5 Ways To Enjoy Your Curved Pergola Design
Enjoying the great outdoors from the comfort of your very own curved pergola design is what having one all is about. They allow you to host dinners, parties and get together without getting your house all messed up and ensuring that you have plenty of room. And they allow you to provide your guests with adequate protection from the elements. If you are unsure how to put your new design to good use, why not consider one of these?
• Living Room Extension
If you’re lounge room opens up into your backyard or even a side garden, the addition of a pergola can actually help you to extend this space. When the weather is nice, you can sit outside (where there is breeze and plenty of sunlight) and enjoy. Place a couch or some comfortable armchairs under the roof so that there are plenty of places for people to sit. A coffee table can also be a nice touch.
• Intimate Outdoor Room
If you only have enough room for a small curved pergola, this space is perfect for the creation of a more intimate outdoor or living room. We are talking about the kind of place where only a small table and a couple of chairs will fit. This is the perfect spot from which to watch your children play in the garden whilst you enjoy a cup of tea and a gossip rag. Or for you to enjoy a romantic meal together.
• Protecting the Entrance
Keep in mind that a curved pergola design is an architectural feature as much as it is for practical use. As such, it is perfect for protecting the entrance to your home. When guests or delivery people arrive on your doorstep, they will be provided with adequate protection from the elements whilst they wait. It will also ensure that anything left on your doorstep, such as a parcel, is protected.
• Alfresco Dining Area
If you would like a more casual dining or even cooking space, you could opt to turn the pergola into an alfresco dining area or an outdoor kitchen. This will allow you to dine outside when the weather is nice, or to prepare food outdoors when the weather is hot (so that you don’t heat up the house). Whilst a barbeque is a popular addition, some homeowners choose to add sinks, fridges and dishwashers!
• Luxury Pool House
If your home is lucky enough to have its own swimming pool, a pergola could function as a pool house. This will provide you with a shaded place from which to relax and watch your kids whilst they swim, as well as a place to suntan without fear of ultraviolet rays. Some people also like to use the pool house as an entertaining area, whereas others put a shower or two underneath for easy cleaning off.
If you have recently had a curved pergola design added to your home or you’re thinking that this might be a good idea, we hope that you find the above uses helpful in determining its purpose. No matter which use you ultimately decide upon, just know that your pergola will be the envy of all who visit and that you will find yourself using it regularly. And there is always the option of having the space double as a handful of uses!
