An expansive outdoor patio on this transitional beachside home features fully retracting doors that create one space between the interior and exterior. Low chaise longues offer a great spot for reading a good book and enjoying the ocean views, while C-shaped side tables provide a handy spot for a drink.
We’re all a fan of the deep grain texture that a wood deck offers, but aren’t fans of the maintenance that goes along with it. Good Life composite decking from Fiberon, in the subtle Cabin color, showcases rustic graining against more modern furnishing and clean, white composite railing – but never requires staining or painting.
Who said decks had to be square? Today’s trends favor unique shapes and eye-catching board designs (notice the darker inlay in Tudor Brown that highlights the seating area). The variegated streaking of the boards, Fiberon Horizon composite decking in Ipe, gives the space added drama.
The pergola's beam construction and dark staining integrates visually with the new beams at the front entrance and perimeter of this renovated country house. Three sets of wood-trimmed French doors line the patio and lead the way to the indoor space.
A custom designed table made from Italian porcelain flooring with a glass tile inlay is flanked by comfortable metal dining chairs with striped blue cushions in this outdoor dining area. The view from the table is expansive and opens up to hillsides covered in eucalyptus and palm trees and a comfortable lounge area with additional seating. The hillside lounge area is framed by two taupe pillars, a brick patio and a brown wood guardrail, emphasizing the neutral color palette of the garden.
Stones in warm terracotta shades are used from the house exterior and garden walls to the patio and water feature. A round patio surrounds the traditional urn-style water feature, which provides soothing sound ambiance to the space.
Now this is outdoor living! Even if you can’t add all these fun features, consider adding a fireplace or installing a roof over the deck. That way, a little rain doesn’t have to limit your outside time. For maximum elegance, choose Horizon composite decking, shown here in exotic Ipe.
Rustic stone is used throughout this southwestern patio, leading to a Arizona vacation home. An adobe-style fireplace adds warmth to the space, while a steel-tub water feature brings ambiance and a serene quality to the patio.
This composite deck from Fiberon features a darker inlay pattern that defines the outdoor dining area, the same way an outdoor rug would. Accessories provide pops of color to contrast the Fiberon Horizon Dark Walnut composite railing, matching post-sleeve lighting and round black balusters.
This newly renovated outdoor patio features a lively coastal style, as seen in the bright green furniture cushions and bold red flower wall hanging. The blue stucco exterior lends an ocean vibe, while neutral stone patio tiles finish off the look of the space.
