Features for your New Patio

June 23, 2017

Tags: , , , ,

Installing a new patio is a great way to upgrade your outdoor living space and provide additional space for relaxation and entertainment. Let’s take a look at some of the most common patio features and why you should consider them for your new outdoor project!

Built-In Seating

Installing built-in seating on your patio is a beneficial addition that promotes relaxation and optimizes your outdoor living space. These seating areas can be used for relaxation or for additional seating in your outdoor kitchen. Building seating into the patio lets you save on patio furniture and can promote a more open floor-plan.

Fire Pit

Who doesn’t love warming up by a fire and roasting marshmallows on a cool Fall night? Fire pits are enjoyable for adults and children alike, and can provide a cozy atmosphere for your new patio. You can build one into the patio itself, or buy a pre-built pit that can be moved to different areas of your backyard.


Retaining or privacy walls and fences are useful for separating your patio from the rest of your backyard and creating a more private living area. Paint the walls or fences to match the color scheme of your patio and add decorative wall hangings or vertical planter boxes to add character to the space.

Hot Tub

Don’t let winter temperatures keep you from appreciating your patio! Hot tubs provide a spa-like atmosphere for your outdoor living space and allow you to utilize your patio outside of warmer months. These are best for covered patios in yards that have taller fences for privacy.

Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen is an optimal patio addition for the home chef. It can be as simple as a grill for barbecuing, or unique with equipment such as a brick oven or electric smoker. Entertain your guests during warmer months by preparing and serving meals outdoors!

Wet Bar

No outdoor kitchen is complete without a wet bar! You can customize yours to include a sink for easy water access, cabinets for kitchen utensil storage, counter space for food preparation, stools for extra seating, a mini-fridge for storing beverages and food items, and much more!
