Have you seen a large, beautiful home and wondered what was missing to make it feel complete? In our experience, it’s often as simple as the absence of outdoor patios. A well-designed patio improves the curb appeal exponentially, particularly in the front of the home. Patios add architectural richness and a sense of room to breathe.
And that’s just the aesthetics: As a lifestyle factor, an outdoor patio is a way of creating a seamless transition from in-doors to out. It’s not a stretch to say that the presence of patios and porches can improve the sense of community for a whole neighborhood. Aren’t you far more likely to stop and converse with your neighbors when you see them outdoors on the patio enjoying a cold drink, or vice versa?

In the front of the house, patios are a great way to sit and watch the world go by…from evening joggers to children playing on the sidewalk. In the back of the home, a patio creates a more private space to relax and enjoy the quiet and solitude. It’s as if we have come full circle: There was a time when people spent so much of their time soaking in the breeze and conversation on their patios, decks, and verandahs, and then for years it seemed to go out of fashion, with people cooped up inside whenever they were home. Now, outdoor spaces of all sorts are more popular than ever as people come to view them as true extensions of the house. This is especially true with our beautiful Gold Coast climate.
The Versatility of Outdoor Patios
There are no limits to where an outdoor patio can add new design elements to your home, from side patios to courtyard-style patios that become outdoor centerpieces, with multiple access points from different areas of the home.
We’ve even worked with homeowners who opt to rip out an unused, enclosed room in order to make space for a new patio that better serves their goals for entertaining, opening up the house or just creating a new space to enjoy the outdoors.
We work with both existing homes and new construction in designing and building new outdoor patios. For both, patios can become valuable living space for a fraction of the cost of adding square footage that is enclosed.
When we sit down to discuss your plans, one of our favourite parts is the chance to explore with you the different types of decking that are available for outdoor patios today. Treated pine is popular for its relatively low cost as well as versatility and resistance to insects and rot. Merbau, an imported hardwood out of Southeast Asia and Queensland, is another durable decking that can last for decades. We also work quite a bit with spotted gum decking, a hardwood native to Australia that many people love for the natural wavy pattern in its grain.
We will go over all of your options with you—including other timbers and a wide variety of colours and finishes—until you are satisfied you’re getting the look and durability you require. And we’ll never encourage you to make a choice we believe to be anything less than top quality, no matter what your budget. Regardless of how much or how little you’re planning to spend, making sure you get great value out of your investment is very important to us.
