Three Patio Design Tips

Outdoor living spaces, such as patios have come a long way.

Outdoor living spaces, such as patios have come a long way. There are many luxury ways to upgrade a patio that homeowners will love. There’s nothing wrong with having a traditional or classic design style, but if you’re a homeowner that wants their patio to stand out, there are plenty of options and considerations to make. Here at Trenton Block, our job is to help you enhance your landscape. We offer pavers, walls, stone veneers, and low voltage lighting. Not sure of how to design your outdoor living space? Keep reading for some patio

design tips.

Separate Your Space

Dividing your outdoor living space into sections keeps it polished and organized. One area could be solely a lounge area. A dining area could also have separation from the rest of the patio as well as the area in which you choose to cook on the grill. A lot of homeowners invest in an outdoor kitchen area so that they can prepare a delicious meal while bonding with their guests. Fire pits and fireplaces are also add-ons that homeowners incorporate into their outdoor living spaces.

Focus on Lighting

When hosting an outdoor gathering, lighting is critical. You don’t want a fun event to end because your backyard space isn’t well-lit. Poor lighting is a safety hazard. The ambiance is crucial. Overhead lighting such as string lights is one way to transition from day to night.  Task lighting (such as lanterns), in combination with hanging lights, also adds to the ambiance.

Optimize Small Spaces

 When people retire, they want to minimize their stress. Owning a large house takes a lot of maintenance. Therefore, some older people tend to downsize on their home. Even if your patio is smaller, you can still make the most of it! Make sure to invest in quality furniture because details are easier to pick up on in a smaller space. Quality woodwork is also crucial. What some people with smaller spaces do is incorporate multi-purpose gardens with furniture into their patio as well as adding grills, outdoor kitchens, and fireplaces.
