10 Patio Upgrades for a Spectacular Property This Summer

Patio Upgrades

If you’re embarrassed to be seen on your dingy patio, you’re not alone.

Unlike the carpet in your living room or the paint on your walls, patios are often a neglected extension of the home. A common misconception is that it costs a pretty penny to update it. But that’s simply not true. The key is making smart, low-cost improvements to create a space you’re proud to entertain in.

Have you fallen out of love with your patio? It’s OK. It happens to the best of us.

Even though the patio is an extension of the home, it’s usually not treated to the same upgrades and improvements as the interior. The result is a drab, neglected outdoor space that’s rarely used. But by making a few low-cost improvements, you can create an inviting outdoor area that’s perfect for entertaining. Here are 10 easy improvements you can make that will turn your vanilla veranda into an outdoor oasis of comfort and style:

  1. Surfaces: Updating the surface of your patio is a trendy way to redesign your outdoor space. Using multiple surfaces like pavers, stones, and decomposed granite allows you to define different areas for different activities: somewhere to cook, somewhere to play, and somewhere to sit. And it doesn’t have to be expensive! Try layering outdoor rugs for an instant spruce that adds an inviting splash of color and texture.
  2. Lighting: Treat your patio to some special outdoor lighting like a spotlight for a theatrical effect or colored lanterns for a warm Bohemian feel. This upgrade has the added value of increasing visibility and making your patio safer.

In this article, 10 patio upgrades are revealed that will enhance your property and provide you with a new outdoor retreat.
