  • We're going to show you some simple updates that can transform your backyard into a magical

  • gathering spot.

  • Patios are an outdoor extension of your home. It's the place where you unwind. Life doesn't

  • get better than this. But all patios are not created equal. Your outdoor oasis may just

  • need a boost, a little updating.

  • Here are four updates that will take your Patio from "ow" to "wow."

  • The Floor. Ok, this concrete slab isn't going to win a "gorgeous award." But it's a great

  • foundation to build on. You could stain the floor. Or my favorite way to totally personalize

  • this patio is to paint a pattern on the concrete. How cool is that?

  • With a swanky, totally unique floor, you can't be lounging on these chairs. Let's update

  • the patio furniture with this five piece Bistro set. Add some wine and cheese and the dream

  • is being lived.

  • We are outside, so let's include some plants in our party patio. They add color, texture

  • and help soften the edges of this outdoor room. You can hang them, put them around the

  • perimeter and even add a small tree or palm for a little privacy.

  • You'll probably spend most of your patio time when the sun goes "nighty night." You'll need

  • lights, not only to create a soothing atmosphere, but for safety reasons as well. Torch lights

  • give off a natural glow while string lights add a festival feel to your patio. Uplighting

  • the surrounding trees and plants can be dramatic. And if you don't want to deal with electric

  • and wires, use solar lights and in the long run, save money.

  • There you go. You can do one, two or all four of these updates and they won't break the

  • bank. Now start creating some memories.
