There are tile sealers available at any home builder store. If you want a shiny/wet finish, it is available. Or you can have a dry look. Check on the bottle for "look" of finish. Then apply with a clean sponge. It is really very easy. Good Luck.

Post Frame Accessories
Hi Mike, on our website: http://www.postframeaccessories.com/polycarbonate.html we carry corrugated polycarbonate sheets which are nearly identical to lexan. If you want the smooth look as in the photo, we can also arrange to get that for you although it is not currently available on our website.

Each project is unique. If you need help, you may want to hire a landscape architect. Good luck!

We did not seal the pavers. It had just rained before we took the photo. As far as I know, the slabs have never been cleaned. This was a spec house that we sold and we have not seen it since.

Did you build in a freestanding grill? Any tips on that?

It is a free standing gas grill. Since this was a spec house, we wanted a little more flexibility. The open space to the left of the grill was left so that one could add an outdoor fridge or other storage.

they are 2x2 concrete pavers made to look like slate. It rained just before the picture was taken - that's Oregon.

The roof is double walled lexan. At the far end of the roof is a rain chain to act as a down spout from the gutter. The vertical white elliptical thing is a light fixture. Does that answer your question?

Do you mean a terrace over an occupied space? Anything is possible but you should check with your building to make sure the structure can support the extra weight of planters and other built-in features. This installation is on grade and the planter in the back with bamboo is just a raised bed between two retaining walls.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

13. Set a mood at night with lighting. A combination of landscape lighting and direct lighting over the grill area will offer the right balance of function and ambience.Tell us: Are you updating your grill setup this summer?
Built in or freestanding? If you are designing a new outdoor kitchen, complete with counters, storage and other features, you can have the grill built in for a seamless look. Reasons to skip the built-ins: A freestanding grill is less costly and offers you more flexibility should you ever want a different size or type of grill — you can easily make the swap yourself.How to Add an Outdoor Kitchen
