The Ultimate Guide to Patio Cover Sizing for Your Okanagan Home

Creating the perfect outdoor living space in the Okanagan region involves many considerations, but one of the most crucial is selecting the right patio cover size.

Whether you’re envisioning a cozy spot for morning coffees or a grand area for entertaining, this guide will help you navigate the options to find the perfect fit for your needs.

Understanding Patio Cover Sizes

The size of your patio cover can dramatically affect the usability and ambiance of your outdoor space. A 20 x 20 (400 sq. ft.) patio cover is roughly the size of a standard two-car garage. This would provide ample space for an outdoor kitchen, dining area, and a lounging spot, with enough room left for unobstructed movement and entertainment. Smaller sizes like 15′ x 15′ or 10′ x 20′ are ideal for intimate dining areas or a shaded retreat in the garden. So, to answer this question you have to ask yourself how much space you want. 

Choosing the Right Size for Your Space

The best patio cover size for your space requires a careful assessment of your outdoor space and how you plan to use it. Do you have a deck, or a concrete pad you want to cover? If so, you will want to cover these areas with additional overhang. 

Also, consider the activities you enjoy in your outdoor space — whether it’s hosting large gatherings, cooking outdoors, or simply relaxing in a shaded area with your fury friends. Measure the area where you plan to install the cover, keeping in mind any architectural features of your home that could influence the installation. This is the basis for your measurements moving forward.
