A great way to get the most out of a backyard is often accomplished by building or renovating both a patio and a deck. Patio and deck combinations allow you to fully maximize their use of your outdoor living space. But seamlessly combining these two outdoor living spaces can sometimes be challenging. If you want to spice up your backyard with a deck and patio combination, here are a few ways you can do it.
Wood Decking with Stone
Do you love the look of a wooden deck? Compliment it by incorporating stone! It’s hard to beat the classic look of a wooden deck complimented by a stone patio. The wood will give your deck a timeless look, while the modern, stone patio will tie everything together to give a put-together look.
Another great option to consider is vinyl decking. Some advantages of using vinyl decking include:
- A variety of customization options
- Require less maintenance than wood decking
- Doesn’t warp, fade, buckle, or splinter
- Lasts a long time
When you use vinyl for your patio or deck, you create a durable and good-looking combination. Since vinyl comes in a variety of colors and designs, you have the ability to create a one-of-a-kind combination. Your patio can be constructed with vinyl decking of one color and your deck with another color. Or, you can use the same vinyl style for both the deck and patio. The choice is yours!
Metal Decking with Brick
Metal decking and brick are other great options for a deck and patio combination. Metal decking is less common, but it still comes with plenty of benefits. Metal decking weighs less, is extremely durable, easy to install, and affordable. Paired with timeless brick, your deck and patio combination will be the envy of the neighborhood.
Composite is a modern material option that you can use for both your deck and patio. Composite has become a popular choice recently due to its low maintenance cost, moisture resistance, fade resistance, and a plethora of other advantages. Composite decking can give you the look of wood decking without the high maintenance or price tag.
