Colorado Springs Pergola Ideas
Pergolas can go almost anywhere. They can be free-standing or attached to a house or porch roof. An attached pergola can give you a back porch feeling, while a free-standing pergola can add whimsy and fun to any portion of your property.
Popular places to build a pergola include over a deck, patio, outdoor kitchen, hot tub, poolside, or even over an outdoor gaming area. Pergolas provide partial shade, but they also define spaces. So if you’d like to create a separate adjoining space outdoors, a pergola is a perfect way to accomplish that.
Pergolas are not limited to right angles. Popular shapes include, but are not limited to, rectangle, square, hexagon, curved, round, and more. We’ve even seen a pergola used over a long covered walkway to provide shade and create a unique ambiance.
With a few adjustments in rafter, beam, or column shapes, plus the use of highly stylized accent brackets, a variety of looks can be achieved. Let our team know your preferences from rustic, modern, decorative, Craftsman, Celtic, Viking, Japanese, and more. Our team will advise you accordingly to achieve the desired result.
Your pergola material choice used to be highly dependent on the style you were going for. But today’s building suppliers have made low-maintenance pergola ownership for everyone. No matter if you want a rustic or modern look you can choose from pressure-treated pine, cedar, aluminum, vinyl, or composite materials.
