Now that spring is right around the corner, you may be thinking of ways to expand your outdoor living space. Gazebos are great additions to virtually any backyard. They provide a beautiful aesthetic, provides a space to enjoy the outdoors, and adds value to your home. Did you know that there are different styles of gazebos? Here are three you should consider:


Originating from Europe, rotundas have become one of the most popular gazebo styles for homeowners. It has a round design and usually a dome roof that is supported by four pillars. Because of its circular design, if homeowners build one in their backyard, there is still enough room for them and any guests they may have to enjoy other parts of the yard. 

Some of the pros associated with rotunda-styled gazebos are their ability to provide adequate shelter, shade, and containment for toddlers and small pets. It’s also beneficial that homeowners can clear a new space in their backyard to build a rotunda, or they can choose to add one to their existing deck or patio. 


Pavillion style is considered one of the most traditional types of gazebos. It is an open-sided, simple type of gazebo that’s commonly open-air. It’s usually made in the shape of an octagon with four or more pillars supporting it. It’s also available in either rectangular or oval designs. This styled gazebo is commonly located next to the main building.

Pavillion-style gazebos are simple-built, require minimal maintenance, and offer the perfect space to entertain guests on a beautiful day. Although they provide shade, they offer less shelter than other types of gazebos. They’re suited for various types of terrain, occasions, and uses. 


Victorian-style gazebos have a majestic look to them since they have many similarities to Victorian homes. Their intricate detailing on the beams, braces, and panels has caught the attention of homeowners throughout the country. They’re made primarily out of wood and are either painted white or left in their natural state. The roofs of Victorian gazebos are steep and gabled, just like Victorian houses. 

This gazebo style is ideal for homeowners who have a Victorian-style house and want a gazebo to match. It’s also a good option for homeowners who want to add a majestic aesthetic to their backyard.
