Airy and elegant, a pergola can easily stand in for a standard patio cover. While it can be elegant on its own, a dressed-up pergola will certainly add more interest to your outdoor area. In this blog, we’ll be giving you 3 ideas on how to level up the comfort of your pergola patio for a more relaxing stay.
If you have kids, a pergola swing attached to your pergola post or beam can replace the usual seating arrangement. With a swing for a seat, you can put a creative and fun twist to your seating area. It’s also a cozy spot for a read, meditation, or even an afternoon nap. You can have transparent polycarbonate sheets to provide a permanent protection against rain or snow so you can still hang out by your pergola swing even when the weather is less than desirable.
Hang air plants from the beams of your pergola and let trundling vines create a natural roof cover over your pergola. Whether it is climbing roses, orchids, or tillandsia, you can transform your plain pergola into a garden haven with these air plants. You can also let it hang in different levels. Install seats and you’ll have a secret enclave and garden all to yourself.
Aluminum Patterned Pergola
Use shadows to create an eclectic look for your patio. Using aluminum, patterns, classic, modern, or custom and hand-drawn, can be cut into the panels and used as the pergola roof. You can have a solid concrete for patio surface, making the shadows created by the pattern more evident or use gravel for a softer transition between your indoor and outdoor spaces.
Pergolas can be a substitute for your patio cover, a section marker, or a standalone structure for your garden. Create a personal retreat in your outdoor space by having a pergola installed and maximize the use of your outdoor area.
