It’s safe to say that the pandemic has changed the way we live. These days, we’re spending more time at home than we could have ever imagined. However, this has enabled us to concentrate on ways in which to improve our homes and gardens.

Last year, garden upgrades topped the list for the most popular lockdown renovation projects. Already, this year, this trend looks set to continue. In fact, homeowners are now investing in outdoor living spaces to create another useful area beyond our four walls. This will not only enhance our lives but should increase the value of our homes. But, how do you create outdoor living spaces which are just as stylish as the rest of your home?

There are plenty of solutions for the luxury London property; these range from classic-style summer houses to modern pergolas with retractable roofs. And these garden rooms can provide the perfect place to introduce biophilic design principles. In this instance, we asked our creative director, Cinzia at Moretti Interior Design, how to transform outdoor living spaces with a bespoke pergola:

Build a bespoke pergola

A permanent structure in your outdoor living space can create the perfect luxury retreat throughout the seasons. In fact, this is fast becoming a top priority for homeowners. And the options are endless whether you’re looking for a ventilated, stylish entertaining space or perhaps a home office.

The luxury glazed pergola with retractable roof is already proving a popular option for a spring garden revamp and I think it’s easy to see why. These designs are incredibly versatile as they suit a multitude of uses. Choose an aluminium frame and you’ll discover this structure will be exceptionally sturdy and long-lasting, come rain or shine. Then complete the look with extensive glazing on all four ‘walls’ with sliding doors. This way, you can allow the outside in as much as you require. And you’ll still feel at one with nature, even if the retractable roof and sliding doors are closed.
