Retractable awnings are a great addition to any outdoor space. They offer protection from the sun, rain, and other elements when you need it, while also providing shade and creating a comfortable area to relax in.
What’s more, new modern retractable awnings can add an extra touch of luxury and convenience to your outdoor space.
You can install retractable awnings in a variety of locations at your home. Here are a few retractable awning ideas.
Over a Patio or Deck
A retractable awning over your patio or deck provides shade when you need it. Along with providing comfort for you and your family, a retractable patio awning protects your outdoor furniture from the elements.
If you have a large deck or patio, consider having a retractable awning over a portion.
Above Windows or Doors
Installing a retractable awning above windows or doors can help keep the sun out at certain times of the day. This reduces the amount of heat entering your home, reducing your energy bills.
Along with providing more privacy, retractable awnings over windows or doors can increase your home’s curb appeal.
On a Balcony
If you have a balcony, a retractable awning can provide shade and privacy when you want it. This creates a much more inviting space where you can relax.
And like placing an awning over a window or door, a retractable awning can help reduce your cooling costs during warmer months.
Over a Pool or Hot Tub
A retractable awning over your pool or hot tub can provide shade, privacy and shelter from the elements. It can also help prolong the lifetime of your hot tub and keep debris from getting in your pool.
A retractable awning over a hot tub or pool can also create a great lounging area for others not in the water.
On a freestanding structure
If you don’t have a patio or deck, consider installing a freestanding permanent structure in your backyard and attaching a retractable awning to it. This can create a shaded area in your yard or garden for outdoor dining or entertaining.
At a Commercial Location
Retractable awnings don’t only residential applications. Are you a business owner? These awnings are a great option for commercial locations such as restaurants, hotels, and storefronts.
They can provide shade for outdoor seating areas or protect merchandise from the sun or other elements.
