What is the space being used for?

Increasingly, the garden is becoming an extension of the home or premises and is to be treated as another room. A great deal of care is taken to ensure that the interiors live up to expectations and your awning installation should be just as gratifying.  Create continuity between the two spaces easily with the right choices.

What will you be doing in this outdoor room? Hosting parties, family dinners, cooking barbeques, playing football with the children, reading, potting plants…

As 2018’s summer taught us, the temperatures and sun can have a great effect on our ability to function, sleep and eat. Having adequate shade is essential to allow maximum enjoyment of your space.

You may also benefit from lighting and heaters, which are optional extras.

Where is the right position for your awning?

As the sun moves through the sky during the day and across the seasons, every awning should be large enough to protect you from the sun, whatever its angle, so it is highly recommended that even the most confident and enthusiastic DIY’ers speak to professional awning suppliers so that a comprehensive survey can be completed, and the awning installation placed in exactly the right position. Common dimensions are to 5.5m wide and 3.5m projection.
