Extending your usable square footage with the addition of restaurant patio space? Though property boundaries and layout will affect your final patio dimensions, looking to a few general sizing rules of thumb can help you ensure a productive build and avoid overspending.
Spaces that are too small will feel cramped, crowding customers and creating an obstacle course for wait staff that could result in embarrassing incidents. Overlarge patios, on the other hand, can make your dining space feel less intimate and suck up build funds that could be better used for standout features such as outdoor fireplaces and integral shelter.
Hitting the Sweet Spot
These general sizing guidelines can help you decide on a size that’s just right in terms of space planning. Just be sure, before planning, to check with your local building department to avoid design blunders, checking into permit needs, setback requirements, and other rules and regs that could affect your restaurant’s final patio size and location.
Tips for Enhancing Patio Feel
Puzzling out key sizing parameters? The outdoor living experts at Denver Pergola Systems can help with covering the useable space you have. Contact us to learn more about boosting your revenue stream with the addition of a restaurant patio today.

For outdoor lovers dreading the cold, properly planned outdoor living area designs can help you extend the season. With the right design elements and features, comfortable outdoor living in the colder weather is possible – sans the extra sweater.
6 Ways to Cozy Up to the Fall & Winter Outdoor Living Season:
1.Kick up the heat.
From the permanent to the portable, warm things up with built-in or portable gas or electric fireplaces and fire pits. Want to ward-off heat loss? Overhead infrared heaters emit radiant heat, (think of the sun’s rays), providing highly efficient warmth. A single 1500-watt heater utilizes only around 30-cents/hour in electricity!
2.Shed a little light on things.
When the clocks ‘fall back’ you’ll need additional lighting for your outdoor space. Create the right look with built-in, multi-temperature friendly LEDs, considering dimmable options for added flexibility. For detached structures, don’t forget solar path lighting and spotlights to help light the way.
3.Let the sunshine in (and keep the snow out).
With a covered patio, you’re much more likely to stay outside when temperatures drop. And with the 170-degree rotational flexibility of Arcadia adjustable pergolas, you can take advantage of every weather facet. Close louvers to contain warmth and snuff out snow and rain - or open them on fair weather days to bask in the sun’s warmth.
4.Screen for trouble.
Motorized, retractable screens and curtains let you enjoy the view or contain the warmth, depending on the weather. Block the breeze and gain added privacy and pest protection, or let the light shine in with the click of a button with the latest in ‘smart’ operation and weather sensing technology.
5.Up the coziness factor.
Skip cold metal and plastic furniture for upholstered options, bringing indoor comforts outdoors with pillows and throw blankets. Add rugs over cold concrete and decking to keep toes toasty.
6.Don’t give up on watersports.
Hot tubs offer year-round relaxation – but feel especially good when temperatures drop.
Don’t give up on outdoor entertaining just because the days are growing cooler. Create an outdoor living space that’s functional year-round with the help of Denver Pergola Systems today.

Summer is fading and the fall is on its way. Unfortunately, given the cooler, more inviting outdoor temperatures, many forego the protection of patio sun shades and sunblock. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, however, last far beyond those days of fun in the summer sun.
There’s More to a Sunburn than Heat
UVB rays, which provide heat, do indeed weaken in the fall and winter as the earth spins away from the sun. However UVA rays reach the earth with any visible light, and are present 365 days a year. This often leads to necessary sun protection going overlooked when temperatures drop.
Many Factors Affect Your Exposure to UV Rays…
Protect Yourself & Enjoy Your Time Outdoors
Awareness of prime exposure times, conditions, and locales is key. But while sunscreen and protective gear are a great precaution, UV can penetrate most fabrics, from cotton shirts to inexpensive patio umbrellas and canopies. The only surefire way to prevent sun overexposure is with reliable shade – and not all shade is created equally.
The Ultimate in Weather Protection
Shade is relevant to the angle of the sun, making the size and orientation of sun shelter key. A feature which the fully-customizable Arcadia pergola provides in spades, given its 170-degrees of louver adjustability. Whether you’re enjoying a bit of Mother Nature’s free vitamin D via fully open louvers, or seeking shelter from the sun or rain, the Arcadia’s easy, on-demand adjustability provides just the protection you need. Optional motorized screens and curtains offer additional weather protection and privacy, for a fully-customized outdoor experience that’s second-to-none.
Don’t fear the power of the sun – harness it – beating the winter blues while still maintaining comfort and safety. Open the door to a better outdoor living experience. Contact Denver Pergola Systems today.
