Food is certainly the main component when you dine at home. But an equally important thing is the setting. Most of the time homeowners opt to dine inside their residence. However, frequently dining indoors can become monotonous. You can spice up your home dining experience if you will dine in your yard or garden. Combine the serene and relaxing outdoor atmosphere with a fine menu and a great dining experience will be the result.
If you are intent on holding regular outdoor dinners, you should think about providing proper and comfortable shelter like a canopy gazebo for your family and guests.
What are the benefits of a canopy gazebo?
Protection from the weather:
Eating outdoors is very enjoyable. Sometimes, however, the weather may ruin your set up. No one would like the thought of scampering for the patio when a sudden downpour of unexpected rain occurs at the middle of your fine dinner. With a canopy gazebo you would not worry about the rain. Even if it rains, you and your guests can still enjoy the fine meal. This gazebo can also provide optimum protection from the sun. If you will hold a lunch outdoors, a gazebo as a canopy will shelter you from the harmful UV rays.
A basic 10x10 would only cost $90 or $100. On the other hand, a standard wooden gazebo may cost a thousand dollars or more. And that is excluding the fee for having a professional assemble it. Compared to permanent fixture gazebos like wooden ones, canopy gazebos cost less. Therefore, it will be the perfect choice for those who are on a budget and looking to save money.
Traditionally, gazebos are fixed structures. In these days, however, some homeowners simply cannot have fixed gazebos in their properties. That is especially true for those who have limited outdoor space. A Canopy gazebo, though, will not consume the valuable space in your yard or garden. It is made of light-weight materials that can be easily set up and transferred from one place to another. When you are not using it, you can simply store your gazebo in a shed or other storage space.
What is the best canopy gazebo?
Choosing your gazebo would be primarily influenced by the available space in your yard or garden. If you have limited space, a 10x10 gazebo would suffice. But if you have a large outdoor space, then there is no reason for you not to settle for larger gazebo.
When buying a canopy gazebo, you should also consider the frame. The frame is the main supporting structure of this type of gazebo. So it is advisable to go for one that has sturdy frames. Gazebos with steel or iron frames are the most durable types around, but those with aluminum frames can also last a long time.
Choosing The Right Outdoor Canopy
The many colors, styles and sizes in garden canopies makes it easy to find the right choice for a specific event, or to fit naturally into the landscape design. Most are made from weather-resistant polyester, or a sturdy polyethylene material. Both types are easily cleaned and will last several years.
Whether your backyard is large or small, formal or informal, there is a canopy size and style to fit. For the large yard, shade canopies up to 20x30 are excellent as a poolside shelter, party tent, outdoor dining area, or the centerpiece for a family or social gathering.
For the small yard or a tiny corner of a larger area, one of the popular 10x10 pop-up canopies works perfectly.
