Outdoor furniture and accessories became a booming industry in 2020—fast-forward a couple of years, and the trend for outdoor living and dining is here to stay. But what if you’re looking for something more permanent than parasols? Let us introduce you to Instashade’s brand new range of pergolas… Pergolas – ExplainedStripping it back to basics, a pergola is an outdoor structure made up of columns that support a flat retractable roof, which can be entirely freestanding or attached to an existing building , serving as an extension of a hospitality venue or home.Instashade’s pergolas create a contemporary living space that’s functional all year round, whatever the weather, and will leave your customers or guests seriously impressed. A pergola is the perfect way to open up your home into the garden (and are much more cost-friendly than a conservatory or extension), but they’re also an innovative way to expand your pub, bar or restaurant, maximising your covers, your turnover, and your profit. There are three Instashade pergolas to choose from… 1. Elegancy Retractable Roof PergolaOur Elegancy Pergola is the simple and elegant way to fully protect or extend your outside space. Owing to the modern technical solutions and terrace roofing system included within the structure, the roof is fully retractable, giving you protection from bad weather in the winter and allowing you to bask in the sunshine in the summer. It can be supplied three-sided (instead of four), attaching to a building or wall, and fully electric screen walls give you an extra level of shelter. You could also opt for sliding shutters, which are modern and stylish yet functional, or complete protection with a full glazing system.
