You are in an optimal position for adding a patio to your home if you have a house where your kitchen or living area is facing the back of the house and you have sliding doors to the backyard. Adding on a patio will enhance the spaciousness of your home.

Your patio does not have to be elaborate or state-of-the-art if your main concern is simply to add additional space. Extending your house with a patio gives you extra space for entertainment and outdoor cooking.

Keep your guests out of your kitchen and into the sunshine while you prepare a meal. Guests love to mingle on a patio or deck. It has a great feel under their feet and most people enjoy the outdoors on a beautiful day.

Not only will you have extra space in your kitchen with your guests out on the deck or patio, you will also have created the perfect outdoor “man cave.” Most men love to talk over the braai, and making a patio is the perfect designated area for the coveted braai.

This is great spaces to hold book club meetings in nice weather or to have some girlfriends over for a light lunch.

You can create useful storage space out on your patio that you did not have before in the way of deck storage for cushions. You can even custom build benches that have storage built inside them and store all of your summer items in those benches.

With the days warming up, and the tendency to gravitate outdoors, isn’t it time to build that patio?
