Houses with awnings on the Central Coast are better shaded and have better temperature regulation than houses without awnings. Awnings also add privacy to your house, protect your belongings from damage from the sun’s rays, and create additional space for relaxing and entertaining outdoors.
Here at Bay Blinds & Doors, we offer a wide selection of awning choices to meet your needs. Here’s how to choose the best ones for your home.
Consider the Awning Material
The material you choose for your awning is important because different varieties work better for certain purposes. Pay attention to colour and design as well so that it meshes with the exterior of your house. Outdoor fabric awnings require a bit more maintenance than aluminium awnings so that’s something to keep in mind too. At the same time, outdoor fabrics are easier to customize than other types of awnings.
The Angle of the Awning
You might not pay much attention to angles, but that’s pretty important when choosing awnings. Not only does this play a part in how functional your awnings are, but it also factors into how they look when they’re installed. Considering the angle also allows you to control the amount of sunlight coming through the windows.
Size and Shape of the Awning
Obviously, your awning will need to be the right size and shape for the place you plan to have them installed. The size you choose depends on where you plan to put the awning and the size of your overall space.
A smaller awning is ideal for boosting visual appeal, while a larger one is perfect for creating shade in your outdoor living space. You can also customise the shape of your awning if you’d like so that you can get the exact look and feel you want and need.
Another thing to think about is the colour of the awning. Choosing the right shade ensures that the product you decide to buy matches the look of your home and doesn’t stand out in a mismatched way. Our awnings come in a variety of colours so you can choose the one that melds best with the exterior of your house. This creates visual appeal combined with the function of your awning.
