Why have a Patio Awning?

Awnings from Insignia Blinds

Why a Patio Awning is a Perfect Addition to Your Home This Summer

Patio awnings are an excellent way of providing you with a comfortable, shaded environment. Where you can enjoy your garden, without the risk of sunburn and glare.

Patio Awnings Provide the Perfect Workspace

When the weather is nice, the last thing we want to do is stay inside. Especially in an area like Bournemouth known for its fresh sea air and beauty spots. If you work from home on a laptop, without the shade provided by a patio awning, you may be forced to do just that. A garden awning allows you to make the nicest weather. Whilst also providing the perfect work environment by eliminating that irritating sun glare. 

Patio Awnings Provide a Relaxing Reading Space

Few things beat a good book. It’s one of the most common activities people undertake whilst on their summer holidays. Reading outdoors can be incredibly relaxing. Though many would like to be outside enjoying the sunshine, some cannot.

One in six people experiences uncomfortable allergic reactions when exposed to sunlight. Such as itchy rashes and blisters. The shade provided by a new awning means that you can enjoy your favourite book without the risk of a reaction. As well as at a more comfortable temperature.

Patio Awnings Provide a Comfortable Dining Area

As we head into BBQ season, more of homeowners will be doing their cooking outdoors. A patio awning provides the perfect space to place a dining table and chairs. So that you can entertain guests and enjoy your meals in the great outdoors. 

Not only will the shade keep your diners at a comfortable temperature. The shade can protect food, especially cold desserts, from expiring too quickly. An awning isn’t just effective in protecting you from the sun, it can also protect you from a passing shower. So you don’t all have to rush indoors laden with food and plates!

Insignia Shade and Shutter Company supply and install a made-to-measure garden and patio awnings across Dorset and Hampshire. Fitted with the option of an electronic open and close function. We have fabrics, colours and designs to suit all tastes. So don’t hesitate to contact us on 01202 741671 for awnings in Poole & Bournemouth.

Beautiful shutters and fabulous service

Cannot recommend Insignia enough Brian came along on a bank holiday to measure up and gave us a good price and realistic delivery date. The shutters arrived bang on time and Pav and Matt came to install them. Lovely guys who were polite, friendly and didn’t leave a speck of dust behind. We now have beautiful shutters in five rooms and could not be more pleased!
