Patio cushions are another way that you can make a serious statement without breaking the piggy bank. You can think of patio cushions as an extra accessory for you to mix and match and a way to bring the indoor comfort of a La-Z-Boy to an outdoor space.
If willing to experiment and build a Patio Cover, hammer out questions as to why you need a Patio Cover, for what purpose, whether it would be painted or made with wood, prefabricated aluminum or PVC, and if permission is required from state or city authorities. Remember that a patio is an extension of the house, generally not more than 12 feet and single-storied. The patio can be fully covered or have no cover. No special skills are required for building a Patio Cover except co-coordinating your patience, dimension of area, number of wood or aluminum panels and material required.
Although I've seen it done, I don't think you want to be carrying trays of drinks down several steps. One step down to the patio, and another step or two from the patio to the backyard, is acceptable. Any more than that, and you should build a deck, or build a platform under the patio, because you will then have the ability to adjust the height of the deck or patio to the conditions.
Also, think about what sort of look you're trying to achieve on your patio. Do you want something stylish and elegant? Perhaps casual and simple? You might need to consider what color your patio furniture is, or the color of your house, so that your fire pit can blend in nicely. All of these factors are really a matter of preference, but you need to have some idea what you're looking for, or you'll never be able to choose.
