Awning Ideas / February 14, 2019 / Katelyn Mooney
Originality is the basic requirement for branding success. Tailored designs with well-suited texture and color make the right impact. You need to work with your contractor to come up with a design that is unique and capable of creating your own unique identity. You have to be clear about your objective as it will define the contours of your campaign. A house is not really a home if it doesn t provide comfortable living to it s inhabitants which is why residential awnings are an important addition to any outdoor living area. A well placed awning that brings form and function to your landscaping can also open up your home by creating a moderate transition between the enclosed spaces indoors and the natural surroundings outside.
The great thing about retractable awnings is that you can have them custom made to fit anywhere inside or outside your home no matter what the window or deck size. Patio awnings as well as other types come in a wide range of colors too. It s easy to match them to your home. And if you purchase a retractable awning for a window or deck you won t have to manually put up and take down the awning every time you go to use it. Awnings can be made of a wide variety of different materials. They are made of canvas aluminum and other materials. Aluminum awnings have different benefits and drawbacks compared to canvas awnings - it depends on what you want to use the awning for. Awnings were quite popular in the 1920s but have been enjoying a comeback in recent years especially because of the high costs of air conditioning. Awnings used to be on every window and porch to keep homes cool before air conditioning was ever invented.
Many people that buy a motorized retractable awning want it because they can expand their outdoor living space with the touch of a button and many people put them over their windows for shade control and energy savings. Because the awning is retractable through a motorized unit it can easily be let out or put away with the touch of a button by a single person instead of several people working in coordination to manually open and close a non-motorized retractable awning over their patio. Of course some people love a motorized retractable awning because they don t want to permanently attach a non-retractable sun faded canvas awning that detracts from their home s exterior. The newer brands of motorized retractable awnings use strong waterproof woven acrylic that doesn t fade.
