A gazebo is an open outdoor structure with a roof. Some gazebos have low walls and can be screened, while others are open or may have curtains on the sides. Gazebos come in many forms, such as round, square, rectangular, and even octagonal. As Maryland gazebo builders, we find that an 8-sided gazebo is one of the most common requests we get from our customers. But do you even need a gazebo? What are you going to use it for? These are all good questions, and indeed a gazebo is not for everyone. But if you enjoy all or some of the below, you might find a gazebo to be a great addition to your outdoor entertainment space.

Rest and Relaxation

Most people rest and relax on their decks in summer. Decks are great, no doubt, but they are permanently attached to your home. For that reason, you can’t get far away from the road noise and even from your own family members. Meanwhile, you might have a large property with many points of interest. Why not build a gazebo next to that pretty cherry tree or overlooking a stream that runs through your property? These are great spots to spend time lounging, napping or reading a book.

Shade and Privacy

A poolside gazebo can provide the welcome shade and privacy in-between fun in the pool. It’s also a great way for anyone not interested in swimming or tanning to still enjoy the outdoors. Parents can relax in a poolside gazebo with a glass of ice-cold tea or a book while the kids are being kids in the pool.

If you don’t have a pool, you can enclose a hot tub in a gazebo. This will add privacy and provide space to hang your towels and clothes. Take it a step further and add a bar counter and stools on one side or connect your hot tub gazebo to your deck to maintain the traffic flow!

Dining and Entertainment

Do you like alfresco dining in summer? Do you entertain a lot? Then a gazebo is a must-have! A screened gazebo integrated into your deck can provide a shaded and bug-free dining space for your family. You can easily carry the food from your grilling station and enjoy your meals outdoors any time of the day regardless of the weather. If you entertain large groups of people, you could use a large open gazebo to provide additional space for your guests to sit down with a drink and mingle. Or you could fit it with a bar and turn it into a dance floor!

What you decide to do with your gazebo is entirely up to you, but it’s an incredibly versatile structure. No doubt, there are plenty of useless gazebos out there that were set up with no specific purpose in mind. That’s why it’s important to have a goal for your gazebo and work with an experienced Maryland gazebo contractor to help you turn your ideas into life. The planning stage is just as important as the building, and at North American Deck and Patio we’ll be happy to help you with both.
