• Tips and Canvas Awning Ideas for a Patio Space

    Quiet Place

    Whether you are renovating your current yard or moving into a house that needs work, creating a patio space can help you take advantage of your outdoor area. Before you can choose residential awnings and solar screens to optimize the appeal, you first have to design a patio. Use these tips to figure out the best way to add a patio to your space:

    Think About How You Want to Use It If you only want to set up a table and chairs on your patio, the design will look much different than if you want to create a space that is ideal for entertaining. Whichever size you choose, it is important to leave enough space around your furniture for people to easily walk by. Determining how you will use the area before you start designing will help you figure out how much space you need .

    Consider Creating Different Areas With awnings, solar screens, patio furniture, and the right landscaping, you can create a few distinctive areas in your yard. If you want to create more than one outdoor living area, take that into consideration when determining the size of your patio. To make your outdoor living area into one cohesive space, you might want to expand the patio a little further into the yard.

    Create a Mock Patio Before you decide on the sizing for your patio, test it out to make sure everything will fit. You can use measuring tape and rope to designate the area and get a feel for the dimensions. You might also bring some of your interior furniture outside to make sure there’ll be enough room for people to navigate the space.

    Once your patio is set up, Moran Canvas Products can provide the custom awnings you need to add the finishing touches. Our residential and commercial awnings and solar screens will make your outdoor space more beautiful and functional. Call (888) 904-8665 to learn more about our selection .

  • Retractable Awning vs. Roman Shades: Which Option Is Right for You?

    Retractable Awning

    Sunlight can cause serious damage to your home. Long-term exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can permanently damage carpets, furniture, and many of your other possessions. This overview of retractable canvas awnings and roman shades will teach you more about two of the most effective shading strategies.

    Retractable Awnings: Retractable awnings are installed over your home’s exterior windows. This position allows the awnings to cast shade over your windows, patio, and nearby patio furniture. Retractable awnings protect your home from more than ultraviolet radiation. Awnings offer extra shade during the hot summer and protect your patio from surprise rainstorms. Choose retractable awnings for your homes if you would like to add curb appeal to your home. A custom awning maker can design a colorful awning that perfectly complements your home. Retractable awnings are also a great addition to your backyard if you regularly host barbecues and picnics. An experienced canvas professional can install retractable awnings over any window.
    Roman Shades:
    Roman shades are fabric blinds that are hung from the inside of your window. These corded fabric shades can be used to protect your home from sunlight, beautify your interiors, and protect your windows. Dark colored roman shades do an exceptional job of keeping radiant heat out of your home. This reduction in heat will make your interior more comfortable and can also reduce your monthly cooling costs. Roman shades also make your windows easier to clean—the blinds prevent dust and debris from collecting on window panes. Choose Roman shades if you would like to add a low-cost window treatment that prevents sun damage and adds style to your living space.
