Creating a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing space under your aluminium pergola requires careful consideration of the ideas you choose. Except for furniture, the selection of walls becomes one of the most decisive factors. The walls play a crucial role in defining the ambience, providing privacy, and offering protection from the elements. In this article, we will explore four wall ideas for an aluminium pergola, each with its unique benefits and characteristics.
1.Pull Down Screen

Aesthetics: The screen adds a touch of elegance and style to your pergola. They come in various colours, patterns, and textures, allowing you to customize the look to match your outdoor decor.

Besides, the size of pull down screen has been designed to fit with the standard width and height of the pergola. All you need to do is just fasten screws on the pre-reserved holes.
You need to consider which side of the pergola you’ll add the pull down screen in advance, then choose the right size of pull down screen.
Privacy panel, also known as trellis or grille, is a popular choice for those seeking to certain baffle under their pergola. These panels are typically made from aluminium material that can block part of direct sunlight while allowing air to circulate freely.

Like many people may add a trellis onto their fencing, design panels are a classic and charming way to enclose an aluminium pergola while maintaining an open and inviting atmosphere. These panels consist of crisscrossed strips, and exquisite figures, creating a visually appealing pattern of diamond-shaped openings.
