The Benefits of a Pergola With Roof
With spring just around the corner, it feels like the sun could be making an appearance any time soon, and I can’t wait. I can’t wait to be outside in my garden sipping on a refreshing drink whilst the kids are running around their play area. I do wish that days in the garden weren’t so scarce.
So, I asked myself “Why not add a rain cover to my garden?”. Any type of cover would be handy – it would offer shelter from the rain during autumn and winter plus, shade during summer (and some days in spring). My outdoor space is part of my house, so why am I not making the most out of it?
Yes, the weather doesn’t really allow it but will I let that stop me? No. I was on a mission to find the perfect cover for my garden when I found a pergola with roof by Designer Shade Solutions. This stunning metal pergola had retractable roof slabs that opened, closed or tilted. Have you ever seen one of these?
The advantages of pergolas with roofs.
- Create multi-purpose spaces.
Wood Create shared that retractable roof pergolas are one of the top outdoor living trends for 2022. “These retractable roof pergolas fall under the multi-purpose outdoor spaces trend.” Multi-purpose spaces have become the new norm with homeowners wanting to create functional spaces for day-to-day use. A modern roof pergola can be used to shelter an outdoor dining space or an outdoor kitchen to ensure these areas can be used rain or shine.
- Extend current living areas.
If you are looking to extend your current living space, install a modern pergola attached to your property. These pergolas will offer a seamless transition from indoor living to outdoor living, extending your overall living space.
When considering where to set your pergola, The Rare Welsh Bit recommends considering which parts of the garden tend to be shaded by the sun at different times of the day. “If you intend upon sitting in your pergola while soaking up the sun, then you’ll want to ensure you don’t position it in front of any big, looming trees or any other tall structures which could create shadows or shade.”
- Custom made to your requirements.
One of the beauties of Designer Shade’s pergolas, says Midlands Traveller, is the fact that they can create bespoke retractable roof pergolas to suit any requirement. This includes pergolas with retractable roof and sides as well as pergolas with fabric retractable roofs and more. Modern pergolas can also be customised with heating and lighting.
