Living outdoors

a guide in choosing your garden pergola

We can define the pergola to be a real key element for outdoor well -being, capable of enhancing an outdoor space, making it comfortable in different weather conditions and creating the opportunity of new outdoor life situations.

A pergola is capable of strongly characterizing the aesthetics of a space, making it more modern and refined.

Since this product offers quite a bit, this article will help explain all the aspects to be considered to identify the solution that best suits your needs.

Garden pergola
Why install it

If you have an outdoor space or a garden, you know that, without the proper “furnishing accessories”, you can’t take advantage of it completely.

 

Installing a pergola allows you to create a comfortable area protected by the heat of the sun and it creates a real new environment capable of combining the benefits of the open air with the comfort of the interior.

In this regard, it is necessary to make a differentiation between the two types of pergolas in the market, which are the pergolas with a retractable roof made of waterproof fabric and the bioclimatic pergolas with the roof made of moveable aluminum blades. Both types offer the same benefits in terms of aesthetics and decoration and they can have either a fixed or retractable roof, but the former is perfect as a shelter from the sun and bad weather, while bioclimatic pergolas hasa roof made of aluminum blades with rotary movement, making it possible to obtain a microclimate with  ideal  light conditions underneath, according to the different atmospheric conditions.

Moreover, both pergolas with the folding roof in waterproof fabric and bioclimatic pergolas can fit sliding glass doors,  which create a protected space where one can enjoy the garden at any time of the year and in any weather condition.Installing a pergola will, therefore, allow you to make your garden a versatile and welcoming space, to be enjoyed on many more occasions, both for relaxation and conviviality!

Where to place it

Depending on where we are going to position the pergola, you will get a different function.

By placing it near the wall of the house, even better if it fits a door or a French window, you will extend your domestic space in the open air. This type of pergola – especially if leaning against, i.e. fixed to the wall of the building – is ideal for creating external “dining rooms” or multifunctional rooms to be enjoyed even in the cooler months, thanks to the integration of perimeter glass doors.

If you own a swimming pool, another strategic positioning is near it: in this way, you will obtain a protected space that will make the use of the swimming pool easier and more comfortable, and will add a glamorous touch to the ambience.

Pergolas can also be placed in the center of the garden, precisely to make a space exposed to the sun and atmospheric agents more livable which, otherwise, could be enjoyed comfortably for a short time. Creating a habitable area in this position ensures an effect of open space around, perfect for relaxation in the greenery.

Examples of pergolas for your garden

Here are some examples of installations that could inspire you!

A new “dining room” for the summer months

If you want to turn your outdoor space into a real living environment, a pergola can make this wish come true. For example, if they are equipped with LED lights, the pergolas become a facility comfortable at any time of day. In this realization, we see Joy, a bioclimatic pergola with a minimal and modern design, which really suits the contemporary style of the house to which it is integrated.

An indispensable outdoor relaxation area

The comfort of your sofa, a warm and natural light around you and all that fresh air… It sounds like a dream, but it’s what you can experience every day in the shade of Varia, the elegant and functional bioclimatic pergola. In this realization, the pergola fits integrated Zip screens to offer greater protection and privacy.

A room in the garden… And the garden in your room!

The installation of Twist, a versatile bioclimatic pergola with an adjustable blade roof, integrated into this realization with sliding glass doors, has made it possible to create an “extra room” in contact with nature, in a perfect balance between the inside and the outside.

An island between the house and the water

In this realization, we see Quadra, a sloped pergola with a sophisticated design, strategically positioned to act as a link between the inside of the house and the edge of the pool. The effect is that of a peaceful island where you can spend moments of relaxation outdoors without renouncing the comfort and intimacy of indoor spaces.

The luxury of an open view whenever you want

If you are lucky enough to have a panoramic view, installing a pergola in your garden will give you the possibility to create an environment in which the panorama itself becomes an exciting background for your moments of relaxation or conviviality.

In this realization, we see Zenit, a pergola with a retractable roof, offering solid protection to the area, while, at the same time, leaving the gaze free towards the horizon and, when the fabric is retracted, to the sky.

New seats, surrounded by nature

Thanks to the installation of structures, the garden of restaurants and hotels becomes an opportunity to increase the number of seats and expand the spaces available to customers. This realization includes eight Twist pergolas.
