With what could possibly be the hottest week of the summer forecast in Adelaide (now officially the hottest capital city in Australia after recording 46.6 in January), you could be forgiven for heading indoors to the sanctuary of air conditioning. However, thankfully, more comfortable temperatures are on the way, which is why you should start planning for a new Adelaide patio for your home.
If the above points have convinced you to build a new patio for your Adelaide home, there are a few key decisions you need to make.
Perhaps the most important is where to locate your new patio. For most people, the best place will be off the indoor living area. This is a practical location and will blur the lines between outside and inside. If you don’t want to locate your new Adelaide patio off your indoor living area, or it’s not practical, other popular places are directly off your kitchen or the main bedroom. The latter can be an excellent choice if you’re looking for a private patio.
Next, consider the design and style of your new patio. This is an area that stumps most people, but it can be as easy as looking at your house and matching the style and design that it encompasses. Another option is to use a patio design that will complement, rather than match your house. This can be a little trickier and riskier, but when done well can make a patio really stand out.
Then, decide on the materials that you will use. If you’re trying to match the design of your home, you should also try to match the materials as best as possible. If you’re looking for the complementary look, you have more choice, with timber, steel, aluminium, polycarbonate, tiles and more all possibilities.
Lastly, make sure you get the right support. This is the easiest decision, because, as mentioned above, Outside Concepts has branches right across Adelaide and can help you throughout the entire process. Decision made!
