If you possess a huge and beautiful house then there is one space in it,which if given due consideration can make your house even more attractive. That is Patio. It is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation and often adjoins a residence and is typically paved. It is a roofless inner courtyard or a paved area between a residence and a garden. It is an important part of your house , even though it is outdoors but still it is a living space. And you need to give the equal consideration to this area as you give to the other areas of your house. It is not just a wide open outdoor area but it is a place which you can use for to spend together with your family and friends in your house. It adds living space to your home which can be useful at certain times and occassions. You can relax there with your friends, can enjoy the pleasant weather in monsoon,children can use it as a play area, it is an apt location for a romantic dinner with your loved one and for a family get together and can be used as a lounge room. If made and decorated in an elegant style, patios can enhance the beauty of your house by two folds and can part elegance and beauty to your abode. Oversized layouts and poor construction not only waste and under-utilise the space but is also a waste of money. But such blunders are a common sight. But with proper planning and consideration of requirements and space, it is possible to create perfect patios which are not only visually aapealing but are also practical and functional for day-to-day use. They are typically made of concrete or stone slabs laid over a base. There is a vast range of range of materials but most popular ones are sandstone, granite and limestone which have their own unique characteristics. Colour, size and material should be considered according to the make of the house. You can also be creative with the paving pattern and orientation which can influence the overall looks. Large rectangles can be used to stretch the length or you can use different sizes of slabs to create an mosaic on the floor. And you should use furniture which should compliment it. Add few beautiful chairs and a coffee table, a BBQ , and some loungers to relax. And the open space above the seating area can be covered with an umbrella or an awning. An awning is a covering attached to the exterior wall of a building on.They can be located on doors (main entry), windows or the area along the side walk. They provide shade to your room and outdoor by blocking scorching heat and sunlight in summers and also protection against rain and snow. Let your creativity loose and make your house the talk of the town.
