Usually, patio styles are designed around the existing house and also the terrain. Consideration should be given to other outdoor living areas surrounding the patio, and patios should be designed to function alone or in conjunction with the other outdoor areas. Utilizing various colors and patterns of terrace stones will enable patio designs to be distinctive, irrespective of other places around the house or could be designed to fit in with a pathway around flower beds or a swimming pool.
The most common surface for a patio are paving slabs. There are many different types of paving slab with a wide range of price tags. Steer clear of concrete slabs - they are often more expensive than natural stone, will fade over time and always end up looking fake. Indian Sandstone has dominated the paving slab market for years as it is cheap, natural, widely available and looks good. Cheaper Indian Sandstone is not always the bargain it appears as it is thinner, or poorer quality and more porous causing leaching of the minerals in the mortar onto the top surface of the stone. There are some inexpensive granite slabs currently available that make a wonderful surface only slightly more expensive than Indian Sandstone. The more expensive options are Travertine, York stone, Basalt, and Marble. Polished concrete makes a wonderful contemporary surface for the patio. Resin bound gravel is not only great for driveways, but makes an excellent contribution to the patio paving when combined with other materials for textural contrast.
The goal of your patio design scheme is to create outdoor extension rooms which are unique, lovely and very useful for your planned family and social activities. It should project a warm, cozy, comfortable and friendly atmosphere which blends with the architecture and natural landscape ambiance of your home. Your design should equip the patio with amenities and accessories such as a lounge, pool, couch, dining sets, fireplace, patio umbrellas, awnings, bar/grill, night lighting, gazebos, etc. If your resources can manage, you can incorporate waterfalls, fountains, flower beds, arbors and pergolas so that you always have beautiful views while doing some meditation and relaxing activities. What your design should perfectly achieve is a patio which can serve as your own backyard leisure and retreat resort for your family to enjoy.
