Is your front garden large enough for a patio cover or pergola?
Unfortunately, not all front gardens are big enough for a patio cover or aluminium pergola. Is your front garden rather large? Then you’re in luck. Especially if you live in a secluded area or if your front garden is surrounded by shrubberies that keep nosy neighbours and passers-by from peeking in. Your patio cover then instantly becomes a sort of porch, giving your home a romantic and homely vibe. Are you not quite sure whether a patio cover in the front garden will be private enough? Don’t forget that you can always add sliding panels.
Keep it subtle
A patio cover in the front garden can look messy … unless you make sure it matches your house seamlessly! A white Camargue louvered roof pergola, for instance, is a perfect match for a modern white villa. Or, if your home looks rather rustic, why not opt for the Lapure in warm grey? However, no matter your taste, it’s always a good idea to choose your patio cover in the same RAL colour as the joinery to achieve a harmonious look.
Don’t forget about local rules and regulations
Finally, don’t forget that local rules and regulations tend to be rather strict when it comes to front gardens. Not all cities and municipalities allow patio covers in front gardens, so do your research beforehand to avoid unpleasant surprises.
