When you are buying a new patio or redesigning your old one, chances are that you were already checking out some of the spectacular patio furniture on our website and have been salivating at the thought of spending leisurely evenings around the fire pit. Yet if you are redesigning or building new, the visual component of the pattern of your patio is something that you should not overlooked. In fact, when you look at the overall aesthetic appeal of your patio, the pattern you go with makes a tremendous difference. Because there are many different patterns available, we have decided to make a list of a few of the more popular options.
Option #1 – Tudor Pattern
There are three different sizes of blocks in your patio when you use a Tudor pattern. Even though the patio pattern seems irregular, that itself adds a tremendous amount of flair and appeal. If you are looking for a patio pattern that does not look ‘standard’, this can be a good selection.
Option #2 – Herringbone
Herringbone is a patio pattern that has a single-size pattern with rectangular blocks. You can create a unique pattern with the herringbone pattern because you can place the bricks both vertically and/or horizontally. For the best aesthetic result, it is a good idea to use a 2:1 ratio in size.
Option #3 – Brick Emphasis
The brick emphasis patio pattern offers you a pretty unique pattern that you can use for your patio. You leave square patches in between the bricks as you arrange the rectangular bricks vertically. You can offset the brick with some planted grass on the square patches. This is going to add some style to your patio because of the highlighted squares and pattern of rectangle bricks.
Option #4 – Stretcher Bond
These patio patterns offer you a brilliantly elegant look, despite being amongst the simplest designs available. There is a good reasons why this is still one of the most popular design options amongst patio patterns.
It is a single size pattern, using only square bricks to create the pattern. With the design of a stretcher bond pattern, you make sure that you shift the blocks in such a way that no two corners ever meet. This goes against the traditional look of perfect rows and columns, but really adds a sense of surprise to your patio design.
Option #5 – Jack-on-jack
If you do not have a great deal of space for your patio, this design is a good option. The reason it would not necessarily work in a larger space is because the design can be a challenge to follow through.
