Patio Design Options

Similar to a deck or pergola, a patio can have different types/designs for you to choose from. Each one has different features to consider and are as follows:


This is what you would consider as a traditional/general type of patio where it may feature a flat roof and standard pillars while attached to the home. The main thing you’ll want with any patio is a heat deflection and insulation to avoid heavy winds. By choosing the right service, you can have a patio that can stand different weather conditions. What’s more, a conventional patio can feature different materials depending on what style you’d like. 


The main feature of this patio design is that it has approximately 700mm of extra head height across the entire patio roof. With its additional height and materials, you can be ensured of good ventilation, especially when combined with effective roofing materials. A thing to note with this patio design however is to ensure your property is able to have this design applied and whether your chosen service is able to accommodate this design. 


Similar to gabled pergolas, it has the rafters cut at angles and meet in the middle of the construction at a ridge which you can have to reflect the structure of your roof. Another thing you can have with gabled patios are side ‘wings’, otherwise known as a flat section on either side of the gable. With wings, you can have better waterproofing ensured. 


There are three different feature points you will find with this patio design. One is that it can come in different sizes and can be incorporated into other patio types. Like other patios, it gives good ventilation but its venting system is unique. It cools your patio by allowing hot air to be drawn out. Last but not least, a skydome patio features more natural light under your patio than traditional light panels or skylights.

When it comes to the type of materials you can have the following for its surface: 

  • Gravel
  • Concrete
  • Pavement
  • Clay Bricks
  • Flagstone
  • Tile
  • Sand
  • Cut Stone
