BEST PATIO DESIGNING TIPS

It probably isn’t that big a deal to arrange a few furniture, set up a couple of equipment and calls it a day. However, that doesn’t make your patio all the more beautiful, does it? Designing a beautiful patio space is a very tricky task. Might I add, it is also a very intuitive job too. There are people who’ve spent years, solely dedicated to the art of designing creatively unique patios for homes. You probably are wondering how to do so yourself, am I right? Well, you’re in the right place. I’ve detailed down the best tips and hacks that will enable you to design your very own patio.

What are the best patio designing tips?

Out of the many tips that exist, the following are some of the more crucial ones that you could adhere to in order to design your very own outdoor patio easily.

  • Material Mixing: Those days are gone when all patio furniture were made out of the very same materials. The modern day patio designs include a mix of various items. When you don’t like all your furniture inside your house looking alike, why should your patio furniture match at all? Ensure to use a very sustainable and weather proof wood such as rain resistant one for the patio crafting. Either go for weather treated one or perhaps the more weather permeable one as well.
  • Porch Swing: Sounds exciting right? A lot of people have their own porch swing in their backyard. Get yourself one too. It lights up the setup completely. Try to get a metal swing or perhaps one with a wooden base. It is a good choice to include either since a patio is outdoors and a poor material one will easily get damaged due to the changing weather.
  • Lounge Environment: Lounge areas are a dear to me. I love the idea of including a lounging area in the patio. Try to fit in a coffee table in there along with a very good seating arrangement like a couch perhaps will simply make the place so much more wonderful. Chairs are like formal seating stuff while a patio should more about comfort and hence you should include soft cushioned seating like bean bags or lazy couches perhaps.
  • Jewel Tones: Colour is beautiful, period. Flaunt the beauty of your patio with its colours that are included in the pillows, cushions, tables and more. Avoid the red colour. It simply feels too bulky for a patio design. Stick to something more monotone like grey or tan.
  • Go with consistent planting: You must have seen several plantings in your friend’s patio or someplace else. Having a consistent set of planting will make it very easy for you to take care of and nurture. It will also reduce the burden of regular gardening too. Also, you want your patio to be simple yet sophisticated and hence the consistent plants will enable you to keep it that way very easily.

What to Keep in Mind When Designing Your Patios?

Even though it is just one part of your garden, the way your patio looks becomes one of the most important factors in deciding how your garden looks. When designing a patio, keep in mind

Designing Patios

Where are you putting it in the garden?

Putting patios where you don’t get any sun is no use, so pick a spot which is bright and where you see yourself unfolding a chair and unfolding yourself in the process. Avoid setting up patios adjacent to the exit because it will keep causing disturbance. Consider building more than one patios so they can be used for more than one purposes. It will also keep things interesting.

What are you going to use it for?

Only once you have that figured in your head will you be able to decide on the size of the patio. If you want to set it up only for the purpose of sunbathing then select a spot where there is sun all day. To make more use of just one patio, like setting up lunches and dinners outside, select a spot where there is a bit of a shade.

How much can it accommodate?

Will it be able to fit a table? Will it have room to unfurl five mats? As a basic, leave about 1 metre width for the table and half of that all around for easy movement.

Are you considering built-in seating?

If you’re sure of the one or two uses you will make of your patio, it is sensible to go with built-in seating. Many people choose to set up an outdoor fireplace which looks very elegant and utilizes all the space in the patio very well.

How much privacy do you want?

We don’t advise you to do all your business in a tent but creating a private environment will become increasingly important to you after the few times you make use of the patio. Consider putting up a wall around or grow a hedge to make a safe enclosure.

What is your budget?

All the above will be determined by your budget. This will help you figure if the wall around your patio is really necessary or you can do with the hedge. A garden comes with its own basic expenses and a patio is only an added expenditure so when you set up a patio make sure that it is of use to you all times of the year.

What is your surface material?

There are enough options in the market for your patio to turn you blind. The steeply priced ones include real stone and concrete slabs. Most places you will also be able to get stamped or coloured concrete slabs as patio material. It is advisable to avoid concrete though as it fades easily and ends up looking fake. Truth be told, there isn’t even much of a difference between them and the real stones. So you might as well invest your money in the right place. They have less maintenance cost and will last you years.

The Different Kind of Patio Materials Available

Surfaces of patios can look beautiful now as there are variety of materials available at home improvement depots. These materials are not just limited to patios but can be put to use for multiple projects like fixing walkways and driveways but also to contain walls among other things. While selecting the material it is wise to see how well they match with the surroundings as well as other stuff laid out in the same space. The materials need also be checked for their quality. As they are open to wear and tear, good quality of the product should be seen as an intelligent investment.

Types of Patio Materials

There are lots of materials to choose from for your patio. Few of them being

Real Stone

This one will burn a hole in your pocket for a natural looking surface. The trouble with this material is all stones have different shapes and sizes and so you would need a skilled person to put them in place. That being said, the surface will last you a long time with very little maintenance.

Stone Veneer

This one has most of the benefits of real stone and is not very expensive either. It is also light and can be cut into various shapes and sizes quite easily. It is a tough material too and is easily available.

Plain Concrete

The most basic kind of flooring and hence also the most affordable, concrete floors can be played with when you are bored and need a change. It usually acts as a foundation for other patio materials.

Stamped or Coloured Concrete

Most practical out of all other, this is basically concrete with which is stamped or painted to make it look exactly like real stone. This will make a lot of sense if you are on a budget. Also there are so many designs to choose from for less than half the price.

Brick

The more conventional choice to dress up patio surfaces, bricks are no-fuss and easy to put together. In fact this could be one of the DIY things you do. They will give your patio a warm and earthy appeal.

Tiles

Tiles can be played around with just as coloured concrete. Pick unglazed tiles that are designed especially for outdoor surfaces. There are unbelievable number of colours, shapes and sizes to choose from.
