3 Ways To Give Your Patio A Fast Facelift

If you've recently purchased a home with great bones that needs some TLC, you undoubtedly are looking forward to spending many happy hours relaxing at home with family and friends. You're also anticipating the opportunity to fix your home up in a unique way according to the personal needs and preferences of you and your family. Naturally, you're going to want to spruce up your outdoor living space as well so you'll have a comfortable place for al fresco meals and other activities. Here are three ways to give your patio area a fast face lift. 

Pressure Wash the Surface

Patios that have been neglected tend to accumulate buildups of debris as well as lichen, mildew, moss, and even mold, particularly if they're located in an area that gets a significant amount of shade. If deciduous leaves or evergreen needles have been allowed to build up on the surface of the patio, they may have caused discoloration. A good pressure washing will remove much of this and improve the appearance of the patio's surface substantially. 

Have the Awning Repaired

Few things make a home exterior look more tawdry that a a torn awning or one that's been allowed to accumulate buildups of dirt, debris, and fungal organisms -- and it also won't keep out the raindrops if you enjoy sitting outdoors while it's sprinkling. Having your exterior awnings cleaned and repaired will give your home a fresh new look as well as make it possible for you and other household residents to enjoy your outdoor living space more. A professional awning repair service will come to your home, safely remove the awnings, and take them to their workshop where they can be restored to their original condition. This is a much more cost-effective option than replacing the awnings altogether. 

Add Color 

Longing for new patio furniture but have the funds earmarked for more pressing upgrades? A few outdoor pillows, tablecloths, and throws in vibrant colors and prints will punch up your patio look without costing a fortune. An inexpensive outdoor rug can work wonders to provide your patio area with a polished ambiance. You can also add pops of color by planting blooming annuals in pots and planters on your patio as well as herbs for a fresh green accent. Another great way to add color is to paint the trim a contrasting or complementary shade to the main paint color.
