Don’t be one of those people that spend the time and effort that’s required to install an outdoor pergola, and then never end up using it. If you already are one of these people, there could be a few reasons why.
With these useful tips, tricks, and ideas, you’ll definitely make the most of your outdoor pergola, and enjoy what it has to offer for generations.
You’re definitely not going to want to hang out in your pergola if the seating is awkward or uncomfortable. Ensure that you choose wisely when picking out outdoor furniture for your pergola and go with seating that is comfortable and appealing.
If you already have seating in your pergola that you’re unhappy with, you can always sell it and use the money to get custom furniture made. Alternatively, you could add some pillows for extra colour and comfort.
Invite People Over
The areas that you don’t use in your home often come alive again when you have people over. A pergola is a great place to entertain friends, whether you’re having a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
Why have a pergola if you’re not going to enjoy it with your family and friends?
Create A Barbeque Area Near Your Pergola
If you don’t already have a barbeque grill, now may be a good time to invest in one. Having a barbeque grill near your pergola will definitely ensure that your outdoor pergola is put to use. Your family and friends can relax in the pergola while you flip burgers on the grill and cook up a memorable feast.
Can the neighbours see into your pergola? Maybe that’s the reason you’re not using it as much as you should be. Curtains or sides will also offer some protection from the elements, allowing you to still make use of your pergola in the wind and rain.
