When space is tight and you’re looking to add value to your dwelling, consider an outdoor patio. Immediately accessible from high-traffic areas like the kitchen and living room, a patio can give the illusion of extended square footage in your home with an unexpectedly fresh change of atmosphere.
Morphing into an outdoor dining room, play area, sunbathing veranda, and party overflow, a patio can do much. Even in frigid temperatures, twinkle lights and a small fire pit enhance the season’s enjoyment.
When it comes to materials and construction, many choices exist. From stone to hardwood and bamboo, you can get the look and feel you want. These photos above show how an outdoor patio can look great and incorporate beautifully into an already-existing home. Ask a contractor how to get started, and take a look at these examples of great patio additions.
