The Benefit of Garden Awnings
Posted on September 11, 2020
If during these strange few months you’ve spent more time than usual at home and in the garden looking at ways to enhance your home and outdoor space, you could consider a garden awning! Sometimes known as a retractable patio awning, these modern marvels offer a range of features for you to enjoy. Lets take a quick look at what makes an awning unique, as well as the services that Othello Blinds can provide for you.
The Benefits of a Retractable Canopy
Garden awnings are ideal to use during the summer months, and for good reason! They provide shade and protection to not only the room they are installed above, but provide a shaded sitting area for you, your friends and family on a hot Summer’s day when it’s just too nice to be sat indoors. Come the evening when things start to cool off, they give that sense of shelter; and if combined with an outdoor patio heater, help focus that heat where its wanted. At the end of the night, simply press a button and away it goes. Our awnings are what we call showerproof – light rain will roll off the top, but please note they are not waterproof and heavy or persistent rain will eventually permeate the fabric.
While awnings are highly functional and built to last, there are several other reasons why they can make an excellent addition to your garden. Our selection of awnings have been designed to be user-friendly. Installation is straightforward and they are suited for numerous purposes. Whether you are celebrating a birthday party, enjoying a few cocktails, relaxing with a good book, or planning a family BBQ, they will undoubtedly come in handy – rain or shine.
Aesthetics are a final point to mention. After all, an awning canopy should be in-keeping with the existing decor of your property. The good news is that Othello Blinds offer a number of bespoke solutions, designs and colours, so we can help you to find the perfect addition to your outside space.
