Good Question: Covered Patio Ideas for Backyard (Should you Attach?) Hi Everybody! Micah, the Outdoor Living Guy here for another Tuesday Tip for you. I like this one a lot and I think it’s going to really help you when considering covered patio ideas for backyards. Many people ask where should I attach a covered structure to my house?

My recommendation? I do not recommend attaching a patio cover to a home. Go with a detached covered structure. When you are thinking about your outdoor space, you do not always have to attach a structure to your house. By detaching it, it serves as an amazing destination. You can have a Fireplace, Outdoor Kitchen & Bar, Dining Area, a beautiful Fire Pit w/seatback seat walls and an outdoor living space covered. You can see all kinds of covered structures in our website portfolio, but we are going to show you some in this video.

Why detached? See the pathway along the kitchen window? By being a detached structure, it gives more room to the outdoor kitchen and to furniture around the fireplace wall. It also allows the flow of foot traffic out the back door through the outdoor living room & kitchen around to the other side of the bar . . . and that’s the benefit – a more wide-open space.

Hardscape pavers and custom wood decking around & under the hot tub, are the foundation in this outdoor space. The detached structure is right outside the sliding glass door with plenty of room for the double-sided fireplace, putting green and hot tub . . . perfect for family fun most of the year.

From the top of the stairway, choose your destination. Is it a spa night? A quick game of mini-golf, or barbecue by the fire? Detached structures draw you out into your landscape.

And who can resist this magnificent detached structure, Tuscan Style, boasting flair & function. A large bar with outdoor kitchen, and sprawling living room make it one of our favorites. It resembles a mini Tuscan village with its extra kitchen amenities under the upper deck, a large dining area, and a compelling fire pit with seatback – seatwalls. Bravo!

Or how about a detached patio cover over a swim-spa and kitchen bar Island? Paired with a retractable awning over the dining area, it makes them a dynamic duo in shade & weather protection. Hip, hip, hooray for Covered Structures.

And these dog lover homeowners, fenced in the detached covered structure for their guests and built a dog run for their guest’s dogs on the outside of the fence. Now both guests and dogs party alongside one another. Clever homeowner idea, eh?

We all love spending time outdoors and having an outdoor structure to go out into is even better. Especially for food prep, table games, or shade seekers.

Another amazing property boasts an attached structure on the top level of the landscape and a detached structure on the lower level, at the bottom of the waterfall. It’s beautiful design cause some heavy sighs and motivating thoughts of SOMEDAY.

As we finish up, the crème de la crème outdoor structure . . . Now the man of this house sleeps many a night in this outdoor living room. And why not? It has ALL THE AMENITIES, after all isn’t that the point? Transitioning from indoor to out as if it’s another room of the house? We like that – what about you? Isn’t it about time for an attached or detached covered structure of your own?

If you have the right space for it, detached structures in my opinion are the way to go.
