Pergola Designs

One of the key components of the Australian lifestyle is outdoor living and entertainment. From leisurely meals to celebratory events, all can be enjoyed on a regular basis under the shelter of a pergola.


We all know Sydney is a great city to live in; but the weather is a little unpredictable. The right pergola that provides shelter from inclement weather, as well as protection from the harsh summer sun, ensures your deck is in full-use all year round. At Thomsons, our experienced staff can assist with determining the appropriate design and materials for your structure’s intended use, such as whether the pergola has an open roof or covered, is flat or pitched, and the pergola’s height and timber choices. Pergolas are the ultimate compliment to any deck and can also be designed as an architectural feature, carport or a freestanding pergola, which makes for beautiful garden retreats. Investing in a pitched roof pergola is a wise investment as it can add both aesthetics and value to your property.

When planning the installation of a pergola, you must first identify how the pergola is to be used, as this can, at times, affect the design. For example, a covered pergola can be installed with lighting, heating, ceiling fans and furnishings, all safeguarded from the elements. However, ceiling lights and ceiling fans often require a covered pitched section as part of the design. Pergolas can also be devised to allow adequate natural light into any existing adjacent rooms. Whatever concerns you may have now, or to work out which style will suit your needs, don’t worry because we have an expert consultancy service. We will come to you and take all your specifications and preferences into account, so you will have the perfect pergola in your Sydney home.
