Here at Archadeck, we are well-known for taking a blank slate of a backyard, or an existing space, and adding beauty and functionality through our custom outdoor living space designs. This project, in particular, showcases how we not only changed the look of this area but also enhanced the way the space can now be used.
Our most recent project takes us to Coppell, TX, where Archadeck of NE Dallas Southlake transformed this existing poolside patio.
As you can see from the before image, these homeowners have a lovely pool and hot tub off the back of their home. The back door that was used to access this area had a minimal patio area that offered no shade or protection from inclement weather or the sun on warm days.
We added a new covered patio off the back of the home. The patio cover blends seamlessly with the existing home and into the existing pool surround with the always been there appeal Archadeck is so good at achieving. The covered patio also features a charming cedar pergola on one end, giving the homeowners a place for their grill, along with a revved-up aesthetic!
Let’s take a look at each facet of this combination outdoor living space design:
The project began with the installation of a new stain and stamp patio. We used a Flagstone Stamp in Natural Brown.
Notice how we added an eye-catching 12-inch border in Walnut to add definition to the patio and ease the transition of the new patio into the existing aggregate patio present in the pool surround.
The Patio Cover
The covered patio features a gable/shed combination roof, this was chosen to emulate the home’s existing roof and to ensure water diverted properly from the roofline. The cedar posts are set atop columns built from Oklahoma chopped stone and gray Lueders stone tops. The stone coping was chosen to mimic that present within the pool surround, making the new addition appear original to the home and pool area.
On the interior of the patio cover, we used a beautiful pine tongue and groove ceiling. The ceiling is stained in dark Walnut to give it a rustic appeal. We also stained the cedar posts in extra dark Walnut. We also included all the creature comforts you would expect in one of our custom designs… these include two ceiling fans, recessed can lighting and six speakers.
The pergola is also built using Cedar and the design is beefier than a traditional, run-of-the-mill pergola. We stained the pergola in dark Walnut to match the posts used on the patio cover.
This stunning pergola adds an airy element to the entire space. From the way it plays with the sunlight adding drama to the patio itself, to the functionality of having a place for outdoor grilling!
Exterior Finish Details
Last but not least, Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake made sure all the exterior finish details were matched to the home. This includes painting the trim to match the house and the use of lighter colors. The homeowner are just over the moon about their new shade-loving poolside oasis. The project is proof of how we can take an existing backyard from zero to amazing with a custom design.
