Pergolas & Parasols
Are you ready to host summer gatherings and lounge outside, but you’re worried about the heat? Don’t let the sun’s rays keep you out of your garden. At Harbour Lifestyle, we offer modern and luxurious outdoor shade solutions that elevate your outdoor style whilst protecting you from the sun.
Outdoor shade is a big consideration when selecting new garden furniture pieces. If you have a large garden that bears the brunt of the sun's full heat in the middle of the day, adequate shade is a must.
That’s why we offer a range of modern pergolas and luxury garden parasols that combine the best of functionality with style. Not only are these fantastic garden shade ideas that add an instant boost of aesthetic appeal, but they also provide comfort and protection from the elements. Let’s explore how they can elevate your outdoor space and add new heights of elegance and relaxation.
We all know prolonged sun exposure isn’t good for us. Plus, it’s just downright miserable to stand out in the sweltering heat. Pergolas and parasols provide a respite from intense sunlight on cloudless days, letting you enjoy barbecues, birthday parties, pool parties, and outdoor lunches without worrying. These structures add shaded relaxation zones to your garden, allowing you and your guests to spend time in nature, even during the peak hours of the day.
Beyond their functional benefits, our garden shade options add a touch of elegance and style to your outdoor space. With sturdy columns and a slatted roof, a pergola creates a captivating focal point. The structure can section off a seating area without completely blocking out the natural elements, allowing you to enjoy a lovely balance between shade and openness.
Our modern pergolas come with an array of luxury features. With adjustable side shades and roof slats, you can adjust to the exact level of shade and privacy you want. An innovative water drainage system ensures your furniture stays dry under the pergola even when it rains. Adjustable LED mood lights let you create a fun ambience for evening get-togethers. And if you want to add some warmth in the winter, check out our pergola heaters.
Parasols, on the other hand, offer a more flexible and portable shade solution. You can effortlessly integrate these garden canopies, which come in various colours, materials, and sizes, into any outdoor setting. From the patio to the poolside, parasols will fit right in wherever you need them. You can quickly move them to adjust to changing sunlight angles or to accommodate various activities throughout the day.
Use them to shade your dining set, outdoor bar, corner sofa, lounging chairs, or even an outdoor kitchen. With the right furniture and décor, you can create a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors, allowing you to embrace your living space to the fullest.
Incorporating outdoor shade into your garden design is a sure fire way to elevate its beauty, comfort, and functionality. From providing sun protection and enhancing comfort to adding style and versatility, pergolas and parasols offer it all.
Whether you seek a peaceful sanctuary or an inviting space for entertaining, outdoor shade structures let you make the most of your back garden. So kick back, relax, and take full advantage of summer.
