Hang Lighting and Plants from a Patio Pergola  

If you love to entertain outdoors, pergolas allow you to create a unique covered patio. Besides providing cool relief from the hot sun, pergolas come in handy for decorating your set-up. For example, you can add extra visual interest by adding pendant lighting or hanging plants.  

Consider a Floating Roof   

A floating roof design will give your space a weather-resistant, modern, and sophisticated look. You can also add recessed lighting, fans, luxe sofas, and a fire pit to make the space a fully functional indoor-outdoor room.  

Install a Freestanding Glass Pavilion  

Designed to protect you from the elements while providing a free-flowing sightline, a frameless glass structure will work well for both rural and urban settings. This outdoor structure will provide all the creature comforts of an indoor living area in the heart of your yard.

Use Trees to Create a Shaded Area  

The right trees and shrubs can provide much-needed shade and privacy to your patio area. Hire a professional landscaping expert to help you bring your contemporary garden to life with unique patio cover styles and planting ideas.  

Cover Up with Umbrellas or Retractable Awnings  

Patio covers don’t necessarily have to be stationary. Consider umbrellas to create shady pockets for entertaining and lounging. Umbrellas and retractable awnings provide shade and protection from the sun and rain while adding flexibility to your design.  

Add a Colorful Canopy  

Canopies allow for some flexibility and the chance to customize your garden for a particular occasion or event. For example, you can incorporate bright colors and plenty of flowers and add various patterns to give your space a bright theme.  

Choose furniture in a similar style and design to that found indoors to create a relaxation area that feels like a continuation of your home.

Hi, I’m Don Powell! I am the 4th generation of the Powell family that started Van Nuys Awning. I am an IFAI Master Craftsmen, served on the board of the WCPA and now CEO of Van Nuys Awning. I worked my way through Van Nuys Awning learning how to install, design and manufacture awnings for the last 48 years. I handle the sales for most of our large and corporate accounts. I take great pride in our client’s happiness and successful installation and manufacturing to our client’s design. One step I take to maintain our company’s quality and client’s request will align is to personally oversee each project’s work order. Thanks for taking time to view, read, and consider working with Van Nuys Awning.
