6 Fantastic Reasons to Invest in Awnings for Your Home
Awnings are the perfect solution if you’re looking to both protect your home and increase its curb appeal—and maybe even its value. Gone are the days when awnings were nothing more than vinyl rollout contraptions or basic wooden structures. Now it’s possible to dress your home up in the materials, styles, and designs that meet your unique needs and preferences. Modernize presents six good reasons to consider investing in awnings for your home:
Use awnings to add curb appeal while providing sun protection for comfortable afternoons spent sipping tea on the porch. Patios with awnings are the perfect outdoor environment for family get-togethers and intimate dinner parties. Whether retractable, wrought iron, or spear style, you should find it easy to implement awnings that complement your home’s current style and décor.
Multi-level awnings add extra space to a home and provide a grander look and feel overall. They allow for comfortable movement from one floor to another while outdoors whether it’s super sunny or rainy and windy. With wrap-around awnings, you have the opportunity to create a variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy under one roof—a candle lit dining area, a cozy barbecue space, or even an outdoor bath house are all possibilities.
Enclosing a patio or porch with the help of a sturdy awning will add square footage to your home and supply you with enough space to create a new and exciting environment to enjoy. Consider turning your enclosed porch into a home office, a guest room, or a meditation space full of plants. An enclosed awning area offers all the comforts of indoors, such as protection from mosquitoes and wind, while providing an opportunity to enjoy the fresh outdoors, beautiful sunrises, and invigorating afternoons.
Combining an awning with a hanging shade system turns any porch, patio, or balcony into a two-in-one system. When the weather outside is nice and comfortable, the shades can be lifted for full exposure to the outdoors. During gloomy or rainy days, the shades can be partially or fully closed for protection from the elements without losing the ability to use your outdoor space.
Sun shining directly into your home through the windows can be harmful, as the UV rays can expose your skin, your flooring, and your furnishings to damage. Implementing awnings on your windows will keep the sun from shining directly in, which gives you full control over your light filtering options when combined with a set of sheer curtains or drapes.
Overall, awnings are an excellent idea whether you live off the land in a small cottage or maintain a swanky home in the suburbs of a large city. With so many styles, colors, sizes, and designs to choose from, you’re sure to find an option that meets your personal and lifestyle needs.
Porch valances added the finishing touch to this beautiful home in Marco Island Florida. Porch Valances by the pool area soften the hard walls and add color. Using Costa track to install these eliminates seeing hardware a creates a clean installation. The fabric has the insert sewn to the top, then simply slides through the track.
With Costa track you can slide out the old fabric and easily slide in new fabric. So anytime you want to change the look, its easy to do and with over 100 Sunbrella fabric color selections, the possibilities are endless.
