This outdoor patio is tucked beneath a large, deep veranda and includes a small outdoor kitchen, a dining area, and a seating area. Three ceiling fans keep air circulating and a small television in one corner is an added luxury.

Stone and tile steps lead down from screened French doors to a lower tile patio looking out on a man made lake. Thick ivy climbs up the stone support columns of the roof for a whimsical effect. The furniture consists of a wicker sofa, armchair, ottoman, coffee table, and a rocking chair. Wooden railings surround and enclose this elevated deck and patio.

While it may appear easy to build a patio, it’s not.  I saw my dad create a brick patio growing up and while it’s easy to fit bricks together, the tricky part is ensuring they’re level (and will stay level).

This stone tile patio features a number of different seating options, including a circular lounge chair and dark armchairs. This patio stretches the length of the building, tucked under panels. Sunlight filters through small gaps between the panels.

From a little further away, we can see the second pergola of this patio, which isn’t as covered in foliage as the one to the rear of the image. These two areas are perfect for different situations; the shaded pergola is best on a hot day when all you want is shade, and the uncovered pergola when sunshine is what you’d prefer.

This gorgeous covered terrace has a black wrought iron balustrade running between each brick arch. A symmetrical set of rocking chairs, patio chairs and ottomans against the bay windows provide elegance and style to this neutral relaxation area. A series of ceiling fans help keep air circulating on hot, still days.

Many iterations will contain large ceiling fans to help keep the hot air circulating and prevent the covered or sheltered area from feeling stuffy. Covered patios attached to the residence often don’t get the benefit of a cool breeze, so the fans are absolutely necessary, and a great boon.

This outdoor kitchen and patio, designed for entertaining, is accessible from the deck, basement and driveway of the home. The cedar pergola helps define the room and provide overhead lighting.

The focal point of this new outdoor kitchen is a wood-fired pizza oven imported from Italy. The 36-inch oven turned out to have a 52-inch base, so landscape architect Mark Schisler had to move the counters three feet to accommodate it. The oven is covered with a stone veneer, rather than real stone, to save more space.

The cedar ceiling of this stone-encased patio provides a stunning, rich tone to the more neutral stone walls and floor. An enclosed fireplace is contained within one of the walls, and a small opening provides a view out to the backyard, which includes a large stone waterfall.

As light shines down on this pergola, it creates an eye-popping shadow pattern on the wicker dining set and living room seating arrangement. Uncommonly, a television and entertainment center is kept in this outdoor area. This is probably due to the large shades that can be drawn to enclose the space in case of inclement weather.
