Commercial concrete patio design is an often overlooked area of innovation and beauty. While not all of the large businesses located in Kansas City have patio areas for employees or clients, many, especially hotels, do. Concrete patios are an essential area for many area hotels, as it gives the guests a place to settle in for quiet during their stay. Often, the landscaping works around the concrete patio area, and is usually practically maintenance free, which means it will not require a great deal of continual expense. Many colleges and hospitals are also adding patio areas for visitors as well.
One thing that's very important is to consider how much space you have available on your patio. After all, a fire pit puts out a lot of heat, and if you only have a small patio, the last thing you need is a huge fire pit taking up lots of space and making the patio feel like the inside of a volcano. So in that situation you would only need a small, simple fire pit. Then you can place it in the middle of the seating area, for effect and warmth, and people can enjoy it without roasting.
Patios are generally designed to catch the sun. Not necessarily, in warmer areas, the heat of the midday sun, but enough sun to give you that good sense of relaxation and well being that we get when exposed to lots of vitamin D.
Over recent years pergolas have become more popular as ornamental additions to the home. As they are free standing ornamental structures with covered roofs supported by 4 column pillars you can use them for shade from the summer heat, sleeping quarters, study area, entertaining guests. Most pergolas are constructed in spacious back gardens. Many pergolas are attached to the outside of the home. Some pergolas can be marquee sized when they are located in mansions.
