Create a Unique Outdoor Space with a Patio Cover

Posted on April 5, 2019

San Antonio Patio Cover

Patio covers play an integral part in the outdoor space of any San Antonio home. While they can often be overlooked by homeowners, they should actually be considered carefully when designing your outdoor space. Patio covers not only serve a practical purpose, protecting you and your guests from the harmful exposure of UVA/UVB rays, as well as from rainstorms, they also play a significant part in any design aesthetic. By using your patio cover to tie together the aesthetic of your outdoor space, you can create some really unique designs that will add value to your home.

Global Inspiration

We all love to travel and experience new cultures and designs - and there’s nothing better than bringing these back to incorporate into your own home. There are a myriad of different cultures you can draw inspiration from for your outdoor space, and your patio cover is no exception. These covers can be designed with a specific location or culture in mind. For example, incorporating a red tile is evocative of Spanish-style decor, and can be used to transport you and your guests into something that reminds you of a villa on the Azores. Having a light-colored or stucco patio cover ,will remind you and your guests of the mediterranean, and evoke the feelings of relaxation and calmness that is often associated with time on the Mediterranean Sea. Using patio covers in this way is great for tying the aesthetic of your home’s outdoor space together.

Time Period 

Much like how your patio cover can help transport you to a specific locale, it can also be used to remind you of a specific time period. Different time periods throughout history have used patio covers in their own way, and the way the patio cover of your own home is designed can be used to help portray a certain look.

Perhaps you wish to have an outdoor space that is similar to that of the 1960s, with clean lines and a more modern aesthetic. Or perhaps you were a fan of the colonial era, and would like to have a more intricate design of your patio cover. The type of cover that you design and install can help immerse you and your guests in the specific time period you desire, and can make your outdoor space that much more perfect for you.

Extension of Your Home 

Patio covers can also be used to recreate the look of the rest of your home. Outdoor living spaces are often used as an extension of an indoor living space. As such, it is often the best course of action to match the decor of the indoor space with the outdoor location. A patio cover can assist with such an endeavor. Our patio covers are custom made and designed, meaning we can match our creation to any pre-existing structure or aesthetic. This allows us to prevent that “tacked on” look that some patio covers have, allowing you to have an addition that blends seamlessly with the rest of your home.
