The best thing I bought this summer - a retractable pergola

 


Today’s blog post is one I have been dying to write about for a while now. I often like to share with my friends and family things that I have recently purchased, giving my own mini-review and recommendations. Well, let me tell you, my friends and family have definitely heard me go on about this product for a while now and some of them have even got their own thanks to me! What is this mystery item I hear you ask? Designer Shade Solutions retractable roof pergola that’s what! I am going to tell you everything you need to know about these amazing shading structures and hopefully have you hopping on the trend too.

So, what are retractable roof pergolas?

The best place to start is probably with this question... what are retractable roof pergolas? To put it simply, retractable roofs or louvre roofs as they are also known, are pergolas with a roof that can tilt to create shade, open to maximise sunlight or shut to protect from heavy showers. This means that these “modern pergolas truly allow you to be outside more (and protect you from the elements)” as mentioned by Dork Face in a recent blog. Since having my own retractable pergola roof I have experienced a range of different weather conditions and I can confidently say not one has stopped me from enjoying my beautiful garden space.



What if my garden isn’t big enough?

This next question is one I’ve commonly heard whenever I’ve told anyone about my retractable pergola. Thankfully, there’s an answer to this! Designer Shade Solutions “offer an entirely bespoke experience” as said by Life on the Lock, so they can create the perfect pergola to suit your criteria. For example, when installing my pergola, I chose to have it as a stand-alone piece in my garden, but you can alternatively attach your retractable roof to your property as an extension or have it custom built to your desire. Not only this, but I also added heating to my pergola so that I can continue to enjoy it even in the winter. Who knows maybe I’ll spend Christmas morning relaxing there!



The best investment option

My final persuasion point on these structures is the excellent investment option that they offer. Moving and Improving admits that  “a pergola on its own is more likely to provide broken shade than full shade coverage”, not to mention the lack of protection they offer against wind and rain. Retractable roofs are clearly worth the investment in this sense as they offer practicality as well as visual appeal, unlike traditional pergolas. They can even help to increase your property value too so, what are you waiting for?

What do you think?

So, there you have it, a retractable roof pergola - the best thing I bought this summer (and maybe even this year). Will you be contacting Designer Shade Solutions for your bespoke structure? Get your garden ready for the colder months and hold on to those warmer days spent outdoors for a little longer.
