Can you tell me if this is a stained concrete or is it an outdoor tile? I'm looking for a simlar material for a clean outdoors for a cooler climate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In this example a pair of steel beams and columns in L-shaped formations support a canopy over a sunken seating area. Placing the beams past the walkway on the left brings this path into the realm of the house, without needing to define it with walls or roof overhead.
