patio design. Saturday , January 06th , 2018 - 07:43:53 AM
If you’re looking for a nice patio; one that you can not only show off, but also one you can use; there are several guidelines to follow to improve your chances of success. There are three questions that you should ask yourself. If you answer these questions honestly you will be able to create a patio design that is not only functional, but also beautiful.
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.
It does not make a difference what you read in building or household improvement magazines, there’s no law that says patio designs have to stick to the primary flow of the house. They can wrap close to a house corner if extra outdoor space is needed and could also be designed into a deck on a different grade of the home. If the terrain slants away to one side of the house, the patio may include stairs leading to one more level grade of decking on the portion of the home with a higher elevation. It’s true that patio styles are intended to supply additional outdoor living area and the individual having to pay for the job should select the design. One thing to be able to bear in mind is that if the home is ever bought, the patio designs utilized may influence the perception for prospective buyers as to whether they might keep it as is or tear it out and start over again. The point is, patio designs can distinctively reflect the taste of the property owner, as well as enhance the worth of the home. If the homeowner is going to the time and expenditure of adding a patio, it might as well add value to the home as well.
