Types of Outdoor Patios
When designing your custom patio, there are a few flooring options you can choose from, including:
- Brick – Now, you might be thinking “why would I used the same material on my home as the floor to my patio?” This option also gives you the opportunity to create patterns such as herringbone, or alternating bricks on a 90-degree angle, as well as a pinwheel, which forms a square with four regular-sized bricks and a half brick in the middle.
- Tile – Looking for something with a unique sense of beauty? Both ceramic and porcelain tiles make for a distinctive patio.
- Poured concrete – Made up of cement, sand, gravel, and water, poured concrete is a manipulative semi-liquid that can be formed into almost any shape or size. If you’re looking for a versatile option to create a specific shaped patio, then poured concreate might be the best choice for your Northern Virginia home.
- Concrete pavers – These can be compared to a mix of poured concrete and brick. Concrete pavers are made of dense concrete that is compacted to form individual pieces that mimic brick or stone—but for a lower price.
- Stone – For a picture perfect patio, consider installing stone tiles. Stone looks beautiful when contrasted with nature because of its natural hues. This patio flooring option is also one of the most durable, which is a major benefit considering it needs to withstand the elements!

Benefits of Installing an Outdoor Patio
A professionally designed patio offers more advantages than creating a beautiful space to enjoy the outdoors. These benefits include:

- Expanded living space – Ever throw a gathering at your house that was slightly too cramped? With an outdoor patio, there is more room for your guests to mingle. A patio essentially gives you another room during the long summer months.
