Ways to Shade Your Outdoor Living Area Oct 22nd, 2012 When remodeling the outdoor area of your home, choosing innovative construction and designers specializing in thinking outside of the box can turn your permanent backyard renovation into an ever-changing oasis. Your private outdoor area is one of the few parts of your home that allows you to switch up traditional permanent fixes. Concrete roofing, “decorum” speaking, is a misnomer of the past. Experimenting with how you shield your outdoor living area from the sun will spruce up the décor for your deck or patio all year long. Unique and alternate options for weather protection allows you to create a variety of ambiances ranging from playful and festive to a disclosed and calming sanction. Out with the Old, In with the New Typically, roofs, gazebos, and umbrellas do the job when creating shade. Building a patio around an already matured branched-out full tree lets Mother Nature do the work, reinvents the role of the bark, and enhances creativity behind the design. Erecting a pergola during your remodel gives you the option to switch up your shading by using strips of fabric overhead to add a soft elegance to the clean lines of Lars Remodeling’s designs. Dramatically change the look of your outdoors by switching up the fabric to suit seasonal changes and holidays. Sometimes outdoor space just needs a little color for sprucing up. Putting sun-loving plants on the tops of a pergola creates a container garden that offers shade and aesthetic elegance. For a whimsical floral look, position large decorative vines to climb the pergola and augment shade. Styles used to jazz up a pergola are limitless and provide an enticing fresh look year round in a California garden.
