So many times, home builders leave the new homeowners with nothing more than a 10×10 slab of concrete outside a set of French doors for a patio. This is rarely enough room for the average family with children or any couple that does much entertaining. Consider enlarging your outdoor living space for additional room.
Room to Maneuver
By the time you open the doors wide, you’ve already eaten into part of the space, leaving you with very little room in which to maneuver around the patio space you have remaining. The first thing you may want to consider doing in your patio remodeling quest is to expand the size of your patio. This is especially important if you want to put a quality 6-seat set in your open space.
Liven Up Your Larger Patio
Now that you have your bigger patio, liven it up with flowers and greenery or other decor. Line your wall areas with a trellis that has climbing roses or perhaps place an arbor over the space. These bright colors and beautiful blooms add areas of interest that detract from the bareness of the slab.
Adding wrought iron tables and chairs or a quality teak set will also create eye catching visual that’s both beautiful and useful. Don’t leave your slab plain for long as small touches can make a big difference.
