I’ve always been fascinated with pergolas and I’ve always wished I could have one in my back garden, where I could host garden parties and have alfresco breakfast while the sun is rising… but it’s only a dream. At least, a girl can dream, right?
Traditional pergolas are stunning and look incredible in any garden. Even Architectural Digest published an article all about traditional pergolas, highlighting the beauty of pergolas and how they “provide relief from harsh rays while still allowing for a cooling breeze to pass through.” But for British homes, things a bit different.
We want garden structures that allow us to enjoy our garden, even when it’s raining. So, traditional pergolas won’t cut it. This is where modern pergolas with retractable roofs by Designer Shade Solutions come in. These pergolas feature retractable and tilting louvred roofs that can open when the sun is shining, for some shade, the roof can be tilted and if it starts to rain, the roof can be easily closed – what else do you need?
“If I’m going to add something to my garden, I want to be able to enjoy it all-year-round.” says this article in Chilling with Lucas and I couldn’t agree more. If I’m going to invest in a garden structure, I want to make the most out of it and these modern pergolas are the perfect example.
These can be added to the middle of your garden, patio or terrace as a stunning centrepiece retreat, creating the perfect outdoor/indoor area that you can use no matter the weather. To extend your interiors, these modern pergolas can also be attached to your property, offering you a seamless transition from indoor living to outdoor living.
Plus, as Suburban Mum mentions in this article, “Not only do these outdoor structures give your garden an interesting focal point but also increase your home’s value and add privacy.” These modern pergolas can also be used to define certain areas of your outdoors, including dining spaces and children’s play areas.
“Multi-season functionality is essential to any garden.” comments Fizzy Peaches. And that’s exactly what these modern and innovative pergolas provide – a chance to use your garden no matter the season. Even more during the current situation, when spending time outside is limited, having your own weatherproof retreat in your garden or patio is the perfect choice.
