6 Awesome Pergola & Pavilion Ideas That Looks Perfect For Your Backyard

A pergola is a fetching addition to your home because of its versatility. It is easy to customize and add certain touches such as panels, vines, plants and shades just to name a few. Cover it in aluminum or buy in PVC for little to no maintenance.

You can take the alternate route and choose a pergola with a painted or stained wood appearance. Regardless of your personal taste, this brings out the best in your backyard or wherever you decide to install it.

Here are pergola looks you might want to consider for your house.

You can add chairs or a table for whenever you have snacks, drink tea or just when you read your favorite book.

A pergola already adds some shade to those sitting or standing under it. Give yourself more shade from the elements by allowing vines to crawl up it or install a canopy. These not only provide shade, but also beautify the pergola.

Private Pergola

Some homeowners want to display the fullness of their pergola because they think it’s a fetching addition to their garden.

However, you can make it room-like by draping curtains around it or surround it with tall plants. This creates some privacy and ambiance whenever you relax and unwind under the pergola.

Combine a Pavilion and Pergola
