A space that used to be the center of family get-togethers now looks dull and uninviting. This is how you know your patio needs a little bit of TLC (tender loving care). And doing so doesn’t have to take much out of your wallet either.
To help, we’ve gathered some patio renovation ideas to help you refresh your space. Read on to find out what they are:
Create Wooden Accents
Add some wooden accents to your patio to help freshen it up. The great thing about wooden furniture is that there are many ways to build them yourself. Just pick up some wood at your local hardware store and start building!
Also, consider switching out some of your floorings to wood flooring. This can change the whole mood of your patio.
Add Some Shade

Add a Plant Wall
Spring is coming and that means plants and lots of them! Picking the perfect ones for your patio will make the biggest difference.
Do you have a harsh wall near your patio that brings down the mood? Add some plants with vines that will crawl up the wall. This will bring a soft earthy feel to the space.
If your family will be spending lots of time outside then it’s time to start thinking about useful furniture. Look for benches or outdoor ottomans that offer storage for your things as well.
Look towards chairs and tables with waterproof cushions. So, after it rains you and your family are ready to hit the outdoors!
Don’t be afraid to add some color to your patio renovation! Swap out seating cushions for bright colors such as Cherry Tomato or Pink Lavender. Both colors that are predicted to be trendy this spring.
Patio Renovation Lighting
You’ll probably be spending a lot of late nights out on your patio this spring. Which means creative lighting in a must in your patio renovation.
Repurpose your Christmas lights and hang them above your patio for a soft look. Add a fire pit in the middle of your patio for a rustic feel and nights full of s’mores!
To save water and keep your plants looking great. Consider installing a rainwater system. This can be done in creative ways and even be set up to maintain a fountain or small pond near your patio.
