St. Louis Pergolas by Archadeck, Shade for Outdoor Dining area

St. Louis Pergolas by Archadeck – Shade for Outdoor Cooking and Dining

Picture this… the end of a long work week and you’re ‘kicking back’ on your deck or patio under a pergola. Peaceful right?

Outdoor living spaces are often the absolute best escape for relaxing in solitude, hanging out with the kids, gathering with friends, cooking and dining.

And pergolas are an excellent way to turn an outdoor area into an ‘outdoor room’, economically.

In Greater St. Louis, custom designed pergolas are a trending backyard shade structure because of their unique qualities to promote comfort and style… providing that oh-so-perfect ‘finishing touch’ and focal point for your outdoor living space.

Pergola design and building considerations include:

  • What is the purpose of your pergola?  Shade for a pool or spa? Shade for a garden?  Or an integral part of a deck or patio to create an outdoor room effect?
  • What is an adequate size for your pergola?  Not so large as to become overwhelming… and not too small to be ‘lost’.
  • What colors and types of building materials will complement your home, backyard, personal preferences and budget?  Wood?  Cedar?  Vinyl?  A combination?
  • What accessories for your pergola are applicable?  Lighting, fans or electrical connections? Read the rest of this entry »

It’s nearing the end of a busy work week and the three-day holiday weekend is approaching… an ideal occasion to carve out some ‘outdoor living’ time on the patio or deck under a pergola.  Pergolas create an outdoor room, beautifully and economically.

And for this reason, custom-designed pergolas are a St. Louis favorite when it comes to backyard shade structures.  Shade pergolas provide a well-defined focal point for any outdoor space and a ‘finishing touch’ for stylish outdoor living in comfort.
