Welcome to our gallery featuring a large selection of beautiful patios in stone, tile, or wood. Each patio in this collection is covered, which lends them certain benefits over uncovered patios.
A patio consists of a paved outdoor space adjoining to the residence used for dining or recreation. Depending on the size of your patio, you may be able to include large architectural elements, like the fireplace in the image above.
The above patio is a lovely two-sectioned patio consisting of a fireside wicker seating area and a dining area complete with an outdoor kitchen, which is tucked almost out of view behind the massive fireplace. Archways act as portals to the sunny extension of the patio, which has a fantastic waterfront view and is perfect for sunbathing.
Many iterations will contain large ceiling fans to help keep the hot air circulating and prevent the covered or sheltered area from feeling stuffy. Covered patios attached to the residence often don’t get the benefit of a cool breeze, so the fans are absolutely necessary, and a great boon.
Throughout this gallery, you’ll see a number of different styles, including Old World Spanish style patios, patios with archways and columns, small, intimate patios in the midst of lush gardens, or even more modern elevated terrace patios encased in glass balustrades.
You may also notice the types of furniture that are most popular for patios, like wicker seating or glass-topped dining and coffee tables.
Keep an eye out for the more luxurious patios that turn an outdoor space into a three-season entertainment room filled with all the soft fabrics and colors typically associated with indoor spaces.
We hope that by perusing this luxurious gallery of covered patios, you’ll be inspired to renovate and spend a little more time outside, enjoying the fresh air this summer.
This incredibly spacious covered patio features a small outdoor kitchen, a large formal dining table and a cozy wicker seating area in front of a massive plaster and stone fireplace.

This open air covered patio rests in front of seamless windows and faces an inner courtyard in natural thin-plank wood decking. An inner courtyard is an elegant way to spend time outside while still enjoying utter privacy and avoiding any strong winds.

From a little further away, we can see the second pergola of this patio, which isn’t as covered in foliage as the one to the rear of the image.

This lovely covered patio is also a three-season room with removable glass. The immense stone fireplace is both a statement piece and serves the function of providing warmth and atmosphere on a cold day. This patio is elevated and looks out on the forest, which gives it the air of a luxurious treehouse.
This simple but elegant stone mosaic patio is covered by a warm-toned natural wood pergola.

As light shines down on this pergola, it creates an eye-popping shadow pattern on the wicker dining set and living room seating arrangement.
