Imke Delara. Patio & Pergola. July 20th , 2017.
Like any large city, the greater Kansas City area has many homes with smaller backyards. Fortunately, concrete patio design can be developed in such as way as to make the most of these smaller spaces. Concrete can be made to look like stone, slate or marble, and it can be polished or given the appearance of large or small bricks. Pre-cut pavers are also an excellent choice for a patio, and homeowners can enjoy the sensation of an Italian Palazzo or woodsy retreat in their own backyard. A good concrete company can give suggestions and offer examples of their work.
Designers and manufacturers are honing products originally thought to cater to restaurants, outdoor bistros and factory floors, for the average home use. Comfortable patio furniture, gas BBQ grills, weather resistant patio umbrellas, chimaeras, and now outdoor heating units are all affordable items to help lengthen your summer vacations and entertain guests even on the chilliest of nights.
One area where a power washer does come in handy is on the floor. Use a power washing attachment to scrub your patio floor clean. It works a treat on concrete, tiles, and hard surfaces. Once your floor is nice and clean, reseal and add fresh grout if you have a tiled floor, re-varnish a timber floor, or invest in some new rugs.
Lighting is important on a patio, especially if you love to entertain in the evening. Fit some solar lights. Solar string lights are very pretty at night, but make sure you hang them where they have access to direct sunlight.
