5 Ways to Build the Patio of Your Dreams

June 7, 2022

The weather outside is beautiful, the company is great, and the setting is peaceful. A leisurely afternoon on your patio is time well spent. Your patio is a place you can unwind from a stressful day, take in the sunrise, host a fun party, or share dinner with your family. With so many great ways to use your outdoor space, why not transform your patio into exactly what you want? At SummerSpace®, we have been in the outdoor living business for 40 years. In that time, we’ve seen a lot of amazing patios and backyard spaces. Let us share five ways to build the patio of your dreams.

Add a Fire Feature To Your Backyard 

An outdoor fireplace or fire pit not only adds warmth but also creates a gathering place and beautiful ambiance. Children and adults alike enjoy gathering around the fire to share great conversation and maybe even yummy s’mores. A fire feature is also cozy entertainment when hosting friends or a romantic date spot. A fire pit or outdoor fireplace can be as elaborate or simple as you’d like. If you’d rather not build a fire and clean up after it, consider an electric or gas outdoor fireplace. 

Hang Fun Lighting Along Your Patio

Beautiful backyard lighting is a true showstopper! It’s also an instant way to add charm and comfort to your dream backyard. String lights are one of the most popular ways to add backyard lighting and come in a variety of design options. They can be hung along your patio  and throughout your backyard. Another fun lighting option is backyard lanterns.  Backyard lighting is beautiful but also serves a practical purpose. Additional lighting allows the patio enjoyment to continue even after sunset. 

Install an Outdoor Entertainment Center For More Patio Fun

Do you love being outside on your patio? Do you also love catching the big game on TV? Well, with an outdoor entertainment center you can do both at the same time! An outdoor entertainment center can include an outdoor TV for watching live TV or catching up on your favorite shows. Or, add an outdoor sound system for listening to your favorite music or creating a calming background sound. 

New Furniture Makes for Backyard Comfort

A beautiful, inviting patio needs great seating so you can linger and enjoy even more. Consider adding a comfy outdoor sofa and cushioned chairs. If you enjoy grilling, an outdoor dining table will be a great addition for eating on your patio. Be sure all furniture is rated for outdoor use to prevent fading and increase longevity. 

Add Shade to Your Dream Patio

Beautiful, sunny weather is key to patio enjoyment. However, at times the sun can create discomfort on your patio with intolerable glares and rising temperatures. To prevent this and keep the fun going, add a shade solution to your patio. With the addition of a retractable awning, you can dine, chat, and linger all afternoon in shaded comfort. At SummerSpace, we offer three high quality retractable awning series to meet your needs and fit your patio. SummerSpace retractable awnings are backed by our warranty guarantees. You will love the quality, simplicity, and stunning look of your SummerSpace awning. Add shaded comfort to your dream backyard. 

Laughter. Friendship. Relaxation. Delicious meals from the grill. These are just a few of the many things you can enjoy in your outside space. On your dream patio, you can do these things under the comfort of a SummerSpace retractable awning. Contact our local dealers to order your patio awning and make your dream backyard a reality.
