Five Outdoor Patio Trends for Fall | Bethesda, MD
Fall is here, and with it comes your last chance to get some outdoor maintenance and yardwork done before the winter. Outdoor patios are increasingly becoming a trendy way to expand your living space. We’ve got six trends in outdoor patio design to inspire you this fall.
Natural stone patio
Natural stone makes a great choice for outdoor patios, because it complements the landscape. A slate patio, for example, adds rich and natural texture and color to your home while blending seamlessly into your garden or lawn.
Patios these days are all about multiple uses. Many homeowners put their grills on their patios, have chaises for lounging, or install a small dining table for al fresco parties. When planning your patio, think about how you want to use it and design for multi-use.
Embedded fire pits
Another major trend in outdoor living is fire puts. We’re seeing more and more patios that accommodate fire pits, either built right into the patio or installed on it. Stone patios are perfect for fire pits as the material is naturally non-flammable. Other popular trends to consider instead of or in addition to a fire pit include fireplaces and outdoor brick ovens.
Lots of homeowners are opting to add small container gardens to the edges of their patios to mix the patio space with the yard space. Herb gardens are popular, as it is easy to come out and take a clipping of fresh herbs to use for dinner.
At night, your patio can be difficult to use if you do not have installed lighting. We’re seeing a lot of patios these days factor in LED lighting, which does not consume a lot of power and lasts a long time.
