Retractable pergolas are the perfect way to enhance your garden space and to guarantee you can make the most out of your outdoor area all-year-round. Forget summer garden parties, you can have garden parties no matter the weather with these modern pergolas! Sounds good, right?
If you are not sure of what a pergola even is, let me start there. Traditional pergolas, as this article on Hunker clearly explains, are open-sided structures most often made with wooden pillars and framework topped with lattice. These are incredibly functional and decorative, creating a superb focal point in your garden or extending your living area.
The main downside of traditional pergolas is the fact that these don’t shield you from the rain and, since we live in a country where it rains most of the year, making the most out of a pergola could be an issue or at least limited to a week (or, if we are lucky, two).
This is where retractable pergolas come in, to tackle this downside. These are modern versions of traditional pergolas which allow you to enjoy your outdoor space in all weather conditions. As Designer Shade Solutions mentions, these pergolas are “primarily designed to protect outdoor areas in changing weather conditions” but also can also enhance your outdoor living by being paired with lighting and heating.
These modern pergolas can also be combined with side glass screens to create the ultimate weatherproof outdoor structure which you can use no matter the weather! So, pop open the prosecco bottle(s) and the orange juice for the little ones and cherish the outdoor views whilst in the comfort of your indoor living area.
