Of course, gazebos easily double as a backyard dining room, but they’re also perfect gathering spaces for family board game night or just sitting and chatting with friends while enjoying the fresh air on a perfect summer evening. Benches can be incorporated into your gazebo’s structure to create a type of nook. Your gazebo will also add usable living space to your property, which effectively adds square footage to your home. The more you upgrade your gazebo with  lighting, and furniture, the more it becomes a true outdoor space. The more things you add the more likely you will find your family getting together out there to spend time together. Gazebos are also great as poolside retreats! Use the area to cool off during the peak of the summer.
