Redefine Your Space and Extend Your Indoor Living Area with Smart Pergolas

April 15, 2023

In recent years, people have been seeking comfortable outdoor spaces they can use all year round. But architects, builders, and designers have realized that outdoor spaces provide more than a relaxing and peaceful environment. For hotels, restaurants, and other businesses, having an inviting and well-designed outdoor space can increase customer satisfaction, attract more customers, and boost revenue.

Architects and designers have been integrating smart pergola systems, louvered roof systems, and other structural sun protection systems to create a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor spaces and provide an extension of indoor areas.

Smart Pergola Systems

Smart pergolas have become increasingly popular thanks to their versatility and functionality. Unlike traditional pergolas, these structures feature sensors and smart controls that adjust the angle and position of the louvers automatically, ensuring maximum comfort for the user regardless of weather conditions and time of day. And the design of smart pergolas can be tailored to suit individual preferences, providing a great way to add style and aesthetic appeal to outdoor spaces.

Louvered Roof Systems

Louvered roofs are an innovative outdoor shading solution that has gained popularity among homeowners and businesses. Consisting of a series of horizontal louvers that can be adjusted to control the amount of sunlight and airflow entering a space, these systems create a comfortable outdoor environment. Plus, louvered roofs can be integrated with lighting and heating systems, extending the area’s usability into the evening hours and during cooler months.

Other Structural Sun Protection Systems

Other structural sun protection systems also offer unique benefits for outdoor spaces. Retractable sails, for example, are designed to provide shade while adding an aesthetic touch to the space. Because they can be adjusted at different angles, retractable sails offer varying levels of shade and protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Plus, they’re available in a wide range of colors and designs, making it easy to find one that complements the overall design of the outdoor space.

As architects and designers continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible with outdoor design, it’s clear that the possibilities for creating comfortable and stylish outdoor spaces are limitless. Contact us today to schedule a Lunch & Learn and let ShadeFLA show you how sun protection systems can redefine how we experience outdoor spaces.
