Enjoy outdoor space all year round with these pergola ideas

SYDNEY, Sept. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ideal for creating shady areas in a garden or designated outdoor entertaining area, pergolas offer a stylish, permanent solution that can be added to the back or side of a property or can stand alone to create a privacy zone in a large backyard. As South Australia’s leading supplier of exterior timber structures, Softwoods provide all materials and advice to DIY project owners, as well as a full design and build service.

According softwood, when it comes to what’s trending in outdoor spaces, pergolas never go out of style. Pergolas are ideal for adding definition to any size garden. The area can be used for entertaining or dining, and pergolas are particularly useful for adding some privacy to the backyard, especially if the outdoor space is overlooked by neighboring homes. Softwoods says to add a pergola in sydney to a garden can also increase the value of a property, and DIY options are very cost effective and easy to install.

If a pergola is intended to create an outdoor dining and entertaining area, Softwoods suggests choosing a location that’s easily accessible from the house and covering it with wood or materials that mimic ceilings. Breaking down the space into sections for cooking, eating and relaxing can be done by positioning the furniture in defined areas. The sturdy overhead beams of a pergola provide a great place to hang an egg chair or swing seat, as well as hang interesting light fixtures that will set the mood for year-round entertaining.

Pergolas can add extra shade to a garden and can create the perfect place to relax outdoors. Adding a garden sofa, bench or modular seat makes the space more comfortable. Instead of a natural wood finish, painting the wood pergola in a dark gray or black finish will create a more dramatic backdrop that looks chic paired with colorful outdoor furniture and cushions, Softwoods says. For small spaces, Softwoods recommends opting for pale, muted colors which have a soothing effect and can create the feeling of more space.
