In the main seating area, a combination of an ample outdoor sectional and two cozy armchairs elevates the comfort around the firepit. Working within the boundaries of minimalism required curated, stylish decorations to achieve a sophisticated look without compromising the streamlined aesthetic. Therefore, all patio details follow the main neutral scheme of white, gray, and beige. An array of plush outdoor pillows provide decorative accents in coordinating colors. In addition, most elements boast rich yet subdued textures, offering just enough visual interest to make this covered patio design elegant and inviting.

The meticulously created layout comprises clear, well-defined spaces. With the addition of a kitchen & dining section, the outdoor living area became an welcoming centerpiece for any outdoor event. It’s also ready for entertaining, with an expandable table able to accommodate up to 8 people comfortably.  

Lighting also plays an important role in creating ambiance, depth, and texture. Low-voltage LED lighting is used as a primary illumination source throughout the covered patio. At the same time, a few decorative fixtures create an attractive atmosphere by tactically accentuating the environment.
