Have you been dreaming about a new pergola? You’re not alone. Pergolas are a very popular topic of conversation around here whenever people call us.
Some people don’t need much convincing, but we thought we’d share a few comments with you just in case you’re currently sitting on the fence (no pun intended).
1. Create an Outdoor Room
Pergolas are one of the easiest ways to extend your house space. When you combine a pergola with a good deck or stone patio you get a beautiful space that gives you all of the comfort of a room without sacrificing any of the enjoyment that comes with being outside.
After all, what looks nicer? Random outdoor furniture on your lawn? Or carefully arranged outdoor furniture under the breezy roof of a pergola?
2. Build a Meditation Garden
Maybe you don’t want a huge addition to your house. Maybe you don’t need an entire outdoor room.
Maybe you just need a place to sit and unwind for a little while.
Imagine this: a tiny pergola which houses a single bench. Climbing flowers creep and play over the frame of the pergola, and you inhale their gentle fragrance with every deep breath that you take. The stress of the day eases away as the birds chirp around you or as butterflies flit by.
Life is hectic and fast-paced. Maybe you owe it to yourself to have one, tiny little getaway, a small space that defies all of that.
3. Increase the value of your home.
A well-designed, well-placed pergola can increase the value of your home by up to 5%. Even if you’re not looking at selling your home right now it’s never a bad idea to help it grow its value. It is, after all, a large investment.
Of course, you don’t want to place a pergola just anywhere. As this article from Frontdoor.com mentions, it’s very important to ensure that the pergola actually adds to the curb appeal and flows with the rest of your landscaping.
