6 Resin Patio Ideas & Design for Outdoor Project
Design flexibility is an exceptional feature that makes the use of resin highly preferred for the transformation of outdoor spaces. You can do so much with a resin patio. It offers a stylish and more aesthetic alternative to other conventional patio, block paving or decking styles.
You have total control over your installation and can incorporate designs, motifs, logos and various patterns into your resin patio. That is to say you can truly own your patio and customise it the way you want. Your resin can be tailored to suit your property either to blend or create a contrast. This is a huge advantage of having a resin patio over other conventional patios, paving and slabs.
Is Resin Great for Patios?
Resin bound patios are great for almost any type of outdoor project. They are also very durable and do not scuff, swell, sink or crack. They show great resistance to the growth of weeds, moss and algae. When installed using UV stable resin, they will maintain their colours without fading even on exposure to sunlight or harsh weather conditions.
Resin patio surfaces are also smooth, flexible and permeable allowing water to drain through after rainfall - thus a more eco-friendly option. Additionally, they are easy to maintain. Regular sweeping with a stiff brush and an occasional power wash is enough to keep your patio in top condition. Their surfaces despite being smooth are also anti-slip thanks to the addition of crushed glass during installation. The surface smoothness of a resin patio makes it easily accessible for persons with mobility issues who can drive their wheelchairs and mobility scooters on it without any issues.
Below are some resin patio design options which you may consider for your upcoming project.
1. Resin Patio To Replace An Old Worn Out Block Paving
You can use a resin patio to replace existing block paving. While block paving is beautiful when installed, over time, cracks begin to appear and they begin to swell or sink. Also, you may see weeds beginning to sprout up making the place untidy.
Here you have the option of doing a complete overhaul by replacing the entire brick work with a resin patio or replacing the tired block paving with a resin installation.
For a large patio space, you can create a stunning and elegant installation by blending the brick work with resin patio using the right colour aggregates. For instance, a red brick can be blended with pale cream stones and then complemented with a darker matte edging. One huge advantage of installing a resin patio is that it can be easily adapted to fit a variety of spaces and curved areas. They can also be used for creating pathways and steps leading up to your patio.
2. Smooth, Flat Resin Patios With Ease of Access
Resin patios can be used to create accessible paths for wheelchairs, bikes, buggies and scooters. This is one difficulty with other conventional patios and driveway types made with bricks, gravel and concrete.
In the installation of resin patios, an anti-slip agent is incorporated to prevent trips and falls while also remaining very smooth.
Additionally, the porous surface of the resin allows water to pass through preventing flash flooding, and water pools on the surface which can result in weakness of the patio and cracks over time.
3. Creating An Easy To Maintain Patio With Your Garden
There are resin garden ideas where you can install a resin patio alongside grassy areas, raised beds and decking. These patio areas created with a garden can be used for water features, entertainment spots, etc. and would not really require you to do so much to keep them in good condition.
By laying a resin patio alongside your garden, you will not have to worry about unwanted plant growth as may be seen between paving slabs. The issue of water causing cracks as it washes away the cement in a concrete paving is also eliminated.
4. Stylish Resin Patio Finishes
You can make a statement with an eye-catching resin patio installation within your outdoor space to create a unique colour scheme. There is so much you can do with a resin installation. The colour choices available are limitless while you can also blend various stone sizes of different textures to create a unique combination for your resin patio.
For instance, you can create a classic with natural stones or blend aggregates of gold and silver stones for a lustrous and colourful shimmer.
5. Resin Patio Ideas For Your Pool Area In A Modern Home
If you have a modern property and you desire a contemporary, sleek and elegant outdoor space, resin is a great choice. Resin is a fantastic choice for pool surrounds, as a result of its permeability, low-maintenance requirement and slip resistance property.

For an outdoor pool area, you need calm aggregate stones which will create a wonderful contrast with the fresh blue water, rich green lawns and colourful plants.
