Patios are a commonly desired renovation for many homeowners that enjoy entertaining guests. However, there are so many options for patio renovations that it may be challenging to choose which one is right for you. We’re here to evaluate different patio renovations and help you decide which one is worthwhile based on your personal preferences.

Large patio or small patio?

The size of your patio should be cohesive with the size of your yard. A large patio in a small yard will look disproportionate. Therefore, your patio should be an appropriate ratio to the size of your yard to maximize space.

Outdoor Fence:

If privacy is important to you, you may want to consider adding a fence around your yard to prevent others from looking in. You and your guests can enjoy your outdoor space in privacy. If privacy isn’t that much of a concern to you, consider spending the money on a different patio renovation.

Outdoor Kitchen:

An outdoor kitchen can be a valuable addition to a patio for someone who enjoys cooking for their guests. However, it can be a very pricey patio renovation, and it is unlikely to increase the value of your property. Therefore, deciding to add an outdoor kitchen should ultimately be based on whether or not it will be used regularly instead of increasing the value of your home.


A pergola is an outdoor structure that provides a light shade to your patio. These resort-style structures will be a great addition to those hot Tallahassee summers. If you have a pool, they are very comfortable as a poolside decoration to sit under while you’re enjoying the sun. However, pergolas require some maintenance. They need to be cleaned and repainted often to avoid them from looking unkempt.

Fire Pits:

It might not snow in Tallahassee, but it does get pretty cold during the winter months. A fire pit can be a great addition to take advantage of your outdoor space that might not have received use during the colder months otherwise. However, it’s a seasonal patio renovation and may not get as much use during the warmer months.

Outdoor Lighting:

If you’re expecting to use your outdoor space after dark, you may want to consider adding in lights. However, if you use your pool and outdoor space during the day instead, spending the money on a different renovation might be a better option.
