Most patios are sited immediately adjacent to the rear exit from the house because it is convenient - this may not be the best location for your patio. The back of the house may be shaded all day and therefore not ideal if you wish to like to sit in the sun. Consider a small terrace to the rear of the house with another seating area somewhere else in the garden which gets more sun. When designing a garden it's a good idea to include more than one patio.. One patio can be sited so that it catches the last of the evening sun to provide a warm spot for an evening drink or meal. This makes the garden much more interesting and ensures that you are using more of the garden.
The National Association of Home Builders have noted that having a great outdoor space is an important home design trend in 2012. They also noted that approximately 12 percent of homeowners either remodeled or added to their patio area. By creating a great patio area, you can have a functional and utilitarian space that is an extension of your home. Patio additions are one of the highest recouping value that you can add to a home.
Take your time to choose your flagstone pavers. A lot of garden centres and builders yards will have them on display for you to view. Choose something that will compliment your existing style and features. You don't want to spend a lot of money on the 'in thing' only to discover it has gone out of fashion in a few years time!
