This is one of the cooler modern pergola setups that I have come across, most likely because of the distinctly geometric roofing and awesome stacked stone columns that make up the base. Most pergola ideas that I have come across are all-wood designs and do not really incorporate many other materials or textures. I love the mixture of stone and stucco here because I think that it gives the patio so much more dimension than a plain wood pergola would have. I would not be surprised at all to see looks like this used for more modern pergola designs this year because I think that so many homeowners would love a look like this in their backyard. Now, thanks to the internet, we are exposed to so many more styles and designs than we ever have been before.
This modern pergola design is giving me all of the backyard inspiration right now -- in fact, I think that I am going to have our contractor build one over our patio this summer. Most pergola designs that I have looked at feel very Italian country-side or California vibey to me so, although I love the concept of one, I don't think that it would fit within the exterior architecture of our home at all. That is until I found these photos. Perhaps it is the combination of the dark columns and natural wood roof, or maybe the clean geometric lines rather than the curvature of most plans I have seen, but everything about it just speaks to me. I don't even think that I have to look at other backyard pergola ideas after this.
After looking through so many photos, I am realizing that it is not as easy as you would think to find a modern pergola design. Most have a more traditional or rustic vibe to them just by nature of the structure I suppose, but I am really hoping that somebody can direct me to more sleek and contemporary patio pergola ideas. These photos are the closest that I have found so far, but even so, I would not call this "modern" by any stretch of the word. I am thinking that if I could make our pergola a little bit more geometric, or even paint it in a dark color, it would help to give it a little bit more edge. I would need to keep it simple with pergola covers as well because I think that those can make the designs lean more traditional as well.
Even though we were hoping for a modern pergola at our new house, I will certainly settle for this slightly more rustic design. My dream was to be able to incorporate some really cool modern pool designs beside a large pergola to create a sort of faux pool house out back for extra entertaining. Although this is not exactly what I was looking for, I actually really love this space because it almost makes me feel like I am on and island vacation with the paneled roof and large hand covered dining area. Patio pergola designs like this are very "California" to me, which is not necessarily a bad thing, just not necessarily my personal style. All in all though, I am very please with our outdoor spaces.
I am a little bit confused at what a modern pergola design is considered to be these days -- is it just very simple and geometric lines like ours (picture here) or is the slight detailing on our columns more on the traditional end. I really want to revive our outdoor pergola area, but the rest of the home is done in a very modern style so I want this section to match that theme. Obviously one of the first things that will need to go is the furniture but, before we replace it, I want to make sure that the major architectural elements are what we want. To be honest, I am not really sure how you carry a contemporary theme throughout garden patio ideas, but I am definitely open to suggestions and am on here to learn.
As a contractor, I am delighted to present this recently completed project, where I had the opportunity to enhance the beauty of a modern home with a distinctive pergola design. The striking modern pergola placed over the front door operates not only as a visual statement but also extends to cover the front patio, creating a unique and inviting entrance area. Its generous size of 13 feet by 13 feet ensures it is an eye-catching feature, while its solid white color complements the clean lines and minimalist aesthetics of the house.
The pergola designs attached to house are increasingly gaining popularity among homeowners looking to elevate the curb appeal of their dwellings. A well-designed pergola can provide a sense of openness and airiness, which is emphasized in this project with an unobtrusive, minimalist design that still offers shelter over the doorway and patio. The pergola's purpose is twofold - it expands the living space and adds a dramatic touch to the home's facade, attracting admiration from all who pass by.
Modern pergola design ideas often emphasize simplicity, but also focus on functionality and harmony with the existing architectural style. In this project, the solid white pergola seamlessly blends with the house, creating an aesthetic continuity that is very pleasing to the eye. The contrast between the gray patio pavers and the white pergola adds interest and depth to the design, while also ensuring durability and easy maintenance.
Investing in a pergola can significantly enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home and provide a shaded area to enjoy the outdoors. With various modern pergola design ideas available, homeowners can find a design that complements their home's architectural style and meets their unique needs. As a contractor, I take delight in bringing these design ideas to life, creating visually appealing and functional spaces that homeowners can enjoy for years to come.
