A patio came from the Spanish word that means "courtyard", "forecourt", "yard". It is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation that adjoins a residence and is typically paved. In Florida for example a Patio means now more than ever the Social Area by excellence of the house. It is considered as an extension and uses to include roofed structures similar to a pergola, which provides protection from sun and rain.
The social area is a space in the house where you gathering with friends and family. This perfect gathering place must has comfortable furniture, adequate amount of light (natural during day and artificial during the night), anything close to a kitchen or bar where you can get the snacks, foods and drinks for your guests and off course a nice shade area that will be the structural part of the backyard. Usually Patios are a better social area because they can get more people in, than a regular indoor room. But they are even better because the patios are usually surrounded by nature, landscaping or any kind plants.
The feeling of been in contact with plants and nature make the Patio the favorite space option for sharing in family. Breathing fresh air and feeling relax is an attribute that patios offer to everyone. Here in Florida the most trending in home decor is to have a space for a shade and an outdoor kitchen in the patio to meet every week with family and friends and enjoy the outdoors at home.
