Hosting an outdoor dinner on your patio?Pergola Depot
Dreaming of an outdoor Thanksgiving feast? Dining out for that special event is one that you and your guests will remember for years to come, and your patio cover can make all the difference in creating the perfect atmosphere. A fixed patio cover like a gazebo or pergola, offers a stable structure that will quickly become the centerpiece of your back yard, not only for your holiday gathering, but for any day of the year. A quick way to bring it all together is by choosing a freestanding or attached pergola kit that you can install yourself in a weekend, or have your local landscaper do it for you! Wood pergolas in particular are timeless, and can be enhanced by creating a patio base using building materials ranging from poured concrete to natural flagstone, brick, or natural stone. Finishing touches for your beautifully crafted patio can be as simple as a set of string lights that can remain attached year-round, to an elaborate fire or water feature to gather around during your event. Shown here are two attached cedar Big Kahuna pergolas (one in Maine, and one in New York City), and a freestanding custom 20’x16′ freestanding Big Kahuna that provides plenty of cover for this Texas patio.
Since outdoor dining is weather-dependent, a good way to ensure you can still relax outside for your upcoming holiday gathering is to create a permanent cover. Covered patio kits can be configured for your unique space whether you’re in the city, suburbs, or surrounded by open space. Whether you’re in New York City or Flagstaff, Arizona or anywhere in between, browse ideas on our Pinterest or Facebook, or flip through a few design magazines local to your area to create a comfortable and memorable covered patio dining room!
