The Purpose of a Modern Pergola

  • Post author:

The pergola, also known as a patio, is a marvelously versatile outdoor structure that can transform your home and allow your family to spend as much time as possible outdoors. The pergola can create a place of privacy, shade, socializing, entertainment, work, and more. Let’s find out a few of the major benefits of having a pergola.

Outdoor Dining Area

A pergola is a great place to entertain guests. You can install a barbecue pit or a mini kitchen right there in your pergola along with a beautifully decorated seating area. A custom pergola will allow you to dine out in the open air but still be in the safety of your home.

Place a set of comfortable sofas, chair, and a table in your pergola. Accessorize the space with soft cushions, rugs, lighting, fans, a fire pit, plants, and more to beautify the space and transform it into a stunning dining area.

Poolside Lounge

It can become scorching hot in Arizona during the summer months. A shaded pergola next to the pool will allow you to get respite from the sun and the water but also enjoy the warm weather. Add a few deckchairs and umbrellas beneath the pergola so that you can enjoy the warm weather in comfort.

If you have a hot tub outside, a pergola can help shield you from prying eyes and create an intimate and private space for your family.

Beautiful Garden

A pergola is a great place for you to show off your skills as a gardener. The posts and beams of the pergola are perfect places for you to grow creepers and vines of grapes. In addition, you can also hang small flower pots from the ceiling of the pergola, turning it into a virtual garden.

Another great idea is to hang a small birdbath or a birdhouse in the pergola. That way you will attract a variety of beautiful birds to your home. However, if you do that, make sure to regularly clean and maintain your pergola.

A Happy Place

A pergola can be made into an extended living space where you can go if you need some alone time. Add some plush furniture, cushions, carpets, or even a small swing set or a hammock in your pergola so that you can relax and spend some quality time with yourself.

You can turn your pergola into a small make-shift library by adding a bookcase and coming there to curl up and read. You can come there for a comfortable shut-eye away from the hustle and bustle of your home. It can also just be a relaxing place where you can come and think.

Add screens and curtains to the pergola for an added level of privacy.

 Bottom Line

Adding a pergola to your property can give you a lot of benefits and a great multi-purpose place for you to spend some much-needed alone time. There are one million and one ways you can design and customize your pergola to give you the comfort, entertainment, and a staycation experience that you need.
