Concrete offers a beautiful and versatile option for your patio floor, but it can also be used to create stunning patio furnishings. Whether you want a modern decor theme or something more vintage-inspired, there are lots of different options for decorating your concrete patio with concrete furnishings. Here are just a few options you can choose from to create added visual interest for your space.

Concrete Fire Pits

A fire pit is a multinational addition to your outdoor space. Not only is the beauty of a roaring fire accented by a sleek concrete fire pit, but this furnishing also lets you use your outdoor space in colder weather. Concrete is a great material for building a fire pit because of its fire-resistant properties, helping to keep your patio area warm and safe. Your contractor can build a custom fire pit for you so you don't have to worry about the messy mixing and pouring of concrete as part of a DIY project. Talk to your contractor about the look you want; fir pits can be as simple as a small square or round frame in your back yard. You can also choose from more complex designs, such as heart-shaped fire pits or a fire pit and dining table combination.

Concrete Dining Tables

Concrete dining tables offer a sleek, weather-resistant way to eat al fresco or entertain guests at a backyard barbecue. You can choose from a small bistro table for cozy gatherings, or you may opt for a large rectangular table that creates the look of a dining room on your patio. Add beautiful wicker chairs with UV-resistant cushions to soften the look of your concrete table. For birthday parties and other festive events, you can add a tablecloth to your concrete table, or you can leave it uncovered to let its natural beauty show through.

Concrete Pool Tables

Concrete pool tables let you enjoy playing a game of pool at your backyard parties. These tables are typically made from poured concrete and feature a waterproof playing surface and pockets. This addition to your patio is a great option if you don't have enough room inside your home for a pool table or if you do a lot of entertaining. Ask your contractor about different options for creating this type of table. You may want to consider having your contractor build an optional cover that lets you use the pool table as an outdoor dining table as well.

Concrete patio furniture is available in a range of different styles. Whether you choose one of these options or you consider concrete chairs, benches or picnic tables, concrete delivers durability and beauty to your space. Talk to your contractor (like Hofmann Concrete Construction LLC) about which types of concrete furniture might work best with your patio.
