Patios and outdoor bars become much more popular and centers of attention in summer. Maybe it is time to renovate the patio or the outdoor dining area that you have been meaning to for a very long time. It is the perfect timing with summer getting closer. If you are thinking about it but are not sure yet, this article may help you and give you what you need to renovate your outdoor space.
First things first, you need to start with choosing the right counter. There are few factors to consider such as the exposure of direct sunlight, climate changes, and the placement of your bar and furniture. You have to consider the climate of your area. Granite and concrete are usually the most favorable options among homeowners. Marble is considered to be too porous and quartz may fade in color from direct exposure to sunlight since it is an engineered stone. It is better to ask for a professional help. Our professional staff at Terra Granite can inform you about each and every product and help you to find the best option for you.
You may choose to do a DIY project for your patio or outdoor bar but it is best to have a professional help since this is an outdoor project. Outside usually means sun, rain, cold, heat, humidity, mud, rust, dust and much more. So you need to make sure everything is properly installed and sealed or your materials will weary and damage quickly. If you want to have long-lasting materials, it is always best to get some professional help from the experts.
After you’ve selected the material, it is important to ensure a variety of seating options since the number of your company may vary. If you are a fan of hosting big barbecue parties, you will need a larger seating arrangement at the patio so that your guests can relax and engage with each other. If you are fond of entertaining small groups of guests, then you may want to add an outdoor bar with barstools or counter-height chairs to dine and socialize. It all depends on your choice.
Another important factor to consider is the availability of the space. It is important to have a comfortable and easy access between the house and the patio. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors are what you need to complete the perfect patio. They provide a large entrance, are easy to carry in and out the stuff, let in plenty of natural sunlight and also provide a seamless transition from inside to the outside and vice versa.
Also, If you are not a fan of walking in and out, than installing an outdoor fridge can solve your problems. If you are not using your patio often, then it is not necessary but if you are frequently using your patio, having an outdoor fridge can really help you a lot by saving numerous trips to the kitchen and back. Lighting the area is also very important since you are more likely to use your patio or bar in the evenings. Make sure your patio has plenty of decorative lighting. This will shift the aura of your patio immediately. You can use all sorts of different lighting options. You can have rustic lanterns or modern fixtures. You can even add some twinkly lights to transform your patio into a completely different look in the evenings.
And finally, make sure you include plenty of plants and flowers into your patio. The main purpose of an outdoor dining or seating area is to engage with the nature. Having beautiful plants and flowers will complete your patio look. You can choose from many different options. But we promise that whatever you chose, it will complete your patio décor.
