Patio Design Ideas to Level Up your Summer Lifestyle

It’s patio season along the Front Range, and nothing beats grilling and chilling with friends and family in the luxurious comfort of your backyard. While outdoor spaces often create a shared and lively atmosphere, they can also be a sanctuary where we come to find our peace. No matter your goals, as you prep your patio for the summer consider these tips on how Gravina’s can help you rethink and reshape your backyard oasis into your own personal sanctuary. 

Whether the area you’re working with is small or large, you’ll find plenty of fantastic options out there for personalization! Looking to luxuriate your space? Bi-folding glass doors are an elegant way to create more usable square footage with what you already have! Ranging from three to ten easy-to-operate panels made of customizable wood, we recommend Kolbe’s folding glass doors to conveniently marry the indoors and outdoors by extending your living room directly into your patio area. This addition of even more natural light can be enough to elevate the vibe and help you find your desired peace. 

Enclosed and partially-enclosed patios provide a secluded spot to read or share a quiet conversation with a friend. In these moments when you wrap yourself inside your surroundings, it’s crucial that your space actually makes you feel good. That’s why we suggest the smooth cedar finish of LP Smartside Panel and Vertical Siding to give your walls an interior-like appeal. While the engineered wood technology provides a clean and elegant look, Smartside designs offer the secluded intimacy and calm you deserve to truly relax and destress from the day. 


Siding is more than just your patio’s backdrop — it’s a vital design component that adds stylish contrast and energy. While Colorado is a dry climate, you can easily create your own beach getaway with Pelican Bay One siding. Alside’s Traditional Shakes and Cape Cod Shingles are handcrafted to bring the look of natural cedar shake to your home and are ideal for accentuating your home’s architecture. Want a more subtle addition that you can still admire from your lawn chair? Odyssey’s Plus Premium Vinyl Siding offers the visual interest of Dutch lap and comes in 24 popular splashes of color — plus a full range of matching trim.

With summer approaching faster than ever, now is a perfect time to consider updating the most important seasonal spaces on your property. Investing in new siding or bi-folding doors from Gravina’s can boost curb appeal where it counts — all while ensuring that you and your guests get the most possible enjoyment out of your yard.
