8x8 Gazebo - 10x10 Gazebo  - 12 x 12 Gazebo  

Steal Our Patio Ideas!

An 8x8 gazebo needs little more than happy plants and a patio to tempt everyone to sit and stay awhile.

This is true of a 10 x 10 gazebo and truer still of a 12 x 12 gazebo

EasyOutdoor
Decor is here to help.

P
atio ideas, covered gazebos, outdoor living furniture, and patio accessories made from weather-worthy materials show up on all these pages with lots of comfort and style in tow.

And if you prefer your gazebos take the form of gazebo building kits, there's help here for that, too. 

So find a fabulous gazebo and steal a few patio ideas while you're here. After experiencing life just right, whatever the gazebo sizes, you won't want to go back indoors.

Here are a few of our favorite 8x8 canopy gazebos to make sure that happens.

Size Matters - even for an 8x8 gazebo!

But whether it's an 8x8, a 10x10 gazebo, or a 12 x 12 Gazebo the trick to getting the size right is simple. 

It just has to be large enough to accommodate your lifestyle without taking over the entire yard.

Here's an easy way to visualize how much gazebo you need.

2 adults, 2 chairs, and 1 small table fit comfortably in a gazebo that's 8 foot square.

For every 2 feet you add to the gazebo size, you can invite 2 more adults to the party (or 4 more children).

So a 10x10 gazebo fits 4 adults. And a 12 x 12 gazebo fits 6.

Now make this phrase your gazebo size mantra, and repeat after me...

"It's better to have more gazebo space and not need it, than to need more gazebo space and not have it."

"It's better to have more space and not need it, than to need more space and not have it."

Got it? Good! Because here's where that mantra comes in handy.

Once you arrive at a gazebo size, bump it up 2 or 4 feet if you have the space.

You can easily cozy up a large outdoor room with fabulous  outdoor living furniture, outdoor lighting fixtures,unique wind chimes, and all-weather rugs.

But a gazebo that's too small will always be too small.

On the other hand, less is more if your yard is compact or the gazebo needs to fit on a deck. 

8x8 gazebo can make every inch count especially with 
gazebo lights and  outdoor living furniture that can perform double duty.

8x8 Gazebo Site Considerations

Easy Outdoor Decor

Site considerations are the single most important gazebo decision you'll make -- aside from the gazebo size.

You want your gazebo to be as inviting as possible. If it’s difficult for you to use, you’ll avoid using it. Where’s the fun in that?

Now that you know the gazebo size, grab some string and stake out the space to get an idea of how well the location you've chosen will work.

Leave the string in place a few days and see if you can live with it.

Take it a step further and put a chair in the spot you've staked out. Then sit down, and look around from the gazebo's point-of-view.

Will you use your gazebo to serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, or midnight snacks?

Think easy access if any of your plans involve carrying items between the gazebo, an outdoor kitchen, a patio or the house.

Let's create a little mystery! Let's add an element of the unexpected! You can position your gazebo so the entire structure can't be seen all at once from the house.

Make it just visible enough to compel your friends and family to explore and discover. You’ll have lots of happy traffic between the house and your gazebo.

Gazebos are all about panoramic views! Think about how you can position your gazebo to take in as much scenery as possible.

This is really easy if you have a large area in your yard that’s also elevated. You’ll have a great view from above.

If your property extends to a large body of water -- you are so lucky! You can build a solid base that extends beyond land's end, overhanging the water. Then secure your gazebo to this base. The visual effect is extremely powerful. And the technique works well for pools, ponds, creeks, and waterfalls.

You can also put your gazebo at the far end of the yard. Done right, it creates the illusion of more space -- the eye perceives that the yard continues beyond.

If siting an 8x8 gazebo or a 12 x 12 gazebo near a small garden pond , the house or pool, make it a part of your existing deck or patio.

How does your garden grow? Accessorize it with your a gazebo and you'll be watching it grow up close and smelling your flowers at the same time.

With your gazebo so near the garden, it can easily do double duty as a potting shed.

And an 8x8 gazebo makes a wonderful shelter for outdoor showers or a kids play area.

Let's Keep it Legal

Easy Outdoor Decor

The objective here is to live the gazebo lifestyle -- not pick a fight with your neighbors or City Hall. 

You may be required to give advanced notice and get approval from your homeowners' association or local zoning authority. -- even if you've chosen an 8x8 gazebo.

So check into it and see what's required.
