Outdoor Living Room

People choose pavilions over pergolas often because the full roof provides additional protection against the elements. Most take advantage of this roof structure to create an outdoor living room, complete with a TV, couches, chairs, and other furniture. Some even add a built-in fireplace to create a place to relax and rest in your backyard.

Poolside Shade

Give family members and friends who prefer not to swim a great place to enjoy the action and get out of the sun. Or provide a refuge for swimmers during a sudden rainstorm. Your new pavilion is the perfect option for poolside shade.

Additional Backyard Shade

If you have a backyard patio, porch, or deck, a pavilion is an easy way to add additional shade. By adding a pavilion to your backyard sitting area, you can enjoy your backyard more - especially during the hot summer months or high mid-day sun. Many homeowners choose to add an EZShade curtain for additional shade and privacy for their pavilion.

Picnic Area

Pavilions are the go-to choice for parks, schools, and communities looking to add a picnic area to their property. Whether you run a campground, public park, or a sports complex, adding a pavilion will help your guests stay longer and enjoy your facility more. Our Grand Estate pavilions work well for public pavilions, as they provide free spans up to 24' without center posts.
