One thing that's very important is to consider how much space you have available on your patio. After all, a fire pit puts out a lot of heat, and if you only have a small patio, the last thing you need is a huge fire pit taking up lots of space and making the patio feel like the inside of a volcano. So in that situation you would only need a small, simple fire pit. Then you can place it in the middle of the seating area, for effect and warmth, and people can enjoy it without roasting.
An awning can be either fixed or retractable. A fixed awning, as its name suggests, stays in the same position all the time. It is usually some type of shade cloth fixed to a permanent frame of steel or aluminium. Retractable awnings can be swiftly stowed away, and are available in either powered or manually operated versions. In climates where permanent awnings must be dismantled at the approach of winter and erected again in spring, retractable awnings, which can be left in their cassette all year round, are especially useful.
But such incidents are rare and we should not be controlled by external forces. We could always install a burglar alarm system. Having a trained guard dog is another way of keeping the place safe.
I'm not telling you how to design your deck or patio, but I want to give you things to think about during your decision-making process. Then you design it - you know what you will enjoy.
