Plus they can be a great source for sunlight. But you probably don't want your view open all the time, so window treatments are often needed for the times when you do need privacy, light control and even insulation.

The second decision, in my opinion, is whether you want to have the patio heater just in one place and then not worry about it for years and years or have the versatility to move it where the heat is needed for any particular occasion. There are basically 3 types of patio heaters to consider. One uses propane which means from time to time you will need to fill the tank. The one thing to consider with a propane powered patio heater is the time when the party is just starting to liven up and you run out of propane in the tank. Bummer, now you have to either bring the party indoors (which there might not be enough room), don jackets (maybe some didn’t bring any) or the party breaks up because some are getting chilly and start toward home. I am not trying to talk you out of a propane patio heater, just want you to be aware of all of the possibilities if making this choice.

This is ideal because it probably will be the cheapest to operate and you don’t have to worry about it running out of fuel, that is unless there is a major earthquake near you and gas lines erupt. Of course, if that’s the case, running your patio heater is not the main concern then, or at least I hope it’s not. But then, if you make the choice to go with a natural gas operated patio heater, you lose the flexibility of placing the heater at different places depending on a particular function.

In that case you can lay porcelain or stone tiles over the top, to give an elegant finish to your patio. It's a good idea to use tiles with a textured finish, to reduce the risk of slipping when the tiles are wet. You can use other materials such as sandstone, limestone, granite or slate, as long as they are properly sealed. If you often have freezing conditions over winter, then ensure the tiles don't absorb high levels of water, or they might crack. Be aware, too, that existing cracks in the concrete may expand and cause the tiles on top to crack as well.

Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.

Patio awnings allow you to enjoy the sun's warmth without becoming burned by the sun, and provide protection against passing showers too. Patio awnings, canopies or shades are a very useful addition to your outdoor comfort.

While not all of the large businesses located in Kansas City have patio areas for employees or clients, many, especially hotels, do. Concrete patios are an essential area for many area hotels, as it gives the guests a place to settle in for quiet during their stay. Often, the landscaping works around the concrete patio area, and is usually practically maintenance free, which means it will not require a great deal of continual expense. Many colleges and hospitals are also adding patio areas for visitors as well.

Pergolas are made with a flatted top with a shape that is vertical to straight sides and can be small to cover up a walkway or large enough to cover a patio or deck area. On the other hand, the arches are generally used as fence gate or over walkways.

The stones may be set in mortar or they may be dry laid. If dry laid, the joints can get quite wide due to the uneven edges of the stones, but can be filled with sand or a material that hardens over time. The edges of the patio are usually curvilinear or straight, but they can also be designed so that the outer stone edges become the patio edge.
