Perhaps there are elements on the exterior of your home that you hope to match exactly in your patio, such as a particular color or pattern. Or, it could be a simple as choosing a brick color that is complementary to the color of the shutters or the siding.
Next, pick a shape. Some homeowners are set on a rectangular, geometric pattern, while others prefer a more naturally flowing pattern.
