Awning Ideas / February 23, 2019 / Leann Parker
Likewise when rain disturbs your outdoor plans--there s no reason to run inside. If you want to tan in the direct sun or take advantage of some heat on a cold fall day the awning can be rolled up just as quickly. When stored retractable awnings take up about six inches of horizontal space on the side of a building. Installed at a downward angle they need to be attached at least seven and a half feet off the ground. All right we ve covered "What are they?" Now let s deal quickly with the benefits that awnings give home and business owners. What can retractable awnings do for you? Obviously they give you a way to control the elements and this is more than an aesthetic pleasure since it preserves furniture from bleaching and lowers utility bills.
Blue: Based on your choice you can choose the sky deep or electric blue awnings. Each shade will further complement the exterior paints with natural color. If your home is painted white you can enhance its appeal by installing a blue awning with scalloped edges and white trim. However you have to evaluate different shades of blue if your exterior paint has a hint of orange. Green: The intensity of the green awning colors will vary according to your choice. You have option to choose the deep green moss green or grass green awnings. Each shade will also complement the homes painted in green tan or any other natural color. However if your home has red paint or designed with red bricks it is a good idea to avoid the green awnings. Yellow: You must exercise care while choosing yellow awnings.
By controlling sunlight you ll find yourself getting more use out of the amenities and spaces you already own: poolside deck balcony patio; grill gazebo outdoor bar hot tub. But there s more. Awnings act as an extension of your home adding square footage to your home or commercial building. They allow you to expand the look and feel of your interior into the outdoors serving as an architectural addition but without the typical costs. No contractor or expensive installation is required. In the residential setting this results in outdoor space for entertaining relaxing and eating. In the business setting it means additional room to seat patrons serve customers or hold meetings. In both cases the "outdoor rooms" end up adding value to the business or home. On top of this awnings result in direct energy savings. Installed strategically they make the inside of a building up to 15 degrees cooler cutting direct sunlight and shading windows.
