Concrete patios are a staple of American backyard culture. From big outdoor barbeques to quiet family dinners, a great patio provides a place to come together and bond. If you’ve decided to purchase a stamped concrete patio, our team at Creative Concrete would be thrilled to play a role in creating the perfect outdoor space for you. We can help you design your concrete patio exactly the way you want it!
One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make for your new patio is size. As expert concrete patio contractors, Creative Concrete is here to help. While we can only assess your unique space with a consultation, below you’ll find a few thoughts that will get you going in the right direction.
Planning is Key
You can’t do enough planning when it comes to the size of your concrete – it’s a relatively permanent structure. Your happiness with the finished result is often determined on how well you plan for things like:
● Foot traffic – How will people get from point A to point B on your patio? Do they have routes to all doors? Is your concrete patio big enough, with your planned furniture arrangement accounted for, that people can pass one another side by side without crashing into one another?
● Furniture dimensions – Backyard furniture can be slightly larger than indoor furniture. Have you measured the dimensions of your furniture? The items you plan to use on the patio can help you determine the right size.
● Entertaining – Adding a concrete patio is a great way to expand your outdoor living space for entertaining. Does your family frequently host large gatherings? If so, a larger patio might better accommodate your needs.
● Climate – As a Minnesota homeowner, you’ll need a concrete patio that’s built to withstand freezing temperatures. When you work with Creative Concrete, we properly mix and cure the concrete to create a solid finish that holds up even through the harshest winters. Plus, we use high-end processes to ensure our cement mixtures have proper hydration levels to cure on schedule.
