Patio deck designs using concrete pavers are as varied as can be. There are so many materials, colours, shapes and ways to put them together it can be tough to sort out what is best for you and your home. Start with a budget and then follow these tips.
The first thing you need to consider is what the patio will actually do and who will use it. Will it have a walkway and will that walkway be used by someone in a wheelchair or other person with mobility issues? A simple detail like that will steer you away from rough or cobblestone style pavers. You’d want a smooth and even surface to allow greater accessibility. Whatever your situation make sure you choose a material suitable to your needs.
The design process is next. This can be narrowed down by the first step and the budget you have set. These two pieces of information will help you find out what type of material you will need and how much you can afford to spend. This narrows your choices to help you find the design that is right for you. To help you choose a design look around your neighbourhood and see samples for free. Also, don’t think that you can only use one type of material. Say you do have someone in your life with mobility issues, that doesn’t mean your entire design has to cater to them with smooth materials used throughout, vary the design with rough cobble stone along the edges. This will keep it accessible to them and give you a design element you may have wanted all along.
With this done start measuring the area to be worked on and draw out your design. If you’re not quite talented enough you can hire a professional. You should at this point be well on your way to having several executable patio deck designs to choose from. Choose the one best for you and have fun.
