Ways on Updating Pergola

It’s fun to re-do home decor, rearrange furniture or even change the color of house paint once in a while or if the budget permits. The same thing goes with the exterior of your home. If you have existing pergola sitting on the side of your home, looking boringly normal, well then maybe it’s about time to give it a facelift to make it more enticing. Here are some suggestion’s you’d want to consider:

Paint Pergola

Simple paint will do significant uplift to your old pergola. What would be challenging is the color choice. A dark paint for wooden pergola will make it look new. Light paint will make it brighter and highlight the pergola more.

Add Trellises to Existing Pergola

The aesthetic appeal is mostly visible when incorporating trellises to the pergola. Plants and vines can grow along the structure which adds wow factor. Merging trellises to your pergola makes for an incredibly good looking spot in any garden. This not only is what attracts the eyes, it will also make a good spot for a simple party like tea party or simple chit-chat with friends.

Incorporate canopy or screen to the pergola

You will have to know for a fact that pergola will not provide much shade, or will they protect against rain, so adding a roll out canopy or screens on pergolas can make it more comfortable.

Build a bench seat at the pergola

The permanent or removable bench makes the pergola more inviting. It will surely magnetize you to spend more time in the area. It would also be a good spot for reading a newspaper or finishing your novel once and for all. Adding pillows will also make the bench more appealing.

Hang Down Curtains

Placing curtains on your pergola will make it more look private. Adding curtains will also make it cozier.
