It is a structure made up of vertical columns with a lattice roof, where people place ornaments like lamps and climbing plants. Installation can be independent or attached to a building. Pergolas were favorite elements in English gardens of the 18th and 19th centuries when the most beautiful brick and stone ones were built.
How to have a beautiful pergola at home
The first thing you have to do is to choose where you want it. You must remember this structure has a lattice or a fabric roof, therefore it doesn’t completely protect from rain or sun. Once you have the place, determine how much space you want it to occupy depending on the activities you’d like to do. If you already have the furniture you want to place in it, this could be a good starting point for defining the measurements. Once you have them, define style, material, colors, shaep and decoration. Will you place climbing plants or hanging plants? Once the pergola is built, the decoration will depend a lot on your preference. Give free rein to your imagination and be the creator of a pleasant refuge.
