Covered patios are a great amenity. It’s like being indoors when you’re outdoors. Most call it an outdoor living room, which basically it is. Covered patios usually have comfortable seating (couches, chairs) which is perfect for lounging. Other features usually include stone fireplaces, BBQ areas, wet bars and sometimes even a plasma mounted up on the wall. Above are 16 covered patio spaces I found on Houzz.com. Enjoy!

HOMES OF THE RICH POPULAR TOPICS

    My favorite feature that shows up in high-end Floridian homes is glass that rises from the basement between the archways to protect guests from the wind – a necessity if you’re on the ocean or Intracoastal. Maurice Fatio did this with some of his homes and Jeff Smith has done it for several of his. Thierry Despont also incorporated a flawless design for the foyer of the former Kimmel residence in Palm Beach. The huge glass and wood doors went into the basement providing a true “Florida Room.” So STUNNING!

    I guess in Florida we shall refer to the porch as a ‘Loggia’

    12 and 16 are my favorites in this list, although #16 needs more stylish furniture.
