Decoration Ideas for Pergolas

As the weather starts to warm up, chances are you’ll want to spend more time outdoors. Your home’s patio should be a place you feel comfortable and relaxed. Pergolas are a great feature and provide some shade as well as allowing for multiple design and decoration ideas.

Naturally, pergolas provide a great place to hang things from. One easy way to make your outdoor space feel like an extension of your home is to hang some curtains. Be sure to use a cloth that’s weather friendly and be able to provide extra privacy and protection from the sun or wind.

You’ve probably seen pergolas decorated with string lights. Even though it can be a bit trendy, the idea makes a lot of sense. It’s fun and easy and provides a soft lighting to extend your gathering into the evening hours.

If your pergola is sturdy enough, it can support a swing. This is a fun and relaxing place to sit, whether alone or with a partner. What a great place to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of a long day! A hammock is another great piece of comfortable seating/lounging to hang from your pergola.

Adding plants such as vines to your pergola can make it look more natural and provide extra shade. A removable awning can allow you to enjoy the sun but cover up when it’s too intense. Many people use their pergola as an outdoor dining area. Whether you use a dining room table or picnic table, you can also hang a chandelier over it from the pergola.

There are plenty of types of pergolas that can be complemented by a variety of accessories. Make the space your own so you can enjoy your time outdoors. Visit Home Fire Stove and Grill City in Salem or give us a call at 503-364-6339 for more information.
