There is a myriad of choices when it comes to selecting the right type of design for a pergola. Pergolas with straight lines, with the style of a craftsman are classic. The personal preference is influential in the choice, but the style of home and garden should be also taken into consideration. A traditional pergola suits well for colonial English homes, whereas a design with Asian inspiration is suitable for Japanese inspired gardens. Those how have a home with Tuscan style should think about a pergola with a touch of Mediterranean for great beauty. Whatever be the design, a pergola has its own characteristic beauty.
