When selecting an outdoor gazebo, you’ll want to choose the right design, pick something that stays within your budget, and keep the ultimate purpose of the structure in mind. Whether you want a budget-friendly pop-up gazebo or you’re looking for a more permanent structure that adds sophistication to your grounds, there’s something for everyone. To help you out, we’ve put together a few of the great outdoor gazebos we love.
All the important features
One of my favorite things to do is eat outside with friends. However, I live in Florida with lots of sun, rain and mosquitoes so this permanent gazebo is the perfect solution. It’s glamorous yet built to last and features a hard metal top that holds up to the elements. The two-layer roof design offers superior ventilation for your gazebo, and it comes with a quality water gutter design to ensure that water doesn’t come inside. The polyester, PBV-coating mosquito netting keeps out bugs, and you have an additional polyester solid sidewall you can pull around the gazebo for additional privacy.
Keep your cool
I’ll admit the colorful tops first caught my eye, but on closer examination I appreciate how this “pop-up tent” looks nearly identical to permanent installations. Setting it up is easy: Extend the steel frame, place the skylights on top, attach the canopy and press the push-button control system lock it all in place. It takes just minutes. It’s also built to last. The top is made from oxford fabric with UPF 50+ UV sun protection. The frame is made of high-grade engineered steel and is powder-coated for rust-resistance.
If a permanent gazebo isn’t for you, this gazebo tent by Gazelle lets you enjoy having your own sheltered outdoor area in a jiffy. With a unique hub design system, you can set it up in just 60 seconds, which means you’ll spend more time enjoying the tent than setting it up. Win-win! The roof is made from UV-resistant and waterproof material to keep you protected, and the walls are designed with a tight-weave mesh to keep out the bugs. The system packs up into a portable carry bag and at just 34 pounds, you can take it with you. Tailgating and beach – here we come!
What’s not to like here? The number from Suntime covers all the bases by fighting off weather, UV rays and mosquitos. It also features four LED lights that are solar powered. And setup is quick and easy thanks to push-up technology.
Built to last
This soft-top gazebo is easy to setup – all the tools are even included. It offers a classic design but offers optimal protection from the sun’s rays and those pesky flying insects. It’s weather resistant and designed to provide years of outdoor entertaining without heavy wear. Canvas wall panels can be attached and zipped closed for privacy or shade. The tools for assembly are included.
