The Top 3 Dreamiest Pergolas to Inspire You


Summer will begin in 129 days, but who’s counting? While the ground is covered in snow and ice and the only thing on our mind is keeping warm, we have our sights on summer and while warmth is months away, you should be thinking about your outdoor living space well before then. Typically, the dedicated independently owned Four Seasons Sunrooms & Windows dealers nationwide become busy as soon as the beginning of March and the outdoor living building season is in full gear by April. To get first on the list and have your outdoor living space ready just in time for summer and before your neighbors, be sure you contact your local dealer today. Below are some of our favorite Pergola designs to inspire the outdoor living space of your dreams.
Hanging Hammocks


This wheat-toned pergola with miter end caps gives this tropical backyard space a very modern feel. With stoned stairs leading up to an inviting hammock, this pergola is the perfect space to kick back and relax with your favorite book. The tremendous flexibility of our Elitewood Ultra Series pergolas lets you select the amount of shade your pergola will provide, from total 40% to 60% total shade. You can even combine styles to give you a pergola that will provide full protection from rain or sun! With a traditional style open-lattice cover, you can give the space a cooling ventilation effect within the living area, while keeping the blaring sun out.

Fire Pits and Places

One of the hottest colors of 2019 for outdoor living solutions will be the dark-toned aluminum ones. Our favorite is this brown patio cover with corbel end caps. This pergola, providing 60% shade, allows just enough light in. What makes our Ultra Series pergolas different from other aluminum patio products is our multi-step coating system that chemically cleans the aluminum sheet and is then followed by a baked-on primer and a finishing coat of an ultra-tough carbon/fluoride bond. This brings our Ultra Series pergola performance ratings to “EXCELLENT” wen it comes to stain and chemical resistance, exterior durability, salt spray resistant, fade and color resistant, and gloss retention. But what makes this particular pergola special is the add on of a custom-made outdoor fireplace. During those, dare we say it, COLD summer nights, this fireplace will bring in just enough warmth to allow the party to continue well into the night.


CURTAINS AND COMBINATION COVERS

Use your imagination to design a combination pergola/patio cover featuring both open style and solid style sections. This feature will allow you to enjoy your outdoor living space on the hottest days of the summer as well as the coolest (and every day in between). With a combination pergola/patio cover, you can virtually custom design your structure to meet your every need for a total outdoor living experience. What makes this space stand out to us is the use of curtains. Utilizing curtains to both close out sunshine and wind, as well as create an immediate sense of privacy will bring a totally different scene to your outdoor space when YOU want.

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

Summer is finally here; a season to be carefree, laid-back, and relaxed, right? If you frequently entertain during the summer months, you may be thinking this time is anything but relaxing! After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations. The bes…
