We completed our latest project for a client interested in classically inspired patio designs. Dark wood accents were used to contrast with the creams and golds selected to give the patio a look right out of a Roman estate. The leaf-blade fan keeps air circulated beneath the patio shade and ties the decor into the area's beautiful natural surroundings. We kept the patio’s ceiling clean and understated to draw attention to the stunning arches, columns, and décor. The stone fireplace and unique iron sculpture provides a visual focal point for the patio, promising warmth and beauty on many nights spent overlooking the clear water.
In my hunt for patio shade ideas to make our backyard entertaining areas a bit more livable despite the extreme desert sun, I stumbled upon the idea of a semi-permanent covered room created by canvas cloth and wood supports. This elegant pool deck area is made even more beautiful and versatile by multiple shaded areas throughout. Some are as simple as patio umbrellas opened over chaise lounges; however, I was really intrigued by the large patio canopy covering the spacious sitting area. Not only does it quarter off a room-like area for intimate conversation during parties, but it also provides welcome relief from the sun and rain. Even better, there are no building permits or contractors required to set up this shade.
To prevent our families from leaving lunch looking as red as the cranberry sauce, we began to shop for outdoor patio covers. We did some research but did not like the look of department store awnings, so we decided to create our own. With the season of giving and gatherings upon us, my husband and I decided that we needed to revamp our outdoor seating area. We love to host for holidays but have the misfortune of doing so in the heat of South Georgia. The patio awning that we created incorporates black posts that resemble historic gas lights and a striped cover that works to elongate the awning and subconsciously guide our guests’ views into the yard.
Aluminum patio covers are an easy and cheap way to provide shading and protection from storms for your outdoor living spaces. Not only are they economical but they are also quite versatile and pretty to look at. As a professional landscaper serving homes along the California coast, we constantly are asked for ways we think homeowners could maximize their backyard areas. In my opinion the best way to improve any outdoor entertaining area is to add a section with a patio roof. This is a pretty simple project for any contractor, and will drastically improve the versatility of your yard. Many people avoid using these spaces because of fear of the strong sun or getting wet in the rain, but both issues can be eliminated using patio cover ideas.
A patio with shade covers have many different types of styles available from classic to modern designs. We went through numerous patio roof ideas with our client before finally settling on the pavilion you see here. The elegant open-air structure was built with cedar for extra durability and features a matching a furniture set for the ultimate outdoor living space. Building a patio cover offers the best option for adding a seamless outdoor space and enhancing a home’s overall aesthetic. For this particular home remodel, our builders started with a home consultation to evaluate the outdoor space and better understand what our client was looking for.
It's amazing what a difference something as intrinsically simple as pergola covers makes, in transforming an urban rooftop. Go ahead and picture yourself, lounging up there, admiring streaks of sky between the clean, geometric pergola lines. Our patio pergola perfectly coordinates with the expansive planters, creating a cozy tucked in feeling that helps whisk you away in thought. It's a design element that embraces that wondrous sense of tranquility, admiring the skyline and getting lost in the ritual sounds of the city below. Whatever the weather or the time, whether it's the bright sun peeping through or the moon's soft shadows, from pinks to greys to indigos, there's always a magical cast.
