Top 5 Patio Enclosure Trends of 2017, Blairsville, Georgia

Updating your patio enclosure is a great way to improve the appeal of your home and make outdoor living that much more convenient. If you need ideas to help with your renovations, look no further than this year's top trends. The year of 2017 saw a focus on comfort and simple aesthetics, which will make your screened-in porch a great place to relax.

2017 Patio Trends

1. Upgrade Your Furniture

Patio EnclosureIn the past, furniture meant for outdoor use was all wire and plastic, but this year has seen a change. Quality wood and comfortable pillows have made their way onto the porch to create a welcoming place to kick back and relax with friends and family.

2. Salvage Items

If you’re looking for décor for your patio enclosure, visit your local vintage shop. Old furniture, signs, hardware, and architectural pieces that help create visual interest were highly sought-after this year. 

3. Fire Pits

To bring light and warmth to an unroofed patio, a fire pit is the perfect choice. It also serves as a natural gathering place during parties and get-togethers.

4. Concrete Stamping

In 2017, homeowners moved away from bright materials to achieve a simpler, more rustic aesthetic. One way to achieve this look is with concrete stamping, which adds visual interest to an inexpensive flooring material.

5. Colors & Stains

Just as stamps improve concrete's visual texture, a little dye in the mixture will match your cement floor to any color scheme. Color can be added to the cement before it's poured, or it can be applied as a stain afterward.

With a few simple touches like the ones above, you can create a trendy, yet comfortable patio enclosure for you and your family to enjoy. Start planning your renovation today to make the most of your home and patio.
