Global Inspiration for Your Custom Patio Cover

Posted on October 19, 2018

San Antonio Custom Patio Cover

One patio cover does not fit all, which is why at Paradise Decks & Spas, we never offer just one type of patio cover. Instead, we take your ideas of what you'd like for your patio and create a custom design. For instance, many San Antonio homeowners like for their patios to feel like an escape, something that can transport them to another place entirely. You can do this by infusing global inspirations into your patio design, and your patio cover is part of that. Here are a few ideas:

Mediterranean Warmth

The Mediterranean is known for long summers and sunny weather, something those of us in San Antonio can relate to. It's also known for beautiful waters and cultures full of stunning color and design. However, the best Mediterranean themed patios actually use light colors to enhance the sunshine around it and the natural beauty. A pale stucco patio cover might be what you need, or a canopy made up of sturdy wicker fabric held up by the structure of the cover. Another option that's not quite a patio cover, but helps to add shade and works beautifully in Mediterranean themed patios is a pergola.

Western European Villa

Already, San Antonio is full of aesthetic influences from Mexico and, by extension of history, Spain, so this is a popular choice. When we think of modest buildings in a beautiful villa scene in places like Spain or Italy, one thing that stands out is the roof. Often it's red with that signature rounded tile. You can incorporate that tile not just in the roof of your home but in the roof of your patio cover. This can work both for single slope patio covers or traditional gables.

Asian Getaway

Rich, deep colors are perfect for creating an Asian-infused getaway for your patio. Reds, greens, golds, and sometimes purples can all be found in these designs. Much like Mediterranean inspired patio covers, a canopy could be the right choice, though you'll want to be sure that you choose a fabric that can stand up to the weather. Another option is to design your patio cover in a pagoda shape, again with tiled roofs. Add to the Asian vibes by adding furniture or planting flowers that fit with the theme.
