This outdoor living space features a pavilion over the patio with ample lighting and ceiling fans. The stairs leading up to the patio have embedded landscaping lighting, making this a perfect spot for evening entertaining.
Paper lantern lights hang at staggered heights from the exposed ceiling beams in this covered patio. A jute area rug, rustic wood coffee table and driftwood sunburst mirror add texture and warmth to the space.
No matter the weather, this covered patio is a great spot for lounging. A ceiling fan allows the homeowners and their guests to cool down during the hotter months. There's even a nearby pool for enjoying a swim.
This contemporary covered patio makes for more effective nighttime cooling, allowing the area to stay cooler on average than non-shaded areas. The best areas for permanent shade structures are where you want to create an outdoor room — like a patio or deck — or any space that you want to use for outdoor living.
The abundance of living space is only part of the appeal for this outdoor covered patio. Strong architectural elements and lavish interior design, including the cathedral ceilings, concrete floors and custom fireplace, create a stunning living space.
This outdoor room was created below the addition that connects the main house to the garage. Along the perimeter of the patio pockets of plantings and stone pavers help to blend the space with the natural surroundings.
Durable concrete pavers, a custom dining set with a planter trough running down the center, outdoor art by Kim Chesney and graphic, cool wicker chairs give a chic, international attitude to this outdoor space.
