Awnings make an ideal addition to the home in our Australian climate. Because we get some harsh rays from the sun and also love to entertain outdoors, they offer protection from the sun and also allow for extra entertaining space.
Cutting out the rays of the sun from coming into a home that has awnings means a great amount of heat is reduced indoors. There are many benefits to this, for instance, furniture and carpets are protected from sun damage; also, you don’t need to run the air conditioning as soon in summer.
At Image Blinds we have a great range of awnings for your home to choose from. Various designs, styles, colours and fabrics means you will easily be able to choose the right style for your tastes, needs and budget.
Choosing a style
Because of the various styles of awnings available you need to have a clear idea in mind regarding the purpose you want the awning to serve so that you choose the right one. Traditional style awnings are smaller than the more modern styles.
These are effective in blocking the sun at certain times of the day and they add a different aesthetic style to your home or office. The shaped awning is great for shop fronts, walkways leading into foyers or for homes that want a more traditional awning style. These are available in traditional, colonial style or Dutch hoods.
If you want more coverage from your awning for entertaining and to block more sun during the day then you might like to consider one of our many other styles. At Image Blinds we have a great range from retractable arm awnings, pivot arm window awnings, motorised awnings and more. A chat with one of our professional consultants will help you decide which is best for you.
Advantage of motorised awnings
Motorised awnings provide a little more than a traditional awning style. Because you are able to control their position, you can allow as little or as much sunlight as you wish into your entertainment areas or home.
The motorisation makes these awnings easy to use so the elderly or those with any arthritic issues can use these blinds with no problems at all.
Choosing the material
Naturally, you select a fabric or colour that complements the home or office; however, other considerations when choosing awnings is the type of fabric or material the awnings are to be made from.
