Nothing makes your property quite as enjoyable as a stone patio design that creates an outdoor living space. By transforming an area of your yard from lawn to a stone surface, you’ll be able to host family and friends on a sturdy and defined area that can be furnished with comfortable furniture, a grill, and other amenities. Here are three top patio designs using real stone veneer that transform your lifestyle.
Arbor Patio Designs
First of all, one classic style to patio design is the overhead arbor with a stone of flagstone flooring. This setup offers a blend of sunlight limiting options. For instance, many people allow traditional grapevines to flourish. Others cultivate flowering vines with rich scents such as honeysuckle. These plants offer a varying degree of shade. You can also run colored material to reduce sunlight.
Large flagstones or brick provide a highly-defined area for relaxation, grilling, or eating out. Many contemporary designs are utilizing real stone veneer at the base of the arbor posts to bring the entire patio together. Real stone veneer tends to be relatively inexpensive and provides a great deal of flexibility in terms of rapping other objects such as bars, fixed grills, or fire pits.
Using Real Stone Veneer Panels for Pool Patios
Furthermore, in-ground pools make wonderful recreational additions to your home. After the initial installation, many homeowners begin imagining the abutting space being more functional and relaxing. The next logical step toward embracing greater outdoor living is creating a full-blown pool patio.
If you make a checklist of the things you’d like to enjoy by the pool, it would probably include a stone veneer fireplace, wet bar, fixed grill, dining area, and comfortable furniture. Obviously, you’ll need additional stone surfaces and matching real stone veneer on the faces of things like a breakfast or dining station. You’ll again want to install real stone veneer at the bases of any posts, large flower boxes, and resurfacing the pool-house can tie the entire property together. The best pool patios unify the overall grounds through stone and wood.
Zen Garden Patios
Another direction to take is to utilize stone to create sitting areas among vibrant gardens. The basic idea is to build flagstone or brick walkways through blooming flowers, greenery, and vines. And, the walkways lead to quaint sitting areas that aren’t necessarily utilized for entertaining or general living spaces. They’re more of a place to enjoy quiet time. They often include real stone veneer to cover arbor posts from base to top that matches the walking paths. In addition, thriving green vines tends to set off the stone facades and complete the intimate Zen garden.
