Guide to Buying a 10x10 Gazebo
Choosing a gazebo that meets your needs or requirements can seem a little confusing when you see just how many options there are out there. It therefore makes more sense to stop, take a moment and consider what factors are important. Here is a guide that we hope will help you make an informed choice ensuring you get the right gazebo for you.
What do you want from your Gazebo?
First things first, what do you want your gazebo for? This is a crucial question that every prospective canopy owner must ask themselves. The prospects and possibilities are literally limitless; it helps if you know what you’re going for. Some of the most common reasons people get gazebos include: Probably the most critical question to ask yourself is; Why do I want a gazebo?
The possibilities are endless so it’s useful to know what your gazebo will be used for. More common uses include; somewhere to hold a party or family get together, a place to chill out and relax in, a play area for the kids or as an exercise room in the summer months. Its uses are as limitless as your imagination.
Things to consider:
Now you have decided on what sort of thing you will be using your gazebo for the next step is to look at the features it will need.
This feature covers both the frame and canopy. Your decision on the materials of your gazebo will certainly be reflected in price, portability, durability and strength. Where canopies are concerned, in general they tend to be made of a polyester blend material, however, where frames are concerned the materials used are varied.
Aluminium and metal framed gazebos will offer high levels of portability and durability, that is why they are so commonly used both in the commercial and domestic setting. There is the option for vinyl framed gazebo which offer a budget option, however they are not as durable. A wood framed gazebo tends to be a more permanent structure offering the option to blend in with your natural surroundings however they are not as durable or transportable.
Size and Shape
Gazebos come in a wide range of sizes, a factor that will be determined by the area you have available to put it. Obviously, space is not an issue then the ‘worlds your oyster!’ however if space is of a premium this will need to be a serious consideration. As to shape, this too will be determined by what room you have available and also the look you are going for. After all, if you have a small garden and want to continue to enjoy it you won’t want a great big gazebo taking over it, unless your aim is to just have a pop-up that will only be used for the odd occasional get together where the garden isn’t wanted or required.
Now of course the purpose of gazebos is to offer shelter, whether from the rain or sun so why mention it here? Because the roof is a fundamental components of a gazebo and they come in a range of materials and designs. The list of potential roof features and their combinations are many, from showerproof to total waterproof protection, added ventilation, protection from UV rays and even the ability to be opened and closed.
Assembly and Portability
How easy a gazebo is to assemble and whether you intend to transport it often are two factors that are important when making your choice. For instance, if you will be taking it on a camping trip then you will need a gazebo that is quick and easy to erect, light enough to carry and will neatly fold away. On the other hand, if your intention is to use it as a more permanent fixture in the garden then a heavy-duty, durable and stable gazebo is going to be a better option.
Last but by no mean least is price. As with any purchase, the amount you spend should be equal to what you are expecting of your chosen gazebo. If your intention is to use it regularly for a range of purposes you will need one that can withstand extensive use, meaning it is worth spending that bit more. On the other hand, if it’s for that odd get together or camping trip, during the warm summer months, then a budget gazebo will do the job just fine.
