Pavilions

Pavilions are a great option for people who pay a lot of attention not only to the functionality of their garden but to its appearance as well. That’s especially important for those who have chosen a certain aesthetic that their garden must adhere to – for example, some people have created a classic Victorian-style garden while others have chosen a modern, minimal design, meaning that every new addition must fit in with the overall aesthetic of the garden.

The large variety of pavilion designs and the available bespoke design options makes them very useful to such garden owners, as there is a pavilion for almost any style of garden. In addition to that, pavilions have a subtler appearance compared to other garden buildings, allowing them to seamlessly fit into the landscape of a garden, instead of overtaking it. If you’re interested in adding a pavilion to your garden or backyard, keep on reading this article to find out more about their designs, functionality and advantages.

Pavilion designs – classic vs modern

As mentioned, there are many different design options that pavilions can provide – in terms of both functionality and appearance. The classic perception of a pavilion is that of a small garden building that’s only big enough to fit just a few people at the same time, however, with the appropriate construction system, they can actually be a lot more than that. While it is true that most of the pavilions offered by manufacturers are made in this size, the biggest available pavilions are as big as the biggest models of any other garden building type, providing the same amount of space that a summerhouse or a log cabin would, while keeping the signature appearance of a pavilion. It’s especially important if you have designed your garden in a manner that calls for a classic pavilion design, but you also need a large amount of usable space from your garden building.

Meanwhile, if the classic pavilion design is the opposite of what you’re looking for in a garden building, remember that modern pavilions offer a lot more variation in terms of design as well. The available options offered by Lugarde include not only the nostalgic look found in many classic gardens but also modern pavilion designs with narrow windows and double doors. If you’re looking for something even more modern than what the regular pavilion designs can offer, you can also choose a gazebo with glass sliding walls, which will certainly provide the look you’re after.

Pavilion windows

If you go with the most popular option and choose a small pavilion with the classic design, you’ll have to decide if you’d like a pavilion that includes windows and a door or one without them. Of course, each one of those options has its advantages and shortcomings – a pavilion without windows will create an outdoor feeling, allowing you to enjoy the nice summer weather, while also protecting you from the rain, but it won’t have much use when it’s cold and/or windy outside. Meanwhile, adding windows to the pavilion might take away the relaxed outdoor atmosphere and spoil the view of your garden a little bit, but you’ll be able to use it when the weather gets bad (maybe even throughout the whole year, if you insulate it properly) and it will also allow you to lock it, so you can store your belongings inside of it without a worry.

Bespoke pavilions – create your own pavilion design

Remember that, if none of the existing models are exactly what you’re looking for, Lugarde also offers a 3D-configurator, which will allow you to remodel them according to your preferences. The 3D-configurator makes it easy to modify the designs and create your dream pavilion – add extra features like additional doors and windows or remove the existing ones with just a few clicks! In addition to that, you can also create a bespoke design from scratch, to make sure that the pavilion will perfectly blend into your garden. And the best part is that Lugarde offers this option without any additional cost, which makes bespoke designs available for everyone!

Advantages of pavilions and ways to use them

As you might have already guessed, pavilions are quite a popular choice for small gardens. And it’s easy to understand why – they are compact, can be fitted into different areas of the garden and blend well into their surroundings. In addition to that, they also usually don’t require a planning permission (unless you choose a particularly large model), which is important if you want to make the installation process of your garden building as quick and easy as possible. In addition to that, a small, but beautiful high-quality pavilion will be much more pleasant to the eye than the usual drab garden shed.

Pavilions can also be used in more ways than just for storage, which is the primary purpose of garden sheds. Of course, if a pavilion has lockable doors, it can also be a convenient place where to store things, but, due to the amount of natural lighting they provide, it makes more sense to use them as an extra living space. That’s why owners of small pavilions usually designate them as a lounge area or a small dining room, as they seem to be perfectly suited for this purpose. Unfortunately, the limited size of the most popular pavilion designs doesn’t allow to host larger gatherings, but, as we already mentioned earlier, it’s possible to find larger pavilion designs as well, and those will provide many more possibilities for their owners. From a home office, to a hobby room, to a playroom for kids or a large dining room and so on – in fact, you can even find garden pavilions that reach up to 7 meters in diameter, allowing you to set up a guesthouse for your friends and family or even a small bed and breakfast in your garden. Therefore, it’s safe to say that a pavilion equipped with extra options can offer the same usage possibilities as any other garden building, which is great news for those who prefer their look to any other type of garden building.

If you also prefer the look of pavilions to other garden buildings, but you were worried that they have limited functionality, hopefully, this article has encouraged you to choose a pavilion for your garden. If you feel ready to choose your dream pavilion, take a look at the range of pavilions offered by Lugarde.
