Shape: Pergolas also come in different shapes and deciding which shape is right for you will depend on the space you intend it to cover. Some feature extensions which you could adjust to fit different shapes.

Materials: Pergolas are made using different materials and prices often vary based on the material used. Those that feature wood works tend to be relatively expensive compared to those that make are made out of cedar or vinyl or aluminum. Besides that, the choice of material also influences function and appearance.

Shade: Your preference will guide you in deciding the amount of shade you will want your pergola to have. Some come with a lot of it while others just a little. However, you can boost the shading with the help of a vining vegetation.
