Wooden pavilions

The focal point that your garden needs

A wooden pavilion is a timber structure that can be used in a variety of ways, depending on how it is decorated. Regardless of the style and intended use, wooden pavilions are the perfect focal points for outdoor spaces. In garden design, a focal point sets the order for the overall appearance of the landscape. There are various types of landscape focal points, including timber garden buildings, flowerbeds, outdoor furniture, fountains and even pathways. Despite the fact that a focal point can be almost anything, people often choose timber structures, especially wooden pavilions, because of the combination of functionality and appearance that such a structure adds to the outdoor space. Wooden pavilions are popular among the owners of both small and spacious gardens because of their beautiful designs, which range from modern to classic and can really create that ‘wow’ factor.

A focal point in all seasons

When choosing a focal point for your garden, especially if it’s a wooden pavilion, carefully consider the quality and versatility of the model you choose. A focal point has to be something that doesn’t lose its appeal when the seasons change and doesn’t start to look worn over time. Remember it’s a focal point, so you won’t be able to hide it that easily! How can a wooden pavilion be used all year around? Simply opt for a partially enclosed structure or build a garden fireplace next to it and you’ll have a beautiful yet functional addition to your garden!

Wood pavilion- shapes and sizes

After that, you can start choosing the shape and size that corresponds to your garden landscape. Remember that wooden pavilions come in various shapes – octagonal, rectangular, square etc.

To make the most of your outdoor space and a wooden pavilion, it’s crucial to consider not only the appearance but also the layout of the timber structure. For the purposes of functionality, the structure should be the right size and shape for your garden, while also providing enough floor space for an outdoor living area.

Keep in mind that the definition of a wooden pavilion can vary from one manufacturer to another – from small and spacious freestanding structures, with both fully and partially enclosed walls, to lean-to pavilions of various shapes and sizes. In terms of pavilion plans, the main thing is to decide if you want to opt for a free-standing pavilion or a lean-to timber structure. To establish this, it’s crucial to know whether your house is suitable for a lean-to extension in the first place. Once this has been decided, you can start choosing the shape and size building that corresponds to your garden landscape. Remember that wooden pavilions come in various shapes – octagonal, rectangular, square and so on.

However, if you can’t seem to find the right shape and size, you can always opt for a bespoke design. After all, if your garden requires an L-shaped garden building, you’ll have to find one! Also, if you have particular thoughts about a specific style/type of garden building, a bespoke option is a great way of bringing your ideas to life. In terms of choosing the size of your pavilion, you need to find the right balance between the available garden space and the purpose your timber structure will serve. If you’re looking for a model that fits just two people, you could opt for one of the smallest ones, which measure 200 cm to 300 cm. However, if you’re looking for something a bit more spacious, look for pavilions measuring at least 400 cm to 500 cm. And, of course, the most fun part is choosing the right design. Start by deciding whether you would prefer a classic or a modern design, and then decide on the type of roof you’d prefer. Once you’ve decided, simply combine all of your preferences and choose the model that fits them best!

Wooden pavilion ideas for the transformation of an outdoor space

A new focal point is the first step towards the transformation of your outdoor space. However, a wooden pavilion can add a lot more than just a new ‘must-have’ design element to your garden. Regardless of whether you’re just freshening up your garden a bit or carrying out a full redesign, the main purpose of adding a focal point is to change the look and feel of the space as well as its functionality. This is something that should be kept in mind when carrying out a DIY project.

One of the most popular trends in garden design lately, especially for small to medium outdoor spaces, is multi-functionality, and this is something that can certainly be achieved with a wooden pavilion. With a building that is the right shape and size for your garden, you can combine a relaxation area with an outdoor dining table and a BBQ or a pizza oven. Another great idea to consider for your garden makeover is extending the outdoor living space by adding a gazebo to the house. A freestanding gazebo next to the house will provide extra living space, while also creating an invisible connection between the house and the garden, which will add that finishing touch to both of them.

And, finally, the main garden design trend of the year is a secret hideaway in a wooden pavilion. A retreat space that’s hidden away from the eyes of your neighbours can be achieved in various ways. The easiest, of course, is to set the pavilion up in a corner of your garden. However, if you’d like to combine this effect with your pavilion being the focal point, there are many other ways of achieving privacy. For example, you could use hanging baskets, lush planting or decorative wall panels.

Are you interested in freshening up your outdoor space? A little effort goes a long way – a wooden pavilion can change not only the overall look of your garden but also how you use the space in general!
