Awning Ideas / February 16, 2019 / Charlene Kane
Awnings don t require poles (which would clutter the view) since they are attached with spring-loaded mounts. The "retractable" type of awnings differ from basic immobile awnings in that they last longer (can be rolled up in damaging weather) and allow a space to be used in a variety of ways--both drinks in the shade and stargazing for example. On the large end of the spectrum awnings today can be upwards of 30 feet in width and around 14 feet in depth. They are controlled automatically via weather sensors or a remote control button or by hand using a manual crank. Either way these awnings can be unfurled or retracted in less than a minute. What are the practical implications of this? When you want to cool an area down like a concrete poolside or overheated deck shade is just seconds away.
Keeping sunlight out of a home is an efficient and effective way to regulate temperatures and ensure your home is comfortable. Even if you don t need awnings to cool your home they are great additions to the exterior of a home making it easier to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. These days newer stronger fabrics are used for awnings so you don t have to worry about the elements taking their toll on the fabric and causing premature fading. The awnings of today are also designed with style in mind. Beautiful fabrics make a wonderful addition to any backyard or patio and you can choose colors and patterns that match your outdoor décor and patio furniture. Not all campers come equipped with camper awnings. Camper awnings can act as a sunshade or shelter from a light rain in many cases.
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.
