What to consider for your ideal outdoor pavilion design


The first thing to consider is the location for your new structure. If you have a large property, you probably have several options for where you’ll put your pavilion. However, the right pavilion can add beauty and atmosphere even to a small yard without things getting crowded. The key is in situating it properly within your landscape.

Our skilled contractors will work with you to help you choose the best location for your property, whether your outdoor pavilion design is made for your patio, poolside, deck, or yard.


The size of your pavilion makes all the difference in its appearance and how you will enjoy it. To look best, the size of your structure should be proportioned to the size of your yard. The design will also have to consider the specifications of your town’s building codes. 

Perhaps most importantly, how you plan to use your pavilion will impact its size the most. A pavilion is more than a covered area to relax, gather or play. It can also hold an outdoor kitchen or cooking space, an outdoor bar, a fire pit or fireplace, seating of various kinds, and access to a bathroom or storage area.


The material selected for your outdoor pavilion design is critical to its appearance and harmony with your home’s exterior. The material you select will also impact the longevity of your structure and what kind of care will be required to keep it in excellent condition for years to come. 

Whether your outdoor pavilion is spacious or intimate, ornate or rustic, traditional or modern, the material you select will have a large impact on the atmosphere and appearance of your structure, as well as on what kind of upkeep it will require.
