Patio gazebos are one of the most common additions to an outdoor living space, and with good reason. As you explore deck and patio design ideas, consider that patio gazebos provide an inviting, relaxing and functional element where friends and family can gather.
Two of the biggest advantages to adding a patio gazebo are durability and permanence. With other patio covering options, these two elements will almost always be a concern—for example, a canvas canopy will need to be removed in winter months in any regions where winter snow is common. A gazebo, on the other hand, is a permanent structure with a full roof—the only weather protection it may need is side coverings during the harshest weather conditions.
A patio gazebo can also be a great option for those whose outdoor living design tastes tend more towards "traditional garden". Gazebos are iconic features of classic garden designs, so if you took some inspiration from a whimsical English garden style when designing your patio and outdoor space, a gazebo will definitely feel right at home.
That's not to say gazebos can't work with more modern and contemporary design styles—they are now available in a range of styles, some of which sport the clean lines and updated design of many outdoor living spaces.
