Homes with large gardens can prove difficult to find when it comes to new builds and city homes, which is why making the most of limited outdoor space requires some creative thinking to create a relaxing alfresco living space to retreat to.
It can be a challenging concept to design a small garden area which integrates shade and shelter without restricting the layout, making permanent garden structures nearly impossible to incorporate without losing the outdoor essence. The perfect solution requires thinking outside the box, looking to traditional methods that can provide the necessary shade & shelter as and when it is needed without being obstructive to the user and disturbing the atmosphere.Retractable patio awnings have been a long-established, go to shading solution for shopfronts, dating back to Victorian times, when they were primarily used to reduce the impact of overheating and glare to create a comfortable shopping experience for clients. More recently whilst also serving this function they have been used to provide, quick, striking and cost effective cover to the outdoor space, whether for displaying merchandise under or protecting customers who are dining outside from the elements. For this reason and particularly during the recent lockdowns where we have had holiday at home, awnings have become the homeowners choice to enjoy the outdoor living lifestyle in shade and comfort.
Modern garden awnings are simply fixed to the exterior of the building, most often over glazed doors or windows and when extended, along with providing protection to the interior space to prevent increasing internal temperatures, they create a shaded oasis externally to relax under as-well as affording shelter from unexpected rain showers. Their retractable design gives the user complete flexibility whilst maximising on the amount of space they have, as the awning, once retracted, is neatly hidden away within a corrosion resistant, powder coated aluminium weather sealed cassette.
