5 Ways that Pergolas Make Your Home Better
Five pergola ideas that will make your home fabulous
Interested in sprucing up your backyard with something unique and beautiful? Why not install a pergola? Whether freestanding or attached to the premises, pergolas make a striking addition to any home. Featuring cross rafters with no solid walls, you can enjoy a light, airy place to relax, dine or simply enjoy your garden or backyard. There are multiple benefits beyond, which we explore below.
1. Add More Greenery to Your Property
Since pergolas commonly feature lattice and beams serving as columns on the sides and the top, it’s a perfect place for climbing plants to intertwine themselves along it. You can also dangle hanging plants. With a good selection of plants such as wisteria or passionfruit, you can really add to the overall look of the pergola and your garden.
2. Protection from the Weather
Are you avoiding spending time in your backyard because of a lack of shade? A pergola is a great way of adding shade as well as protection from rain whilst keeping your garden or backyard looking beautiful. If you’re worried about your outdoor furniture getting damaged from weathering, pergolas can also protect these and help them last longer. If your pergola is attached on one side to your home, it works even better as a windbreak and shelter from the rain and sun.
3. Block Unsightly Views
Got an old shed in the yard? Dead tree in the neighbour’s yard? Just an ugly building in the backdrop? A pergola can block out your view of unsightly things, especially when they are full of climbing and hanging greenery. This helps improve the overall atmosphere of your home.
4. Maximise Usable Space
Your backyard is a space that can only really be used at certain times of the year. When it’s too sunny or if it’s raining and you don’t have any undercover area in the yard, the space goes unused. By adding a pergola, you’ll be adding a space where you can relax and entertain guests all year round.
5. Add Value to Your Home
A pergola adds extra value to your property for the reasons listed above. It adds extra functionality to your home as well as visual interest. It can completely transform an otherwise boring landscape and essentially double as an additional outdoor living or dining space. If you were ever interested in selling your home or borrowing against it, your pergola is certain to increase the overall value of the property.
