4 Great reasons to choose outdoor awnings for your home


When most people are thinking about window coverings for a new home or renovation project, they tend to focus on the inside of the home - selecting the right blinds, shutters or curtains. However, it's also important to think about the exterior of your home, where the right window coverings can also play a key role.

The right awnings can add instant appeal and style to your home, and are also important in protecting you, and your home's interiors, from the elements.

Here are some key reasons to think about outdoor awnings for your home:

Save On Energy Costs

Perhaps the most important reason to choose quality outdoor awnings for your home is the fact - when installed in the right place - they can help keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Specifically designed for the harsh UV and demanding Australian weather conditions, Luxaflex® outdoor blinds can help shade your windows, reducing the need for air conditioning and ultimately saving you on your energy costs.

Give an Instant Facelift

Another key reason to choose outdoor awnings is that they look great, and can instantly lift the overall appeal of your home. The Luxaflex® extensive range of awnings - from straight drop awnings to those with retractable arms, canopies, metal louvres and fixed metal awnings, meaning it's easy to find an option that suits your home's aesthetic.

Recently, when the team at Selling Houses Australia wanted to give a home in West Ryde more street appeal, one of the first things they did was to install some stylish awnings over the home's front windows. As well as adding a contemporary sophistication to the home, these awnings also delivered all-important shade protection for the sun-filled front rooms.

Protect your furniture on the inside

By providing shade when it's needed, your outdoor awnings can also help protect your furnishings from sunlight damage - meaning they're less likely to fade and wear, and will stay newer looking for longer.

There is also a range of automation solutions from Luxaflex® which enable you to control your awnings through remote controls, sensors and smartphones/tablets. This means you can set your awnings to retract or go up/down at certain times of the day (when, for instance, you may be on holiday) to keep your interiors protected year round.
