Remodeling an outdoor patio area can be a big investment but will significantly increase your property value. When choosing the materials to redesign your patio, carefully consider what will be esthetically pleasing, functional, durable, and easily maintainable. This careful consideration will surely provide you with a finished product you are happy with and add resale value to your home.
Natural stone is always a good choice for remodeling an outdoor patio. Not only is it a beautiful material, but it is also a classic and timeless option that will always stay in style. Here are some tips for incorporating natural stone into your patio design.
Make Your Patio a Central Feature
When designing a patio, consider what you will be using the patio for most of the time. Do you enjoy relaxing and disconnecting from the world? What about entertaining small groups or large groups? Or playing with the kids in a family-friendly space? In any case, choosing a central feature is the starting point for a successful design. For instance, a bold and innovative design that includes natural stone pavers around the fire pit in the center of a patio provides a stunning focal point and also helps divide the space according to use.
Add Texture with Irregularly Shaped Stones
Within the patio, there’s no rule to laying patterns. If you are using natural stone cut into dimensional shapes, you can create unique spaces within your patio by altering the laying pattern. For example, you could have a curved patio made with dimensionally cut natural stone, with a random uncut flagstone gathering area around a fireplace for a rustic touch. Incorporating irregularly shaped stones into your patio design adds a unique texture and visual interest to your outdoor space. At Lehnhoff’s Supply, we can help you choose the perfect natural stone to achieve the look you want for your outdoor space.
Include Natural Stone Steps into Your Patio Design
Incorporating natural stone steps into your hardscape design adds functionality and creates a seamless transition between different levels of your backyard. Natural stone steps can be customized to match the style of your home and complement your patio design. Adding natural stone is a great way to enhance your backyard’s aesthetic appeal and functionality.
