Most of us have patio at our places and still we are unable to sit outside because of unexpected rain or too much heat. In order to make sure that you would be able to enjoy all types of weather outside with your friends and family, it is recommended to have patio covers installed. It will also help you to give a new look to backyard. However, it has been observed that many people find it difficult when they are looking for new ideas to install patio covers because most of the people have traditional kind of covers. Therefore, in this article, I will mention new ideas to install these covers.
My first idea is to use arbor as a patio cover which is usually made up of wood or metal. It is a simple framework or a structure supported by vertically erected columns.It can also used to support the growth of plants like orchids that require support while growing. The top part of arbor should be a matrix of lightweight beams. You can even plant or hang creepers and orchids on the structure, once the arbor has been installed and the roof is erected properly. However in this case, you cannot use patio while it is raining as arbor patio cover does not protect the patio from rain. Therefore, it is recommended to use light weight compatible roof to prevent the raining from falling on the patio.
My second idea is to cover the whole patio in a way that it would look like a room with huge French doors and roof totally cover up. It may sound weird but you can use this type of patio in any kind of weather and you can even put your electronics devices such as computers or televisions in this type of patio.
My third and last idea is to use “sail away” method to install patio covers which is very unconventional approach. Generally sail is a piece of canvas which is hundred percent waterproof and it can be attached to supporting pools or can be tied to the top of arbor to make your perfect patio. As sail can be easily be tied up and can be removed, it can be a very convenient way to have a portable patio covers anytime you would want. You can also use this technique to have patio umbrellas and by choosing different colors and sizes in umbrellas, you can make it look very different and attract.
