How does your patio look?

How does your patio look? When you live in an apartment complex, you might not need to do anything to it. Well, at least in terms of upkeep. But when you own a home, maintaining the patio does become your responsibility. As the years go by and the seasons bring wild weather, your patio could start looking a bit sad. Here are some ideas for how to perk up your outdoor living area this fall before winter comes! 

Add a Stylish “Floor” to It 

Let’s start from the bottom for now. You might be wondering why we put “floor” in quotations. That’s because we’re skirting the actual definition of what a floor for a structure is. Pick a durable rug decked out in seasonal colors and patterns. That’s a quick way to add some zest to your patio! You can also try your hand at painting a “rug” or “carpet” directly onto the wood or concrete. 

Make a Patio Space 

You can raise an outdoor living space where there wasn’t one before if you are so inclined. In many cases, it’s wiser to hire professional contractors to do this. But for the most industrious DIY homeowners, it’s possible to get it done without outside help. So when you lack a deck or porch, get creative! Recycled rubber pavers are an eco-friendly alternative. Throw on some stone and mulch, and you’ve got a walkway with minimal effort!

Install a Cheerful Fire Pit 

With cooler weather coming (even if it doesn’t feel like it), it’s a great time to set up a fire pit. Coffee, smores, and burgers are all wonderful accompaniment options for an evening around the fire. Besides, Halloween is about two weeks away – why not tell some ghost stories while you’re at it? It’s all fun and games as long as you get a covered fire pit and follow all of your local guidelines related to it.

Cover It Up in Clever Ways 

Even though the days are slouching into cloudy sweater weather, the sun won’t be denied. Thus, you’ll have to come up with savvy ways to cover up your patio. Pergolas outfitted with curtains and drapes make for a dreamy configuration! Some simple hooks or curtain rods make the magic happen!
