Considerations in Choosing a Gazebo Design

There are many different types of gazebo designs. How do you find a gazebo that works for your outdoor space? Let’s take a look at a few considerations to keep in mind when choosing a gazebo design. 


How much space do you have to allot to a gazebo? A large gazebo might feel out of place if you have a small backyard. If you have a large yard, a small gazebo could be a nice feature, but you also have the option of building a large gazebo.     


What is your budget? The amount of money you can afford to spend on a gazebo will dictate the available options. If you enjoy DIY projects, you can save money by building your gazebo.


How do you want to use the gazebo? It is helpful to think about the intended purpose of the gazebo when reviewing designs and styles. Do you want to set up a dining area and host parties? Do you envision relaxing by the poolside? Do you plan to set up a hot tub in your gazebo? Do you want to use the gazebo for multiple purposes at the same time?  


Where will your gazebo be located? It is helpful to think about the setting where you will place a gazebo. If your gazebo is next to a pool, you may want to consider selecting a gazebo that you can easily enter from the water. If your gazebo is in a highly manicured garden, you may want to choose a gazebo with special design elements that complement the surroundings. 

Now that we have reviewed some important considerations for choosing a gazebo, let’s take a look at some backyard gazebo ideas. 


Gable roof gazebos

Gable roof gazebos come in many sizes, and this structure is large enough to serve multiple purposes at once. Enjoy the shade for dinner, drinks, and a game. Gabled roofs are versatile, spacious, and breezy. If you live in a hot climate and want to maximize the breeze flowing through your gazebo, this gable roof is a great choice. Compared to the popular hip roof style, gable roof gazebos allow for more ventilation. Additionally, the steep slant of the gable roof quickly sheds water and snow.
