A patio is an investment not only in the value and outdoor appeal of a home, but also an investment in the quality of life for the homeowners that live there. A quality outdoor patio material and of the right size provides the perfect environment for kids to play, entertainment area for your friends, or just to kick back and unwind at the end of a long day.
One of the many considerations that goes into a new outdoor patio is simply "how big should it be?". If a patio is built too small it will feel crowded by the time the furniture, grills and planters are put on it. If it's too big, you'll lose that intimate feel that patios can provide. Feel free to use these ideas when deciding on just how big of a patio space you or your family may need.
