Secondly, living in such homes allows you to gather large groups to have a party. You are never short of space. You do not need to book or rent a restaurant or a dining hall to hold a function. You can have it right at your doorstep. You could also have a barbecue with all the lights switched off, except perhaps for a little lamp or camp fire.
A patio is a great place to cultivate plants and flowers. Buy or make containers and choose some attractive plants for your patio area. Golden Cane palms do well in large pots and ferns are very attractive in hanging baskets. If you want some colour, look out for Camellias, Begonias, Kangaroo Paws, and Bromeliads. All do well in containers and patios. So long as you remember to water your containers and baskets, you can look forward to a summer of greenery.
Although I've seen it done, I don't think you want to be carrying trays of drinks down several steps. One step down to the patio, and another step or two from the patio to the backyard, is acceptable. Any more than that, and you should build a deck, or build a platform under the patio, because you will then have the ability to adjust the height of the deck or patio to the conditions.
If you need something cozy for an intimate dinner under the stars, you'll find a number of table top patio heaters available. Typically if you are looking to warm a large area like a covered patio, you should look at the freestanding models. If you have a really large space to warm, you'll also find a number of energy efficient commercial grade patio heaters with propane, natural gas, and electric type fuel sources.
