If you have a picture or symbol that is meaningful to you, then you can use these tiles to recreate it.

Natural stone comes in many styles, including flagstone, quartz and yorkstone to name a few. The downside to natural stone is it can be expensive because it is mined and it usually needs to be shipped in.

The type of home design you have will play a major role in what type of natural stone you'll want to go for. For example, if your home has a lot of limestone used throughout its design, then consider using limestone to create your patio.

5. Poured Concrete

If you want to incorporate several designs for your patio, then consider doing a mixture of materials such as concrete slabs or paving slabs.

Consider a round design for the center, and use mosaic tiles for the flooring. When it comes to options, you have no shortage of them, but don't incorporate more than five different designs unless you are certain it will blend together well.

No matter what type of patio you choose, stay warm this winter with a patio heater.
