If you’re buying a hardtop gazebo, you probably have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to be using it for. But gazebos have so many uses… look below for inspiration!
1 Eating meals (usually dinner)
There’s nothing quite like eating outside on a warm spring or summer night. But if you have tried to eat outside without a gazebo, you probably have some unexpected guests – bugs of all shapes and sizes, biting your body and ruining your food.
A gazebo gets rid of this problem. Just put the screens up and you can eat in peace. And if you get a gazebo that has the ability to hang light fixtures, you can turn it into a full outdoor dining room. You don’t have to eat outside every day, but it’s nice to have the option!
2 Healthy sun lounging
There is only so much lounging you can do in the sun. Harmful ultraviolet exposure can lead to sunburns, sun poisoning, and even skin cancer.
A gazebo lets you lay around outside without getting all of these negative ailments. Just make sure that you get a gazebo that has a transparent roof, or else you’ll be lounging in the shade instead of the sun.
3 Events and parties
It’s tough to get people into the backyard when you have a party. If the food, drinks, and people are all on the deck or inside the house, no one is going to randomly walk into the yard and have a good time.
That’s assuming you don’t have a gazebo, of course. With a hardtop, you can throw spectacular outdoor parties that everyone will love going to.
4 “Home base” in a big yard
Some homeowners have really big yards, to the point where going inside is a hassle.
A gazebo can act as sort of a “home base” where you can cool off, get a drink, and relax. Especially if you’re playing sports outside, this is huge!
5 Hot tub coverings
Last but certainly not least, homeowners put their hardtop gazebos over their hottubs.
- No annoying sunlight exposure during the day
- The ability to be in your hot tub when it’s raining or snowing outside.
- Some privacy, especially if people can see in.
That’s about it – gazebos are pretty straightforward, but there are a few main uses. Check out our hardtop gazebos to find one that’s right for you, then use the above for inspiration. Best of luck!
