When you live in a place like Tucson that is sunny most days of the year, having a patio at your house just makes sense. A beautiful decorative concrete patio lets you enjoy the great outdoors in every season, and if it’s covered, you can keep using it well into the summer months. Outdoor living is one of the most popular household trends these days, so patios are a great addition whether you’re planning on staying in your home for many years or thinking of moving in the near future. Keep reading for an inside look at the patio planning process.
Planning a patio takes a bit of forethought, and one of the first things you need to consider is where you want your patio to be. Patios can be located on the front, side, or back of the house, and can even be placed a bit further away from the house for privacy. If you’re thinking about using your patio for cooking or outdoor dining, it’s generally a good idea to have it located with easy access to your indoor kitchen.
Patios come in all different sizes, so figure out how you want to use your patio. If you have a relatively small backyard and you don’t entertain all that often, a smaller sized patio may be just what you need. However, if you have the space or you want to turn your backyard into your friends’ No. 1 barbecue destination, have a larger concrete patio installed to accommodate more guests.
While brick, slate, and flagstone have traditionally been top choices for patio materials, consider how your patio material will look and work in the long run. Some patio materials can become uneven very quickly, which can lead to wobbly tables and chairs and even present a tripping hazard. Consider stamped or decorative concrete for a beautiful and even patio surface.
