The Patio is a tremendous addition to any house, especially here on the Gold Coast. It can not only add value to your house, but add a completely new living situation for you and your family.
D&C Patios has come up with a list of considerations when you are in the market for one of our award winning products that won’t break the bank.
While in your mind, the patio out on the yard might be the perfect oasis to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air, but there are several considerations you need to make before deciding on that.
At D&C Patios, we recommend you starting your patio journey with a solid budget and then a wish list.
Some suggestions for your list of consideration to build into your budget:
- New outdoor setting or lounges
- Walling to block out adverse weather
- Hot tub
We’re sure you’ve got plenty more of your own that you’ll think of!
How big is your block or property and where do you ideally want to place your new Patio?
Some may have the luxury to build it in the backyard quite separate to the house so it can be used on a lazy summer afternoon as a getaway or entertainment area for a group of friends. The Gold Coast is fortunate to have an enviable climate so it will be just as pragmatic to use your patio during winter.
It may be that your patio is an extension of the existing house to build value or add a more usable semi-outdoor area.
Work out what is important to you and your lifestyle and that’s the best way to start!
What do you want to do with your patio? If you are the entertainer it might want to be larger – it also depends on if you are going to turn it into your permanent barbecue area for those awesome outdoor get togethers.
Many of D&C Patios clients’ have opted for smaller, quaint backyard patios that give you a place to relax, enjoy a drink and a good book, while others have gone for the full blown party deck!
Size also comes back to budget and also the location that you want to build it.
