Deck installation: what to consider when choosing the dimensions ?

The patio is one of the most commonly used spaces or settings in the home. The patio can be an open-air courtyard or an intermediate platform between the house and the garden. The patio is also placed inside the garden or in front of the flat. Its practicality makes it possible to accommodate the whole family or friends. However, in order to make the most of the patio, it is important to define the dimensions. The following criteria should be taken into account when determining the dimensions. 

Consider the space

The first thing to consider is the space available. This is a place that will house the patio. It is necessary to study the places that you have available and consider good for the patio. You have to see this and take care of it because it is impossible to choose dimensions larger than the available space.

Choose the dimensions of the terrace according to your needs

This is the most important thing. Not taking your needs into account is like sailing blind. If you know how you will use the deck, it is easier to define the dimensions. You need to know the maximum number of people it will accommodate. Also, the events to be hosted. Will the patio host feasts? It's up to you to determine the dimensions of the terrace.

Focus on functionality

This is about the equipment to be installed. During the installation of the terrace, you should know what furniture is to be installed. This will prevent the patio from being cluttered with unnecessary furniture. The notions of living space and safety should not be dismissed out of hand. It is very important to facilitate the movement of people even when the furniture and elements are installed. 

An important tip

You should pay attention to the reference bases. It is best to leave 1 to 1.5 metres between the table and the unoccupied chairs. The corridor between the patio door and the table must be at least 1 metre wide.
