Awnings can be a fantastic addition to the house to add personality to your garden, provide a touch of shade for the warmer months, shelter you from rain, and truly put your stamp on your home. However, there are many different types of awnings to choose from, each with their own benefits. With this guide, you can decide which awning is best for your needs and have the perfect canopy installed on your property.

Garden Awnings

A garden awning allows you to enjoy your garden all year round, come rain or shine. This type of canopy offers you coverage from direct sunlight or a spot to hide from the rain, as well as privacy for your garden events. You can either opt for a retractable awning or a fixed position, but no matter which you choose, you will love the aesthetic and shelter a garden awning offers. We offer a variety of colours, styles, and designs that match your property, giving you the best quality awning possible.

Patio Awnings

Create your own Mediterranean plaza in your outdoor space with a patio awning. While this type of awning is similar to a garden awning, it is designed specifically to be used over a patio to create a shaded, secluded spot. Imagine opening your awning on a sunny day to have a barbecue around your shaded garden table… it would be idyllic! Patio awnings are the ideal choice if you want to bring a touch of summer holiday fun to your home.

Dutch Canopies

Dutch canopies are loved across the globe for their functionality and unique appearance. With a distinctive, quadrant shape, this type of awning covers the top portion of a window, creating pleasant shade in a compact space. This is a popular choice for both homeowners and business owners as they offer effective protection against excessive sunlight and maintain a cooler indoor temperature. This means that these types of awnings could be ideal if you want to stop your home from overheating in the summer or protect the products in your shop window from sun damage.

Adaptive Systems

If you need something a little more stable, you may be interested in an adaptive system. This type of awning is supported by front legs, which makes them sturdier in windy conditions and offering further security to your shelter. Our adaptive systems are made to measure in a range of colour and materials to provide a bespoke solution for your specific requirements. This means that they are perfect for both residential properties or commercial buildings, such as restaurants or shops.
