Create The Perfect Patio


Identify how you will use your patio

To help you identify and construct the perfect patio, you will need to think about a few things first.

Consider the below when it comes to designing your Perth patio:

  • Do you want your patio to create a seamless transition between house and garden?
  • Do you want your Perth patio to encompass a sunny spot or be completely shaded?
  • Would you prefer paving, wooden decking or concrete for your patio floor?
  • Will your patio be large enough to have outdoor furniture without looking cramped?
  • Will it house an outdoor kitchen?
  • Will it be used by children? Is it safe and secure enough for their use, and
  • Of course, will your prime usage be for personal relaxation or entertaining?

Read on to find the best patio design for your needs.

Flat patios

Flat patios are a great way to weatherproof an outdoor area, between carports and front doors or down the side of homes. However, they’re often too hot to successfully entertain under.

At One Stop Patio Shop, we’re often tasked with turning flat patios into more effective and popular gable patios with our Perth patio renovation services.

Gable patios

Gable Patio In Perth

Gable patios are an increasingly popular design, proving the perfect choice for many Perth homes.


  • They increase light, ventilation and space within a Perth patio,
  • Their high ceilings (an 18-degree pitch) are fantastic for reducing the heat in the Australian climate, and
  • Are well suited to both classic and contemporary home exterior designs.

It’s these features which may make a gable Perth patio, the perfect patio for many homes, maybe yours as well.
