A pergola for a vacation atmosphere in your garden

19 June 2022

Happiness doesn’t always lie thousands of miles away. Sometimes all it takes is to rethink your home, add a few decorative elements or change a layout to breathe new life into your home. So it’s time to put our garden to good use and enjoy the return of the sun and fine weather.


Create a relaxing space in the heart of the garden with a pergola

By following these simple steps, you can create a relaxing space in the heart of your garden with a pergola. This will enable you to make the most of your outdoor living space and spend quality time with family and friends. What’s more, a pergola, as a new living space, is an investment that will add value to your property.

  1. Choosing the right location: Before you start building your pergola, you need to choose the ideal location in your garden. Look for a flat, easily accessible spot.
  2. Choosing the type and size of pergola: You can opt for a kit pergola, or design it yourself. Think about the dimensions of the pergola, the height and the materials you want to use.
  3. Preparing the site: Prepare the site by digging holes for the pergola posts and levelling the ground. If you want to add a wood or stone floor, you can do so at this stage.
  4. Installing the pergola: Install the pergola according to the manufacturer’s instructions or using your own construction plan. Make sure the pergola is stable and firmly anchored to the ground.
  5. Add garden furniture: To create a relaxing space, add comfortable garden furniture such as deckchairs, cushions and parasols. You can also add plants to add color and life to your space.
  6. Add lighting: To enjoy your relaxation area in the evening, add soft lighting, such as string lights or lanterns.
  7. Relax and enjoy your new space!

The pergola to structure spaces

The terrace and garden are the two elements that will enable you to enjoy the sunshine, relax, play with your children or even have a barbecue. To make these spaces more pleasant and conducive to relaxation, the installation of a pergola offers a setting that defines a new dynamic to our exterior.

A pergola lets you enjoy your outdoors all year round. With a plaid on a cool day, or in a bathing suit in midsummer, the pergola offers a solution for every climate. The pergola also creates different dedicated spaces in your garden/terrace, providing structure for relaxation, play, eating and family gatherings.

Bioclimatic pergola

The pergola: lean-to or freestanding

The pergola, a haven of peace where you can enjoy sunny days without worries.

Pergolas can be either wall-mounted, with two legs, or integrated into a terrace or patio. By adding it to your home, you create an extension to your living space or kitchen.

But you can also choose to install your pergola in your own garden. In this case, the pergola will be self-supporting, standing on four legs. With this model, you can place your pergola wherever you like in your outdoor space.

VERANDAIR® pergolas have a light, minimalist design using aluminum profiles. An aesthetic association for taking the time to live, rest or gather as a family.

The traditional pergola – with fixed roof

Halfway between a canopy and a veranda, the pergola is the perfect compromise! This permanent structure is a real shelter that protects you from rain and sun all year round, without darkening the interior of your home.

By adding it to your home, you create an extension to your living space or kitchen. You can also choose to install your traditional pergola in your own garden.

The bioclimatic pergola – with adjustable slats

The bioclimatic pergola has the same structure as the classic pergola, but has the advantage of a roof with adjustable slats. This means you can sunbathe even under your pergola. When you need protection (from the sun or rain), the slats can be closed. VERANDAIR® bioclimatic pergola roof slats can be adjusted by remote control.

A customizable pergola

The pergola can be customized to suit your needs and your home. The pergola can be placed on the terrace, adjoining the house wall or not, or in the garden. Aluminum pergolas are available with adjustable slats or a fixed roof. Profiles can be dyed in over 2,500 colors.

The pergola can also be used as a relaxation area with a few deckchairs or sunbeds. A true haven of peace for a moment of pure idleness.

The pergola can also house your summer dining room, so you can enjoy meals with friends or family without worrying about too much sun or a passing shower.

Last but not least, the pergola can be a space where you can gather with your family to enjoy an iced tea while overlooking your garden and children at play!

A vacation garden with a pergola

The pergola offers a convivial place to shelter from the heat or a shower. Decorative and naturally ventilated, it’s the perfect place to enjoy sunny days all year round!
