We often find that the patio is the most versatile room of the house. And it's it not even IN the house. It can be an outdoor kitchen one minute and a dining room the next. On the weekend, it's everything from a craft room to a reading nook to an herb garden! It definitely makes a great playroom and when the weather's right, it is the perfect place to go do nothing at all.
Is your patio ready for summer? Or has it quite frankly seen better days? The thermometer tells us that now is the perfect time to give your stained, boring concrete patio new luster. There's nothing like relaxing outside on a warm summer night, listening to the crickets sing and watching the sky grow dark. And there's no better place to get your summertime relaxation on than a beautifully resurfaced patio… with plenty of citronella around, of course.
Stamped overlays are an economical way to get the attractive look of brick or stone without having to build a patio from scratch. When it comes to stamping a patio, you may choose to keep things simple and timeless with a stone or brick border or go bold by stamping the whole area. The choice is yours! A full-patio stamping can add a lot of visual interest and personal pizzazz to your outdoor space. Plus, the stamped layer's final coating will provide superior protection to your outdoor floors for years to come.
Perhaps you already like the look of your patio. It just needs a fresh coat of paint, so to speak. No problem! What you need is a chemical stain treatment or decorative coating. Concrete chemical stains, also called acid stains, allow you to change the color of the patio you already have and create a totally unique living space. Color options range from tame terra cottas to funky greens and teals, so you are sure to find something you love. Other decorative coatings can bring texture and color to your backyard bliss zone. It's all just a matter of discovering what's right for you. Patio season is already upon us… Get started today!
