Do you like to enjoy sunny mornings in your garden or terrace but hate too much sun? The pergola is the perfect solution to protect from sun while enjoying it at the same time; it is also one of the most traditional decorations for gardens and terraces.
In modern style, pergolas take a different look; more minimalist & stylish yet pretty and charming. Let’s see this collection of most fashionable designs for outdoor pergolas. Sometimes we want to enjoy both shadow & sun; new designs of pergolas allow you to have a mix of both or to switch from one to another.
It’s up to you to choose between many different models; for example: the ones with roofs partially covered with strips of wood (or steel) or other, this one is modular, with retractable canvas roof.
The Free-standing models are also very practical; they allow you to choose the location: close to house if you want to prepare a dining area in your outdoor and avoid round trips from & to the house, close to the pool…etc.
as for materials, wood is the most material used in pergolas especially pins which the majority of pergolas are made of it which offer you a good compromise between quality and price. Choose products that have autoclave treatment to support weather and give it special timber oil at least once a year.
If you prefer steel, which fits well with old houses, it is better to apply a layer of anti-corrosive paint every 2 or 3 years. As for the aluminum; it provides airy structures, light and very modern, it is ideal for contemporary environments.
