Types of Pergolas
Aarons Outdoor Living provides you with a wide range of pergola ideas to choose from. Whether you need a big or small pergola, short or tall, you can find everything you need to complete your do-it-yourself pergola project in no time! Pergolas are great for keeping the sun off your face, providing a great place to relax and enjoy a meal too. You can create an open-air pergola where the sun can beam through the wood, or you can add a roof to your pergola so you can enjoy the backyard even in the rainy season. Most pergolas are made from wood, but some are made of metal or steel, and plastic.
Sizes of Pergolas
When it comes to choosing the right size for your pergola, consider what you will use the space for: will you be entertaining or enjoying meals under the stars? Will you want to read in a cozy blanket when the rain is pouring down? Do you want a place to relax and get out of the sun after a dip in your swimming pool? Size matters when it comes to the purpose of a pergola. Don’t leave it to chance. Consider what you want the space for, and you’ll be better equipped to make a decision about the size you need. Average pergolas measure about 10’ x 10’ and can act as an extension of your indoor living space. Adding outdoor sofas, chairs, and even a fire pit can enhance the look of your pergola and help you get the most out of it. If you are going to place furniture in your pergola, consider the size and layout of the furniture before you start building your new pergola. You’ll want to make sure there is plenty of room for you to lounge and relax in style and comfort.
Materials Used for the Perfect Pergola
Choosing the right materials for your pergola is important to the longevity of the space. Aarons Outdoor Living offers a variety of materials to choose from. Still, the most popular materials used to build pergolas include treated pine, which is economical and sturdy, as well as colorbond roofing materials that last in the weather for years to come. You can even add a deck under your pergola for more functionality and patio design options. Choosing from a variety of materials for decking, you can make your new pergola truly unique. Mixing and matching materials can create an interesting look and add a lot of value to your home.
