Six Benefits Of Building An Outdoor Patio

Often considered to be an extension of the lounge room, an outdoor patio is a staple that fits with the overall Australian lifestyle – that is, getting outside.

According to recent data sourced from, a space to retreat to outside has been at the forefront of buyers minds, with the keyword “outdoor” showing a 41% increase when compared to life before the arrival of Covid-19. While it’s arguably easy to say that the jump is due to people looking to escape the confinements of life indoors during lockdowns, the preference isn’t exactly a new phenomenon. 


Six Benefits Of Installing An Outdoor Patio

Whether you refer to it as the porch, deck, terrace, verandah, or even courtyard, a classic outdoor patio arguably provides more functions than any other room or space in the average residential property. After all, where else can you exercise, relax, entertain or even garden? If installing an outdoor patio has been on your to-do list for a while now, there certainly are a wide array of benefits associated with having one that might just inspire you to stop procrastinating any longer. 

Home Equity – Want to boost the overall value of your home or property? Add an outdoor patio. You may not be planning on moving anytime soon, but it’s good to know you’ll be getting a return on your investment, should you ever sell your home.

Entertainment Precinct – The beauty of outdoor patios is that they can function however you would like them to – think along the lines of perhaps an outdoor kitchen, space for a hot tub, or simply an extra room to have a BBQ with your friends and family. 

Inexpensive – When it comes to return on investment for your home or property, adding an outdoor patio is a relatively inexpensive option to do so – especially if you’re a fan of DIY or consider yourself to be relatively handy with a tool box.

Green Space – Installing a new verandah or patio doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing your garden or the green space of your home, as you can absolutely have both. Consider pots, vertical gardens and climbing plants to bring your outdoor space to life.  

Blend Your Rooms – Creating a seamless indoor outdoor space is a growing trend in real estate, particularly for open spaces that blur the lines between an outdoor patio, kitchen and living room. Think bifold doors, kitchen servery windows and floor to ceiling glass. 

Low Maintenance – Other than the occasional sweep or rendezvous with the leaf blower, the great thing about outdoor patios is that they overall require little to no maintenance in the long term providing you’ve opted for the right installation techniques from the get go.
