Pool Shade Structures that Stand Out
If you’re gearing up for poolside parties, maybe this is the year to look at pool shade structures to finish off your patio. Pool shade structures can be anything from a portable umbrella over a sturdy picnic table to a cedar or pine pergola with stylish seating. If you have an expansive area to fill, a larger 6 post pergola could provide the extra coverage you’re looking for. Creating more shade around your pool deck with a pergola kit can range from something simple like a 10×10 attached pine pergola to a 20×20 freestanding cedar pergola. This comparison shows options for the best patio coverage to create shade for your poolside retreat.
Best Pool Shade Structures
Sometimes the best pool shade structures are open enough for a little breeze to float through, and some offer more coverage. Our full size pergola kits offer 3 different coverage options: light, medium, and maximum.
For a more open feel, choose our Fedora Pergola Kit. You can order in standard sizes 8×8 through 20×20 in freestanding or attached.
If you’d like a mid-range amount of shade cover, our Sombrero Pergola Kit would be a good choice. Also offered in over 90 sizes and custom sizes, in attached or freestanding.
Our Big Kahuna Pergola Kit provides maximum coverage. You can choose any standard size 8×8 up to 20×20 in attached or freestanding. Custom size Big Kahuna are also available on request.
