Deck Design Ideas with a Pergola


A pergola above a deck can be an ideal breezy cover from the sun and rain without compromising on the outdoor feel. Often pergolas are combined with climbing plants for an extra natural look, but there are many other options. If you are looking for design ideas for your deck and pergola, browse our image gallery for inspiration and have a closer look at these popular designs:

Cabin Style Pergola

Built with wooden boards and beams, this is one of the best pergola designs for gardens and backyards. Complete the overall rustic look with woven pillows and a cosy seating area. You could even add a large iron lantern, for the finishing touch.

Pacific Wooden Pergola

This is one of the favourites among pergola ideas for decks or detached settings. The classic modern timber frame will provide ample shade for a seating area without obstructing the view. Your deck will instantly look more inviting.

Mediterranean Style Pergola

For a more romantic and warm look, consider a Mediterranean style pergola. These usually look a bit more rustic and rough, and flowering climbers will add the finishing touch. If you want to keep it a bit more modern, shade sails are an ideal solution.
