There is more to your house than what is inside. Before your guest lay eyes on your interiors, they are first exposed to the exterior of your house. Therefore, it is essential to make a lasting impression from the get-go.
Your deck or patio needs your attention just as much as the rest of your abode does. A great addition to your patio can be a pergola. This way not only will you be able to give your house a stylish look but you will also find a way to store all the extra potted plants that you have.
What is a pergola?
A pergola is a structure that can transform the look of your garden. You can use a roof and vertical beams to create this simple structure. The latter acts support to install the former on top of it. The structure contains frameworks that are equipped with trailing plants.
Why have one?
Here are some of the reasons why you should consider building a Pergola in your garden.
- A definite space
These structures are the perfect way to bring the comfort of the inside to the serenity of the outside world. You can use the created space under the framework as a dining area or an entertainment lounge.
- Privacy from prying eyes
One of the biggest reasons why people don’t like spending time in their garden is that there is no privacy out in the open. However, with such a structure, you can enjoy some privacy as well. How can you do so? Simple. You can add drapes to the vertical beams to convert the open structure into a somewhat closed space.
- The perfect shade
While summer is an excellent season of the year, after a while, sitting under direct sunlight can be uncomfortable. However, if you have a pergola, you can have a shaded area whereby you can soak in the sun without getting sunburn.
