First of all, what is a Pergola and where we can find it?
“A pergola, arbor, or arbour is a garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice, often upon which woody vines are trained. The origin of the word is the Late Latin pergula, referring to a projecting eave. As a type of gazebo, it may also be an extension of a building or serve as protection for an open terrace or a link between pavilions. They are different from Green tunnels.” – a definition by Wikipedia.
It is a garden element that has been used for many years. Now it finds its place in beautiful mansions and houses with enough space in the garden. Have a look at some other amazing garden ideas here: https://founterior.com/category/room-type/garden/ or continue reading below.
But what can we use the pergola for? Typically, nowadays people use pergolas as a garden construction under which they can form a small living space with an outside kitchen, for example, including some patio furniture, barbecue area, tables, chairs, etc. It is like a summer shelter where most of the everyday activities can be done. And because people love to spend their summer time in the open, that’s why pergolas are an amazing place to do this favorite thing without being burnt by the sunrays.
Imagine a warm summer evening and a beautiful table full of delicious meals and various beverages under the pergola. Imagine yourself in the pleasant company of your family and some friends that have joined you for dinner. Little candles and artificial dimmed light can complete the relaxing atmosphere. This is on of the preferred usages of pergolas.
Now, the other option is to throw an afternoon party in the backyard where the zone under the shelter will be the jewel in the crown. A mobile cart for cold drinks can also be placed under the arbor and thus I guarantee that the spare time will become a top favorite activity for your company.
We have collected today some constructions and we have arranged them by the type of materials they we made from. We can distinguish three main types – Vinyl, Fiberglass and Wood.
Just before exploring the images, let me take you to another imaginary journey. Imagine yourself getting in the morning, like in 10am in the morning. Taking your dressing gown up and heading outside your beautiful house on a silent hill with splendid view over the ocean. You open the giant glass sliding doors and feel the warm grass under your feet. Then, you step on the minimalist concrete pavers and follow the path that leads you into the sunny garden. And after 30 steps you enter a paradise. You go to the bar, make a quick Mojito with a lot of ice and fresh Mint and it, step away and dive into the comfort of a modern lounge chair. Quiet music completes the picturesque landscape and you enjoy your life under the pergola. Now, let’s see some fantastic examples!
