6 Patio Ideas to Transform Your Garden

Patios are a great addition to any Brighton garden. They add a focal point, allow you to entertain, and make any size garden feel more comfortable and intimate. If you’re planning on installing a new patio in your garden, here are six ideas to help you get started.

Create a Shaded Area

Having a covered area creates the perfect indoor-outdoor space that allows you to make the most of your garden year-round. By installing a patio right outside your back door, you can add a cover that creates a comfortable, welcoming seating area for guests.

In the summer, the cover can also provide much-needed shade so you can enjoy mealtimes and allow your children to play outside in a safer, shaded spot.

Go For Stone-Effect Tiles

There are plenty of options for patio materials, and it’s always a good idea to be sensitive to the style of your house. Modern homes look great with large, contemporary paving slabs, whereas traditional tiles look fantastic with period properties.

Stone-effect porcelain tiles are durable, high quality, and come in a range of styles. We often recommend these to our landscaping clients to get a sleek, clean finish.

Invest in an Outdoor Rug

An easy way to create that cosy setting you often see online is to lay a high-quality, large outdoor rug. These are warm underfoot and make an outdoor space feel like inside.

There are plenty of patterns and colours to choose from, so it’s easy to match a rug with your style and current decor. No matter what patio you go for, this gives a wonderful finishing touch.

Make a Statement

You can add a real wow factor by going to statement patterned tiles for your new patio installation in Brighton. Victorian-style matt-finish tiles give instant period charm, whereas bold, geometric patterns look great in modern homes.

Add a couple of sun loungers or a hammock, and you have a stylish oasis to relax in all summer long.

Add Zones

If you have a large garden to work with, use paving to create zones. You could go for a decking section along the lawn, create a split level with paving steps, and an intimate seating area with a stunning statement patio.

By adding zones and using your hard landscaping to divide areas, you’ll make your garden much more functional and it’ll look more professionally designed.

Create Different Rooms

When you’re thinking about zones, picture creating different rooms in your garden. Your patio could be a great spot for dining, with a table and chairs. Or you could create a ‘living room’ by adding lounge furniture.

By giving each area a distinct purpose, you’ll get more use out of your garden and create a hard landscaping design that works for you and your family.
