A pergola is a room that is outdoors with no walls and cross rafters that can provide a light filled and airy way to relax, entertain or dine. Pergolas are typically freestanding and can have various design elements that we will discuss below that can add to your landscape design. Keep reading on for different benefits pergolas can add to your home!
Do It Yourself or Manufactured
Pergolas can be a great idea if you favor DIY. A pergola is on the moderate end of ease as far as building on your own. Make sure you have the proper tools to lift the posts into place and set the rafters, if you do, you may find that pergolas can be a fun project. Companies also make and sell pergola kits with pre-cut lumber for easy assembly and landscape companies would be happy to help!
Unique Design Elements
A pergola can bring visual interest to your home. Due to their free-standing nature, they can also be a haven to a lot of different plants like ivy or hanging flowers. You can create different designs easily by hanging fabrics or plants from rafters, painting them different colors or adding unique furniture.
Let in the Light
A pergola allows you to control the amount of light that is coming through. A pergola has no walls, which means that you can temper the amount of light coming in with drapes or fabrics. A patio restricts the light that comes through and you can’t control which way the sun is angling in.
Utilize Outdoor Space
Adding a pergola to your home can maximize your outdoor living space in a big way. You can add outdoor furniture that is protected from the elements and increase your space to entertain, or dine. If one section of the pergola is attached to the wall, then it can provide some shelter from the elements, further increasing its utility.
