4 Design Ideas and Tips To Extend Your Outdoor Living Space With Pivot Arm Awnings

Custom-made pivot arm awnings are the perfect solution for extending your outdoor living spaces. They provide a stylish, practical and versatile solution for growing your outdoor space and expanding the inside of your home to the outside.

These easy-to-operate, adjustable awnings are made of high-quality materials providing you with privacy, shade, temperature control and more for many years to come.

Read on for some top design ideas on using these functional awnings to enhance your property and easily extend your outdoor space.

Creating Outdoor Dining Spaces

There’s nothing better on a hot day than taking your meal outdoors in a cool, shady spot. Adding awnings over your patio creates an instant outdoor dining room sheltered from the hot sun, wind or rain, making it useful for everyday meals and also great for entertaining. Add some string lights or lanterns, and you can create the perfect entertainment area for your next gathering of family or friends.

Adding Privacy To Your Yard

Pivot arm awnings are a great option if you need to add some privacy to specific spaces in your yard. Use them to block off your patio from the nosy neighbours or simply to create a sanctuary where you can hide away to relax and rest.

Zoning Your Yard

If different family members use your yard for various activities, dividing the space into sections is helpful. This effect can easily be achieved by installing awnings at strategic spots and angling them correctly to block off different parts of the yard.

Embracing Nature

Awnings can be used to bring peace and harmony to your outside areas. Be sure to choose fabrics and finishes that suit your needs and complement the aesthetic of your yard. Try to match up with the colour scheme and architecture of your building for the best fit. Our consultants can advise on the most appropriate option for your style and layout.
