Four Instances That Make You NOT Regret Getting An Awning
The word “awning” is a relatively rare term for people to use. You could have one in your own home and fail to realize that it’s an awning. An awning, in the shortest possible explanation, is an extension of a house. It offers extra space and shade to help you enjoy afternoons in your lawn more comfortably. If it’s not obvious enough, the word awning is an overarching category that encompasses the following:
- Car Sheds or Ports
- Window & Door Extensions
- Other Types of Overhangs
So yeah, you may already have some type of awning installed at your home and you don’t even know it. Or, you may already be planning to get one already – and I suggest you actually do. Some people may think that getting an awning is just needless expense. After all, you can definitely exist without it. But certain situations will really have you thinking how great it’d be if you owned one. Here are a few:
When Rainy Days Come & Things Get A Little Muddy
You’ll realize getting an awning is great the moment you get home from work one rainy afternoon and find that you’ve got a convenient place to take off your muddy shoes in. This instance will definitely make you sigh in relief and say “Darn. I sometimes surprise myself by making the most brilliant choices.” Okay. Too much.
But really, nothing sucks more than getting mud all over your tile or vinyl floor. You’re already tired from work. How can you afford to spend what little time left you have to clean your muddy footsteps?
When Summer Days Are Too Hot, You Sizzle
Summer may look super fun – especially because it is often marketed as the season of beach parties and epic margaritas. However, minus the beach, fun, and water slides, summer is simply a season that will fry you dry. Having an awning during this hell of a season (literally) will surely help rid your home of the extra rays. Getting a window or door awning to reflect some of the sun’s harsh heat should do plenty in keeping your home temperature bearable – and your electricity bill, affordable.
When Mornings Call For A Nice Cup Of Coffee Outside
Okay. I just had to get this included. This feels more of a luxury rather than a benefit but mind you, I see coffee as a necessity. And having a terrific place where I can sit back and have some is as good a benefit as any. Imagine starting your day with a nice cup of freshly brewed coffee, inhaling the clear, morning air outside your home, all the while sheltered by the cozy shade of your terrace awning. Now, doesn’t that sound like your kind of life?
When Your Friends Come Over For A Tea Party
Not just tea parties. Think barbeques, mani-pedi sessions, board games, and even house parties. The possibilities of what you can do underneath your awnings are limitless. Save yourself the trouble of making costly reservations and just celebrate intimate gatherings on your own porch!
