Preparing for Summer

As temperatures climb and the evenings get longer, your outdoor space gives you a great opportunity to enjoy the warmer weather. Whether you’ve got a garden, courtyard or a terrace, automated awnings can increase your outdoor comfort and allow you to enjoy the summer for longer.

For too long, British homeowners have relied on trust umbrellas and parasols in the summer but these simply aren’t functional or aesthetically pleasing. An umbrella only provides minimal protection from the sun, and it may need constant manoeuvring to give you any sort of shade, not to mention you’ll be chasing it around the garden if there’s any hint of blustery conditions. Furthermore, the hassle of retrieving your umbrella for the loft, garage or shed and piecing it together can put you off using it or spending time outside.

With motorised awnings, however, you can get the full benefit of your outdoor space and ample protection from the heat too. Ready to use whenever you need it, seamless integration means you can extend or retract your awnings at the touch of a button.

Automate Your Outdoor Space

Whether you’ve got bi-folding doors which you can open up the summer, a paved patio or decking in your garden, motorised awnings can give the appearance of a larger outdoor environment. Offering protection from the sun – and rain showers! – a motorised awning allows you to make the most of the weather and spend as much time outdoors as you can.

Once installed, automated awnings are extremely easy-to-use, and they can be incorporated into your existing automation systems if you wish. You can even choose to control your awnings with your voice, so creating the perfect outdoor environment has never been easier!

Available in a variety of colours and patterns, you can complement your existing colour scheme with new awnings or go for something bold and colourful to brighten up your summer. If you want to create something truly spectacular, why not integrate LED lighting and heating into the awning itself?

Providing the perfect ambience for relaxing summer evenings, heated awnings ensure you can spend time outdoors without feeling the chill, and extra lighting gives you the opportunity to create a bespoke outdoor space.

Whilst automated awnings give you more options when it comes to how you use your outdoor space, they also offer increased privacy. With a motorised awning installed, you’ll be protected from prying eyes and nosy neighbours, which means you can enjoy your garden without interruption.

Installing Automated Awnings

With a single reach of 18m wide and projections from 1.5m to 9m, automated awnings are ideal for the vast majority of properties. With automatic retraction in gusty conditions, you can be sure your new motorised awning will stand up to British weather this summer!

With free measuring and installation services available, you won’t have to worry about placement or fitting, and we’ll be on hand to provide any help you need. To find out more about motorised awnings, contact Smart Blinds now.
