Pergolas and Gazebos
Why Have Pergolas and GazebosPergolas and gazebos will provide the much-needed shade for your outdoor space, but they shouldn't be just any kind of structure. The designs of your pergola and gazebo should be integrated with the overall design of your outdoor surroundings to create a more harmonious atmosphere.
More than just being a source of shade, though, pergolas and gazebos could also bring more healthful fun to your family activities by allowing you to enjoy the fresh outdoor air and engage in more active leisure. Just imagine all the alfresco brunches you could enjoy as a family if you had a pergola over your deck or a gazebo in your garden. And your kids will also want to stay home and invite their friends over instead of going elsewhere to enjoy the outdoors.
If you have future plans of selling your home, the presence of pergolas and gazebos can boost the value of your home. Not only do they enhance your home's beauty, the added living space that these structures offer also makes it more appealing to potential buyers.
Choosing the Right SpaceTo maximize the benefit of your pergola or gazebo, proper determination of the location is very important. For example, if it is to be used for dinners and parties, it will have to be situated near your kitchen to make it more convenient to transport food and drinks. This also means that your structure has to be bigger in order to accommodate more people.
Another key consideration is the amount of sun you want to soak up under the structure. If you wish for more light and sun, it should be placed farther away from trees and other sources of shade. Positioning your structure so that it faces north will also ensure maximum sun exposure throughout the year.
Design ConsiderationsVarious designs and materials are available for consideration in building pergolas and gazebos. You can choose between timber, steel, polycarbonate, wrought iron and many more. The choice of materials depends on the existing design of your home. For a more Mediterranean feel, timber trellises on which vines can crawl will provide a nice dappled look. Meanwhile, wrought iron pergolas would work well for Renaissance garden designs. Wood is recommended for those who want to have a classic appeal on their pergolas.
