The sunshiny season of summer is upon us, and so is the time to stay outdoors and take in the fresh, cool air. Pergolas add to the lovely atmosphere of the sunny season – a part of the reason why homeowners like having them in their garden.
If you have a pergola installed in your outdoor space and are looking for ways to add to its beauty, keep reading to find out ways to decorate your pergola and enhance its beauty.
1. Hang Edison Bulbs
Keep your pergola lit at all times with Edison bulbs. Hang strings of Edison bulbs on the ceiling of your pergola. Or if your pergola is void of a roof, you can place the lights on the walls or the poles of the pergola. This will give a beautiful effect in the evening or at night. The lights will illuminate your outdoor space beautifully and will be attractive to onlookers.
Note that Edison bulbs are cheap and easy to get from any nearby store. You won’t have any trouble finding them and decorating them in your pergola.
2. Potted Plants
If not Edison bulbs, you can decorate your pergola with small potted flowering plants. This will add greenery and lovely scents in your outdoor space. Some of the best pergola plants you can get are as follows:
3. Suspended Chandelier
This is a great option when you want your pergola to look classy and dressy. You can also have a long table or comfy sofas under your pergola where your friends and family can hang out.
You can find several types of suspended chandeliers on the market today. They are available in different styles, such as a globe-shaped, rectangular chandelier, etc. The most popular one includes a candle chandelier for unforgettable beauty and luminosity.
4. Add Curtains
Opt for curtains when you want to have a pergola-covered deck. Besides privacy, curtains add a dramatic effect. The best material to get your outdoor curtain in is Olefin – also known as polypropylene. You can also create your own pergola curtain using cotton fabric. Ideally, look for a fabric in a dark shade to avoid getting it dirty quickly.
5. Bonsai Shelves
Another wonderful way to decorate your pergola is by having a bonsai display. Depending on the size of your pergola, you can have a bonsai shelf accordingly.
For a spacious pergola, get a large bonsai shelf to suit the area. This is a lovely way to fill your pergola with natural greenery.
These decoration ideas are easy (and affordable) to implement in your pergola. Use any of them that suit your liking and turn your pergola into a ravishing space.
