Pergolas have come a long way in recent years and are now considered more than an extension to the living area of your home. Whether it's integrating a veranda, a small pergola, or a full pergola into your outdoor area, they are a focal point of your home.
A pergola greatly extends the holiday feeling(also known as Une pergola prolonge considrablement la sensation de vacances in the French language), if you keep some points in mind.

You must take a few considerations when designing the veranda pergola:
- Decide Where You Will Position Your Pergola:
Most people choose to position their pergola next to a main living area like a kitchen or dining area to allow direct access via the main thoroughfare of the home. If your home has a fantastic view you may want to consider facing your pergola towards that direction, or you may have a particular part of your outdoor area that isn't being used where you would position your pergola.
- Decide How Big Your Pergola Needs To Be For Your Needs
When designing the size of your pergola you need to consider your furniture, traffic flow, open areas and even additional length in your roof to ensure weather protection. Small or large, a well-designed outdoor entertaining area will increase the enjoyment of your home and increase its resale value.
