We can’t always rely on British summer time. The sun begins to peak and we naturally venture outdoors, light the BBQ and make the most of the sunshine while it lasts. Before you know it, the clear blue sky is flooded with grey clouds and the spark in your BBQ has gone out. You take the party inside, when moments later, the sun begins to shine through the clouds. You rush outside to enjoy the glorious warm weather… until the next shower of rain. Make the most of the outdoors this summer with patio awnings from Blinds By Martyn, that offers protection from the ever-changing ambient conditions.
Patio awnings provide shade from the sun and shelter from the rain, allowing you to enjoy the alfresco lifestyle all year round. There is something about alfresco dining that us Brits love. Maybe it’s because the only time we can sit outside to eat and socialise is on holiday. A patio awning over your terrace can change that, allowing you to dine outdoors come rain or shine.
Our patio awnings are stylish and most importantly practical, that outstretch to provide shade from the sun’s intense heat, while keeping you cool on the hottest summer days, much like the ones we were lucky to experience throughout June. Damaging ultraviolet rays are blocked. Skin is protected whilst harsh light is filtered to stop unwanted glare.
Patio awnings for day and night use
During the summer, we all like to make the most of the long summer evenings. Even when the temperature drops, enjoying a few drinks in the garden with family and friends is the perfect end to a summer’s day. Ambient patio awning accessories, such as LED strip lighting, give off a warm glow and low glare infrared heating, so you can use your patio long into the evening.
Patio awnings can also be used to create a perfect play space for children, without the worry of their exposure to the harsh UV rays of the sun.
Extend your indoor living space out into the garden, without the need to build a costly extension or conservatory. A patio awning creates the illusion of more space in your home, essentially giving you an extra room.
Among the multiple outdoor benefits, a patio awning can also offer protection to the adjoining room inside the house. If your house is in full sun all day it can absorb the heat, releasing it in the evenings and making your home uncomfortably hot. Fans and air conditioning units can be expensive to run, and are not particularly environmentally friendly. With a patio awning, the sun’s rays are prevented from reaching the glass, reducing solar heat gain and naturally cooling the indoor space. Indoor furniture is also protected from sun bleaching, without disrupting the view outside.
An endless array of styles are available, so you can tailor your own bespoke awning to accommodate your taste and needs. Whether you are an avid gardener or a minimal maintainer, you are sure to find an awning that compliments your outdoor space.
Our patio awnings are highly durable and corrosion resistant, meaning they are built to last. Extensively and rigorously tested, the outdoor awning systems withstand all the elements. After all, the British weather is highly diverse, so you can have peace of mind that your awning will perform through all weather conditions.
