Enhance Patios with Innovative Patio Designs and Screen Enclosures

By Bob Barden Subscribe to RSS | February 25th 2012 | Views:

In Spanish, patios translate to “back garden” or “backyard.” These functional and beautiful spaces are excellent for outdoor dining and home entertaining, especially in warm seasons. Patios are extensions of interior living spaces and can include furnishings that reflect your personal style.

The value and aesthetic of your home can be greatly improved with elegant patio designs and screen enclosures. Patios with these enhancements offer function as well as visual appeal. If you decide to improve your patio, it is important to find a licensed and experienced contractor to help you select and install the best patio designs and screen enclosures to suit your unique home.

When creating or improving patios, you have options in color, patterns, and accessories. There are also choices of brick, concrete, stone and tile textures and styles in patio designs. A reputable contractor should be able to provide a host of examples of patio designs, as well as screen enclosures that offer protection from the elements.

Patios should be designed with beauty, function, and budget in mind. The first consideration is the patio location. The closer to the house and kitchen, the more likely such patio designs will be functional. Accessibility to electricity for lights, electric barbecues, or a fountain should also be deliberated.

Patios serve as private outdoor rooms and at times you may desire more privacy than not. Screen enclosures offer privacy while also providing shade and helping block wind and sound. Patio designs should also consider the view from where you would sit.

Patios should not be too close to large trees that could suffer root damage or destroy patios. At the same time, patio designs need to take the house and surrounding garden into account so that there is a cohesive sense of harmony.

You can add interest and function to a patio by having different elevations included in patio designs. For example, a raised patio might offer a better view and superior drainage in heavy rains. Paving narrow or small areas of your garden can make a mostly unused spot functional and attractive. Paving is also easier to maintain than mowing or planting.

Patios come in all shapes, sizes, and budgets, but bigger isn’t necessarily better. Some of the most aesthetic patios are small, tranquil spaces that help bring families closer together. Whatever your choice, adding patios or screen enclosures will only increase the beauty and worth of your home.
