Patio enclosures have been around in one form or another for many years and come in a variety of guises ranging from full climatically controlled outdoor rooms complete with wall-to-wall glass, through to a simplified but equally useful timber or aluminium frame structure complete with insect screens. However it wasn’t until the last decade or so that they’ve really taken off. So why are more and more people opting to enclose their patios? Let’s take a look.
Insect and bug free
Just imagine the thought of being able to chill out in your outside space on a gorgeous sunny day enjoying everything that nature has to offer, all without being pestered by a plague of unwanted insects. This is what an enclosed patio can bring and it does it without sacrificing any of the aesthetics.
Bringing the outside in or vice versa!
Another benefit of a patio enclosure is that if fitted correctly it has the ability to look just like another room, or an extension of your home. As a result it can have the effect of bringing the outside in, or the inside out (whichever way you look at it!).
A well executed patio enclosure is very appealing to many people and as such just like a new kitchen can add value to your property. If done properly it can give you the illusion of more space, which may be exactly what future buyers are looking for.
Depending upon how you go about constructing your patio enclosure it can be used as a flexible space, especially if you fit retractable screens. If you really want to open up your area and enjoy outdoor living to the maximum, then at the touch of a button or the tug of a pulley, the protective screens can be raised up into the casing so your outdoor space really is an outdoor space. However if the glare of the sun or the insects get a little too persistent then simply drop the screens down and you have a separate area that can be enjoyed without fear of being eaten alive.
Cheaper alternative to an extension
If you want to increase your property area but can’t quite stretch to a full extension, then a patio enclosure gives you the best of both worlds. It gives you more options to make better use of your outside space and due to the increase in demand, prices are also extremely competitive.
More than just decorative
Nowadays patio enclosures can be fashioned from many different materials and can be tailor made to suit your requirements. As well as being made from components such as brushed aluminium, glass, timber and plastic, they’re also treated to withstand not just the sun, but the wind and the rain too. As a result they’re not just a practical option, but they’re incredibly versatile too. For example, if you have a large space then you may want to partition it off into a few smaller enclosures, or alternatively make one huge outdoor room.
