Adelaide is known for its scenic views, which makes outdoor living a natural part of Aussies’ daily life. However, if it rains on your barbeque party or the sun is constantly shining on you, it can drive you back indoors. When building a new home, you should make sure that your outdoor living space will be habitable, pleasant, and memorable for the whole family. For this reason, it is advisable to consider adding custom made awnings Adelaide to your new home construction.
One of the most delightful things about awnings is that they will protect you, your family, and your home from the harsh rays of the sun without making a significant impact on your house plans. Instead, they can be installed without reshaping the façade of your home or putting up obstructive support poles. They will not block your view and are designed to be self-storing when retracted.
Various options are available for your new home, especially if you’re going for custom made awnings Adelaide. They can be customised by the manufacturer to suit your needs in terms of length, width, and materials used.
Awnings, when installed correctly, are not only aesthetically pleasing but also provide significant energy savings. Those with dark-coloured fabrics are the most solar efficient and can reduce indoor temperatures the most. Your new home could be cooler by 10 to 15 degrees, with the help of block out awnings.
Retractable awnings can keep the elements and the heat at bay – on your terms. When the sun is too bright, or it rains too hard, all you need to do is extend the awning for instant shade and protection. When extended, they will decorate your outdoor living area and give it a more attractive look. Your custom home builder can mount them on the roof, on the wall, or underneath an eave for a more concealed, streamlined design.
Retractable custom awnings have different options for motorisation. Some may have a manual crank, while others can have a wall switch, remote control operation, or integration into smart-home automation systems.
The most sophisticated custom made awnings Adelaide would have sensors that could detect the weather – the awnings would retract if a storm is coming and extend if the sun is too bright. If you’re building a custom home with automation systems in place, it’s best to integrate in the design to increase your level of comfort while lounging outdoors.
