Three Ways to Perk Up your Patio

Is your patio looking tired? Grey Bruce Patio has a few inspiring solutions for your worn out patio. Without having to dig deep into your pocket book you can bring life back into your outdoor space. Add style, dimension and versatility by making small changes and updates. Sometimes all it takes is bold new colours, strategic landscaping and adding a little more conversation.


This season, its all about bold and vibrant colours. Pair a striped navy outdoor rug, with bold yellow pillows and a white throw. Or channel a Mediterranean island and update your outdoor furniture with teal, and white pillows and covers. Incorporate interesting accent pieces like colourful lanterns can add dimension and conversation to your evenings. Carry your colours indoors and add a splash of vibrancy to your porch space. A great way to invite the outdoors in, and providing a protected retreat for your family and guests is with a Sunspace Screen Room or Sunroom. Colour is your friend, mix and match bold patterns and bring out your personal style to your outdoor space!

Fire Pits

Fire pits have come a long way from your scout master style teepee and rocks. Growing in popularity and safety are contemporary Fire Pits. No matter where you shop, there are a wide array of styles, motifs and sizes. From Bowl Shaped Fire Pits with mesh covers, to full Fire Tables that can be fuelled by gas. Frame your fire pit with a topless Contemporary Glass Railing System, and take in the whole view while roasting your marshmallows. Give your patio a focal point and dimension, while adding warm conversation to your evenings under the stars!


Strategic landscaping can add a punch of zest to your outdoor patio. Add depth and colour while showing off your green thumb, with the use of ornate planters and running with your theme. Incorporate your bold punches of colour in your landscaping and compliment those new outdoor throws and pillows! Incorporate existing trees and shrubbery into your design, by stringing lights, hanging lanterns or simply frame your seating. Use your garden and landscape to tell your story, while expressing your personal style and flair.
