What to consider when choosing awnings and blinds
What role do you need them for? – This initial question is the most important when it comes to selecting the right outdoor awnings or blinds. Are you trying to protect a set of furniture when it isn’t being used or are you seeking additional privacy in the backyard? Figuring out what purpose you need them for is the first step in narrowing down your available options.
Climate – In order to make the best use of the space all-year-round, you’ll want to think about how much of an impact weather is going to have. During summer you’ll need adequate protection from the harsh rays of the sun while in winter you’ll want more shelter from wind and rain.
If you plan to use your outdoor space most of the year, then you might be better off with retractable or folding awnings that allow you to alter the amount of coverage they have.
Ease of use – If you like to enjoy your patio at multiple times of day, then it’s likely you’ll want an easy means of altering the amount of coverage you get from your outdoor awnings or blinds. Nobody likes fiddling with awkward ropes and pulleys, so it pays to go with an option that’s motorised so that you can change the coverage the touch of a button.
Type of material – Your choice of fabric and material type should go hand in hand with considerations of climate. A PVC option will give you strong protection against wind and rain without compromising on the amount of natural light you let in.
Energy use – Outdoor awnings and blinds can be incredibly functional in terms of making your home more energy efficient, particularly in summer months where they can block a large percentage of UV rays from heating your home. This means that you won’t need to rely on air conditioning as often because your home is naturally cooler.
