Another factor to take into account is the weather. If live in a primarily sunny area, you can do pretty much whatever esthetic you chose; however if you live in a more damp or four season area, consider constructing your patio with a covering or install heated areas that will overcome the cold or dampness that might be present. Another option for heating your space is to install fire pits, heated lamps or benches with built in heating.

Capacity of the patio, The patio needs to be large enough to accommodate the correct size of table with room for chairs to be pulled out and for people to move around easily when others are seated. A guide is to allow 1m width for the table, 500mm width on either side of the table for each chair when not pushed under the table, 300mm between chairs down the side of the table, and 700mm width to pull each chair out and sit down comfortably.

Its your choice after all, All the above mentioned are excellent patio materials to be use for your patio. In addition, you can even use a combination of different types of patio materials to make your patio comfortable. Also, you have to consider the drainage properties of each material. For instance, individual stones, bricks, or pavers will let water through more than a whole slab of concrete.

When you are figuring out your budget for the patio, you must take into account the maintenance costs of each different type of patio material. You may find that you are better off choosing a more expensive but durable patio materials up front rather than choosing a cheaper one that has a higher average maintenance cost. Also, make sure that you include into your budget for any additional walkways or paths that need to be built.

It is also as durable as most other patio materials. It requires very minimal maintenance. In addition, stone veneers are much easier to find in the market. Plain concrete sometimes also known as cement is probably the easiest material in terms of upkeep and maintenance. Plain concrete is the most affordable material available.

Also, if you live in a relative sunny area or for those peak summer months, think about a retractable patio screen or a motorized patio screen for larger doors, to help shield the suns damaging UV rays and annoying glare, in addition to protecting you, your family and friends from annoying insects and bugs. This is especially important when you are serving food and drinks.

Patios also allow you to take your cooking out of the kitchen. Instead of a conventional barbecue grill, think about adding a built-in barbecue pit, patio brick or pizza oven, built-in kitchen with storage cabinets for utensils. A small refrigerator, wine or beer storage area, coolers or even a small dishwasher can be added to keep your patio and kitchen area separate, as well as have everything you need right outside and at hand.

Also consider easy access from your home to your patio area. Whether it be a beautiful set of tilt and turn patio french doors or a large folding glass door with large retractable folding door screen.
