For homeowners looking for ways to expand the size of their outdoor living space, patio gazebos is one way to help you do this. With a gazebo built around or attached to your patio, you can have a sheltered space right off your living room where you can enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year. The many different types of patio furniture that you can add to the gazebo can make this the favorite room of the home.
Just because the gazebo is attached to the patio doesn't mean you are limited in your choice of designs. You can choose to have hexagon, octagon, square or rectangular as the shape of the structure and the size is completely up to you. As with other types of gazebos, you can also purchase a kit that has all the instructions and materials you need to make this a do-it-yourself project. There are also professionals that will build the gazebo for you right on the site and all you have to do is watch.
The typical gazebo attached to a patio is made from red or white cedar, but you can choose the type of wood you prefer. Some of the options you can choose include a cupola, a screen, windows, doors and even a ramp. If you have always had a patio and now you have a new gazebo attached, you may want to look at having some newer and cozier furniture because it is likely you will be spending more time than ever in this part of your home.
