A pergola can be used in a multitude of ways; and they certainly up the wow factor of your home, giving it that added dash of curbside appeal.
So why not think about installing one at your home – sure to enrich your day-to-day living and increase the value of your home.
Read on for our top 5 benefits of having a pergola.
1. Transform your Patio
A pergola is a way of changing up your garden and giving your home that added edge.
Not only will it totally transform the area you put it in – a patio for example – there are various different ways that you can construct a pergola or decorate it.
Simply adding this structure gives the space a new vibe – and with the different materials you can use to build a pergola, you can transform the space into anything you like.
Go rustic with wood or modern with metal or colonial with wicker. It’s your choice how you want your home to look and a pergola can give you so many options.
2. Protection from the Elements
One of the great things about a pergola is that it’s an outdoor area you can use to shield yourself from the elements.
It’s great on a patio should you wish to host an al fresco dinner for example because, should the clouds part and the heavens open, you will be protected from any downpour.
Likewise, you can use it for shade. Perhaps you enjoy sitting out in the summer months but need somewhere you can retreat to from the hot sunshine. The pergola can be used for that. Wind, hail or snow, the pergola has got you covered.
3. Use it as a Carport
Pergolas can be utilised in various ways but one that may not occur to many is to use it as a carport.
The way a pergola is constructed offers a sturdy area under which a car can be kept and protected – and it looks a lot fancier than your average carport too.
As this is likely to be large and at the front or the side of your property, this attractive addition gives the home a boost of aesthetic appeal.
4. Add Value to your Home
Whether you’re using your pergola as an entertaining space, as a carport or as something else, installing one will add value to your home.
Like any addition, the property’s value will increase, even if only moderately.
When the time comes for you to one day perhaps sell your home, you can list the pergola as an added feature, hopefully attracting more buyers.
5. Create an Extra Room
While you might be turning heads curbside, you’re actually creating an added space for privacy by instaling a pergola.
Think of it as an extra room in your property. After all, if you’re hosting dinners there or using it to relax in, it’s almost like a new leisure space.
Have you considered building a pergola as a substitute conservatory? Fill it with plants like clematis and herbs and create an inside/out room in your home.
Fancy Installing a Pergola?
The design of a pergola – what we like to call ‘a fusion of engineering excellence with contemporary design’ – lends itself to so many uses around your property.
Our designs are also handy thanks to the filtration system we build to ensure that rainwater is drained away. This is thanks to the aluminium frames and the 6mm or 10mm glass which delivers the outdoor feel of the classic pergola style, whilst protecting from the rain.
