Outdoor living areas are popular in Queensland homes as a way to take advantage of the beautiful weather that seems to be present all year. However, if there is no shade, the harsh sun can make enjoying these spaces difficult and uncomfortable. Canvas awnings are a great solution to this problem, offering a variety of benefits for both your home and your lifestyle and, in truth, they are perfect for creating a shady oasis in your own backyard.

Here are five ways canvas awnings will transform your outdoor space.

Protection from the weather

An awning is a great way to protect your outdoor living area from the elements. Whether it’s a summer storm or the harsh sun, an awning will provide a barrier from the worst of the weather. Queensland homes are hit with a lot of sun and rain, so an awning is a must-
have if you want to make the most of your outdoor space, protect your furniture and, importantly, keep you and your family cool. Without a doubt, one of the best awnings for sun protection are canvas awnings. They provide a complete barrier from the sun’s
harmful UV rays.

Increased living space

An awning can provide additional living space that can be used all year. Essentially, you can create a shady oasis in your own backyard by installing a patio awning or an outdoor awning that can be retracted when needed. This is an excellent way to increase the value
of your home without undergoing costly renovations. There will always be an ideal location for a barbeque with friends, a family lunch or simply relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. Awnings, essentially, provide a comfortable space to relax in your own home, whether you
are enjoying the hot summer sun or soaking in the winter sun.

Reduce energy costs

Awnings can also help reduce your energy costs. By shading windows and doors from the sun’s heat, awnings can keep your home cooler in the summer. In the winter, awnings can reflect heat back into your home, making it warmer. This can help you save on your energy

bills year-round. So, if you are looking for a way to make your home more comfortable and save money, awnings may be the perfect solution.

Increased privacy

If you live in a busy area or simply want to enjoy a little more privacy in your own backyard, awnings can help. By providing shade and blocking out the sun’s rays, awnings can make your outdoor space more private. Whether you are relaxing in your backyard or
entertaining guests, awnings can help you enjoy a little more peace and quiet.

Add value to your property

Not only can awnings improve the look of your home, but they can also add value. If you are considering selling your home in the future, awnings can be a selling point for potential buyers. Even if selling is not on the horizon, awnings can still add value by protecting your
patio furniture and extending the life of your outdoor spaces.
