How to Design an Outdoor Patio

Tips and Tricks to Making the Most of your Outdoor Space

Give your home an instant update with an awesome patio. With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to begin updating your backyard into a beautiful extension of your home. When deciding on an outdoor space, one of the first things you must decide, is if you want your new patio to reflect the interior of your home or if you want to make it a separate theme entirely.

Consider the Design of your HomeDesigning An Outdoor Patio In Mequon

For example, if your interior decorating is heavily influenced by minimalist modern designs, you can easily reflect the same style in your outdoor patio. Choosing a neat, uniform paver stone or grey brick with simple, unobtrusive backyard furniture is an excellent way to continue a sleek look outdoors.

Many people opt to make their backyard area its own unique space, stylistically separated from the home’s interior. Transform your backyard into a rustic getaway or charming English garden, regardless of your interior decorating. Our Mequon landscapers will work with you to create a pleasing space, where you can relax and unwind after a long day.

Set a Project Budget

As great as a diamond encrusted, solid-gold paver patio would look, it’s out of most people’s budgets. Designing a gorgeous patio within your budget is just as important as figuring out the style you want.

The Oberndorfer hardscaping team can design a beautiful patio to meet almost any budget. From economical paver stones to flagstones, we use only high quality materials.

Our hardscape installation professionals can bring almost any design to life. Naturally, the more elaborate your design, the higher the cost. A professionally installed patio does increase your home value, typically recouping 70% of its value when you sell your home.

Choosing Patio Furniture

Once you have decided on an outdoor design, you can begin to accent it with furniture. Due to the constantly changing Wisconsin climate, it’s important to pick outdoor furniture which is waterproof and resistant to UV fading.

With that being said, even the hardiest outdoor furniture should be moved or stored inside during extreme winter weather. Leaving your new patio furniture outdoors all winter will cause damage, and you’ll end up having to buy new furniture when summer rolls around again.
