Ramadas are the cousin of Gazebos and the big brother of Pergolas. But, they have a personality of their own, providing you with shade, comfort and privacy. Learn about these transformational spaces in our top three Ramada design ideas:
1. Make Your Backyard More Comfortable
Whether you live in the harsh deserts of Arizona or near the beaches of Florida, a Ramada can provide permanent shade during those hot summer months. Install it over top your outdoor kitchen, dining or seating area for an instant gathering spot.
It’s all about location, location, location when deciding to install your Ramada! Our customer, Graham, strategically placed his Treated Pine Ramada near the calm waterway and built a bridge leading from the Ramada, connecting the other side of his yard.
Also, think about the material you want to use for your Ramada and determine if that syncs with your theme. The treated pine Ramada pictured above pairs well with the natural habitat setting. But, a bright white vinyl Ramada wouldn’t fit so well here.
2. Create a Courtyard
By adding a Ramada, you are creating a courtyard — a focal point for your backyard. Take our customer, Marlene, for instance whose Vinyl Ramada becomes the center of attention outside her East Hampton, NY home. The Ramada provides a destination for seating and relaxation amongst the beautiful landscaping, waterfall and pool. This is a breathtaking scene and with a Ramada, you can take it all in at your leisure!
3. Add a Ramada to a Deck or Patio, too
Ramadas can be installed over decks or patios, giving you and your company privacy. Yet, the design has less hardware than a Gazebo, giving you more space to freely move around as well. This Ramada below comfortably sits six.
And, if you have a pool and don’t have a Ramada, why don’t you have one yet?? Pools and Ramadas go together like peanut butter and jelly! It’s a great place to hang out with your swimsuit still on without having to go inside!
Fifthroom.com’s Ramadas are available in Treated Pine, Vinyl, Red and Rough Cut Cedar. We also have Gable Ramadas, which provide even more space so you can entertain more family and friends! Allow your outdoor living space to flourish with a new Ramada!
