The patio needs to be large enough to accommodate the correct size of table with room for chairs to be pulled out and for people to move around easily when others are seated. A guide is to allow 1m width for the table, 500mm width on either side of the table for each chair when not pushed under the table, 300mm between chairs down the side of the table, and 700mm width to pull each chair out and sit down comfortably.
The quantity of available space that you have lets you generate a layout so that you can plan your ultimate patio designs. This also gives you a clear-cut indication of the quantity of concrete that you want to lay. Same goes for the tiles you want have to pave. And for paving, it is best to get well recognized pavers.
"How will I use my patio?" Other than budget this is the most important question to ask yourself. If you plan on entertaining, you may consider seating walls around portions of your patio for overflow seating or an outdoor bar. If you have children you may want to invest in a fire pit area, either a portable or built-in. These are great to spend quality time with your children. Do you like to grill out? Perhaps adding a BBQ grill station or outdoor kitchen might be a nice addition. However you choose to use your patio, you need to convey these uses to your designer so they can incorporate them into the patio design. Make sure your designer draws your patio design to an identifiable scale. Have them draw in your patio furniture and accessories so you can get an idea if, and how, they will fit on your patio. These questions will help you decide what size of patio you need to install. Remember, bigger doesn’t mean more functional. Also, keep in mind, if your wants exceed your budget, using brick or concrete patio pavers will allow you to seamlessly add on later.
When your landscape designer has answers to this functionality issues, he can help you conceptualize a patio design plan which can suit your personality, taste and budget. Many landscape designers believe that building various smaller and highly functional areas is more visually appealing than having just one large outdoor room or slab. In choosing your location, place it where it will not be adversely exposed to the harmful effects of UV rays from the sun as well as the other natural elements.
