The Ultimate Pergola Seating Area for Your Business
A global pandemic was never going to be easy for businesses that thrive on bringing people together. But with every challenge and rule change, restaurants, hotels and bars continue to adapt.
It’s hard to see how the last year could benefit the hospitality sector. But difficult circumstances have brought forward new ways of thinking about business premises.
Most of all, businesses have been thinking in new and bold ways about their outdoor areas, layout and seating space.
Of course, outdoor seating poses its own challenges. Outdoor areas can be cold, noisy and look unappealing. But there is one efficient and beautiful way to transform your outdoor space.
For businesses short on space, a pergola seating area has become a game-changing way to turn spare outdoor space into premium, practical seating space.
But what can a pergola seating area do for your business?
Charm your Customers with a Pergola Seating Area
A pergola consists of posts, beams and rafters that create an appealing focal point. You can attach a pergola to your frontage or let it stand freely. The rafters above prove functional as well as aesthetically pleasing, whilst the area below is left open for you to arrange seating.
One major benefit of a pergola is its appearance. Overhead rafters create an inviting al fresco environment that can be seen from the street. You can incorporate lattice work into outside walls, adding to the visual appeal.
The frame of the pergola itself offers a natural place for greenery to grow, or for the addition of lighting. A pergola can transform a lacklustre courtyard, patio or rooftop space into a vibrant, attractive atmosphere.
A pergola is also a great way to introduce some structure to an outdoor space. You’ll find it easier to influence foot traffic for customers and staff. This can help keep customers safely apart when distancing matters most.
If you want to enclose your pergola seating area from the street, it’s easy to fence off the sides of the space for extra privacy.
But what about the weather? With a retractable pergola cover or polycarbonate canopies it’s easy to provide shade in summer or shelter from the rain in the cooler months without compromising on natural light.
Pergola seating areas also have room to accommodate outdoor heaters as the year draws on, allowing you to create a magical winter space.
