Living in Rancho Palos Verdes, sunny, beautiful weather is abundant. Enjoying outdoor spaces year-round is one of the biggest benefits of living in this area. Designing a beautiful yet functional yard or deck is key to utilizing this weather to its fullest. A pergola is an optimal structure for homes in Rancho Palos Verdes. Pergolas designs are incredibly easy to add a unique touch to, making them a personalizable addition to any space.
If you are looking for a pergola that gives you the option of sun or shade, a louvered pergola roof is the way to go. A louvered roof has horizontal slats that are angled to allow light and airflow but keep out rain and heat. Louvered roofs are customizable; some have fixed slats, and others have slats that can rotate up to 180 degrees. Rotating slats are manual or automatic, allowing you to control sunlight and airflow at the push of a button. A louvered roof is the best design option for increasing the functionality and use of your pergola.
Roman-style canopy shades are the most elegant of pergola designs. The shade drapes horizontally across the pergola; some designs swag at different beams. It gives a pergola an ethereal, light look yet still provides shade. Some roman style canopies are also retractable, allowing for more sun into your pergola should you choose it.
If you have a green thumb, a natural vine canopy is the perfect design for your pergola. Natural vines help the pergola blend into a beautiful garden setting, providing shade consistent with the landscape. However, remember that you might not have shade in some dry seasons!
A woven canopy is excellent for those wanting to add a new design element to their pergola at home. You can select weather-resistant fabric in neutrals that compliment the color of your pergola, such as white or tan. Weaving the material in and out of the pergola beams can be done horizontally or at an angle, and it still lets plenty of natural light through. Plus, you can easily secure it using a staple gun, making it the ideal DIY project to spruce up your pergola!
