Luxury Upgrades to Your Deck or Patio

Some say the deck or patio is just an extension of the house, so why not splurge a little bit and add some accessories? Some of these luxury items might not be absolute necessities, but they’ll certainly enhance the time you spend on the deck or patio.

Fire Pits. Nothing better than spending an evening on the deck or patio, next to a warm and toasty fire. There’s just something about a campfire that soothes us all. This item isn’t exactly the real deal but it’s a very safe alternative. The fire pit uses propane to ignite a simulated campfire, all at the press of a button.

Outdoor Kitchen. Okay, this makes good sense. You’ve got the barbeque in full swing but you keep making that trek back into the house because you forgot something from the kitchen. Meanwhile, the burgers are burning because you’re not watching the grill. This way you can prepare the meal, entertain guests, and tend to the barbeque all at once.

Portable Hammock. You can look for several different styles and brands that would work. Make sure it’s got a steel frame and easy assembly. You may also want to look for a 9 -10 ft. sun umbrella to keep you in the shade.

Outdoor Patio Heater. Put an extension on summer with an outdoor patio heater. Most models run on propane and will crank out 40,000 BTU’s per hour. Great item to have as summer turns into fall, these mobile heaters take the chill off a cool autumn night.

Patio Misting System. Perfect for those blazing hot days in summer. The system is perfect for pool side patios or around the outdoor bar. These misting systems can cool down the ambient air temperature to as low as 30 degrees—great for a hot summer day.

Gazebo. This could be the main attraction beyond the patio or deck. With the right landscaping as a backdrop, the gazebo can integrate into a rose garden or serve as the central focus of the backyard.
