Choose the right awning for your home

2 mins read

Your home or office can be greatly improved by installing an awning. From straight drop to outdoor retractable awnings, there are various types to choose from.

Of course, depending on your home style and your needs, you will want to choose a specific one. In this article, we will help you know exactly which awning to choose.

Sun soaked home

Does your home get a lot of sun? Then you need an awning to help combat the harsh rays!

Awnings are great for providing shade while improving the aesthetic of your home. However, as Aussies, we love the sun. This is why a retractable awning would be an ideal choice.

When the sun is blasting, you can simply extend the awning and have shade. But during those days when you need a good tan, you can retract it easily. Whether you want manual or electric awnings, we have a wide variety for you to choose from.

Home business

With many homes now doubling as a place of work, now is the perfect time to express your brand in a professional and functional way.

If you conduct business from your home, or perhaps just want to help expand your brand, getting an awning that is custom printed is ideal. A straight drop awning will help reduce the heating and cooling costs of your home, while being a perfect platform for you to advertise your business or a promotional offer.

Busy home

By busy home, we mean a house that is often a place for entertainment or where there is a lot of social activity. A home like this benefits from a minimalistic awning that is slim and attractive yet purposeful.

With lots of guests, you want to make a statement and provide shade, without making the place feel claustrophobic. In this case, having an electric retractable awning is ideal because with just the push of a button, you can extend or retract your shade without awkward winding or manoeuvring.

Old home

Perhaps you have an older home style and you think that awnings are too modern or fancy. Well, having a simple window or door awning can provide a beautiful statement that fits seamlessly with your current style.

With a more traditional home design, you want to maintain consistency while still being able to upgrade. Eureka Awnings has the best awnings for sale to help you do that.
