It’s amazing how simply adding an overhead structure can change the entire look and feel of a once boring grassy, harsh sunlight backyard into a gorgeous place to enjoy and entertain family and friends.

One of the best ways to elevate the look and feel of your backyard is by adding a quality built structure. The structure serves as the focal point, creating an outdoor room and a sanctuary. All that you have to do is decide how you want to utilize and design your space and what type of a structure would be best.

And it is important to research and compare the quality of a structure because you want it to last for years to come. In this blog, we’ll be presenting some outdoor room ideas to inspire you to transform your own backyard.

The Deck Pergola or Pavilion Addition- For limited backyard space, it all happens on the deck!

If you have limited backyard space, a pergola or pavilion is the perfect overhead solution to transform your deck into a beautiful outdoor room.

These structures can be attached to your existing deck, creating a covered outdoor room instantly. It provides shade if using a pavilion from the harsh sunlight or rain and can be used for multiple purposes such as outdoor dining area or a lounge space. If using a pergola with open rafters, you can add some string lights, climbing plants or hanging flowers to give it a more natural shaded roof.

Give your deck a fresh coat of paint or stain to complement your new structure’s color, add an outdoor rug, some comfortable chairs and coffee tables to finish the look. If BBQing is your thing, then add a dining room set with candles on the table, overhead ceiling fan, and large potted plants to the corners of the deck to complete the outdoor dining room. Your deck will become your favorite place to hang out.

The Backyard Activity Pergola Area- whether you have a pool, garden or backyard games, a pergola will be the new destination spot!

A pergola is a versatile structure that can be used for many different purposes. If you have a pool, a garden or like to play outdoor games, a pergola can serve as a destination spot to add character to your backyard. The structure can be designed with lighting and benches, creating a place for relaxation and enjoyment.

If you already have a fun backyard where the family like to play and hang out, adding a simple Cozy Retreat Wood Pergola suddenly carves out a room for taking a break from swimming, playing corn hole, or tending your flower and vegetable gardens.

Creating some fun ways to chill out whether it’s lounge chairs, outdoor couches, or some more rustic garden benches, you’ll certainly enjoy your new outdoor room.  Not only is the structure nice to sit under and relax in, but visually it becomes a focal point for any view from the yard or the house. A pergola addition could be just the right embellishment for your outdoor enjoyment.
