Blinds and canopies make the perfect edition to your indoor and outdoor living space and enhances it in ways you may not have thought possible. This month, Denton Blinds will be explaining the benefits of both, to explain to you how to take full advantage of window adornments and embrace what these luxuries have to offer.  

Outdoor living space, whatever the weather
Don’t let your time outdoors be dictated by the weather. When the infamous British summer rain makes an unwelcome appearance, you won’t have to panic and collect all your things together and rush inside for shelter. You can continue to sit back, relax and let the shower pass over, under the trusted protection of your canopy. 

On the flip side, if it’s scorching outside – pop your canopy up and block the sun’s rays, this will help to keep your home’s interior cool and keep you nicely in the shade. 

Enhance the aesthetics, indoors and out
By choosing the right style, colour and patterned canopies, you can add a classic, elegant feel to your home, improving its aesthetic appeal whilst also offering a practical function. With a wide variety of colours and styles available, you can be sure to find something that suits your tastes and complements the exterior of your home. 

Inside your home, you can choose between a variety of styles including: 

Each type of blind is different and all offer a number of benefits; simply discover the one that best suits your lifestyle.  

Protection from the elements – come rain or shine
Canopies provide the perfect shaded area, providing a cool break from the hot sunshine and protecting your patio furniture – and you – from harmful UV rays that can cause fading over time. Offering far more shade than an umbrella would, with a canopy, you no longer have to squeeze into a crowded space as soon as you’re looking to seek out some shade. 

If you opt for a retractable canopy, you can easily wind-in or use the remote control to reign in the retractable cover, so you can take full advantage of the sunshine, but with the option for shelter as and when you need it. 

Saving you money on energy bills
Shut blinds and extended canopies can cool your home no end. Creating a blockage between the sun and your home, the amount of interior heat in your house will be decreased by a sizeable amount. Therefore, you won’t have to rely on air conditioning units to cool down your home which will save you money in the long term on hefty energy bills. 

Maximises your living space
With beautiful blinds and canopies, you can branch out and start utilising your outdoor living area, rather than leaving it a neglected and wasted space. You can entertain guests and spend some quality time together outside, whether you host a BBQ for friends and family or spend an afternoon together playing games and relaxing as a family.
