Perhaps you have realized there is more to life than work and gathering around a TV at the end of the day. A custom-built, outdoor living area allows you to entertain friends, spend time with your family or just unwind after a long day.

Our customers all agree, a custom built outdoor living area brings people together. With the addition of a patio cover or pergola, your backyard and landscape can be transformed into a scenic extension of your residence or even a luxurious entertainment area. Our services have made possible the creation of outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, shady playgrounds, spas, arts studios, reading havens and living rooms.

One area of the home to come the furthest in terms of design over the years is the outdoor living space. These were once just spaces to place a patio furniture set and maybe a grill. But these days, people are including televisions, entire kitchens (including the kitchen sink) and dining areas fit for a restaurant.

Many outdoor living spaces have fire pits that are works of art, and sometimes even full fireplaces. So if you’re ready to update your outdoor living space in a big way, take a look at some of the inspiring images below. You may just find an idea for your next backyard remodel.

Backyard Makeovers

Is your backyard merely a place to slave over on those precious weekends? Are you tired of the endless mowing, trimming and clipping? Go maintenance free with a Sunset Construction custom outdoor living patio!

Homeowners have found that creating outdoor living areas beyond the walls of the home increases real estate market value while adding usable square footage.

Let us help you design and build the patio of your dreams so you can start enjoying outdoor living in your very own backyard.

Outdoor Kitchens

Nowadays, outdoor areas feature entire kitchens. This means there are spaces for small refrigerators, a variety of cooktops and sinks outdoors.

Outdoor kitchen appliances also tend to come in stainless steel, since that makes the appliances more resistant to the weather and other wear and tear. A common design aesthetic is to put stainless steel in stone or brick. The rustic stone and modern stainless steel combination creates interesting contrast. The stone also helps anchor the appliances in place and gives them a more outdoorsy look.

Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits

A classic mainstay of an outdoor space is the fire pit. Many of us have spent fond evenings relaxing around the fire as the heat of the day dissipates. However, fire pits have adopted an artistic bent over the years, looking more like “fire features” than traditional fire pits.

Another development is taking the traditional fire place from inside the home and placing it outside. These usually provide seating areas and a backdrop for TVs.

Outdoor Dining Areas:

Perhaps it wouldn’t be a full outdoor living space without bringing the entire dining room outside as well! Outdoor dining spaces these days are so detailed that they look like they belong indoors — that is, until you look closer and realize that everything is designed to stand up to the elements.

Some outdoor living areas exhibit long, full tables similar to what you would see in a dining room. Others make use of bar areas. Still others resemble kitchen islands. With so many options surrounding space and materials, the outdoor dining space area is truly customizable.

Getting the Perfect Outdoor Living Patio with Your Fresno Patio Contractor:

There is no better place to be on a summer evening than on your patio. When you dream of making home improvements do you imagine yourself enjoying warm summer evenings out by the pool in your own backyard? Our professionally designed outdoor living areas can make it a reality.

Patio Construction and Materials Used by Your Outdoor Living Fresno Patio Contractor:

A patio is typically made of concrete or stone slab pavers laid over a base layer of small stone chips, sharp sand, and cement mortar underneath it all. They can be fabricated in any design or pattern thatyou want. With some creativity and forethought, a patio can rival your living room for beauty, comfort, and enjoyment.

Patio Covers, Pergolas, and Awnings & Car Ports: Made from wood or embossed aluminum, our patio covers and car ports are attractive, versatile and durable.

Pergola Shade Structures: Transform a sunny spot into a welcoming retreat with a Lattice shade cover. These artfully designed shade covers provide the allure and ambiance you’ve dreamed of. Their unique "wood embossed" aluminum composition offers not just comfort, but complete peace of mind with little to no maintenance. If you are looking for a way to enhance the appeal and value of your home, take a closer look at aluminum Lattice Shade Structures by Sunset Construction.

There are some people who think only one patio is necessary. This is not necessarily true. If you have a large, well-tended yard, why not show it off with more than one patio? Sunset Construction and their design service, will be happy to construct patios that show off the beautiful views available from your own backyard.

Platforms connected with walkways of stone, concrete, pavers or brick add depth and charm to your property. You can even design each patio to have its own "theme" - for example, a pool patio, connected to a garden patio, connected to a brick patio outfitted for barbecuing or grilling, and so on. A professional Fresno Patio Contractor like Sunset Construction can help plan, design, and construct every one of these dream scenarios.

The View from Your Patio, Courtesy of Your Outdoor Living Fresno Patio Contractor:

When planning the design and construction of an outdoor living patio, you need to keep some very important facts in mind. First of all, where are guests going to look when they're standing on your patio? Secondly, how can you make that view more interesting? Your Fresno Patio Contractor will be able to assist with designs and ideas for improving the view from your new concrete patio.

If you are fortunate enough, this will be a simple answer for you. If your home is situated on a bluff, with a lush and romantic view from the back of your house, you hardly need to concern yourself with giving your guests something interesting to look at. It's much more likely that you'll have to work together with the Fresno Patio Contractor to come up with eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing arrangements to enhance the beauty of your outdoor living patio environment.

Consider the versatility of plants, as well as the many different techniques available to increase the beauty of concrete, brick, and stone. As an example, your Fresno Patio Contractor could create patterns in the layout of flagstone; stamp detailing onto the surface of concrete; or add carved bricks to your outdoor patio.

Installing brightly colored and hardy plants around the edges of your patio and walkways can give an otherwise ordinary patio a rich and elegant setting. If your guests are offered little more than the back of your own house to look at, perhaps you can do some designing of your own while your Fresno Patio Contractor is hard at work. Think of ways to add color or outdoor decoration, such as art work, sculptures, curtains, pictures etc. Also, hanging plants, wind chimes, and yard lighting can turn a drab outdoor patio into a fabulous patio.

Think about the level of sunlight available at the time you’ll likely be using the patio, and whether there will be an appropriate amount of shade. Your Fresno Patio Contractor will be happy to take a look at the arrangement of your yard and offer design suggestions for the best place to install your patio cover or pergola. You might not have considered the fact that there is more shade on one side of your house than the other, but the trained eye of your Fresno Patio Designer will be able to tell immediately. Keep in mind, too, that shade can be created using shade sails, awnings, lattice, arbors, pergolas, yard umbrellas, or tall shrubs and trees.

Sizing Your Patio to Fit Your Home with your Fresno Patio Contractor:

Have you ever visited a backyard party that felt cramped even though the lawn was a good size? Too often, builders will simply install an undersized patio because they are following the instructions of homeowners who are worried about overcrowding their yard. If you work closely with the Fresno Patio Contractor, you shouldn't have to worry about getting a patio where people will constantly be bumping elbows.

Once you know what you will be doing with your outdoor patio, it will be easy to determine the appropriate size for it. Will you be using it for barbecue parties on weekends, or will you keep it as a peaceful retreat for yourself and your family? Share these priorities with your Fresno Patio Contractor so that you both understand the final result of the patio construction that you are looking for.

One excellent way to 'predict' the perfect outdoor patio size is to purchase the furniture you intend to use. Place it in the yard just as you would like it once the patio has been installed. Your Fresno Patio Contractor can join you in "testing" the furniture, making sure there is adequate space between chairs and tables, and respect for every imaginary guest's "personal space". Then, taking a can of spray paint, you can mark out a generous border for your predicted outdoor patio right on the grass. It's better to have more patio than you need rather than not enough - and you will have made the job of your Fresno Patio Contractor much easier by pre-determining the exact size you want, rather than being indecisive during the build.
