Every good summer adventure begins at home in your own backyard. All you need is a plate full of barbecue, a perfect playlist, a laid-back summer day, and an inviting patio for the perfect summer staycation. But sometimes, the hardest part of patio design is figuring out where you want to begin.

If you’re thinking of remodeling your patio this summer, get ready for great ideas from The Construction Group in Woodbury. In this post, we’re breaking down some of our top fantastic patio remodel ideas for you to steal and use for your Twin Cities area home. Give us a call to share your patio remodeling ideas and set the stage for magical summer evenings all season long!

1.   Farmer’s Market Fabulous

If you love nothing more than sharing a fresh, organic meal over a pitcher of your favorite sangria, try transforming your patio with the magic of a farmer’s market on a perfect evening. Fill your space with planters that work double duty as a container garden and natural decor, and string market lights over your space for a charming vibe that’s perfect for entertaining guests!

2.   Home and Hearth

Few things say summer like s’mores. But with a custom outdoor fireplace, you can enjoy gathering around the fire all summer long and well into the fall. Add an outdoor space heater and fire up the fireplace for cozy conversations on brisk autumn evenings. Just add hot cocoa and a couple of blankets, and you’ve set the stage for a magical evening.

3.   Holding Court

Smaller backyards and irregular spaces can be awkward when it comes to patio designs. One of our favorite solutions is to add extra-tall modern privacy walls to section off the space and create a private courtyard for your own secluded little slice of paradise.

4.   Flavor Town

If you love outdoor dining, why not transform your patio into an outdoor eating and dining space you can spend all of those summer evenings in? Consider adding a quality smoker, a brick oven, and a dining area underneath a relaxing pergola. The only thing missing is the barbecue!

5.   Cocktail Hour

One way to elevate your patio space is with an outdoor bar and barstools. The options are practically limitless from standalone bars with narrow bar counters to covered and complete, fully-stocked bars with small kitchenettes. You can even install a flat-screen television so you can watch the game. Market lights are perfect for these outdoor oases. With the addition of a couple of outdoor heaters, you’ll be able to relax outdoors on those cooler autumn and spring evenings as well.

6.   Pretty Pavers

Make your outdoor patio space feel more formal with a stunning paver design. Concrete pavers are available in an almost limitless array of sizes, styles, and shapes for just about every taste and decorative design.

Create a beautiful outdoor space with unique textures and finishes from etchings to hand carving and stamping, and then apply a custom finish in the color of your choice. Or go with cobblestone, flagstone, or brick pavers. Use large paving stones set in pea gravel or a completely paved surface depending on your taste and backyard design. You can even get creative and alternate colors and stones to create unique designs from spirals to checkerboards.

7.   Built-in Storage Benches

If you’re short on seating and storage, consider adding built-in wrap-around seating that doubles as storage. Add comfortable cushions and pillows, and you’ll have all the seating you need for your next big summer party. You’ll also have plenty of storage available for stashing all of your kids’ toys, outdoor games, and gardening equipment.

8.   Recycled Magic

If you’re interested in easing your household’s impact on the environment, a backyard is a great place to start because it’s so easy to find ways to repurpose items in backyard designs. Pallets, tires, wheelbarrows, and even glass bottles can be fantastic items to integrate into your patio design with uniquely customized planters, seating, and more.

9.   Beachy Keen

Who needs an ocean? With a dreamy shaded pergola and all the lovely details you’d find in a Hamptons spa, life’s a beach. Sheer, draped fabrics and dusty seaside hues are the perfect touches for your maritime-inspired hideout. All you need are a few wooden beach chairs, beadboard accents, your favorite dime-store novel, and a pitcher of lemonade. And don’t forget your yacht rock playlist!
