Now, when the weather outside is capricious, if it seems hard to believe that the sunny days will arrive, eventually. Then we shall seek shady spots to shelter us from the sun's burning rays. In the absence of trees with rich crowns, we can take refuge in the shade of the pergolas and pavilions in our personal backyard.
If you have decided to beautify the yard or garden near your house with a canopy of wood to spend your free moments of summer under, but do not know what pattern and style to choose, we will give you a few hints, where you'll find a selection of pergolas and pavilions which more beautiful.
Those who love rustic style and all its elements can build an arbor or a pergola of wood with traditional design, the rounded shape. It is up to you which wood color you choose, considering that it can vary from natural shades of wood raw to a dark brown shade known as "walnut". As decorative elements specific to a rustic kiosk, you can use some curtains made of canvas house, some pottery (plates, cups, pots etc.) hung nicely inside the building, a few sheep furs and even some mats of rushes or reeds.
If you are among the fans of traditional rustic style and design, but you do not have a yard that’s large enough to allow you place an arbor, you can build a wooden pergola and fit over one of the terraces of the house. The pergola will provide you even more coolness and shadow if you cover it with a few mats of reed or rush, and you will plant some fast-growing climbing plants at the base of the sustaining columns, such as Glycine or Canadian vine, for instance.
More and more houses built lately have a modern allure, a sign that their owners prefer contemporary design. Of course, in the yard of such a house, a rustic gazebo would look completely out of place. But here there is plenty of pavilions and pergolas variants that would look great next to a modern building, completing its charm with their modern minimalist design.
Unlike rustic pavilions, rounded-shaped one distinguish themselves by minimalist lines and right angles. So a modern gazebo can have a perfect cubic shape and the tabs on the roof must be supple and perfectly aligned. For those of you who want something more spectacular, there are pavilions and pergolas made of common metal, with an industrial flair, or carved metal cut into various shapes. To achieve such construction it requires the skill of a craftsman who knows how to process the metal and convert it from an ordinary piece of iron into a work of art. If desired, they can be decorated with flags minimalist vaporous curtains of white cloth, which can induce an air of holiday at the seaside.
Why would we use a pergola or gazebo?
Because we don’t live in an area where we can enjoy the warm and beautiful weather anytime of the year and it's a shame to not take advantage of the sunny few months that we have available. A pergola installed on the terrace of the house, a pavilion or gazebo built in one corner of the yard or garden can give us a great location for setting up a rocking chair or a cozy place just perfect for dining outdoors.
