Thinking about building a pergola in your home? Pergolas and gazebos are a great way to add aesthetic appeal to your outdoor space. Also a pergola allows home owner to enjoy the weather outside and relax whenever they fancy. Nothing is more soothing than lazing about in the garden under the cool shade of a pergola.
Have you wondered where exactly should you have the pergola built? It’s pretty simple, just make sure to keep the following things in mind.
What would you be using the pergola for?
This is a major question and one which you should be pretty aware of when having an Adelaide pergola designed for your home. Are you thinking about making it into an outdoor space for enjoying a quite lunch or dinner? If that’s the case, then you need to build a pergola which is near to your home. Probably right next to the deck. After all who would carry steaming hot plates of food all across the yard?
If you want to use it as a quiet spot where you could relax, probably read a book or does of while watching the kids play, you would need to choose a shadier spot. One that faces away from the sun. Though you would have a roof over the head but when it’s sunny, pergolas tend to get pretty warm and that might make things a tad bit uncomfortable.
Do you want to use the pergola for socialising purposes? Maybe invite a few guests over and have a small BBQ party. If you have a pool in your outdoor space then you should have a pergola built near the pool. You can even go a bit further and have a hot tub installed under the pergola.
On the other hand, perhaps the only purpose is to add aesthetic value to your outdoor space. Basically if you are thinking of having a pergola built for beautifying purpose, then you could choose one which is elaborate in style and design.
How large should your pergola be?
This actually depends upon the shape and size of your garden or the back yard. Pergolas come in a variety of size and design. You could get advice from a pergola builder and they could show you a portfolio of all the designs they have done in the past.
The key is to choose a design which actually complements your space. Also there is an option of choosing a pergola according to the kind of budget you have in mind. If budget is not an option you could have a specially customised pergola built for your home.
However, if you are on a low budget, don’t panic. You can buy pergolas which are already built and have them placed strategically in your garden or backyard. There are so many options to choose from. Everything from material to design can be customised according to your taste and desire.
