A Patio for Every Home

A Patio for Every Home

Crowding a small patio will only make it appear smaller. So choose select pieces of seating and patio tables to fit your needs but keep furnishings minimal. Add reflective accessories anywhere possible to add the illusion of space. This can be achieved by adding small sculptures created from reflective metals. Installing patio doors which are mainly glass adds a sense of more open space so sliding glass doors are often perfect for this purpose.

Homes with more space have room for larger patios and more patio furnishings. A medium size patio can easily contain a patio set, several patio tables, and lounges for sunning. You’ll have space to add some plants and even a small fountain if you wish. A good type of patio door for a medium sized patio is a French door which consists of normal sized doors set side by side and opening in the middle. Both doors can be opened at once to provide a large, airy space for entry and exit to and from the patio.

A large home can easily support a large patio and provide a huge outdoor space for the family. If you have a large patio, you can add more patio furnishings but you still want to avoid making the patio appear overcrowded. A large patio is ideal for adding a patio fireplace or patio firepit. These can double as a means of cooking outdoors or you can add a traditional grill too. With a large patio you can create several conversation groupings of furniture to allow different people to become involved in different activities without disturbing one another.

A patio can be constructed of numerous materials. Frequently, patios are concrete slabs which may have a one of the many types of patio covers or a retractable patio awning. Often, patios are constructed of wood and sometimes called “decks”. These may have wooden rails around the patio and may or may not be covered with a patio cover of some type. Yet another type of patio is created by laying brick or stone in an attractive design. This construction is long lasting and very sturdy, requiring minimal maintenance.

No matter what type or size of patio you have or want to add, the best part of having a patio is enjoying the outdoors with your family and friends. Patios are perfect settings for barbecues and parties as well as family dinners. A patio also adds value to a home and makes it more desirable to buyers if you later wish to sell the home.
