It is usually some type of shade cloth fixed to a permanent frame of steel or aluminium. Retractable awnings can be swiftly stowed away, and are available in either powered or manually operated versions. In climates where permanent awnings must be dismantled at the approach of winter and erected again in spring, retractable awnings, which can be left in their cassette all year round, are especially useful.

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.

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.

A Kansas City company that specializes in concrete patio design will be able to offer clients in this thriving central Midwestern area a large selection of ideas, materials and prices for their patios. From retaining walls to polished flooring, concrete is no longer the material used strictly for garage floors and driveways. It is now a staple for many homeowners and businesses, and a company will be able to provide estimates and even pictures of previous work. Fountains, pavers, and poured concrete can be used to emphasize any garden spot beautifully, and the experts can help provide an outdoor transformation.

The traditional choice would be vertical blinds or curtains on a traverse rod, which emphasize the dramatic dimensions of your patio door while providing complete privacy and light control. Aluminum, vinyl or cloth vertical blinds come in any color'matching them to standard horizontal blinds on your other windows is a good idea'and can provide a chic, modern accent for any room. Vertical blinds also come in faux wood, which is a good match with wood or composite blinds. Another interesting option you might want to consider are ceiling mount verticals, which would eliminate a potentially annoying gap between the ceiling and the door frame.

There are electric patio heaters that can plug directly into an outlet (but not many, unless that outlet is dedicated just for this). When it is evident that the style and power needed is more than what can be plugged in, you have to consider the cost to have an electrician run wiring just for the patio heater. And with this type, you can also be strapped to where it can be placed to provide the heat you are looking for. Some are ceiling (or rafter) mounted and their base allows for some movement to direct heat to a specific spot.

Finally, after laying out a 1 inch conduit pipe on both edges, fill the area with paver base and by means of the pipes as a guide begin the screeding (or leveling) process using a long board. The conduits will later be removed and the trenches left behind filled in with sand.

But for some homes, the patio is still simply a concrete pad in the back yard. If you want to start using your patio for barbecues, outdoor dining or just as somewhere to sit and relax, then maybe the time has come to do something about the drab, old, and perhaps cracked concrete slab. Why not give it a makeover, and improve the value of your home at the same time?
