The combination of patio deck designs allows you to make a wonderful flow from indoors to outdoors by using the different elements of wood, concrete or brick to create a special and stunning effect. The combination can be much more interesting than either just a deck or just a patio. The deck leads to your outdoor space while the patio is the actual area where you spent your time outdoors.
