How to Maximize the Use of Your Patio, Porch, or Deck
As you imagine and plan your ideal outdoor living space, keep the following questions in mind to ensure that you end up with a porch, deck, or patio that is right for you and your home:
How much room do you require?
If you want to regularly entertain large people outside, or if your family is large and enjoys grilling all summer, include a deck with enough space for a grill or two and plenty of seating.
Do you like an open space or a confined space?
Large, slow, relaxed summer get-togethers might be appropriate on an open deck that extends organically into your backyard.n For those who desire solitude and peaceful alone time, a screened-in patio is a wonderful alternative. A covered porch with glass windows protects costly things like a stereo system, beloved books, or distinctive furnishings from burglars and the elements.
What aspects of design are most important to you?
Do you want a room that can handle the rigors of energetic young children and grandchildren? Do you want a room with plenty of locations to hang twinkle lights? Do you want a luxury barbecue built-in or exciting additions like a chimenea or a freestanding firepit?
