Whether you call it a patio, a veranda or a porch, the addition of a covered area to the exterior of your home is a great way to add value to your home and improve your lifestyle. In this article you will find just a few of the benefits you can expect by adding a patio to your existing home, or adding one to the plans of a home you intend to build. This information is by necessity brief in nature, so if you need to find out more, don't hesitate to contact a qualified tradesman for a further consultation.
Extra floor space
Especially with small suburban blocks, floor space in homes can be limited. Adding an extension to your home is not always economical, or even possible, given local council zoning regulations.
We all love those outdoor parties, barbecues and get together in our patio. But what if it rains suddenly? There remains hardly any option other than retreating indoors, ruining all the fun. A great solution to this problem lies in putting up a patio awning covering your patio. Patios make a comfortable space for your friends and family. Awnings add to this space by providing a roof converting the patio almost to an outdoor room for everybody to have fun. Patios, apart from providing a comfortable space in the outdoors also add to the beauty of your home. You would never want them to be ruined by rain or some other agent. Awnings thus provide a fantastic way of protecting your patio. So, what exactly are awnings? An awning, also known as an overhang is a secondary cover attached usually to the exterior walls of a building. They are made of a variety of materials such as canvas, cotton, polyester, vinyl etc. stretched over a metallic framework for support.
The impetus of the design lay in the philosophy that due to the hectic lifestyle required to support a grand outdoor space, many of us don’t get the choice to enjoy our garden during the daytime. So, "The 24 Hour Garden", as it was so aptly named, was built with not only its lit aesthetic in mind, but also the applications it might promise after hours, particularly those of hosting and catering.
It seemed a topic not oft discussed in conventional garden design, so we wanted to suggest how one might go about building your own space whose usefulness is complete, regardless of whether the clock reads lunchtime or late-o-clock.
