Outdoor patio spaces are perfect for enjoying those long summer days with friends and family.  Why not get a jump-start on the season and get your outdoor space summer ready with a patio remodel?  Whether your space is small or large, below are ideas and inspiration to spark your creativity and help get you started on creating the perfect outdoor space for an endless summer.

The Outdoor Fireplace

An outdoor fireplace is key in a successful patio design.  No matter how warm your climate is, the sun will always go down at some point and the weather will cool off.  A fireplace prevents the cool weather from spoiling your summer fun, letting you enjoy the outdoors for a little longer.

For your fireplace design, try sticking with natural stones or even stucco, paired with a classic field tile and a few Handpainted tile accents.

The Outdoor Dining Table

Another great addition to your outdoor patio remodel is a dining space large enough for gatherings.  Having a complete dining set outdoors allows you to serve meals outside and provides ample seating for your guest.  If your space isn't large enough for a full dining set try a bar style table with bar stools, which will take up less space, and if you have some extra room add a couple comfortable patio-style chairs.

Interesting floors

An outdoor patio is a great place to show off your personality through design.  Instead of sticking to a plain floor design, throw in some pattern or color!  We love how this patio used our Star & Cross pattern in a natural hue to add character and texture to their outdoor dining area.
