Outdoor Living: Preparing Your Patio for Spring Entertaining



With the arrival of spring, our thoughts turn to outdoor entertaining. A well-prepared patio can be the heart of your home during this season, offering a perfect space for relaxation and social gatherings. At Taylor Exteriors and Construction, we understand the joy of outdoor living. Let's explore how you can prepare your patio for spring entertaining, complemented by our quality offerings like ProVia doors, which seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor spaces.

1. Patio Cleaning and Maintenance:

Start with a thorough cleaning. Power wash the patio surface to remove dirt and grime. Check for any needed repairs on the stonework or wood, and consider resealing surfaces for added protection.

2. Update Your Outdoor Furniture:

Evaluate your outdoor furniture. Is it comfortable and inviting? Consider updating cushions or adding new pieces that encourage lounging and conversation. Furniture made from durable materials can withstand spring weather while adding style to your space.

3. Create Ambiance with Lighting:

The right lighting can transform your patio into an evening retreat. String lights, solar-powered lanterns, or LED candles create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Don’t forget pathway lights for safety and convenience.

4. Incorporate a Fire Feature:

A fire pit or outdoor fireplace not only provides warmth on cooler evenings but also creates a central gathering spot. It’s perfect for extending your entertaining into the night.

5. Add Color with Plants and Flowers:

Bring your patio to life with potted plants and hanging baskets. Choose spring flowers and greenery to add color and freshness. Plants can also offer natural privacy screening.

6. Set Up Outdoor Cooking and Dining:

If you enjoy cooking and dining al fresco, consider setting up an outdoor kitchen or grill station. Ensure your dining area is comfortable and spacious, inviting guests to linger over meals.

7. Enhance with Accessories:

Final touches like outdoor rugs, throw pillows, and decorative items can tie your patio space together. Choose weather-resistant fabrics and materials to ensure longevity.

8. Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Transition:

Consider the transition from indoors to outdoors. ProVia doors, known for their beauty and durability, can enhance this flow, creating a seamless connection between your home’s interior and your outdoor living space.


Preparing your patio for spring entertaining can be a delightful process. With a little effort, you can create an outdoor oasis that reflects your personal style and is ready for any gathering.
