5 Design Inspirations for Your Pergola Project

10 May 2021

There are tons of outdoor features and additions that can be integrated into home properties, especially if they still have a lot of outdoor space available. Some owners of these properties would opt for decks, while others may want to incorporate patios alongside their swimming pools.

One more outdoor feature that homeowners can incorporate into their properties is pergola. A pergola is an outdoor structure that is often made from columns, beams, and rafters. This specific feature may form a shaded walkway, passageway, or even a sitting area, and can be either freestanding or attached to the house. What is great about this feature is that it can add extra functional space for properties. It can also provide an additional place for plants and other softscape elements to grow, as well as an extra dimension that lets property occupants appreciate beautiful outdoor views and fresh air.

If you are thinking of adding a pergola to your property, here are some design inspirations that you may want to consider.

Well-Lit Pergola

While a pergola can already maximise natural light in illuminating the whole place, you can still add some beautiful lights to make it more beautiful, especially at night. You may want to hang light bulbs on your pergola that is created out of durable and long-lasting cedarwood. You can likewise add some plants around your pergola to make it more eye-catching and comfortable to look at.

Green Pergola

The way pergolas are normally built would depend on the preferences of their owners. Therefore, if you love to take care of plants on your property, then you may want to integrate them with your pergola. Your green pergola may be comprised of hanging planters that can make the place livelier and more refreshing. Surrounding your pergola with potted plants can also yield the same refreshing effects.

Kid-Friendly Pergola

Now, if you are currently taking care of children, then you may want to consider adding a kid-friendly pergola. A kid-friendly pergola typically boasts features that would allow your kids to play freely, without the risk of any dangers along the way. Some forms of well-constructed and minimal barriers can be placed around your pergola to ensure that your kids will not be able to reach outside your property.

Resort-Like Pergola

Resorts are often visited as they have all elements that can make a vacation relaxing and soothing. Fortunately, pergolas can boast resort-like features just by adding the right furniture pieces, light fittings, and others. You may want to integrate some thick yet light-coloured curtains to keep a balance between comfort and privacy. Sofas and other furniture pieces can also be added for added solace.

Poolside Pergola

You may already have a pool on your property. And if you think that pergola can boost your pool’s value, then you are on the right track. Instead of just leaving the surrounding of your pool empty, you may want to dedicate some of the space to a freestanding wood pergola so that it can be functional once you have done swimming. This pergola can also be used to cosy up even without entering the pool.
