A beautiful pergola not just invites people to spend time in your home, but it also increases your home value. If you love to decorate your backyard, then sprucing up your pergola is a great way to spend your time. The good news is that many pergolas designs and decorations do not cost an arm and leg and can go a long way in creating a stunning backyard oasis for you.
Here are some of the most popular pergola designs we have selected for you.
What’s more affordable than adding plants to beautify your pergola? As a tribute to nature, you can decorate your pergola with any number of fragrant flowering plants, cascades of foliage, hanging beautiful succulents and cacti in potted plants in your pergola.
In addition, you have a huge range of vibrant flowering plants like bougainvillea, bower vines, sweet potato vines, hibiscus, and lisianthus that you can grow in the summer season that can give your pergola a pop of color.
Another great way to decorate your pergola is to fill it up with various types of lighting. Depending on your preference, you can get cool or warm lightings to illuminate your pergola during the cool Arizona nights. However, don’t just stop there. Adding one or two or several accent lights can enhance the beauty of your pergola.
It is a good idea to place strings of fairy lights around the columns and beams of your pergola. In addition, you can also add beautifully designed hanging lamps, including chandeliers, pendant lights, and Chinese lanterns to give your pergola an air of festivity.
Welcome the Chirps
If you are a bird lover, you can make your pergola more interesting by suspending a birdbath or a birdcage from the blades of the pergola. It depends on you whether you want a decorative cage with artificial birds or want to actually put some birds in your cage.
If you do decide to have real birds, make sure you clean the cages regularly. You do not want your pergola to smell like guano. Hearing the chirping of the birds can relax your mind and put you in a good mood instantly.
Drape It Over
The Arizona sun can be scorching; therefore, it is a smart idea to add some drapes or screens on your pergola so that you protect your skin as well as prevent any furniture from fading. There are various types of covers you can use including cool curtains made of flowing cloth or a picturesque folding screen.
You can also use these drapes for privacy if you want to have a romantic time with your significant other.
If you want your pergola to be a place where all members of your family can have fun, it is a great idea to add a swing seat or a bench to the pergola. This can make a wonderful addition, not just for the kiddies, but for fun-loving grownups as well.
Alternatively, you can also add a hammock to your pergola. This is a great option if you like to curl in with a book or just spend the day hanging out in your backyard.
