There are few things as relaxing as being able to enjoy your outdoor property in comfort and style. Unfortunately, many people don’t have the home amenities or accessories to do this.
If you want to enjoy a gathering or even a little quiet time outdoors but you don’t have a porch or patio, deck, outdoor dining area, or anywhere else to socialize, what can you do? Well, the first thing that comes to mind is buying a gazebo.
These convenient and easy to set-up structures can provide your family and friends with a great place to get out of the sun, get away from bugs, or simply sit and relax. Gazebos come in several shapes, sizes, materials, styles, and prices. Here are some of the many options:
Open vs. Netting vs. Enclosed
One of the first things you should consider when looking for a gazebo is what basic design best serves you and your families’ needs. The first of the 3 main choices is open. This is where your gazebo has no netting or other permanent enclosure surrounding it. It allows the fresh air and breeze to flow through. It also allows insects, dirt, and debris.
Many times open gazebos will have curtains or some other type of fabric that can temporarily cover the openings. A gazebo with netting keeps those pesky bugs and critters out at all times. Enclosed gazebos will do the same thing but they somewhat stifle the airflow, as well as the sounds and smells from the outdoors.
Pop-ups are one of the lowest-priced and easy to deal with options available. They’re usually made of fiberglass or comparable types of material and they go up and break down easily. It’s perfect for families that would prefer a structure that could be more temporary. They are also great for taking on the road and camping.
Lightweight and durable, they are very versatile in use. However, it should be noted that they should not be left up for extended periods and they are not built to withstand the elements continually.
These are among the sturdiest and most reliable of the gazebo family. Being made with anything from wood to steel to aluminum, hardtops are built to last. With these comes the same decision as with any other similar structure; open, closed, or netted?
Other than that, you also have a number of choices when it comes to manufactures and models. There are several options concerning size, design, colors/fabrics, and many other things as well.
