Enjoy life under an awning this summer with more time on your deck, and more time in nature.

Part of the joy of installing a new awning on your home is that this shade product makes life outdoors so much nicer. Whether you want to enjoy a dinner on your patio, relax in the shade with your pets or children, or create the perfect climate for your garden, a new awning can make life just that much more enjoyable. During the summer season, especially, homeowners love to use their awnings. Whether you are interested in a retractable or fixed home awning from Carroll Architectural Shade, life under an awning this summer can be more relaxing than ever. 

Enjoy Al Fresco Dining

You can make the most of the long, warm summer days by gathering friends and family for a fantastic al fresco dining experience. Set a beautiful table out underneath your awning to provide shade for your guests and ensure protection from any passing rain cloud. An outdoor awning makes dining outside a comfortable, luxurious experience for all. 

Extend Your Comfortable Living Space

You can easily extend your cozy indoor space out onto your patio with the help of a new awning this summer. This can be especially nice if you have sliding doors or a sliding screen door you can use as an easy barrier between the indoor and outdoor space. The shade and comfort provided by the awning make for an easy flow between in and out and add some classic style. Add some sofas and a coffee table outside to create a relaxing, social space for your family and friends. 

Invest in Stylish Outdoor Furniture 

When you install an awning on your home, you can finally invest in that beautiful outdoor furniture you’ve admired. This is because awnings provide shade not just to people but also to property! The shade protects your furniture from prolonged sun exposure and fading and from rain and falling leaves or other natural debris. 

Create a Shaded Play Area 

You can protect your kids this summer by encouraging them to play under the shade of your new awning. You can install large awnings from Carroll Architectural Shade that cover most of your patio or deck. This makes it easy for kids to play with toys, sandboxes, and more under the protection of your awning. This way, your kids are less likely to get sunburnt or get dehydrated and tired from the hot weather. 

Decorate Your Outdoor Space

Life under your awning can be stylish and fun with the addition of potted plants and string lights. Your plants can thrive more easily when they can rest under the shade during the hottest parts of the day, and twinkling lights can create a comfortable outdoor space that encourages you to stop and smell the flowers.
