Welcome to our gallery featuring a variety of patio gazebo designs!

Gazebos are one of the best ways to cover an area that needs extra shade or protection from the rain. They can be stylish as well as functional and can really enhance a space.

There are many places that you can put a gazebo. They can be set up out in a garden, in the yard, along a path or by a pond. However, one of the most useful places to put a gazebo is on the patio.

With a gazebo on your patio, you can construct a great space for meals and other gatherings close to the home. They also make great coverings for an outside living room.

You can chill out under your gazebo and have a great meal or look out over your property from your patio.

Some gazebos that can be staged on your patio are easy to pop up and take back down, but there are others that are constructed from more permanent materials. Both have advantages and disadvantages.

The best thing about having a gazebo on your patio is that your comfortable outdoor getaway is never too far from your home. You can simply step outside where you will be as comfortable as if you were still inside, and continue to enjoy the weather.

Your gazebo can be large enough to house a long table and chairs, or maybe just enough to hold a nice set of patio furniture. It can also sit poolside and cover a couple of lounge chairs so you can sit back and relax.

For only a few hundred dollars you can have a simple pop-up gazebo that you can place on your patio and sit under in wonderful shade. For a more permanent gazebo installed into your patio area, you can expect to spend between $1,000 and $3,000. Under this price range, you will have a nice permanent structure that will last you for some time. If you decide that you want something even more involved you can go all out. If you choose to opt for a patio gazebo that has all the bells and whistles it may cost you upwards of $10,000.
