Terminology is important when it comes to talking about your outdoor space. Many people use the words patio and deck or patio and porch interchangeably to mean “any outdoor entertaining space.” However, there are distinct differences between these projects.
A deck is considered an open outdoor porch or platform that extends out from a home. A deck may be freestanding or attached to a house and is typically made from wood or other composite material. Generally, a deck is raised up off the ground to a certain degree.
The word patio comes from the Spanish word patio, which means backyard or back garden. A patio can be a structure that is either attached or detached from a home and is built at ground level. Patios are extremely versatile, can be made in any number of shapes and sizes, and may be constructed from a variety of different materials. Since they are built at ground level, patios rarely require stairs or a guide rail like decks typically do.
The benefits of adding a patio are numerous. They can significantly increase your living space by turning the outdoors into another “room” or entertaining space. A patio is a place where you can kick back at the end of the day and unwind, entertain family and friends, have a second cooking space, or even turn it into an outdoor yoga or meditation area. There is no end to the number of uses you’ll be able to find for a new patio.
A patio is also an investment that is easy to clean and maintain. A well-built patio can also last for 25 years or more while still maintaining its value with minimal labor on the part of the homeowner. This wonderful means of personalizing your outdoor space can also increase the functional amount of square footage in your home.
For those that aren’t fond of yardwork, adding a patio is a great way to decrease your lawn maintenance while adding an outdoor element that you can be proud of and enjoy. A patio is also a great option for those who have a pool or are thinking of installing a pool in the future. The patio can be a natural extension of the pool area that gives people the space to sit, relax, and enjoy their environment.
Today’s patios are so much more than just simple poured slabs of concrete. Patios are extremely versatile and can be made from a variety of materials. Yet, even “basic” concrete has been given a stylish new update and can be spectacular with the range of tinting and stamping options that are now available.
Picking the right material for your job comes down to examining your needs, what the patio will predominantly be used for, and your aesthetic desires. Some of the most commonly used patio materials that you may want to consider include:
Within each category of material, there are several other sub-categories that allow an individual to customize the look of their new patio. A concrete patio can be smooth or stamped with a pattern. It can also be tinted different colors and even decorated with inlays before the concrete sets. Tiles come in numerous colors and designs, while pavers, brick, and natural stones like granite, marble, and limestone can be laid in a variety of different configurations to create unique and eye-catching patterns. Even loose gravel such as pea gravel and sand can be utilized to transform an outdoor space into a useful, economical, and functional area. These materials can also be mixed and matched to create a one-of-a-kind space that fits your practical needs and aesthetic desires.
