The top four things to consider when designing the ideal patio for your outdoor area

Designing the ideal patio for your home can be challenging as there are so many aspects to consider.

To help you design your dream patio here are the top four things to consider:

1. You, the owner

Having been designing and building patios for years here at Ultimate Alfresco means we have a wealth of experience. It also means that we have the knowledge to provide options for you to help you design your ideal patio.

Ultimately, though, it is your home. And as the home owner you will see the patio every day. What we will do is offer advice based on what you describe and what you want to achieve.

We do this by asking you what you want out of your ideal patio. And then we help make that idea come to life for you.

2. The size and use of your outdoor area

When designing your ideal patio, it’s important to think about the area you want to have covered.

Plus, think about what outdoor furniture you will be using, whether you will have a bbq or outdoor kitchen, and how you will use your outdoor area.  

By taking into account the size and use you can make sure your outdoor furniture and the layout is the right fit and design and fills the patio area appropriately.

3. Designing your patio

Designing your patio is important, not only for the overall look but how it will flow with your home. 

Your patio design can reflect your personality, help add privacy from neighbours and create a practical yet beautiful outdoor area.  And a custom design means your outdoor area is unique to your home and your patio looks and feels like an integral part of your home.

4. Roof options

There are a variety of roofing options you can choose. From louvred roofs to insulated roof panels to open arbours to glass roofs. Think about what type of flexibility you want from your patio and if you want a roof that will integrate with your home. You can read about our four favourite roofing options here.
