If your backyard has a pergola, or you’re looking towards building one, then this blog is perfect for you. Pergolas can be the centrepiece for any Australian garden as well as the neighbourhood’s envy. The great thing about pergolas is that you don’t necessarily need an architect’s influence over its styling. You can add some tidbits as you go and customise it to your pleasing.   

Contemporary furniture, hanging gardens, blinds and shades are all inexpensive, stylish ways to enhance the beauty of your pergola. With a little thought and creativity, you can easily turn something that may appear a bit sparse and uninteresting into something full of colour and vibrancy.

Here, we will show you how you can enhance the style and beauty of your pergola in affordable and unique ways.

Climbing Plants & Vine Canopies

For a gorgeous, inviting pergola, use climbing plants and flowing vines to engulf the pergola’s roof. Plants are cheap, don’t require too much maintenance, and can easily add light and vibrancy to your space here and there.

Vine canopies provide a pergola with a homely, charming effect, as well as provide shade from the sun’s glare in summer.

Stylish Patio Furniture

A pergola simply isn’t a pergola without the right furniture. There are plenty of outdoor furniture themes you can choose for your design. You can choose theme-based, contemporary pieces to style your taste or go for minimal, elegant furniture that blends in seamlessly with the deck’s design.

Remember, however, to choose furniture that can withstand the effects of heat, rainfall, storms and other climatic events.

Outdoor Blinds

Outdoor blinds can add a suitable level of privacy to your decking and you can enjoy the space without worrying about the neighbours peaking in on your good time. Select a sturdy and durable fabric with your selection of colour to suit your home’s design. Like patio furniture, you can choose styles that match the façade of your home. You can find modern roller blinds just as easily as you can acquire vintage shades.

Depending on your style and budget, you can install manually adjustable blinds, or you can choose remote-controlled blinds. There are choices available for everyone’s budget.
