Dealing with patio design is not a piece of cake. Some people might see patio as unimportant area in a house so that particular design for this area is unnecessary. In fact patio is not just a backyard terrace if you know how to exploit it. With the right design your patio could be more than just an open area behind your house.
If you are looking for some ideas for patio design a project named â??Small Covered Patio and BBQ Addition in Palo Altoâ? designed by Steve Borlik Architect would be a good inspiration. This patio is actually a remodel from an existing patio made from stone materials on the backyard.
It used to be an open area with thick stone flooring that make it looks like a stage. But with a small remodeling this unused area become a spotlight on the backyard and even functioned as outdoor living room by the resident.
The remodeling is actually simply adding a wooden roof to the patio so that it now looks like a terrace. The additional roof makes this patio become a semi-outdoor area that is perfect for outdoor seating with some friends and family. There are rattan chairs and table that makes this patio looks like a living room.
A BBQ place is also added to this area so that the resident could have outdoor BBQ even when it is raining. This patio area designed with the touch of classic idea which reflected on the using of wooden slats on the ceiling. The lantern is also added to the pillars on this patio to add glowing lights.
Not only that to create a wide and spacious impression to the house a glass door is added as connector between inner areas to the patio. The door is designed to be easy to be wide opened so that when they need an extra space they just need to simply open the door. So these are some inspirations for you to have a fabulous patio design of your own.
