If you are talking about dream backyard patio designs, could it get any better than this Mediterranean paradise. Can you imagine relaxing by an infinity pool surrounded by luxurious features like a personal putting green, hot tub, outdoor living room complete with fireplace bar and television, second chefs kitchen, and a lovely hot tub. You would think that all of these cool elements may look mismatched and cluttered when combined into a single backyard, but I think that the architectural detailing and material they used like lovely limestone patio pavers saves the design from being too overwhelming. Obviously most of us will not be incorporating most of these lavish backyard patio ideas into our homes, but we can take inspiration from this glamorous design and add a few fun touches.
This photo illustrates a professionally executed remodel of an outdoor patio. The designer and contractors had to work within the context of a distinctive housing style complete with brick siding, dormers, concrete steps leading up to the house’s back entrance, and large areas of lawn, necessitating creative but fairly conservative patio design ideas. Pavers rather than bricks were chosen, because of the house’s already existing brick siding. Medium-large pavers were in keeping with the large house and contrasted nicely with the relatively small bricks used in the siding. The muted paver colors prevented a clash with the colored brick siding and bright green lawn areas.
When we were looking at adding a wooden deck to our new house over the summer, it didn't take my wife and I long to notice the advantages of going with concrete patio designs instead. While a wooden deck is bound by certain design necessities – they're generally attached to the house, for instance – today's concrete designs give you much more flexibility to create your own original outdoor space, one that fits perfectly with your vision. We searched through a number of outdoor patio ideas before we decided to create a completely separate space some distance from the house, as you can see in this photo. This gave us a peaceful oasis with an amazing view.
We want our home to look and feel as chic as possible, so we started tossing around concrete patio ideas. We loved the thought of a sleek outdoor kitchen with its own fridge, stove and handsome cabinets. Immediately, I envisioned how much fun my buddies and I would have playing cards at the outside table and cooling off in the gorgeous pool. Then I suggested a few covered patio ideas. For example, we could build one with plush carpet or exotic tile with sliding storm shutters for the hurricane season. They can be open and closed in just seconds. That way, we could enjoy the great outdoors while watching football on the giant flat screen.
When my client first contacted me about an outdoor remodel, she was stumped for patio decor. She felt everything she had viewed to that point had been bland and unoriginal. She wanted something that expressed her unique personality while remaining simple and elegant with minimal clutter. After viewing the area, I was able to provide her with a variety of paver patio ideas that were tailored to the space and her specific taste. She was so pleased with the project that she intends to return to my business for future backyard patio ideas. The result was this open concept with multicolored patio tile, simple patio decor, soft pink floral accents, and gradual steps leading into the lush backyard.
My client’s stately brick home had always been surrounded by a lush, green, meticulously manicured lawn. As she and her partner grew older, they wanted a lower maintenance venue and asked me for some suggestions on outdoor patio designs. They wanted something that could double as an elegant setting for outdoor dining and an open space for entertaining. I ran a few stone patio ideas by them and after reviewing several options, we decided a flagstone design in varying shades of gray would perfectly complement the red brick façade of their home. Since the completion of the project, I’ve received several referrals from these clients from friends who want to know what other creative backyard patio ideas I have for them.We chose a pattern of rectangular stones instead of circular or randomly shaped ones to harmonize with the rectangular bricks on the house and the existing firepit stones.
