With summer in full swing, we’re all spending more time outdoors. What better time to look into a few easy, cost-effective upgrades to your outdoor space! Let’s start by taking a good look at what you have at hand and consider your goals for your space. With just a little work, you can make your deck and patio amazing. And, when you’re ready to finally add that deck or make a major patio overhaul, talk to the expert team at Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services.
Nicely-draped white lights or outdoor fixtures can really enhance a patio, bringing softness and luxury to outdoor parties. Solar-powered lights and low-voltage landscape lighting are also good choices
Refinish the Deck
By refinishing your deck, you’ll greatly extend the life of the wood. It will be protected against moisture, sun, and wear from heavy use. Make sure you thoroughly prep the surface with power washing or sanding, removing any old stain. Check the weather forecast, because you’ll need a few sunny days to finish the project.
Add Shade with a Canopy, Awning, or Pergola
Does your deck get a lot of sun, especially at the time of day you want to use it most? This might be a more significant investment, but adding a shade element will make your deck more usable. Especially consider adding shade to the areas of the deck where you cook or eat. Some canopies or awnings are easier to set up than others, so take your time and explore the options.
Add Attractive Storage
Are your kids’ toys everywhere you look getting you down? Find an attractive outdoor storage container that can hide them all away. Match it to the rest of your outdoor furniture, or consider a lidded bench that can double as seating.
