Measure Your Space
The first thing you need to do is measure your outdoor space. This will enable you to being the design process. Consider how you would like to use your patio - Lounging? Dining? Perhaps a fire pit?
Once you measure your space, you can use Patio World’s Patio Planner grid to draw and outline your outdoor living area. Come into Patio World to pick up the Patio Planner and spend some time exploring the variety of furniture options available. Or click here to download the Patio Planner.
Space Planning with Tape
Design your furniture layout with the help of masking/painter’s tape. Once you have decided upon a general layout for your furniture (e.g. a pair of lounge chairs, a side table, and a rug) you can then use the tape to map your design. Measure and create boxes on your patio floor to represent the pieces in your design. By marking your space in this way, you can plan the best spacing and layout to fit your needs.
Questions to Ask Yourself
- How do I want to use my patio? Will I be dining, lounging, or both?
- How many people do I want to be able to seat?
- How does the sunshine travel over my space during the day? Do I need an umbrella?
- Do I want to keep my existing furniture and add to my collection with complementary pieces?
- Create a “wishlist” for your dream patio.
