Patio Awnings - A Great Addition to the Patio

AwningsThe great thing about a patio is all the fun and entertaining you can do out there on it. Whether that’s entertaining with friends or family, as long as the weather is dry, an outdoor patio can become a real centre point for the family.

So how can you improve what you have with your patio? Well, firstly you need to make sure your patio furniture is clean and tidy. Whatever style you choose to have, keeping your furniture in good condition means whenever you need it, it’s ready for you to use. You may also wish to consider a patio awning. Patio awnings are a great way to improve the surroundings of your garden area often giving the impression of making your patio appear bigger than it really is which is ideal if you have a modest sized patio to begin with.

Motorised AwningAn awning will offer protection against hot summer sun or shelter from a light summer shower and presents a pleasant shade for you to rest in on your patio. If you are entertaining, an awning can offer some respite for your guests to ward off the afternoon sun, or if you are eating al fresco in the evening can be very effective at helping to create a warm cosy atmosphere, helping to keep any warmth generated from heating appliances such as electric or gas patio heaters. With a wide range of colours, designs and options available awnings are becoming more and more popular.

For the height of luxury you may wish to consider a motorised awning, which can offer shade at the touch of a button. Simple to install, an electric awning offers a fully motorised option including retraction. With UV protection and completely waterproof acrylic material these awnings are ideal regardless of the weather conditions, and with the awning fully closed it is kept neat and tidy and out of the way in a powder coated aluminum alloy frame cassette when not in use.

AwningShould you be looking for something a little more simple in operation, our manually retractable balcony awnings, offers the opportunity to make the most of your balcony or patio in rain or shine. Simple to use, these manual awnings make for a simple economical option where cost is a consideration.

Whichever style of awning you decide upon, with simple installation of the awning to a suitable wall, you will add a certain individual style to your patio. With the awning attached to the wall, along with the electric motor if you decide on a motorised version the awning can be moved into position and adjusted easily though the use of a remote control from the comfort of your chair if the system has provision for this or via the push of a button which is fitted conveniently on the wall.

As an addition to the garden, an awning for the patio area offers the ideal option to help create that unique look often searched for, and the ideal way to make your patio more inviting and attractive.
