Summer is just around the corner, and whilst it has been a hard year both personally and socially, things are starting to look up just as the weather improves. So what does this mean for your home? Building a stunning outdoor area, of course!

Nothing says the great Aussie summer more than a comfortable, stylish pergola where you can shade yourself from the sun and block out some of that overbearing heat. 

Here are four reasons why you should get cracking on your pergola in time for some much-needed summer socialising.

Pergolas add to your entertainment zone

Australia is home to some of the world’s most enviable summers. Therefore, if you have the space, outdoor entertainment in the warmer months should be a must. If you’re a person who loves getting their friends and family around for a BBQ then a pergola is perfect for you. 

With a pergola installed, you can add outdoor furnishings and cooking appliances to create the perfect entertainment space. 

They help set the outdoor temperature

The hottest (and coldest) months of the year can be an outdoors challenge without a shaded pergola. The summer sun and winter chill, at their most extreme, can make being outside frightful. However, with a pergola, you can enjoy year-round outdoor living without the worry of being burnt or catching a cold.

With stylish outdoor blinds installed along with your pergola, you can set the temperature at all times of the year – it’s a dream outdoor situation. 

Pergolas can blend into your home’s aesthetic

Pergolas don’t come in a “one-size-fits-all” design template – you can have them designed in a way that suits your home’s aesthetic. Talk to your builder and blinds installer about the way in which you would like the style, materials and colours to suit your home. 

They increase property value

One of the most eye-catching features for potential homebuyers is entering the property and finding an inviting outdoor area awaiting them. It’s an entertainer’s dream, and so it greatly increases the value of a property.
