Life isn’t all about competition, but it’s perfectly reasonable to want to have the best patio in your neighborhood. After all, when it comes to your home, why wouldn’t you want the best of the best? With so many different options to upgrade your patio, it’s important to stick to the basics. Here are four tips on how to create a stunning patio.

Patio Doors

Sliding patio doors are one of, if not the most popular component of every patio. These pieces give you a full view of your lawn and patio. A quality door acts as an image of your backyard, providing an almost seamless transition to the outdoors. Similar to sliding doors, French doors make a big statement. While they don’t provide the same level of a natural transition, these doors take on a more stylistic approach to your backyard. Capable of upgrading any space, these doorways pop and bring your patio together.


Often the unsung hero of your house, quality vinyl windows will be a topic of discussion among family and other guests. Similar to your doors, your windows can be seen as a picture on the wall. In that picture lies your outdoor living space, including your patio. Looking from the outside in, you can see your indoor living space. The frame makes up the rest of the picture, so it’s important to choose the right frame for your house. For example, vinyl windows are resistant and strong when it comes to weather and other outdoor forces. A fiberglass frame is perfect for longevity, resisting the elements such as rotting and warping. Aluminum windows are strong and hold color, making them a great choice for years to come.


Awnings are the cherry on top of your outdoor space. These serve to make your doors and windows even more appealing. Not only do they serve the practical purpose of keeping you cool, but they also serve to be aesthetically pleasing. A retractable awning is perfect for those who want to control how much sun they get, while opting for a custom canopy will bring your patio to the next level.

Given how great patios are, it should come as no surprise that the deck and patio construction industry is worth $934.3 million in 2023, according to IBISWorld.
