Backto All Posts

Is the outside space of your or your client’s home begging for a stylish renovation? Summertime is approaching and bringing with it intense heat and a lot of rain, but weather conditions should never deter a homeowner or business owner’s customers from enjoying their backyard patio or outdoor area.

From the ideal placement to the right design to the variety of specialty features, great patio cover ideas can truly elevate the look of your or your client’s entire outdoor living space. In addition to patio covers and freestanding awnings, there are many other options to consider.

 

Patio Cover Ideas for your Outdoor Space

Here is a list of patio cover ideas that can upgrade your or your client’s outdoor space:

  • 1) Minimalistic and Contemporary patio covers such as the Ankara model. These modern terrace pergolas offer functionality and elegance to the outside area of any home.

  • 2) A freestanding patio cover like the Forli is an excellent way to make a statement with beautiful fabric that matches your backyard color scheme.

  • 3) Part pergola and part awning, The Bergamo is a unique alternative patio cover. With the capacity to integrate LED lights into the frame, you can create a distinctive retractable patio cover.

  • 4) With a diamond shaped canopy, the Milan can be installed at almost any angle, creating an ideal balance between light and shade, all while adding unmatched beauty to your outdoor lifestyle!

  • 5) Build an outdoor room. The elegant frame of The Bolzano allows you to utilize built-in front panels with either guided shade or sliding glass panels to create a fully contained backyard covering.

  • 6) Focus on Fabric. If your home has a minimalist look and feel, the Siracusa is the perfect patio cover idea for you! The style of this awning gives more attention to the fabric of the patio cover itself, making it a sleek and stylish option.

  • 7) Take a simplistic approach. Does your backyard have some space challenges? Either pitched, flat, or angled, The Ferrara can fit in almost any outdoor space and can attach to existing homes or buildings.

 

A covered area to your backyard or patio that can withstand weather conditions (rain or shine!) is the perfect solution to extending an outdoor space and enhancing a home or business’s overall aesthetic. While the concept of adding a patio cover system seems simple, thinking through the multitude of patio cover ideas can become overwhelming without proper guidance.
