When designing your new patio, there are many things to consider, including how large you want your patio to be, any additional features, and whether or not fun outdoor living elements like fire pits will be integrated into it. One of the single most important choices you will make is the brick pattern. Here is everything that you need to know to find the best brick pattern for your patio.
What’s the Weather Like?
Your patio will bear a lot of the brunt when it comes to thunderstorms or snow, so it’s important to take weather into account when choosing your patio bricks. How often does it rain? Are there frequent severe weather events, like hurricanes? Choose a patio brick pattern that can stand up to weather extremes and you will be much more likely to get many years of use out of it.
What’s Your Design Aesthetic?
Next, consider what your outdoor and indoor design aesthetics are. Do you like patio furniture that is rustic or that is sleek and modern? Do you already have other outdoor living features installed that your patio will need to match? Choose a patio brick pattern that will match these existing elements and project the design feeling you would like. If you have a great degree of freedom and creativity, the sky is the limit when it comes to your patio brick pattern. Work with the experts at Del Prete Masonry to come up with a fun pattern that will transform the way you see your brick patio.
How Much Can You Spend?
Last, think about what your budget for the brick portion of your patio project is. Keep in mind that you won’t just be paying for the bricks themselves, but also installation. The more complicated that the installation pattern is, the longer that it will take. Obviously, the longer that it takes, the more it will cost! Choose a brick pattern that you can afford for the best results.
