The Benefits Of Awning Walls

Home & Garden Blog

Whether you own an awning or you are thinking about adding one to your property, you may want to consider adding awning walls at the same time. Awning walls allow you to take full advantage of the great outdoors but give you extra protection against the sun's rays and any strong breezes that might suddenly whip up without warning and send your plates and napkins flying. You can choose to have awning walls installed alongside an awning or fitted independently, and there are many benefits to doing so. 

Protection From The Elements

There is nothing nicer than entertaining friends and family outdoors. However, on a hot day when the sun is beating down, some extra protection can ensure you and your guests are comfortable. While an awning provides protection from overhead sunrays, awning walls will do the same thing around the edges of your awning. When the sun is rising or setting and is in a different position in the sky, awning walls give excellent protection and more shade. 

More Privacy

If you have low fences on either side of your property or if you are overlooked by neighbors from windows above your patio or deck, awning walls can be the perfect solution. They allow you to appreciate the great outdoors while also giving you extra privacy when you are enjoying your garden. Awning walls are retractable too, so you are in total control of when you decide to have them in place. 

Great For Kids And Pets

When you want to provide a shady area for your kids or pets to play and relax, awning walls provide the perfect solution, especially if the rest of your garden enjoys full sun all day. You could even use an extendable baby gate at the opening of your awning to create a fenced-off area that is safe and secure. 

A Wealth Of Colours And Designs

Awning walls come in a wide range of colours and designs, giving you lots of options when it comes to matching or complementing a new or existing awning. Most companies will have brochures showing you exactly what your awning and awning walls will look like and will be able to give you plenty of advice on the best solution to choose for your property. Awning walls are a great addition to any home and will ensure you can enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about what the weather has in store.

Turning Your Home into Your Workplace

When I decided to become a freelance designer, I decided I would work from home. I was sick and tired of being in an office all day and to be honest, some of my workmates were pretty annoying. However, I did not consider that I might have to make some changes to my home in order to make it suitable. On the first day of my new life working from home, I realised I would need much more natural light, so I had new windows installed. I then realised that I would need a larger work table to work on my cut out designs. In the end, I made hundreds of changes and I learnt an awful lot about home improvement.
