Prolong Outdoor Entertaining With An Enclosed Garden Structure

(HIT) - Outdoor entertaining is sweeping the nation with its popularity. As porches, gazebos, and pergolas become outdoor rooms fit for any event from rustic to luxurious, it’s hard to imagine a get-together in your dining room ever again! As fall approaches, many people are thinking the same thing. Installing an enclosed garden structure will provide a party-spot away from the house that is as versatile as the outdoor living space. An enclosed structure can be used for simple storage, a studio, a quiet retreat, or party central! And, as people consider winter storage, winter entertaining, and the fear of being cooped up in the house for the rest of the season … autumn is the perfect time to get an enclosed garden structure.

But, what are the options?

Enclosed Gazebo: While the classic gazebo is constructed with open walls and decorative railings, it doesn’t have to be designed that way. Many people choose to put walls and even window systems into their gazebos to create little guest homes, studios, and hide-aways. Available in the very recognizable octagon shape, you can also create a rectangular, square, oval, or hexagon shaped gazebo! These structures are perfect on decks are available in cedar, pine, and even vinyl.

Cabana: While a cabana originally referred to the island huts located in tropical locales, the definition has definitely broadened! A cabana is at home in any backyard, poolside, or garden and, unlike a gazebo, is always enclosed with windows. Many people choose to embrace the rustic feeling of a cabana with a cedar interior, louvered shutters, and sun dial arch cutouts to let natural light flood through the top of the walls. Outfitted with French doors and a stylish cupola, this structure is likely to give your home some competition for most fashionable structure!

Pool House: A pool house is obviously the perfect structure if you have a pool, but they work just fine even if you don’t have one! Pool houses were created for entertaining; many models even have a built in concession bar so you can put out snacks and drinks for your family and friends. Others have an enclosed section for changing in and out of swimwear, as well as an attached porch for outdoor socializing. Pool houses are also great if you concentrate the majority of your summer entertaining around your pool. Use it all summer for changing and amusement, and then use it to store all of the pool supplies over the winter.

Gone are the days of building a low-quality storage shed in the backyard to hold the lawn mower and thinking there aren’t any other options. With the rising popularity of stylish outdoor living, garden structures like gazebos, cabanas, and pool houses are becoming more available and more customizable to fit every homeowner’s needs.
