What Size Pop-up Gazebo is Right for Me?

Choosing the right size pop-up gazebo can be a challenge, but with Oxnorth's guide, you can ensure you select a gazebo that is just right. Learn how to assess your gazebo needs, measure equipment, and determine the perfect size for a comfortable, practical outdoor setup.

To avoid any problems with your new pop up gazebo, follow the below guidelines to ensure you choose the perfect size.

  • Assess the purpose of the gazebo (shelter, cooking, dining, etc.)
  • Measure equipment and items to be housed in the gazebo, such as tables and chairs
  • Make sure everything fits comfortably
  • Mark out equipment placement in a set-up gazebo to determine if more space is needed.

You need to measure the size of the equipment and items you intend to house in the gazebo and make sure they fit comfortably. Once you know the size of those items then you know how much space you have for people to move around in.

Before buying simply set up your chosen gazebo and mark out where your equipment may be placed, from there you can decipher whether you need more space.
