If you love all things “outdoor living,” yet you have a small porch or patio, are you thinking about an upgrade? An expansion, perhaps? What about adding a roof over part of your patio for reliable shade? An outdoor kitchen? An outdoor fireplace? This stunning, multi-faceted project we designed and built for our clients in Tarrant County, TX, is sure to provide inspiration.
Interior of new covered patio by Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake
At Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake, we focus on increasing the outdoor living enjoyment potential at your Dallas or Southlake area home. The more your outdoor spaces are customized to meet your needs, the greater the enjoyment potential those spaces offer you. That’s exactly what these Tarrant County homeowners were searching for when they called us in to improve their patio area.
These homeowners had a builder-grade covered patio at the back of their home, but it wasn’t large enough for them to do very much with. They only had room for a grill, a couple of chairs and a small table. They were reluctant to have people over for outdoor meals and such because there just wasn’t room on the patio. Even though the patio had a roof cover, during certain times of day the roof didn’t even shade the area. Our clients wanted more room to move around and versatility in their outdoor living space. A lot more!
All great covered patios feature a stunning patio surface. We replaced the original patio with one considerably larger and finished it with an attractive stain-and-stamp surface. For this project we used a wooden deck stamp pattern with maple wood stain color and a charcoal release for definition. The effect is that of an old wooden floor that has been beautifully restored and preserved.
The patio cover consists of a hip roof matching the home’s roof in style and color. We used pine tongue-and-groove boards for the interior ceiling and stained the ceiling in dark walnut. For the homeowners’ comfort and convenience, we installed ceiling fans and recessed canned lighting overhead. We painted the patio cover’s trim and posts in a chocolate color to match the trim on the house.
We’re Also Your Tarrant County Hardscapes Designer-Installer
You don’t need to search for anyone else to design and build your vertical hardscapes. Beautiful hardscapes are among our specialties at Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake. The hardscapes we designed and installed in this project include an outdoor fireplace, U-shaped outdoor kitchen, and stone privacy wall—all custom-designed for this home.
Versatile U-shaped kitchen
We used beautiful Oklahoma chopped stone throughout—for the gas-burning fireplace, kitchen area, privacy wall and columns. The counters, hearth and mantel are made of smooth, grey Lueders stone. Kitchen amenities include a Blaze grill with full-access drawers, a fridge and a beer cooler. The large TV screen mounted over the fireplace tells us this covered patio will see plenty of home-team celebrations.
A Total Outdoor Living Package … and More
In addition to creating this amazing outdoor living space for relaxing, cooking, dining and entertaining, we added a flagstone and gravel path leading around the patio. The homeowner plans to add a putting green on the other side of the yard. We guess that makes this covered patio the 19th hole!
This stunning outdoor living combination project is an example of the way we create perfect outdoor living spaces for our clients to enjoy the outdoors. This setting is just bursting with outdoor living enjoyment potential!
