Many homeowners are constantly flipping through home and garden publications, reading outdoor living blogs, and wishing they had access to an outdoor pergola that fit their unique design needs. Many homeowners fear that a custom pergola would be far too costly for their limited budgets. But, this isn’t always the case.
Some of the most common situations requiring a custom pergola are covering a unique sized porch or patio, wanting to cover large spaces with angles as well as simply looking for a structure that will stand out from the crowd.
Unique Sized Porch or Patio: Many custom pergolas are created to cover a porch or patio that does not conform to standard sizing. Whether yours is long and narrow or short and wide, taking advantage of custom pergola options will help you create a covered outdoor living space that fits.
Angles and Spaces: Especially on large poolside properties, pergolas are required to cover a large span with custom angles. Using an “L” shaped pergola creates more usable covered space that can hug the pool or other focal point. It’s important to get the size and shape that nestled into your outdoor living space perfectly, so a custom pergola is incredibly helpful. You will also want to ensure that all of your patio furniture and outdoor furniture has enough space to spread out beneath the beams.
Wanting to Stand Out in the Crowd: Many homeowners just have that inimitable taste and can’t find their design personality in most standard pergolas. Small touches like custom base trim or custom columns can turn any space into a designer space. If it’s you, and not your space constraints, demanding a custom pergola… never shy away from getting what you want. Outdoor living spaces deserve to be escapes from the everyday.
As February comes to a close, and the beautiful spring season comes upon us, it very may be time for a custom pergola. Create a vacation get-away in your backyard this year, and enjoy every evening as if you were at a resort.
