Whether part of an outdoor living space or a profitable outdoor dining area, having the right patio design completely transforms any patio or deck. For homeowners, an uncovered patio can be unlivable in extreme heat, and unusable during routine rain showers. For restauranteurs, an uncovered patio is an unreliable revenue source dependent on good weather. Do you have a patio in your home’s backyard, or as part of your restaurant, that is in need of an upgrade? If you are ready for a patio makeover, here are some inspirational ways to tackle your patio transformation.
Adding a modern pergola to your backyard, deck, or patio creates both shade and a water-proof barrier that will transform backyard living instantly. Whether you choose to construct a pergola attached to the home or as a standalone pergola, the design options are virtually unlimited. Modern pergolas, that are fabricated from light-yet-durable aluminum, and that are powder coated to stand up to the humidity and heat of South Florida, are truly versatile. Roof options can include a solid fixed roof for fulltime shade ideal for outdoor dining spaces. Alternatively, adjustable louvered roofs are capable of closing tightly to block out the rain, open partially to improve ventilation and create partial shade, or open completely for full sun exposure.
One of the best aspects of a modern pergola is how it can seamlessly encapsulate your outdoor living lifestyle. If your home design style evokes the tropical beaches of the Gold Coast, you can turn your pergola into an extension of the sandy beach vibe.
Take the solid-roofed pergola below as an example. The fixed roof creates full-time shade for a three-seat bar and protects the embedded TV mounted on a fixed rear wall. A roof-mounted patio fan adds extra air circulation to keep guests cool while they lounge in lifeguard chair-inspired bar stools. This patio transformation is as close to the beach as you can get.
If you like to bring a taste of your local neighborhood or your personal passions into your home decor, then you can seamlessly connect that theme throughout your outdoor living space. Take this design that evokes the wall murals of Miami’s famous Wynwood Arts District. Starting each morning with a daily yoga session basking in the glow of the ethereal sunrise of this pergola transformation pergola wall art will instantly reconnect you with your neighborhood.
For commercial properties like restaurants, country clubs, and hotels, patio transformation can be a real revenue driver. With the right pergola design choices, a once-unreliable patio dining space will become a seamless extension of your indoor dining room. Creating reliably available outdoor seating helps draw new customers and may turn that newly covered patio into a profit-driving center.
For restauranteurs looking to turn their uncovered patio into a reliable seating area, regardless of constant sun and incessant rain, there are many pergola ideas to explore. While straight forward rectangular pergolas often suit residential demands quite perfectly, in commercial spaces, SYZYGY Global crafts unbelievably customized footprints to meet each customers’ needs.
For example, for the world-renowned Boca West Country Club, we created a one-of-a-kind 21-zone, adjustable louvered roof pergola to cover the club’s new simulated driving range and attached café. The adjustable louvered roof can open in the cool mornings at sunrise, then close tightly at noon to block the powerful lunchtime sun and afternoon rain showers. The project expanded the covered seating area to 200, and protected the multi-purpose driving bays, establishing a new revenue stream from virtual golf lessons and small group interactive golf challenges.
For Jupiter Florida’s prestigious waterfront 1000 North Restaurant, SYZYGY Global created a massive covered patio transformation. With multiple satellite bars on the patio, the restaurant found the exposed outdoor dining area highly susceptible to excessive sun exposure and bad weather. To unify this space with an outdoor atmosphere of sophistication, we crafted a pergola spanning two buildings with two different elevations. The seamlessly integrated pergola created an additional 2000 square feet of reliably available outdoor dining space for the restaurant.
