patio design. Saturday , January 06th , 2018 - 08:10:41 AM
Most patios are sited immediately adjacent to the rear exit from the house because it is convenient - this may not be the best location for your patio. The back of the house may be shaded all day and therefore not ideal if you wish to like to sit in the sun. Consider a small terrace to the rear of the house with another seating area somewhere else in the garden which gets more sun. When designing a garden it’s a good idea to include more than one patio.. One patio can be sited so that it catches the last of the evening sun to provide a warm spot for an evening drink or meal. This makes the garden much more interesting and ensures that you are using more of the garden.
When it comes to its usefulness, you need to ask yourself some basic questions such as do you hold big parties or small family gatherings regularly? Are there plenty of children during these parties? Would you like a big patio outdoor room or bistro types of various cozy small rooms? Would you like to have separate small playrooms for the kids? What types of furniture do you have in mind? Which surface texture do you prefer, patterned, colored, smooth, rustic, etc? In effect, functionality should be given priority and importance so that you can pick the best size, layout and shape.
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.
