Pergola Ideas That Will Add Style and Shade to Your Backyard

Creating an outdoor space that's cool and comfortable can be a bit of a challenge; especially if there aren't any trees to block out the hot summer sun. Thankfully, it's easy to install a pergola that provides shade and style.


At Aqua Warehouse, we are proud to offer Remanso, luxury aluminium pergolas, that are sure to add shade and style to your outdoor space. With this in mind, here are five pergola ideas to make your back garden stand out from the rest.


Add some lighting

To fully enjoy your garden, its important to add some lighting for the evening. Whether it’s Edison bulbs or fairy lights, the right lighting can really add a warm feel to your outdoor space.


Enhance your space with potted plants

Feel free to make your pergola into a terrarium of sorts. You probably have potted plants on your patio already so add to the illusion by planting vines or even strawberries above your pergola. They’ll give you a nice shady spot to hang out away from the sun.


Create an outdoor dining space

With BBQ season right around the corner, you might be looking to create a space for outdoor dining. That’s why many people use the space under their pergolas as an outdoor dining room. A dining table could be added to the space if you have a large area in your garden for the new pergola.


An aluminium pergola would look great shading an outdoor bbq kitchen. Regardless of the size of your intended outdoor kitchen, a pergola can act as good protection for your devices from the elements. This is a fantastic centre piece for any garden, and you’ll love entertaining family and friends outdoors this summer. You can opt for a small outdoor grill or extend this to include a full kitchen setup.


Buy a luxury pergola

All of these pergola decorating ideas will help to bring life to your garden and pergola this summer. A pergola is the perfect solution for an outdoor dining and relaxation space. It provides extra room away from the inside of your house to socialise and chill out with friends and family this year.
