Outdoor awnings are ideal for summer entertaining

The Blinds With An Edge team recently installed outdoor awnings at a Bellarine Peninsula home in Clifton Springs, just in time for summer entertaining. Our extensive range of automatic awnings allowed the home owner to pick a fabric, colour, and style that complements the overall look of their home.

With the family planning on entertaining over the summer/autumn period, they wanted a window covering that would give them more control over the temperature of their home, allowing them to take advantage of the warmer weather, whilst still remaining comfortable.

Why choose outdoor awnings?

Outdoor awnings are the go-to choice when it comes to decreasing energy costs in your home and protecting it from harmful UV rays. Outdoor awnings can provide complete cover from the sun, or partial cover depending on your preference, allowing you to keep your home cooler in the summer or warmer during winter.

This is especially useful in coastal environments like the Bellarine Peninsula, where weather can change dramatically from season to season.

Because of awnings effectiveness in controlling how much solar heat your home receives, they can also save you money on your power bills. During summer you can block out the sun on really hot days, keeping your home cool and reducing costs associated with running your air conditioning for extended periods of time.

Also, because our awnings are retractable, during winter you can keep more natural sunlight in the home, allowing it to be warmed during the day.

When you have modern, retractable outdoor awnings that suit the style of your home, they will also add an aesthetic charm to the home, which in-turn adds value when it comes time to sell.
