Maintenance-free, grapevine can be threaded through any lattice work you might have outside or you can use white LED lights and intertwine them with the grapevines. Add sprigs of holly, juniper or boxwood to make your patio even more festive!

Fortunately, concrete patio design can be developed in such as way as to make the most of these smaller spaces. Concrete can be made to look like stone, slate or marble, and it can be polished or given the appearance of large or small bricks. Pre-cut pavers are also an excellent choice for a patio, and homeowners can enjoy the sensation of an Italian Palazzo or woodsy retreat in their own backyard. A good concrete company can give suggestions and offer examples of their work.

The second decision, in my opinion, is whether you want to have the patio heater just in one place and then not worry about it for years and years or have the versatility to move it where the heat is needed for any particular occasion. There are basically 3 types of patio heaters to consider. One uses propane which means from time to time you will need to fill the tank. The one thing to consider with a propane powered patio heater is the time when the party is just starting to liven up and you run out of propane in the tank. Bummer, now you have to either bring the party indoors (which there might not be enough room), don jackets (maybe some didn’t bring any) or the party breaks up because some are getting chilly and start toward home. I am not trying to talk you out of a propane patio heater, just want you to be aware of all of the possibilities if making this choice.

In that case you can lay porcelain or stone tiles over the top, to give an elegant finish to your patio. It's a good idea to use tiles with a textured finish, to reduce the risk of slipping when the tiles are wet. You can use other materials such as sandstone, limestone, granite or slate, as long as they are properly sealed. If you often have freezing conditions over winter, then ensure the tiles don't absorb high levels of water, or they might crack. Be aware, too, that existing cracks in the concrete may expand and cause the tiles on top to crack as well.
