A patio can add value to your property and improve your enjoyment of your outside space, so it's important that you get the design right before the construction process gets underway. Read on for some helpful tips on designing your new patio.
Circulation and linking
When planning your patio layout, try to think of it as an extension of the rest of your property and incorporate links accordingly. For example, remember to include access from the patio to the garage if it's adjacent, or incorporate sliding or bifold doors if the patio links to your lounge or kitchen so that you can extend your indoor space outdoors.
There are different building materials that are appropriate for constructing a residential deck in the outdoor space. However, treated pine is one of the most beneficial choices to consider selecting for such a project. This type of wood is obtained from manmade plantations, so the cost is relatively low and the material is sustainably sourced. The pine pieces are also treated for resistance against termites, mildew and water damage, so it will perform well in fairly adverse conditions.
