Dome patio with custom truss

Patio flooring can come in many looks, from concreting, bricks or decking and a lovely finish would be to add a floor rug or carpet piece for instance near seating giving a nice feel of the inside of the home coming to the outdoors.


There are some great pieces of art that can be hung or displayed to give the added wow factor to your patio, complimenting the space, keeping in mind that too much can overwhelm an area but a little here and there can be a nice touch to the colour scheme.

Plants and Features

Sounds of running, trickling water just puts you in a place of relaxation in a garden space, having a water feature amongst the plantation is a wonderful. What works great with garden spaces is you can go tropical having a beach setting theme, a Balinese with a Buddha statue or a Japanese theme with fish as a highlight, really it’s all up to the imagination.
