Do you want to upgrade your backyard with a contemporary outdoor living room without having to hire a designer? Check out this simple DIY decorating idea using a modern steel pergola…
Why I Think this Contemporary Pergola Kit is a Wise Investment:
This pergola structure can add value to your home simply through its upscale contemporary design. Besides that, it adds an outdoor entertaining area, shade and privacy as well.
Note In other words, well-designed backyard structures can often pay for themselves in the value they bring to the home. (Especially ones that usable outdoor living space and appear to be custom built.)
Compared to standard pergolas or gazebos, this model features a long, slatted wall. While allowing sunshine and air to flow through, this design element creates more of a “room-like” feel.
I think it makes the space feel more sophisticated, like you’d find at a fancy resort. In addition, the metal bars can provide support for an additional sun shade, vining plants or lights.
Maximize Shade with the Adjustable Pergola Canopy:
The pergola frame comes with its own overhead shade canopy, which you can pull down on either side. As a result, you can shade your outdoor room, no matter what time of day.
Simply pull down on the canopy using the adjustable bar to reach the desired length.
In addition, this canopy also comes in handy to minimize wind and even create a privacy screen. Not to mention, it enhances the room-like feel of the space.
Note: Compared to outdoor curtains or blinds, this retractable canopy won’t blow around in the wind. All corners conveniently connect to the pergola structure. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about curtains blowing against furniture or guests.
The Easy Way to Create a Cozy Outdoor Living Room:
With a 10 foot by 12 foot structure, you can easily find outdoor furniture that fits underneath. You can seat a good amount of people comfortably without having to spend a lot of money.
For example, this sofa and chair set below features a small sectional lounger, complete with cushions and even a matching table. Then, complete the look with an outdoor rug, and you’ve got a cozy spot to relax, entertain and enjoy all summer long.
Pergola Installation Made Easy:
Although this deluxe pergola seems like it would take a long time to put together, it only requires about 60-90 minutes to assemble. Plus, the freestanding design enables you to install virtually anywhere in your yard.
However, the unique shape and minimalist style make it look like you actually hired an landscape architect to re-design your backyard. When in fact, you can save a bunch of money and handle the project yourself. =)
The package includes the necessary wrench and Allen key, plus you’ll need a hammer and 2 ladders. By the way, each pergola post has a base that you can secure to the ground/patio/deck.
