As the weather becomes unpredictable, open patios and other outdoor areas become inaccessible. High temperature, direct sunlight, falling leaves, critters, and bugs and other harsh elements might make your patio stay less comfortable. With these minor inconveniences in the way, you might want to consider installing a patio cover. Here are 3 stylish patio cover designs you can consider for your outdoor area.
Made of vinyl fabric, this patio cover only needs strong pillars to which you can attach the four corners of the sail shade. A sail shade patio cover fits a modern home and gives an eclectic look to your outdoor room. This patio cover also gives you flexibility as you can adjust the sail shade’s slant and direction depending on where the sun’s rays are hitting your deck or patio.
Trellis with Vines
If you want a patio cover but hate the feeling of closing off your outdoor area entirely, a trellis filled with vibrant crawling vines will be a suitable option for you. The main structure is a pergola-like foundation with strong beams hospitable to plants crawling its way to dominate the entire area. Not only will this patio cover give you ample shade, it’ll also give a more calming effect to all of your five senses.
Solid Roof Extension
If you are planning on having a complete outdoor living room setup with a furniture set, nothing beats a solid roof overhead to keep the area functional, regardless of the weather. To keep the airy atmosphere, you can install a skylight to let enough sunlight filter in and provide natural light from above. Having a solid roof patio cover ensures your outdoor furniture lasts longer than if it were left entirely in the open and lets you enjoy your outdoor rooms for longer even when it’s raining.
