5 Ways to Decorate Your Pergola

5 Ways to Decorate Your Pergola

The addition of a pergola can uplift your garden, inviting relaxation and a space for entertainment and a closer connection to nature.

However, no cosy space is complete without a decoration or two. Today, Atlas Sheds will walk you through five decoration ideas for your pergola. 

This will help you unlock the potential of your garden space, unleashing your inner creativity. Why not add a garden shed to the mix to maximise your space? 

1. Climbing Plants and Floral Displays

Greenery can add a beautiful element to any feature. 

Adding hanging plants to your pergola or around the edge can help tie it into the rest of your garden. You could also opt for window boxes filled with daffodils, geraniums, lavender, and tulips. 

For climbing plants, options such as clematis and honeysuckle can add vibrancy and leave behind a lovely scent. Assess the growth speed and direction of your plants to choose the best option for your pergola. 

2. Lighting Solutions

Lighting can make a world of difference for late night gatherings in the summer or cosy afternoons spent reading in the garden. 

Fairy lights can add a whimsical glow to your pergola. These can be wrapped around the legs or draped down from the ceiling for a cascading effect. 

Combine this with solar-powered lights or spotlights for widespread visibility. Through this, a layered effect will be created, adding depth to your garden. Ensure that each fixture is safe for outdoor use.

3. Fabric Drapes and Canopies

Have you ever dreamed of having a private spot in nature, away from everyone else?

If so, you can create a cosy hideaway by draping fabric or adding a canopy to your pergola. For this, choose a weather-resistant fabric, such as polyester or acrylic, and nail it to the top of your pergola. 

Allow it to drape down, covering two or more sides of the pergola. You can customise this with a fastener so you can choose to open or close it for different occasions. 

For a modern and minimalist look, consider installing sail shades. These can be placed above or on the side of your pergola for sun protection. 

4. Outdoor Furniture

The choice of furniture is crucial when deocrating the area under your pergola; you want to create a cohesive look.

Think comfortable outdoor sofas, a contemporary coffee table, and some cosy blankets and pillows. To combat the UK weather, choose weatherproof materials, such as teak or synthetic rattan. 

This will create a cosy space for you and your family to catch up and enjoy the summer weather. You could even add a hammock for a serene, relaxing space.

5. Art and Ornaments

Adding elements of art and ornaments can personalise your pergola, reflecting your style. 

Create a focal point with a stone sculpture or outdoor shelves to store potted plants or garden tools. Wall decor, such as mosaic tiles, iron pieces, or waterproof paintings, can add detail and depth to your garden. 

To engage your other senses, wind chimes and water features can provide soothing background noise. These are the perfect elements for a meditation or yoga space; consider a water fountain or bird pool to attract wildlife.
