The patio is a Spanish word and means courtyard or forecourt. It is a paved outdoor area that is adjacent to a residence and is usually used for recreational and dining purposes. They are usually paved with concrete slabs, but they also have other alternatives such as bricks, tiles, etc. If you need additional living space, patios are the right choice. Let’s look at some inspiring ideas for patio floors that you can choose from.
- concrete floor
A concrete terrace floor is one of the cheapest and most impressive options. You can choose concrete blocks with different shapes and arrange them so that they form a floor. The best thing about this method is that you can lay it at will. They can be placed far or close together as you see fit. In addition, you can opt for a perfect shade that complements the overall look.
- brick floor
A nice, modern home needs a vintage touch to complete the look, doesn’t it? That is exactly the reason for you to choose this look. A brick floor gives the whole look a touch of history and subtlety. A bonus for this look is that this floor always gives a cozy view of the back yard.
- tiled floor
If you are one of those people who would like to expand their garden as a terrace area, this look is the right choice for you. A terrace with large stone slabs offers enough space for a table or other piece of furniture. There is also a nice aesthetic view of the yard. The look of the grass between the flagstone pieces adds as a natural touch. Wonderful, isn’t it?
If you own a house with a large garden, terrace, or lawn, you may want to do some recreational activities there. Pool is one of those activities that many people can enjoy during a party, family celebration, or even in a smaller group. However, the outdoor pool table needs to be carefully selected as it has to stay outside for a long period of time and cannot be moved in every rain.
The outdoor pool table should primarily be made of durable material. it has to withstand certain storms. The legs and frame should be solid and covered with paint or varnish so that they can survive wetness or heat. You will also need a cover for the top as the towel is specific to playing the pool and it needs to be well protected from rain, snow and direct long-term sun exposure. Since a lot of game accessories are required for a billiard game, it is recommended to choose the type of outdoor pool table where the balls can be safely stored under the table top (cues, balls, etc.).
Nowadays, additional options are offered on the market that make the pool table for the outdoor area more than just a game object. For example, you can buy a table that can be converted into a pool table by removing the top cover.
This way you can dine outdoors and then play billiards, which saves space. The design and coloring can be very different, so you can choose the style that fits perfectly with your home, patio or landscaping.
