1.What is a backyard cabana?
When you hear the word "cabana," the first thing most people think of is a cozy lounge near a beach, lake, or poolside at a tropical getaway. In short, they make you want to go on vacation and enjoy the sun. Building a gazebo or pergola in your own backyard to enjoy a vacation-like time, and building it in your own backyard, also brings the advantage that you can use it every day, as long as you want, because it sits within your own outdoor space.🥂
A pergola or gazebo in your backyard may be a slightly different style than the cabins you find at resorts, but it's like bringing a little piece of vacation home in your backyard. They are usually semi-enclosed structures, and we offer several different styles so you can find the backyard design that best suits your needs and space.💕
Perhaps you want to place a pergola or gazebo near your swimming pool to create a covered space that will serve as an outdoor lounge, sure to be a place to wow your guests while you entertain; a comfortable lounge, which brings you closer to nature. In fact, a backyard room is essentially an extension of your home outdoors.👍
2.How do you use a cabana?
You can be very flexible in how you use the shed, and it really depends on your personal preference. The most common use of a backyard shed is as a place to relax, to keep you out of the sun while at the same time leaving you able to enjoy the outdoor breeze.
They're also great places to entertain family and friends for a BBQ on a nice summer evening, or as a family getaway by the pool.👍

Types of gazebos
Soft-top gazebos are made from flexible materials such as fabric, mesh, and plastic. Since they’re lightweight, they’re easy to assemble and disassemble. That makes them a great choice if you only plan to use your gazebo during certain months, want to move it around, or switch homes regularly.💧
- Cheaper than hardtop gazebos
- Portable and easy to take down
- Great for renters or short-term residents
- Poor resistance against wind, rain, and snow
- Offers shade, but doesn’t block or retain heat
- Not as durable as hardtop
As a type of permanent outdoor gazebo, hardtop models are made from sturdy materials like wood or metal. They offer fantastic protection against the elements and are resistant to wear, making them suitable for year-round use. You can also add a fire pit or grill without worrying about heat or smoke damage.🎉
- Incredibly durable,even in harsh weather
- Stays cool in summer and protects you from the elements in the winter
- Timeless designs that complement your home
- More expensive than soft-top gazebo options
- More permanent in nature, so harder to disassemble and move around
TYPICAL GAZEBO MATERIALS
The biggest benefit of wood gazebos is their stunning, elegant appearance. They’re strong enough to withstand intense weather, and are finished to be rust-, water- and insect-proof. While natural materials require more upkeep and must be stained and sealed regularly,they can still look amazing after a decade of heavy use.🌿
Popular woods for wooden gazebos include:
Cedar:Its pinkish-red hue makes cedar a beautiful material for wood gazebos. It’s soft and light, but incredibly durable, and its natural resins make it resistant to rot, decay, and insects even with zero maintenance. Cedar also doesn’t absorb moisture easily, making it an excellent choice in humid or wet climates. While slightly more expensive than other options, a little extra spending gets you a gazebo that looks amazing for many years to come.
Teak:This tropical hardwood is strong, long lasting, and highly resistant to bugs, decay, and weather. Add to that its deep, warm dark-brown tones, and you can expect a truly captivating gazebo. That said, teak is rather expensive and needs to be oiled every three months or so, which means a lot of time spent on maintenance.
- Pressure-treated pine:The fact that pine is one of the cheapest materials around makes it a common choice for wood gazebos. But that comes at the cost of lower resistance to rot and decay, and the need for chemical treatment and regular maintenance to ward off pests. Nonetheless, the attractive pale-yellow coloration of pressure-treated pine makes it a good fit for almost any backyard.🌿
In general, metal gazebos are extremely durable and stable while requiring very little maintenance. They also don’t fade in the sun and don’t rot when exposed to moisture.
There are three main types of metal gazebos:
Galvanized steel:Despite their incredible strength, galvanized-steel gazebos are still very affordable. They’re designed to be rustproof and offer much greater durability than aluminum and wrought iron.
Aluminum:Lightweight and inexpensive, aluminum offers a balance between sturdiness and affordability. Aluminum gazebos are often powder coated in a wide variety of colors, which makes them resistant to chipping, fading, and wearing. What you gain in cost savings, you pay in shorter longevity and lower durability.💕
Wrought iron:These are the heaviest and sturdiest types of metal gazebos. While wrought iron isn’t naturally rustproof, most gazebo retailers supply them fully painted. However, you will need to touch up the paint if it’s chipped or scratched.💐
Cabanas can be made from pretty much any building material, such as aluminum, treated wood, steel - basically, any material that ensures your cabana is durable and long-lasting. We think the best backyard cabanas that still look great over time are made from high-quality wood and powder coated steel. You can enjoy them season after season, and they are a beautiful, fitting addition to your backyard space.
