7 Stylish Ways to Spruce Up Your Back Patio

Thursday, November 10, 2016

Back patios are the new ‘must have’ living space and well worth the investment. Try these 7 stylish ways to spruce up your back patio and create an amazing outdoor living area for your family:


  • Add a deck! Building a deck onto your patio can more than triple your space to make a fabulous and functional outdoor living room. Decks are also great to level out a sloping yard.
  • Who said you can’t decorate the outdoors? Find some cozy furniture (Lowe’s has great outdoor sets!), a colorful rug, throw in some comfy pillows and you have an official outdoor living room. More space equals more fun and value for your home!
  • There is nothing like the soothing sound of running water. Add a water feature to your back patio and up your relaxation factor. With a little Pinterest help, you can even make your own DIY fountain out of a ceramic pot.
  • Need a little privacy? Have your very own pergola built to fancy up your patio. Pergolas not only add private space, but also help create a functional living area. Throw in an outdoor ceiling fan and some twinkle lights and you will never want to go inside.
  • Build a patio bar! Outdoor living rooms are made for entertaining and what better way to amp up the fun than with a wooden bar complete with wine cooler and glass rack.
  • Who doesn’t love a porch swing? This isn’t your grandma’s swing - modern swings are padded with thick cushions and even drink holders. So, relax and swing away!
  • Pave a path to your patio with brick or tile pavers. Pavers add charm and definition to an outdoor space and create a dry walkway during rainy season.

Your back patio isn’t just empty space; it can be transformed into an amazing living area for you and your family. So, get creative, get your HGTV on, and go to town!
