Spruce up your Patio with These 4 Additions

We couldn't be more excited about the summer, and it's the best time to be outside to enjoy the warmer weather. Your backyard is your personal retreat to hang with friends, relax with your favorite book, or move dinner outdoors. Your patio may still be a blank canvas yet to be painted with your own layers of comfort, color, and style. Now is the time to spruce up your patio with these 4 additions.

Building an Outdoor Kitchenette

Change up the scenery and take dinner outside. Here is an opportunity to be creative and build your versatile grilling station, which is convenient for family dinners and entertaining. It's common for a summer kitchen to have a large work surface such as a table or countertop for preparing meals, so you don't have to keep going inside your house. Your kitchenette is not only a place to cook and prepare dishes but also a place to store food with built-in cabinets. Depending on the size of your patio, add a table close by to enjoy your meals.

Built-in Fire Pit

Add a fire pit to your yard if you want to lengthen your outdoor season into the chillier autumn months. You can add a stone fireplace build right into your patio. The warm glow of a fire pit encourages you to take advantage of your outdoor lounge space year-round. There's nothing quite as cozy as sitting around a fire pit roasting marshmallows under the moon's light. Children must always be supervised for fire pit safety, place a watering hose and fire extinguisher nearby, and have easy accessibility.

Decorate Your Patio

Pick a theme that will be reflected throughout your outdoor space, like the countryside, Adirondack, French, or Aztec. Add lighting like string lights and candles and furniture of different materials such as teak, wood, iron, or wicker that will be weatherproof for outdoor conditions. Seating comfort is the key to enjoying hours outdoors. Add a pop of color with pillows, throw blankets, and umbrellas. Today's outdoor pillows and cushions come in all shapes and sizes, even with extra support and comfort. 

Flower and Fauna Gardens

Patio gardens are not just for potted plants. So, whether you dream of country meadows, a modern, tropical vibe, or just fancy having a low-maintenance herb garden, there is something for everyone. If you want to turn heads, plant small trees in your space? Some of the best flowering trees, such as magnolia or ornamental cherry, make beautiful additions, boasting stunning florals when the weather begins to warm. When it comes to patio gardening ideas, it's essential to make the most of your space. Hanging baskets with all different flowers is a great idea. Even a climbing rose garden on your fence and design your very own succulent plant garden to grow outside.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services. Among these was the home improvement industry. Americans allocated record levels of capital toward home improvements; a study by Harvard University researchers determined home improvement spending increased 3% during 2020. Housebound Americans found the
