Outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, firepits and patios are fabulous ways to expand your living space and increase the value of your home.
When the weather warms, it feels like everything is better when you do it outside – hanging out with the family, hosting friends for drinks or dinner, or just lazing the day away on a lounger – divine. And as the days get cooler, fireplaces and firepits extend the season.
Whatever your style, it’s outdoor living at its best, and Patterned Concrete® solutions are the perfect way to customize your vision to become an envy-inducing reality.
When it comes to patios, there are no rules. Start by thinking about how you want to use them. If you love to barbeque and host your friends (a few or a lot), you’ll need open space with room for furniture. A quiet hideaway with a book and a garden? Patios can be intimate spaces as well. Maybe you want both? Patio spaces can be at the front, side or back of your home. Why not follow the sun – or the shade as the day wears on. And, of course, pool patios and surrounds are a given.
Patterned Concrete® products are the perfect solution for commercial applications as well. Not everyone has the luxury of a backyard oasis. Even when you do, there’s nothing like a restaurant patio.
Firepits and outdoor fireplaces are a hot outdoor must-have. Simple or sophisticated, gas or wood-burning, raised or sunken, they’re the source of instant ambiance and take your outdoor living well into the colder months. And the source of endless ways to bring warmth and style to your outdoor space.
Does your taste run to modern and contemporary? You’ll love Motivo Moderno. Old world style? Feel like your yard transforms into an Italian piazza with concrete designs from our classic Origins series. Bridging old and new? Our Ardesia split-stone series. All-natural? Patterned Concrete®’s Quarry Naturals series is a cost-effective solution that is unmistakeably hand-hewn. It features the unmistakable scars and textures of rock-hewn from the same ground as dimension stone, aggregate, riprap, sand, gravel and slate. And you’ll find it hard to believe it’s concrete.
Patterned Concrete® products give you ultimate flexibility and customization. When you’re going beyond pool surrounds to patios – wherever they are around your home, firepits, outdoor kitchens, garden features and fountains, they provide seamless and stunning design options. Mix colours, textures and finishes, or combine them with our other Signature Styles like Gemento for unique effects. Perhaps consider polished concrete dining and counter surfaces for your outdoor kitchen. The design choices are unlimited.
Just as we all want summer to live on, the choice you make and specify for that fantastic patio, firepit, fireplace and outdoor kitchen space needs to live on as well. You’ll likely spend a lot of time researching the best fireplace option, barbeque, pool and patio furniture. The style, colour, shape, texture, finish and quality of your materials are equally important. Will they last? Fade? Be high maintenance? What if I want to add on years down the road? Will the colour be the same? The finish? Or will it look like an add-on afterthought? Will it even be available? Patterned Concrete® precisely tracks every project to the smallest detail, so you can add on and expand your vision, even many years later, assured of a perfect match.
There is no substitute for excellence. Patterned Concrete® patio solutions are almost maintenance-free and proven to stand the test of time – still looking great years later.
