Why Your Patio Space Needs a Gazebo

Gazebos offer an ideal outdoor oasis for social entertaining, whether you want to house a hot tub under it or have a shelter for your outdoor dining or lounge space, these structures are very versatile in their use. Aesthetically, a gazebo also makes a great focal point for your backyard space and can extend the use of your patio into the winter season as well. 

What to Consider When Purchasing a Gazebo

If you’re looking to invest in a gazebo for your backyard space the following are aspects you must consider to choose a structure that complements your vision for you outdoor patio space:

Size

Your gazebo size is highly dependent on the backyard space you have available. Also consider how you wish to use the structure. As mentioned above, gazebos make great shelters for a home hot tub or even for entertaining with family and friends. If you plan on holding large outdoor gatherings, a larger gazebo may serve you better, as it provides more room for people and better accommodates a table and seats for entertaining–this assuming that you have the space for a larger model.

Style

There are numerous gazebo styles available to meet your functional needs and style preferences, at Canadian Home Leisure we offer three unique styles with a variety of selection in each style.

Open Air: Optimal for patio living in the summer as it gives you access to the breeze and still provides ample shelter for a hot tub in the winter months. 

Semi-Enclosed: Adds more privacy to the space, which makes it an ideal options for your hot tub!

Fully-Enclosed: The best option to keep off frigid winter winds and provide protection from bugs in the summertime. Fully-enclosed gazebos can be used as pool houses, hot tub rooms or even patio living rooms!

Material

Gazebos generally come in three materials, wood, vinyl or metal. Wood offers a nice finish; however, it will need yearly painting and staining to maintain their nice finish. Both vinyl and metal don’t require the maintenance that wood does, as they aren’t susceptible to warping or rotting.
