There are many ideas of patio design. In many designs of patio there are also covered patio designs. Literally, we can define it by the patio that covered by something or in other words, it is enclosed patio. Commonly, a covered patio is attached to the main home. But, it is not an impossible thing to see a covered patio detached from the main home. The reason of people to build covered patio is usually by its comfort. It is for sure that covered patio is safer than opened patio design. The covered patio is safe from sun light, rain, and everything which comes from nature.
Based on the explanation above, I will tell you about the covered patio designs in general. I mean I want to tell you about my two classifications of covered patio which are attached to main home patios and detached (to main home) patios. In this occasion, I wouldn’t discuss about budget because it is relative for everyone. So, my main focus is on its design.
Covered Patio Designs Attached to Main Home
This kind of patio, especially covered patio is the most used by homeowners. It must cause by some reasons. First is efficiency. To design this kind of covered patio designs you do not need additional space. It means this patio is perfect to apply if you don’t have large backyard. Moreover, the space left because of the efficiency can be utilized for other purposes, such us making garden, making pool, and etc. Another benefit of attached patio is its versatility. You are able to blend some purposes of space into one. Besides purposed as patio, it could be purposed as outdoor kitchen, veranda, outdoor dining area, and etc.
To design that all-in one patio, you must need large space. But at least, you have already had the half design and only need to accomplish another half. I will say this idea is brilliant because of the efficiency. Then, to complete the decoration, you can do the same as well as decorating indoor living space. A set of kitchen furniture contains of kitchen cabinet, kitchen stools, barbeque and etc. are required here. Then a set of outdoor dining furniture includes dining table and dining chairs will provide best comfort for outdoor diner. To complete the decoration, you would need sofa, lounge, and coffee table furnishing the patio.
With that furniture, that patio is ready to hold many occasions. Some addition can be applied to enhance entertaining ambience around the patio. To light the patio when it is used at night, hanging lamps could be enchanting to accompany you in the dark of the night. Of course it is not bright enough. Maybe you must use ceiling lamp as your main lighting feature. In the covered patio designs can also be added with television and fan in order to build amusing atmosphere.
Covered Patio Designs Detached to Main Home
In the other hand, covered patio is also possible to build detached from the main home. Well, it may only possible if you have large backyard. So, you can make or build something between the main home and the patio. It could be a landscape of garden, swimming pool, or another backyard application. The detached patio design is not as efficient as the attached patio. Yes it is also able to host any occasions and use for many purposes. But, you must build a ‘new house’ to make this idea comes true rather than just a half. It must starts from the very beginning.
Although it is not efficient enough, the detached patio offers something what the attached patio cannot offer. First is for sure you will feel like having new house, a mini house. By featuring the furniture inside the covered patio designs, you can spend your time to live inside it all day long. It could be more special if you have beautiful backyard landscape around it. Decorating the covered patio is actually easy. It depends on the size of patio actually. If you have small patio, you can make it more spacious by make it little bit opened. You can use glass wall to cover your patio. It provides better view, better lighting and better air circulation.
