Modern Awnings & Pergolas: Sydney’s new outdoor style

With Sydney coming into summer, we’re all itching for a bit more time outdoors – even in our own backyard. Unfortunately, a lot of homes are ill equipped for the summer sun, lacking the shade required to keep you from burning to a crisp. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. There are plenty of options to keep you cool this summer, in the form of modern awnings and pergolas. These simple but effective structures can be striking and statement-making with the right design, giving you a sanctuary in the comfort of your own backyard.


Before making a purchase, consider the environment and design of your home. For example, if you’re close to the coastline, investing in an aluminium awning is a wise choice, as it will protect from corrosion that can often occur, caused by the salt spray of the ocean.

In summer, if you find that your home gets hot to the point of unbearable, it could be time to consider an insulated awning or pergola. We can’t think of any cons to an insulated awning – they not only bounce the heat away from your home, their insulating qualities will also dull the thud of heavy rain on your roof, allowing you to continue to enjoy the outdoors, even when Mother Nature seems to be against it! One of the greatest qualities of the insulated sunroom is their ability to be transformed into a sunroom later on down the track, so if you’re looking for a gradual transformation to your outdoor entertainment areas, an insulated awning may just be the ticket.
