Awnings are a beautiful addition to any garden, but the aesthetic is not the only advantage that they bring. Keep reading to find our top four reasons why an awning can be the perfect addition to your garden.

What Is An Awning?

An awning is a canvas type of shelter that is usually rolle out from the side of a building or from a caravan, which provides shade. It can be rolled out and retracted very easily, providing you with a nice shaded area for your home.

Why Is An Awning Good For My Home?

We have outlined four main reasons why an outdoor awning is a brilliant addition to your home:

Protection & Shelter

An awning is a great source of shelter from the sun and keeps you shaded on hot days. It will protect you and your outdoor furniture from UV rays and extreme weather. Here in the UK, rain is always around the corner, and an awning can even keep your furniture protected from more gloomy weather too. However, awnings do tend to struggle in windy conditions so be careful of this.

Extending Your Living Space

Having an awning can make your living space feel bigger too. With a nice outdoor area to relax in, you can feel as though it is an extension of your home.

If you have a nice patio or some sliding doors out into your garden then an awning can be a great way to elevate your home.

Temperature Control

Having an awning will keep that side of your home cooler because it is in the shade. This will help keep your home cooler inside too, meaning you won’t need to use fans or air conditioning as much and the interior temperature will be more regulated, potentially saving you money on your bills.

Increased Property Value

Because an awning adds an extra area of living space to your home, in turn, the value of your home is likely to increase. If you are considering selling your property at some point in the future, then an awning can be an attractive feature for buyers.
