If you have a patio space that needs some extra seating, consider built in seating made out of natural stone. This type of seating is not made entirely of stone. It is framed with wood and the exterior is finished with natural stone. Natural stone seating is a great way to create extra seating that will not be harmed by the natural elements.
This project is a great way to create a custom look. It also looks amazing in an outdoor space. The seating fits in well with your patio space and has the added benefit of being custom just for your home.
As outdoor kitchens become more popular, people are realizing they need more seating to entertain in these outdoor spaces. By creating an outdoor kitchen with ample entertaining space is adding an extension of living space to your home. Outdoor areas are the best place to entertain, given the weather permits. It is worry free. There is no need to worry about spilling drinks or creating a mess. Naturally this will create a more relaxed atmosphere if you can let go of the fear of stains!
This type of space is also nice for children and their parents too. Children can run around while the meal is being prepared and then get as messy as they want. Parents can relax further knowing their children are busy playing outdoors.
The stone used for this type of seating can be any of a wide variety of natural stone. We are happy to help you select the best for your home. When selecting the material to use, keep in mind that you want the stone to be comfortable to sit on. Select stone with smooth surfaces and edges. Having a smooth stone makes the seating more inviting. Feel free to add outdoor cushions that can easily be taken inside after use.
Build the patio custom for the yard and your family’s needs. Then simply create the stone built in seats around that. These types of seating or benches look really great when used in a round or semicircle application.
