backyard cabana ideasMany homeowners are discovering the advantages of installing roofed outdoor structures in their yards. By installing this element, you can add function and elegance while extending your living space. Perhaps, you’ve already been researching backyard cabana ideas. Landscape Solutions & Designs, Inc. can take those ideas and turn them into reality.

Turn Your Backyard Into An Asset With An Outdoor Shade Structure

When you install a backyard structure, you’ll elevate your outdoor experience. Protected from the burning rays of the sun and other weather elements, you can spend more time enjoying nature. Additionally, backyard cabanas offer many great benefits:

1. Aesthetics

Everyone wants a beautiful, outdoor space to entertain or just relax. An outdoor structure can be an eye-catching, focal point to any yard.

2. Function/Additional Living Space

North Carolina summers can be brutally hot. However, a roofed outdoor structure can offer much-needed shade. Just add some furniture underneath and you have more living space.

3. Value

An outdoor shade structure is a sought-after amenity. With more living space, you increase the value of your property.

4. Privacy

Whether you want to relax or entertain, no one wants the prying eyes of neighbors spying on them. A roofed outdoor structure can provide privacy and seclusion.

5. Creates A Zone

Rather than a large, empty space, many homeowners create different areas in their backyards. An outdoor structure easily delineates a specific space for an outdoor room.

Types Of Outdoor Shade Structures

When deciding on an outdoor structure, many homeowners become confused over some of the different types:

  • Pergolas
  • Gazebos
  • Pavilions
  • Cabanas

While very similar, each structure is slightly different from the others. Typically, a pergola has a latticed roof with open sides offering gently filtered sunlight. With a solid roof, a gazebo offers more protection from the elements.

Comparatively, a pavilion is very similar to a gazebo. Both are open with a solid roof. However, a gazebo has a floor and is usually smaller with an octagonal or square shape. Typically, a pavilion is long and rectangular providing shade to a patio below. Finally, a cabana is a free-standing, closed-roof structure with one open side and 3 walls. Although most people associate these structures with a pool, cabanas have become a stand-alone element.

Usually, choosing the best outdoor shade structure for your backyard involves deciding on your needs and budget. A professional landscaper will ask you several important questions to determine the best solution:

  • Are you planning on entertaining a lot? Large or small gatherings?
  • Do you need a place to prepare food?
  • How much shade do you want?
  • What about amenities that require electricity?
  • Will you need a quiet retreat?

FAQs About Backyard Cabanas

Searching for a professional to bring your backyard cabana ideas to life? Landscape Solutions & Design, Inc. has been turning boring backyards into dream paradises since 2005. Below, we answer some common questions about backyard cabanas.

What’s The Perfect Size For A Cabana?

Generally, cabanas can be just about any size from 5 by 5 to 40 by 60 feet. However, the most common dimensions are 10 by 12 feet. These measurements are just slightly smaller than the average size bedroom.

Are There Different Types Of Cabanas?

While you’ll find varying styles, there are only 2 different types of cabanas. A temporary cabana is non-permanent and can be set up and taken down. Generally, manufacturers use powder-coated steel or aluminum for strength and weather-resistant detachable curtains.

Whereas a permanent cabana construction is very similar to building a house. Of course, you’ll want to choose materials that are long-lasting and durable especially if you’re installing plumbing and electricity. Thus, brick, stone, wood, and vinyl are all good choices.
