If you are ready to pour a concrete patio and you want to create an entire entertaining space in your back yard, there are some different features and things you want to look into. You can bring in some appliances and work with the concrete contractor to get a backyard that you can use like a kitchen, and that is great for entertaining, and that looks great outside the home. Here are some of the features you want to get estimates for, and that you want to see design options for before the backyard patio is poured and stamped or sealed.
Have a grill installed in a wall or outdoor kitchen area so you don't have to worry about putting the grill away. You want to find a high quality grill that can tolerate the weathering and humidity, and one that you can hook up a gas line to from the house. This way you don't have to worry about changing out tanks. Other appliances like a refrigerator is also nice.
Have concrete countertops poured for the outdoor kitchen area. The countertops are nice because they are resistant to weathering and temperature changes, they can be sealed, the concrete is very durable, and it is an aesthetically pleasing material for outside the home. You can have these stamped and stained to look like any material or color.
When you have a concrete poured, talk with the concrete contractor about having a custom fireplace created out of the concrete. This way you don't have to worry about moving a fireplace around your property, and it will already match the concrete that you have poured. They can do a beveled edge wall around the fire pit or other options, depending on the amount of room you have
Adding these types of features to the back of your house will improve the property value of your home, and it will allow you to use the backyard like an outdoor living space. Talk with the concrete contractor about what will be the most practical and cost efficient for the area where you live, and what they can do to make everything look great at a price you can afford. Concrete is a great material to work with when it comes to creating a patio and other features like walkways and countertops, so pick out a layout and design idea and add this to your property.
