Perk Up Your Patio

It’s easier to enjoy your backyard when you have a nice patio. If you have a basic concrete slab, why not check tile off your home renovations checklist? Porcelain tile flooring is durable and stylish. It’s also affordable, frost-resistant and suitable for outdoor applications. Best of all, it’s easy to install over an existing concrete patio — click here to learn how!

Other great additions to a patio area include comfortable seating, potted plants that repel mosquitos, and an outdoor kitchen for grilling. You should also pay attention to landscaping the surrounding area and adding illumination for nighttime enjoyment. It can be as simple as adding string lights or as exciting as building your own fire pit for roasting marshmallows.
