Pergolas: They are the Foundation to any GREAT Outdoor Room
When designing a home, it is just as important to design the outside space as it is the inside. A pergola is a great way to define your outdoor living or dining space, as well as giving it an extra "wow" factor. They are a great foundation to your outside space as they pull all of the different sectors together.
Many people confuse a gazebo or arbor with a pergola. They do share many of the same qualities and can function in many of the same ways, but there is a difference.
Gazebos are most often round or octagonal shaped with a turret for the top, and are most often free standing and have a solid roof.
An arbor is the most like a pergola because it provides shade and can be used for walkways. However, they most often have a open lattice where flowers and plants can grow during the warmer months.
A pergola can be attached to a home or used as a free standing structure with open sides and semi-covered roof. Pergolas allow for sunlight, shade, and breezes to pass through. They are a great option for outdoor sitting areas because they give you a place to relax.
You can even add a fire pit, fireplace, grill, or outdoor kitchen to a pergola to make it great for every season. This allows you to extend the functionality of your backyard space.
