The Best Patio Upgrades for Summer

Get the most out of summer fun by updating your backyard in the spring. There are a number of small enhancements for the patio, pool and deck that make a big impact when gathering with family and friends on those warm summer nights. You do your best to make every room of your home reflect your personal sense of style, right? The way we see it, the backyard and patio should be equally personal extensions of the home. Maximize fun and style potential with these upgrades.

- For lounging by the pool… In addition to investing in new poolside furniture and umbrellas, resurfacing or resealing the pool deck can give the space a striking new look. Consider pavers or flat stones and make sure that whatever material you choose doesn't become too slippery when wet.

- For those truly toasty days… You should be able to enjoy your backyard even when the weather is too hot to handle. For more protection from the sun (and a beautiful structural addition to the backyard), opt for a custom-designed wooden pergola. Part of the beauty of the pergola is its friendliness to climbing vines—nature's awnings.

- For parties and get-togethers… When it's time for a barbecue or cookout, make the cooking a stylish breeze with a new outdoor kitchen area built right into your patio. These have become increasingly popular as homeowners look for ways to make outdoor spaces more directly functional.
