If you’ve seen a pergola, and have wondered what purpose they serve, you are not alone. Although they look beautiful, they don’t offer much shade, it has a basic design, and it seems to take up valuable space. Believe it or not, pergolas serve a variety of useful purposes. Here are some of them:

Adds Some Beauty 

There’s no denying that pergolas look elegantly beautiful wherever they are placed. They can add a stylish touch to any backyard, patio, or pool area. They offer unlimited ways to customize the structure too. You can choose to leave the original look of your wood, vinyl, aluminum, or fiberglass pergola exposed, or you can decorate it using paint or flowers. However you decide to design your pergola, it’s sure to be a statement piece in your yard. 

Versatile Shade 

A pergola’s cross-beam, open design offers limited relief from harsh, direct sun rays. However, users have plenty of options if they want full coverage. You can add a rectangle canopy on top of the structure, or can fill the cross beam section with things such as flowers, bamboo, or other fabrics. Its versatile shade options are what has attracted the attention of homeowners across the country.

Provide a Hospitable Outdoor Space

This type of structure can be built in various shapes and sizes. For homeowners who want a place to entertain, a pergola can help with that. Homeowners can build a large pergola in their yard to provide a beautiful, memorable location for events. From barbecues to weddings, a pergola is a great structure to have your events under. They’ll offer just enough shade for you and your guests to be comfortable while also open enough to truly enjoy the outdoors. 

Add Value to Your Home

Pergolas are also an investment. Not only will you reap the benefits of your pergola while you’re using it, but you’ll also reap the benefits when it’s time to sell your home. Its beauty, shade, and hospitable nature will add to the market value of your home. These days, we’re all looking for more ways to increase our outdoor living space. Buyers will be willing to pay more for your house if they have space where they can enjoy the outdoors.
