How a Pergola can complete your outdoor entertaining area

If you have a penchant for the shade, that doesn’t mean that you must stay inside. Beautiful pergolas aren’t just there to look good, they provide welcome shade from the harsh summer sun and still allow a cooling breeze to pass through. In Adelaide’s wetter month’s you can still enjoy getting out into the fresh air and stay dry, curled up with a blanket, some hot tea and a good book underneath the gentle pitter-patter coming from above.


Pergolas are the ultimate way to complete your home’s outdoor entertaining area. Instantly, you add more space to your home that can be used all year round. A wonderful view is also guaranteed, whether it’s a blooming garden or calming rain. All you need to do is sit back, grab your favourite drink and devote an entire day to doing nothing but taking it easy.


Shade for Your Summer BBQ’s


The grill is heating up, and the beers are on ice, the last thing you want is your guests getting uncomfortably hot, or worse a bad case of sunburn. We all know the Adelaide sun can get pretty hot and too much exposure can be harmful to us. Pergolas are perfect for your outdoor entertainment area because they provide an area of cooling shade to escape the beating rays. If you’ve ever tried to eat a steak while being blasted by the sun, you know it’s much more pleasant to hide away in the shade. Nothing detracts from a juicy sirloin like having to wipe the sweat out of your eyes. Also, too much sun can be particularly problematic for both young kids and older folks alike – a pergola gives them the protection they need while still allowing them to be part of the fun. On hot days, you’ll find that a pergola adds a supreme level of comfort to your outdoor dining.


Alfresco Dining Even with Rain


Adelaide has an average of 83 rainy days per year. Yes, it’s less than other parts of the world, but it’s always nice to know that no matter what the weather conditions are that you can still have your friends over for a spot of alfresco dining. With some simple upgrades such as adding an outdoor heater, you and your friends can enjoy extended dining under a beautiful pergola well into the evening as you’d like, at any time of the year. You could install some fairy lights along the supports or combine a few plants into the mix to create a cozy dining environment.


Added Privacy


Pergolas create an intimate and private area where people can feel more comfortable and relaxed. By protecting you from both the weather and your neighbours’ wandering-eyes, a pergola can significantly enhance the sense of intimacy of any BBQ or dinner party. On regular days, you can feel free to relax outside without any nosey individuals keeping a check on you.
