Like any large city, the greater Kansas City area has many homes with smaller backyards. Fortunately, concrete patio design can be developed in such as way as to make the most of these smaller spaces. Concrete can be made to look like stone, slate or marble, and it can be polished or given the appearance of large or small bricks. Pre-cut pavers are also an excellent choice for a patio, and homeowners can enjoy the sensation of an Italian Palazzo or woodsy retreat in their own backyard. A good concrete company can give suggestions and offer examples of their work.
Shade structures were once all made from canvas. However, today there are many colourful acrylic fibres that are woven together to make shade cloths. The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.
There's also Levolor's exclusive BackStacker feature that keeps sometimes-unruly vertical vanes neatly and discretely stacked when open. Another consideration is insulation. Glass patio doors offer a lot of surface area for cold air to get in, and investing in either vertical cellular shades or heavy insulated curtains is an easy way to save on your heating bill.
A Kansas City company that specializes in concrete patio design will be able to offer clients in this thriving central Midwestern area a large selection of ideas, materials and prices for their patios. From retaining walls to polished flooring, concrete is no longer the material used strictly for garage floors and driveways. It is now a staple for many homeowners and businesses, and a company will be able to provide estimates and even pictures of previous work. Fountains, pavers, and poured concrete can be used to emphasize any garden spot beautifully, and the experts can help provide an outdoor transformation.
A less expensive way to dress up your outdoor patio for the winter months is with grapevine. You can buy it at your local florist or art supply store. Maintenance-free, grapevine can be threaded through any lattice work you might have outside or you can use white LED lights and intertwine them with the grapevines. Add sprigs of holly, juniper or boxwood to make your patio even more festive!
