s outdoor space. Maybe you’ve imagined what entertaining at your home will be like this summer. Barbeques, cookouts, and more are enhanced with a well-designed patio space. Your outdoor space should be one of your favorite spaces in your home. No matter the size of your space, with some attention, your patio can become that.
Create a Larger Patio Area
Bigger is typically better when it comes to a patio. So if you’ve got the space to expand your existing patio or build a new, larger one, it’s an easy choice. Patios offer great flexibility in terms of the material that you use; there is an option to fit any yard’s aesthetic. Our team at Bruno Guerriero Construction specializes in brick patios because we are expert masons. Brick can be fit into any space, making a great option for New England homeowners. Once you’ve got your surface and space figured out, it’s time to move onto furnishing the patio. Benches and lawn chairs are often used, but depending on your extent of entertaining, more of a dining set might make sense.
Bring the Indoors Outside
If you are interested in having outdoor dinner parties and frequent barbeques, you will want to invest in a table and some chairs for your patio. Grilling is made that much better when you can enjoy the food outside as well. If space allows on your patio, you can even opt for a fire pit or outdoor fireplace, which will help keep you comfy as summer days extend into the night. Of course, a grill is a no-brainer for any patio, but some folks go a step further with an outdoor kitchen, which can prevent you from having to run in and out of the house all day.
Add the Finishing Touches
Once you’ve got the furniture and design of your patio mostly finished, it’s time to move on to the last few things to make it special. You’ll need to add some lighting when the sun goes down, string lighting and solar-powered lights are common for outdoor spaces for their low energy use. Make sure that any area where guests are walking are well-lit! Look into some Bluetooth speakers as well, there are so many options out there, and most will do just fine for a patio. Finally, you’ll want to include some kind of yard games or other games to play with family and friends. We hope you have an excellent Summer full of memories with the ones you love.
