Some use glass mosaics and copper to produce a vintage look. Either way, metal fire pits will add significant aesthetic value to your patio. They are composed of many different materials, including steel, copper, slate, glass and even granite. You will easily find a style that matches your current patio decor.

Poinsettias are in season and their vibrant red, white or pink hues, combined with their green leaves, are enough to add color to any gray and dismal outdoor area. Go to your local supermarket or nursery and stock up on a few of these plants. You can keep them in containers or plant beds outside, but bring them back inside or cover them up if the outdoor temperatures get extremely cold or if a freeze is expected. Be sure to keep them away from pets though. Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to animals, but it's better safe than sorry!

There are electric patio heaters that can plug directly into an outlet (but not many, unless that outlet is dedicated just for this). When it is evident that the style and power needed is more than what can be plugged in, you have to consider the cost to have an electrician run wiring just for the patio heater. And with this type, you can also be strapped to where it can be placed to provide the heat you are looking for. Some are ceiling (or rafter) mounted and their base allows for some movement to direct heat to a specific spot.

Styles are abundant and can be even a central point for your patio, but you will pay a little more for that. Quality to me is king. Why purchase something I am going to need to replace soon and then have to pay even more for. I would rather put off getting one for a time to have the money needed to get the right one, then pay now and later and possibly even not have enough power to provide the heat I am looking for anyway.

Patio awnings allow you to enjoy the sun's warmth without becoming burned by the sun, and provide protection against passing showers too. Patio awnings, canopies or shades are a very useful addition to your outdoor comfort.

They should be straight and even. Yet because bluestone is not always cut properly at the quarry, the pieces are not exactly straight. If used as is, your joint lines will not be straight either.

The major advantage of purchasing online is selection. Most of the top internet retailers offer the top brands, like Hunter Douglas, Levolor, Bali, Graber Comfortex and Kirsch, at discount prices. If you are like me and have trouble buying without seeing, you can go to a traditional brick and mortar store. You can purchase your window treatments there or take the information back to your online search armed with more specific information.

LED lights are always a good choice because they are so energy-efficient. You don't have to get too Christmas-y for them to look good either. A few strands of simple white lights are enough to make any outdoor living space look elegant. There's a fine line between nice and overdone. Be sure to be reasonable about the amount of lights you use.

You have to consider all the pros and cons to choose the right material for your needs and situation. Wood can give these structures a natural and rustic look. You have the option to add paint or stain to change the appearance of the wood at any time. This material is usually more cost effective, but it will not last as long as vinyl or metal.
