Having a patio is hugely popular in many homes and provides a versatile and attractive dining, relaxing and entertaining space. Many homeowners place great importance on having a patio in their garden. In the UK, indoor and outdoor space can be extremely limited which is why so many people look to extend their space into the garden.
Here are our top reasons to install a patio in your garden:
Extend Living Space
As we mentioned briefly above, if you want to extend your living space without adding an extension or conservatory to your home, a patio provides this space. Are you always looking for somewhere quiet to sit away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house? A patio gives you a place to go in order to relax and destress without the upheaval, mess and expense of other home improvement methods.
Many homeowners decide to build the patio directly outside their kitchen, dining room or living room and the two are connected by large French or patio doors. This gives the illusion of more space inside and outside the home and allows visitors to flow through to the patio naturally when entertaining.
A Place to Unwind
Our home is somewhere we go to relax at the end of a long day and, for many, a patio is simply an extension of this. When unwinding on the patio, you can enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and the sound of wildlife outside. Many people also enjoy creating a space on their patio in which to meditate and clear their thoughts after a stressful day.
An Entertainment area
Patios provide a great place to entertain your friends and family. From dining al fresco to parties and relaxing with friends over a few drinks, patios are extremely versatile and provide you with an outdoor room that can be used for almost any activity.
Get more use from your garden
For many homeowners, a garden is just another element of the home that they have to maintain and it can often become one of the most neglected areas due to lack of time. A patio will help you to get much more from your garden and allow you to enjoy it on a number of levels.
If maintaining a full garden, plants and foliage are too time-consuming, a patio is a low maintenance yet attractive way to decorate your garden. Our York stone paving, reclaimed paving and crazy paving are all options you could choose to create your patio and create an attractive, hard wearing and attractive space for your home.
Adds value to your home
In addition to other advantages, a patio can also help to add value to your home. When people want to buy a home, the inclusion or exclusion of an entertainment area can make or break the sale. Depending on the current value of your home, extending your outdoor space or making it more usable can significantly increase the value of your home.
