Design Tips And Ideas For Your Concrete Patio

Concrete patios are a great addition to your Texas home. Having a concrete patio in your south DFW home allows you to throw epic BBQ parties where you can smoke your brisket, have family dinners or just relax with your favourite drink. Since in Texas the weather allows us to live outside for most of the year, we can make great use of our concrete patios. In this article, we’ll go over some tips and ideas you can put to use to enhance the beauty of your concrete patio!

Paint your concrete

A great idea to give your outdoor concrete patio a nice twist is to paint it, or part of it. You can paint it in different shades of grey, and you can even create a pattern, like squares of a diamond shape. If you’re up for it, you can even use more bright colors, like yellow or orange! 

Use pavers

Using pavers to create borders and curves around the concrete slab. You can be very creative with adding pavers. You can design pathways with pavers that go from your concrete patios through your garden or you can create a firepit with pavers. The options are endless.

Add a Retaining wall 

Retaining walls are a great way to add texture to your garden. Retaining walls can come in the form of planters or a firepit. 

Pick a theme

Enhance your concrete patio and totally transform your space by adding a few extra elements like outdoor lighting, an outdoor rug, planters and outdoor furniture. You can add extra little things like candle holders etc. Picking a theme (like country or boho) and staying in that style will create a harmonious outdoor space. 

Lay a deck

Hopefully, these tips gave you some inspiration for what you can do to enhance your outdoor concrete patio. And if not, go ahead and look up these fantastic restaurants in Dallas, that all use an outdoor patio. In times of Covid, a lot of restaurants had to improvise to accommodate guests and many of them did that by adding an outdoor patio. 

But now, after the entire Covid mess, these restaurants thrive on their beautifully build concrete patios. At Ferris Wheeler, you can sit down in a nice setting eating amazing foods like smoked brisket, pulled pork and much more. Thunderbird in Deep Ellum is another restaurant whose highlight is the patio with many picnic benches and firepits. They also have pop-up events throughout the year.
