Freshen Up the Backyard
A backyard space is full of opportunity. It can be a place for cozy outdoor lounging, decadent dining, and other modes of al fresco entertainment. One way for backyard entertainers to “wow” is by building a gazebo.
Gazebos provide a stylish focal point for the backyard where family and friends can gather. They shelter friends and family from the elements, so a party doesn’t have to break up because of a thunderstorm or blazing midday sun. No matter your entertaining and decor styles, these terrific gazebo ideas can help you make the most of your outdoor space.
For a patio setting that’s always protected, place outdoor furniture beneath a gazebo. This fully furnished, cozy-couch aesthetic is comfortable and modern. Installing plank flooring levels potentially uneven earth, and adds to the “I’ve moved my living room outdoors” vibe.

Here’s an idea for those looking for gazebo ideas that add a touch of luxury to the backyard: Place the gazebo’s legs in large planters and fill the planters with crisp white rocks. This detail doesn’t just look first rate, the rocks will also help hold the gazebo in place. Top off the luxe look by hanging a chandelier over the patio dining table.
