When you talk about a walkout basement patio, you cannot separate the discussion from the definition of the basement type. One thing you must know is that it is not the same as the traditional one.
We can simply describe a walkout basement as the one that comes with a door feature. Sometimes, windows are often included in the design too.

1. Classic Roofless Walkout Basement Patio with Fire Pit and Grilling Station
The picture that you see above shows a traditional walkout basement patio, which floor material is concrete slabs arranged in such a way to create a beautiful look with a natural touch from the grass. We decided to give you this photo first because it clearly shows how a walkout basement looks like.
As you can see, two glass doors connect the patio and the basement area inside the house. Another thing you must notice is the slope of the ground. It is an essential condition that allows you to build a walkout basement in your place.
The type of this patio is roofless. As you can see, there is no roof covering it.
Two main features exist in this patio design. Those are the seating area with a fire pit in the center and a grilling station you can see at the back.
With such features, we can conclude that there are at least two main functions obtainable from this patio design. The first is an outdoor gathering place, and the second is a spot for grilling and barbequing, which is better to do outside the house like this.
2. Mid-Size Modern Concrete Walkout Basement Patio with Grill Station and Outdoor Dining Table Set
From this next idea, you will know that a walkout basement patio can be an interesting detail in a small modern backyard too. As shown in the picture, the size of this outdoor element is not that big.
There are two main features available here. The first is the stainless-steel grilling station, and the second is the outdoor dining table set that comes with an umbrella in the design.
From the two main features, the patio function that the homeowner wants more seems to be an alternative place for enjoying meals, including also when there is a special occasion hosted in the house.
An exciting thing that we found from this design is that a walkout basement patio can provide a place for the occupants of the house to spend time outside comfortably even if the houses in the neighborhood are quite tight from one another. With it also, the occupants do not have to spend all the time inside the house, and it is fun.
Even if the size of the patio is not too big, it doesn’t matter. The most important fact is that it adds extra space in the home design, which is particularly beneficial for a small house, as shown in the picture.
3. Transitional Walkout Basement Patio with Outdoor Living Area
Another most common idea is to build an outdoor living area in the walkout basement patio. For a small house, it creates a chance to provide a living room, which is quite impossible to build inside the home because it will only take too much space.
However, if the house is not that small, the addition of an outdoor living area in a patio is still beneficial. With it, you can get more choices to have quality time with family, friends, or even your guests.
You can take a look at the picture above if you need an example. This roofless walkout basement patio is completed with a set of seating furniture complete with a table.
If you are interested in the idea, you must pay attention to the type of furniture that you are about to place in the patio. Because the living area does not have any roof or cover, you must be sure that the furniture is designed especially for the outdoor environment so it can deal with any weather-related conditions.
The same thing is also applied to the cushions and pillows if you want to place them on the seats. It would be nice if the cover is from a material designed for outdoor use.
4. Beautiful Contemporary Walkout Basement Patio with Fountain
Sometimes, when designing a walkout basement patio, you should not always pay attention to the extra function you want to add. If you wish, you can only focus on the beautiful appearance that can also improve the home exterior look to be better.
The picture above is an excellent example that we found. The first thing that cached our attention the most from this photo is none other, but how beautiful this patio design is.
The color of everything included in it seems to coordinate with one another to create a gorgeous look. However, the center of attention in the design is the water fountain with a small pond as the lower part.
5. Spacious Transitional Walkout Basement Patio with Outdoor Living and Large Fountain Feature
This next idea also has the same thing when we talk about the fountain as a water feature in a walkout basement patio design. The difference is that it is a more spacious place so that the water feature used here has a larger size too.
Adding something like this can create a focal point to arrest the most attention. It applies no matter whether the feature is seen from the patio area or the basement interior.
Particularly for the outdoor living area in this patio design, the addition of the water feature is not only about visual. It can be something that builds a relaxing atmosphere in the area because of the water’s sound.
Can you imagine spending time in the outdoor living room while listening to the water sound? Drinking a cup of coffee or tea in there when you need to feel relaxed seems to be a good idea, right?
6. Contemporary Sunken-Style Walkout Basement Patio
As we already told you earlier, most of the time, a walkout basement is possible to build only when your house stands on a slope. It often leads to the fact that it is not always easy to create a patio connected directly to the basement entrance.
An alternative design is available in the picture above. At a glance, there is nothing special about this patio design.
However, you will find out that the lower patio is connected to the upper ones by stairs when you see the other view. A design like this is suitable to follow when you want the patio to be quite spacious, but it is impossible to build it on a level only.
An interesting thing that you may find from this kind of patio design is that you can apply different functions for each level. Take a look at the photos above to make it clear.
At the lowest level, there is only a chair, and it means that the function is here is simply for seating. On the upper level, there is a set of outdoor dining table that makes the patio an alternative place for eating outside the house.
7. Walkout Basement Patio with Alternative Dining Table
It seems that a set of outdoor dining table with the chairs are one favorite option to place in the walkout basement patio idea other than regular outdoor seats. In this next idea, both of these features exist.
Take a look at the photo above. In the roofless area of the patio, there is a set of dining table that has a grill feature in the center. The decision to place this item in the uncovered area is thoughtful, considering the smoke resulting from grilling activities.
Not far from the dining table area, there is another seating set with a table located under the deck. This one seems to be more useful as a place for gathering, such as when you have friends or family who come for a visit.
Because of the green view, a place like this can also be a good reading spot. To create a romantic atmosphere, you can install bulb strings under the deck so that the seating area can get a different ambiance at night.
8. Traditional Walkout Basement Patio with Seats and Stunning Landscape
If you have a house built on a spacious land, you can pair the walkout basement patio with a stunning landscape design to make your home exterior even more fascinating. An excellent example that we want to show you exists in the photo above.
In this traditional patio, you can see two different sitting areas. The first is under the room, and the other is in the roofless area near the round fire pit.
As we already told you before, the thing that arrests our attention the most from this idea is how the patio design is paired nicely with the landscape design. You can see the picture above to know the details.
The choice of boulders and stones, including those used for creating the stairs, is fantastic. Those details seem to be a bridge that connects the patio and the grassy land next to it. You can also consider them as a transition point if you want to.
9. Walkout Basement Patio Connected to Swimming Pool
Sometimes, a walkout basement patio also becomes a single part with a swimming pool in the backyard. An idea like this is available in the picture of a contemporary residence above.
The house that you see here is quite large, as well as the land. That is why it is possible to directly connect the patio to the swimming pool at the back.
For the patio and the swimming pool deck material, the one you see in the idea above is precisely the same. However, you can make everything even more interesting by choosing a different material.
10. Gorgeous Traditional Walkout Basement Patio with Dining Table Set
We love this photo because the walkout basement patio gets a cozy atmosphere from the light inside the house. It makes the dining table a perfect place for a romantic outdoor dinner.
Not so fact from the walkout basement patio, there is another one connected by stairs. It looks more suitable for enjoying good weather outside the house or a quality time while enjoying the natural views of the surroundings.
Another good inspiration also exists in this picture is the color scheme of the patio that fits the exterior of the house excellently. Even the furniture seems to be carefully selected to match the home design.
11. Small Sunken-Style Walkout Basement Patio with Cedar Trellis
Here is another example of a sunken patio that connects directly to the entrance of a walkout basement. Despite the small size, the design of this exterior element looks fabulous.
The main reason behind this looks is none other, but the custom cedar trellis covering the walls surrounding the patio. This simple and quite affordable idea can give a significant enhancement to a sunken patio design like this.
For creating a coordinating look, you can choose a wooden trellis with a similar appearance with the furniture you place in the patio. As an example, you can see the dining table set in the picture has a similar tone with the cedar trellis.
12. Cozy Traditional Walkout Basement Covered Patio with Complete Features
When you have a rather extended and spacious walkout basement patio, you can think about adding complete features so that you can get more functions in your home exterior design. If you need an example, the picture above is a good one.
This patio is located under a roof extension that makes it very possible to add any features in there effortlessly. The first feature that we can see from the picture is an outdoor living room with a fireplace for both ambiance and warmth.
The next feature is a dining area with quite a large table and eight chairs. The last is the small kitchen in the corner.
Let’s say, with such complete features like these; it will never be a problem even if you do not have any living room, dining room, or kitchen inside the house. When you already have all the functions located in the patio, you can use the space in the place for something else.
13. Small and Trendy Contemporary Covered Walkout Basement Patio
Here is another fabulous idea that we fund. FYI, we love everything that we all can see in this contemporary patio picture.
This exterior element is not spacious. However, the designer can make it looks gorgeous by adding different details in the design, including the woven fence, the beams, and the shade that creates a calm atmosphere while at the same time does not entirely block the sunlight.
The idea of building a green garden here is also amazing. Even if the patio is rather small, the existence of plants here gives a refreshing effect that makes everyone love to spend time there.
14. Trendy and Spacious Contemporary Walkout Basement Patio with Outdoor Living and TV
Here is another sunken patio design that we want you to see. Its design is not only interesting because it is connected directly to the walkout basement of the house. It is also because of all features placed there.
All the main features of the patio are visible in this picture. The most significant one is none other but the vertical garden that boosts the natural and refreshing atmosphere around the area. It gets even better because, at the center, there is a water feature that produces the relaxing gurgling sound.
The next feature is the seating area. It combines an integrated L-shaped concrete bench with some outdoor furniture. In the center, there is a fireplace table for ambiance.
The last but not least feature is the flat screen on the wall. It is possible to watch some favorite shows or other TV programs with people close to you.
Another thing you should not miss is that this patio still has a spacious space on one side. You can flexibly use it for many different purposes.
15. Gorgeous Modern Walkout Basement Patio with Living Room Features
The thing that we love the most from this small walkout basement patio is how the lighting strongly builds the cozy atmosphere. It also makes the place gorgeous.
From all the items included in the design, it is evident that this sunken patio’s function is more like an outdoor living room. There are seats with fabulous red cushions and a fireplace with a wall-mounted flat-screen above it.
Another thing that you should not miss from the patio design is the water feature at one corner. A detail like this is always suitable to put in an outdoor area like this.
16. Sunken Covered Walkout Basement Patio with Hot Tub
A walkout basement patio is functional, not only as an outdoor living, a kitchen, or a dining room. You can also build something else in the patio, such as the sunken hot tub that you see in the picture.
The fact that the patio is located in a quite low ground is excellent here. It makes it possible to build a wall surround to increase the privacy value in the hot tub area. This way, you should not be afraid of watching eyes whenever you are in the tub alone or with someone else.
The design of this patio is even better because there is a roof covering it. It gives a better convenience white at the same time, enhancing the privacy value even better.
17. Walkout Basement Patio with Pond
Here is another walkout basement patio that looks amazing because of the landscape design paired with it. In this case, the element chosen as a match for the patio is a pond that amazingly comes with a waterfall, as shown in the picture.
Something like this is excellent to choose when you have vast land, and you love everything related to water. If you want to, you can include some different types of fish and plants in the pond to make it looks more natural.
18. Simple yet Amazing Transitional Walkout Basement Patio
We do love how this transitional house looks. However, if we must talk particularly about the walkout basement patio, indeed, there are several details that we like too.
The first is about how simple this outdoor element looks. As you can see, it has a weathered wood floor that matches the reclaimed brick walls.
There is only a custom L-shape seat located in this patio. The rest of the area is left empty.
An empty look like this does not mean that the patio is boring. FYI, it is beneficial instead because the emptiness makes it possible for you to use the area depending on your need.
For example, if you need to host a barbeque party, you just need to arrange the patio in such a way. You can add a dining table, some chairs, and a grilling station for this need.
19. Walkout Basement Patio and Garden
This tiny walkout basement patio is built in sunken style because of the slope characteristic of the land. Although it is small, it does not look boring.
The homeowner arranges different types of green plants to decorate the patio. It looks like the plants are also the collection of the homeowner, considering the various types.
The pots used to plant each of the greens are just regular black pots. However, the way the homeowner arrange the plants in the patio area creates a unique view. Besides, the green colors also refresh the site and avoid it from looking deserted.

You can also add color to the design of your sunken walkout basement patio by using tiles. The picture of a Mediterranean patio here shows an excellent example.
We love every detail available in the design, particularly the blue tiles. It adds colors to the patio design and creates a stunning look.
The choice of wall paint here matches the wooden materials from the chairs, bench, and stairs. It even goes well with the blue tiles.
The hanging flowery plants we all can see in the design can be an excellent alternative to a vertical garden. The water fountain fixtures seem to prove that a simple choice can still make a difference. FYI, it is also an excellent selection to build a water feature in a small walkout basement patio.
