Patios are a great addition to any home but are especially great when you like to make the most of the outdoors, using your garden to relax, or dine and have fun. There are a huge range of patio designs available based on customer requirement and whether it is a small or big patio, a good designer can use one to really bring your outdoor space to life.
To begin with you need to choose the positioning for the new patio and from there decide on the size. A paved area at the bottom of the garden can create a private retreat for relaxing, whereas an area leading off from the kitchen or living area can be good for entertaining and al fresco dining when the weather allows.
Do not forget to consider the features you wish to incorporate into your patio design. Options include a barbeque, spa tub a bar, or even a water feature.
The materials selected will ultimately dictate the look and finish of the space, so choose carefully! Look at what is available from your local supplier – paving can come in many different stones or finishes, all with different looks and characteristics.
Enhance your patio with the lighting, planters and furniture of your choice, all helping to create a magical outdoor space.
Furniture is widely available in materials such as wicker, iron, aluminium and wood that is well suited to surviving outdoor use. Select from a range of loungers, sofas, tables, benches and chairs, which can all help create a perfect outdoor room.
To create a colourful and pleasant outlook add the trees, flowers, shrubs or plants of your choice, with tubs or planters being perfect for use on the paving, and others planted in beds around it. Awnings, parasols and pergolas can create shade and there are heaters on the market to make your outdoor area enjoyable throughout the unpredictable UK year.
