Sun and sand, and Sydney awnings
Sydney is the city of sun and sand, and with such scorching summer, it’s not so surprising that it has more of a beach orientated culture than many of Australia’s other capital cities. Sydney is home to some of the most recognisable beaches in the world. Hundreds of tourists arrive at Bondi Beach every year, and Coogee is well known with the locals and tourists as a great beach to spend lazy summer days.
Summer in Sydney means spending a lot of time outdoors, whether at one of the numerous beaches or at a park with family and friends. And while many places are out in the sun, there are always shading solutions nearby to offer shelter and sun protection. As much as you may love getting some sun, you don’t want your summer to be ruined by sunburn, or something worse.
Many people, when they go to a beach or park take their own shade with them in the form of umbrella’s or tents, but when it comes to your own home, often a more permanent shading solution is the best way to go. Sydney awnings ensure that you can continue to enjoy a lifestyle out in the sun without putting you, your family or your home at risk of sun damage.
Sydney shade solutions
With an abundance of cafes lining the borders of the beach, Sydneysiders love nothing more than to sit outside in the sun with a cool drink. But that doesn’t mean they’re not smart about sun safety. Sun protection has been ingrained in most Australians since primary school, and Sydney people know to seek shade when the sun’s out.
Outdoor awnings in Sydney, allow everyone to enjoy the great weather without having to worry constantly about the dangers of sun damage. Many of Sydney apartments have balconies, and for those that don’t already have some kind of shading or shelter, it’s worth looking into adding an outdoor awning to the space, if you don’t have the space for an extended awning, you could always choose an external blind that provides cover over a window.
External blinds are convenient when you have less space to work with but still want to invest in high performing shade for your home. With choices of either a drop-arm awning or straight drop awning, you can find something to suit a home of any shape and size.
Drop-arm awnings – Drop-arm awnings can extend slightly away from your home, inclining at just the right angle, so as to provide shade while still allowing for light and airflow into your home.
Straight drop awnings – A straight drop awning does just that, drops straight down to cover your window. More durable and heavy duty that indoor blinds or curtains, a straight drop awning will block out the harshest of the sun’s rays, helping to protect your interior and keep things cooler.
