Here at Newton le Willows Blinds & Curtains, we want to help you make the most of your outdoor space this summer. Whilst the sun is cracking the flags at the moment, we thought what better time to get some shade with the perfect awning. This will enable you to enjoy the hot weather to its full potential all whilst staying protected from the UV rays. Having an awning allows you to enjoy the summer at your own leisure, and they can also look pretty great with your home, too.

We wanted to share with you a few of the reasons why getting an awning could be ideal for you this summer, as well as give you a bit of information about the different types available.

The benefits of having an awning

There are many benefits of having an awning, both practical and aesthetical. They are perfect for the family, for example if you’re hosting a BBQ and are inviting some guests round, they provide the best space for you to get together and relax. Furthermore, they can be a really good accessory for your garden and your home, as they come in so many different styles. Many places, like ourselves, provide awnings made to measure, so that they really are the perfect fit for your home. This means that you won’t have to worry about finding the right fit yourself, and instead can focus on picking the right design, so that your awning is both practical and stylish. With so many different designs and features available within your awning, you can be sure that they will provide great comfort for you and your family.

The types of awnings you can get

A lot of people tend to assume that awnings are quite basic and simple, however this isn’t necessarily the case. There are so many different kinds of awnings available, all with different capabilities and functions, and this may open your eyes to the benefits you could gain from them and how well they would fit into your home.

One example is motorised awnings. These automatically open and close with just the ush of a button and so no manual action is required, you can control it right from where you’re sat – you don’t have to lift a finger. Furthermore, some awnings come with weather sensors. So, the way these work is that as the weather changes, so do they. For instance, as the sun moves throughout the day and the direction of the sunlight changes, the awning will adjust accordingly to keep the exposure controlled, and you won’t have to make the adjustments yourself and be troubled with moving it throughout the day.

Finally, just one more example of how awnings can vary and the things they can facilitate, are integrated lighting and heating. An awning doesn’t have to just be as simple as a piece of material. With integrated lighting and heating you can stay comfortable all the time and you don’t have to make the efforts to get these things yourself.
