3 Creative Pergola Ideas to Try

There’s no denying that fall has arrived. The sound of leaves crunching beneath your feet, the vibrant hues of the trees and temperate autumn temperatures are all reasons to improve your outdoor living space by investing in an outdoor structure such as a steel pergola. With nearly inexhaustible design options and the ability to carve out purposeful spaces, steel pergolas can help extend your time spent outside well past summer and fall months.

For those in search of a stylish and modern way to upgrade their outdoor living space this fall, here are three creative steel pergola ideas to try.

  1. Pair your pergola with a firepit to create an outdoor social gathering spot

Nothing is better on a clear fall evening than gathering around a firepit with friends and enjoying the warmth as it cuts through the crisp air. Thankfully, steel is a noncombustible material, so you can create a safe outdoor room for year-round gathering and good conversations. You will be able to rest easy knowing that stray sparks won't set the structure ablaze or affect its beauty.

  1. Assemble a steel pergola in any landscape, from expansive yards to small gardens

With the ability to incorporate these versatile outdoor structures into almost any backyard layout, pergolas can transform any landscape, even a small garden, into a usable outdoor space. Assemble it in an underutilized part of an open, lackluster backyard to create a modern focal point in the landscape, while creating a sanctuary for lounging or tending garden planters.

  1. Use a steel pergola to create a designated space for outdoor dining

Adding function to a bare deck, pergolas can help carve out a purposeful and defined outdoor living space to enjoy dining al fresco with family and guests. Finish setting the scene with contemporary outdoor dining furniture, potted plants and lighting accessories, like modern farmhouse inspired floor lanterns.
