With Spring just around the corner, the only thing I can think of is spending more time outside with my little ones. With spring comes beautiful blooming flowers, colourful chirping birds and, hopefully, a bit of sun – it’s the best time to be outdoors. However, I’d like to use my garden all year round. Is that too much to ask?
I know, I know… I should be used to the English weather but I’m not. The garden is part of my home, so I want to make the most out of it rain or shine. I want to use my outdoor space during spring, summer, autumn and winter. So, it’s time for a change, or better, an addition! A retractable pergola by Designer Shade Solutions seems like the solution (for the lack of a better word) that I’ve been looking for.
What is a retractable pergola?
Retractable pergolas are modern pergolas that feature a retractable roof, giving you the flexibility of being outdoors whether it is raining or sunny. As the Rare Welsh puts it, “From the outside looking in, these modern pergolas might look like traditional pergolas at first. However, being able to retract the roof of your pergola to either an open, closed or tilted position will no doubt prove to be a very useful and convenient feature for you, in comparison to older models of pergola.”
Why add a retractable pergola to your garden?
Versatile outdoor structures.
These pergolas with retractable roofs are incredibly versatile. Not only can they be installed anywhere in your patio, garden, terrace as self-supporting structures but these can also be attached to your property as an extension to your current space. Wood Create recommends adding a retractable roof pergola to shelter outdoor areas, such as outdoor pools and outdoor dining areas.
Bespoke shading solutions.
As Sims Life mentions, “The retractable roofs by Designer Shade Solutions can be fully customised to meet your requirements and can be complemented with heating, lighting or side glass screens to create a complete weatherproof space.” Retractable pergolas can be crafted to suit your requirements. So, make sure to talk to the experts and discuss what you’d like in the perfect pergola.
Maximise your outdoor space.
What I mostly like about these innovative pergolas is the fact that you can fully enjoy your outdoor space all year round. You can, finally, make the most out of your outdoor space. I can already imagine myself sitting below my retractable pergola in the middle of a rainy day enjoying a warm cuppa and my favourite book.
I’m not the only one that’s after a retractable pergola. Midlands Traveller recently commented “A pergola with a roof that can retract seems like the perfect addition to any home. Plus, the fact that it will allow me to enjoy my outdoor space all year round, sounds like a no-brainer.”
