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 your outdoor patio space:
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 assumes that you have the space for a larger model.
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 selections 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 option 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!
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 its nice finish. Both vinyl and metal don’t require the maintenance that wood does, as they aren’t susceptible to warping or rotting.
