If you want to enhance your outdoor space or expand the living and entertaining space in your home, a patio or deck is a great way to do it. At Elements Home Remodeling, we offer custom built decks, porches, and patios so you'll never get a cookie cutter solution. So with freedom to choose the kind of patio or deck you'd like, it's time to look to the trends. Here are some of our favorites:
Many decks include steps leading up to them, or a ramp if you've chosen to be more accessible. However, you can create a more cohesive look by using your decking to create a wooden walkway through part of the outdoor space leading up to the deck. There's something calming and peaceful about a smooth walkway surrounded by natural scenery, and it's considerably easier on your shoes during months with more extreme weather.
While there are rugs and mats that are designed for the outdoors, you can also create the appearance of a rug by painting a design into your decking. This is especially smart if you want to add a pop of color to your deck or if you have a seating area or a dining table on your patio or deck. Elements Home Remodeling offers both traditional wood decking or low maintenance engineered options, so your "rug" will likely have the grain pattern of wood, but that can add to the character of it.
Who doesn't love dining al fresco on a nice night? It's always nice to dine on the patio of your favorite restaurant, but you can also get the al fresco treatment at home. Whether it's a small table for two on the patio or a table big enough to entertain on your deck, there's just something that feels fancy about creating an outdoor dining space. This is especially true if you're proud of the landscaping of your outdoor space or even just the layout of your deck. Some will even install a grill or an outdoor kitchen on their deck so they don't have to go back and forth when preparing food.
Elements Home Remodeling is happy to discuss whatever deck or patio trends you have in mind to make your outdoor space feel truly your own. Contact us today for more information or a free estimate.
