Hawaii being a tropical island, still experiences many different climates throughout the year but the temperatures are mostly uniform. Thanks to this, we have the opportunity to spend an envious amount of time outside. By expanding our living space to the garden we need to protect ourselves and our patio furniture sets from the elements. One of the easily best solutions for this is a bioclimatic pergola.

An amazing novelty for our homes is the bioclimatic pergola, which is the innovation of the 21st century. Bioclimatic pergolas give us a chance to enjoy the outdoors even when the weather acts up and makes us scoop up inside the four walls of our home.

Why use pergolas over your patio furniture sets?

When you set up a living or workspace in your backyard, you need adequate shading for it in order to use it as long and as frequently as possible. Set up by the house or on the other side of the yard, a pergola will differentiate the space from the rest. Enjoy the outdoors and the surrounding nature in your comfortable rattan outdoor furniture and breath the freedom in.

Any pergola will fill the environment with elegance and aesthetically contribute to the overall feel of the outdoor space. Move your living room, dining room, or even office to the outdoors under proper shading and welcome your guests with a unique outdoor living arrangement.

What is a bioclimatic pergola?

There are many types of pergolas made of different materials. The most recent is the bioclimatic pergola, which is made entirely of aluminum. This material is light but very resistant, so it ensures that the pergola lasts a long time, even if the elements are continuously changing.

The roofing system is made up of blades that rotate between 120 and 170 degrees. These blades are, of course,  motorized, thus can be adjusted according to the sun. The roofing can also create a watertight seal, so you don’t have to rush inside when and if it starts raining.

By rotating the roofing blades, you can control the amount of sunlight that passes through while leaving the ventilation to avoid excessive heat in the area. ​​Some of the pergolas also have rain sensors. This way, it’s able to control the blades independently, covering the area if necessary. This is really helpful as it prevents the furniture from being damaged when you are not at home and it starts to rain. In the simplest models, the blades are moved by a switch or a crank.

These types of pergolas might look modern and hi-tech but they also allow for a variety of patterns and colors for the aluminum for a rustic enclosure. This way, these modern pergolas can be used in any home.

Various accessories can be added to the pergolas: sliding doors, curtains, windows, shutters, or blinds to protect the user when the sun goes down. In addition, lights can be installed in them, so the space can be used at night, making even better use of the exterior of the home. Some even have a music system and retractable slats built into them, allowing them to be fully opened in good weather.
