Deluxe outdoor living spaces combine multiple features allowing homeowners to enjoy the outdoors however they see fit. Like each component of a fancy dinner, these living spaces (decks, porches, and more) all have individual strengths that create a tasteful collaboration when combined with one another. Columbia homeowners considering the addition of a combination outdoor space should consider the patio, specifically the paver patio, as the main course when planning their project. Here at Archadeck of Central SC, our team of experts can design and customize a paver patio to fulfill the vision you have for your hardscapes.
Paver patios open up a wide range of design possibilities like no other outdoor living structure can. Homeowners can integrate different structural elements, textures and colors in order to craft a space that brings them joy and comfort. From those looking to get their hands dirty in the garden or in the kitchen, to folks just looking for a place to soak up the sun, you can easily customize your paver patio to nurture your lifestyle.
If you have a green thumb, custom planters and retaining walls are a fantastic way to make your plants stand out, as their decorative stone look will complement your flowers’ natural beauty. Those who love to cook and entertain outdoors will enjoy a paver patio equipped with an outdoor kitchen designed with visual style and versatility in mind. Of course, with paver patios, you aren’t limited to just one feature! Your patio could include planters, an outdoor kitchen, built-in seating or retaining walls and more!
A great alternative to a paver patio is a stain and stamp concrete patio. At a more economical price than pavers, this stained concrete allows room in your budget for other elements. Take a look at the way we combined a stain and stamp patio with a stone retaining wall and custom fire pit on this project in NE Columbia:
That’s not to say a patio alone offers the best outdoor living experience. Some of the best Columbia SC Deluxe Outdoor Living Spaces creatively combine the strengths of different structures in order to deliver a beautiful and practical living space. For example, backyards with a beautiful view could really benefit from a well-designed deck. Fortunately, there are no rules that dictate you can’t have it all — a spacious deck and a beautiful paver patio!
Comparing decks, patios and other outdoor living spaces is a lot like comparing apples and oranges: at the end of the day, you’re better off enjoying both. Still, one of the reasons so many people consider paver patios is because they are incredibly low-maintenance.
Once your patio is installed, it is so easy to maintain. Often times the only thing you’ll need to do to get it ready for a get -together is sweep off any leaves that have blown onto it! Occasional cleaning will keep your paver patio looking just as beautiful as the day it was installed. We do however recommend resealing once every two-to-three years to ensure your patio stands the test of time.
