How not to make a mistake in choosing a gazebo and choose a design that will delight its owners for more than a decade? For this purpose, before the final selection of the arbor, the specialists of the exhibition “Low-Rise Country” recommend answering a single, but most important question: what functions should the arbor perform or what will it be used for?
If the gazebo is intended for eating , then it should contain a table and the required number of chairs according to the number of hosts or guests. You also need to understand that walking with plates to the other end of the plot in the gazebo would be uncomfortable. Therefore, it is desirable to have such a gazebo near the entrance to the house or close to the windows in the kitchen so that food and dishes can be served through the kitchen window.
For even greater comfort, it is advisable to provide mosquito nets for mosquitoes and flies, lighting and infrared heaters in such gazebos that heat people, not air. All this will maximize the feast.
If the gazebo is to be used in the evening when the lighting is turned on, it is recommended to choose a construction that includes the installation of mosquito nets
Arbor can be used not only for eating, but also for preparing it . In this case, you should think about the construction of a gazebo with barbecue or house grill. The place for such an arbor should be chosen very carefully. First, according to the fire safety rules, it can be positioned no closer than five meters from the house. Secondly, the smoke from the fire should not fall on the house. Otherwise, the house will be smoked, black stains will appear on the facade. It is desirable to bring water to such an arbor. This will create additional convenience when cooking kebabs and other dishes. Before ordering the arbor itself, you should choose the grill itself with or without an oven in order to calculate in advance the area of the future arbor.

When choosing the construction of an arbor it is worth assessing which plants are planned to be planted around. If it is ivy or grapes, the posts and the roof should be strong enough to withstand the weight of these plants, which over time will embrace the entire arbor.
It should be considered what will be made of the floor of the arbor . It can be a terrace board or paving slabs ("ARCADA"). If the house has small children and / or elderly parents, then it is worth making the floor of the gazebo flush with the ground so as not to create additional obstacles for them.
