While it’s still chilly outside, you’re probably longing for summer days to spend in your back yard. But does your back yard need a face lift? Now’s the time to plan any springtime outdoor patio renovations to have your space looking great for the summer time.
Patio spaces are great for entertaining guests, but aside from seating, what else could you possibly need? Here are some things that you may be interested in asking a contractor about if you’re at a loss for renovations.
- Install a spa. Not only will spas be a big hit for group stay-cations in your back yard, you’ll also appreciate how much you’ll be able to relax in the space. Hot tubs are a go-to when it comes to building your perfect spa, but you may also want to consider adding a sauna or outdoor shower to rinse yourself off after a long soak. Of course, for some added privacy, consider setting this part of your patio apart from the rest with a dividing wall.
- Put in the in-ground pool you’ve always wanted. Pools are always nice in the summer. On a sweltering day, there’s nothing like taking a dip in the water and laying out on your patio to soak up the sun. If you want to turn your home into the go-to hangout spot this summer, a pool is definitely the way to go.
- Build an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens are great for people that are constantly entertaining. Especially if your indoor kitchen doesn’t directly connect to the backyard, an outdoor kitchen is hugely convenient and gives you the opportunity to chat away while you’re cooking up something tasty. These kitchens are full-service, not just your typical grill and cooler. You can have high-end stone countertops put in with a stainless steel sink, as well as an oversized range, refrigerator, and oven if you choose. You can also have a grill built in to get a perfect sear on a steak or to grill up some summer veggies on the fly. With so many amenities outside, you’ll barely touch your indoor kitchen. But why would you want to anyway?
If any of these ideas interest you, it’s time to call a contractor to get your quote on a patio renovation project before the rush comes in.
