Once you've decided to build a pergola, your budget limits are set, and the permits are in place, there are a lot of decisions to make. Things that need to be considered when building a gallery pergola are the position, choice of materials, design, and layout, as well as the choice of the roof.

Some things to keep in mind when considering the location of your pergola on your property are:
Purpose – What do you want to use it for, barbecue, party, pool party, or for privacy protection?
Logistics – where is the best and most logical place to build your pergola? Should there be access to the interior?
Ambiance – do you have a favorite tree or a favorite spot in the garden that is perfect lighting or aspect?
This other solution, limited by your budget, doesn't let the choice of the material dictate your style. With advances in technology and developments in manufacturing, there is a wide choice of materials to suit all types of budgets.
The type of design you choose for your pergola should complement the style of your home. An ancient pergola with wooden frames gives your bungalow or villa a rustic and antique look, and a sleek modern sun terrace complements your new villa or home.
When allowed to choose the layout of your pergola or veranda, the most important thing to pay attention to is the purpose of the outside door area. Then, consider whether you have enough room for bicycle and ball games.
While choosing a roof isn't a big deal, there are many types to choose from. There is flat, gable, curved and sloping roof types. Maybe you prefer shadow fabric or nothing.
