Add a fun, festive vibe with seasonally inspired patio décor. Your aluminum roof pergola makes this area an extension of your home you can enjoy throughout the year, so turn up the style and refresh your deck or patio design. Ensure an inviting ambiance with regular care and seasonal décor changes.

Start with a Clean Slate

A clean, inviting space makes time spent on your deck or patio more enjoyable. StruXure adjustable pergolas reduce patio maintenance chores and help protect your furnishings from the elements. However, a bit of seasonal care keeps your outdoor living area looking its best. The start of each season offers the perfect time to do a little maintenance before redecorating:

  • Swap out ailing plants for new, climate-appropriate varieties.
  • Remove dirt and mildew buildup on floors and furnishings.
  • Spray down your patio roof and frame with a hose and wipe down any stubborn spots.
  • Clear pergola louvers and built-in gutters of leaves and debris to ensure optimal performance in heavy rain.
  • Wipe down built-in pergola accessories, clearing cobwebs and dust from pergola lighting, patio heaters, ceiling fans, and motorized screens.

Outfit with Versatile, Comfortable Patio Furnishings

Deck out your outdoor living area with high-quality, weather-resistant furnishings made to last. We recommend patio sofas, chairs, and loungers with cushions and pillows that you can swap out seasonally. Multifunctional tables topped with accessories, alongside tabletop and floor planters filled with weather-appropriate greenery make updating your look from season to season a breeze.

Seasonal Patio Décor Ideas

Updating seasonal décor in indoor and outdoor living spaces simultaneously ensures a cohesive feel and maximum enjoyment of your aluminum roof pergola:

Brighten Things Up with Splashy Spring Tones

Swap winter jewel tones and décor for rugs, seat cushions, pillows, and table linens featuring bright pastel tones or your favorite spring-themed motif. Hang eye-catching floral wreaths on nearby doors or walls. Embrace the return to daylight savings and longer, warmer days, refreshing your space with brightly colored impatiens, petunias, and greenery that will last into summer. Designate space for yard games like bocce and horseshoes in preparation for outdoor entertainment.

Ramp Up the Fun with Bright Summer Hues and Lively Patterns

Trade out spring pastels for beachy blues, cool whites, and bold, cheerful colors with fun patterns like flamingos and flip-flops. Avoid dark tones, which soak in summer heat. Return water-friendly furnishings to their rightful place poolside. Fill planters with tropical foliage or herbs and edibles for your outdoor kitchen or bar. Add a rolling beverage cart ready to stock with cold drinks, snacks, and accouterments to enjoy at your next family event. Close your louvered roof and turn on ceiling fans to keep your furnishings cool and comfortable until you’re ready to soak up some sun.

Add the Rich Colors and Textures of Fall

Trade out summer seating for soft, inviting furnishings that infuse warmth. Incorporate fall-inspired décor, including cozy pillows, throws, and plush outdoor rugs featuring leaves, pumpkins, gourds, and apples in warm orange, soft red, and brown tones. Add functional table accents like solar and battery-powered lanterns and fall-scented candles for ambiance and light as daylight savings ends. Replace summer flowers and edibles with hardy fall mums and low-maintenance ornamental grasses, decorative hay bales, and cornstalks.

Raise the Coziness Factor for Winter

Fire up the built-in infrared patio heaters on your adjustable pergola. Ramp up light and warmth with a gas fire feature, from those that mimic traditional fire pits to modern fire pit tables and push-button tabletop fire features. Swap fall décor for deep, holiday-inspired colors and sparkly metallics, including wreaths and ornaments. Incorporate matching rugs, cushions, pillows, and throws with soft, plush, luxurious textures that retain warmth. Bring holiday lights and décor outdoors, swapping out dried fall foliage for evergreen bushes and displays.
