If you’re keen to add a sheltered area to your garden, but you’re not ready to commit to a large veranda or garden room, then you might find garden awnings an appealing option. Garden awnings are designed to work around you and can be very beneficial in British gardens. To find out why, just keep reading.
Small gardens can be quite difficult to design. With minimal space to work with, you have to get creative if you want to make the most of the available space. A lot of homeowners argue that garden rooms and verandas wouldn’t work in their gardens, simply because they would take up too much space. That’s where garden awnings come in.
Garden awnings are a much more discreet and streamlined option if you’re worried about the use of space. Awnings can be attached directly onto the outside of your home and provide shelter in the form of an extendable piece of weather-resistant fabric. When you’re using your awning, you’ll notice it’s very streamlined and takes up very little space. When you retract your awning, the fabric rolls inside the unit and can no longer be seen at all. Therefore, garden awnings are a great option for homeowners with a minimal garden design in mind.
Bright and colourful
One benefit of garden awnings that you may not have considered, is their ability to add a beautiful splash of colour to your outdoor space. Garden awning suppliers like SunSpaces, are able to customise the material and mechanical components of your chosen awning so that it matches your garden design perfectly. Whether you want a bright orange awning for a fresh spring look, or a muted, grey awning for a modern garden, there’s sure to be a customisable awning that takes your fancy.
You might have an idea in your head that garden awnings are cumbersome and difficult to operate. Well, nowadays, you can kiss goodbye to a manually operated awning on an outdated pulley system. There are a wide range of modern garden awnings that can be wirelessly controlled using a remote control, meaning you can quickly deploy your awning if a black cloud appears overhead, without even leaving your seat.
Being able to control your garden awning with ease, means you can spend less time worrying about sheltering guests and more time relaxing and enjoying your beautiful garden. We’re sure that you’ll find a garden awning a stylish, practical and eye-catching addition to your garden space.
