Amazing awnings

We all know what the Great British weather can be like – sunny one moment, pouring with rain the next. Which is why it can be difficult to truly make the most of your patio space – as soon as you’re set up for an al fresco lunch or barbecue you’re dashing for shelter.

That’s why fully retractable awnings are a blessing. They provide shelter from the elements, meaning you can still dine through a quick shower, and also shade if the sun is too intense. The Great British Awning & Blind Company provide British-made awnings made to bespoke measurements, so they’re perfect for any space you may have. Choose from a versatile range of fabrics, colours and sizes, while exploring features such as integrated lighting and heating. It’s all designed to help you enjoy the outdoors in light or dark, rain or shine.

Perfect pergolas

Pergolas are more of a permanent fixture in your garden or patio, but that allows you a different kind of flexibility all year round. After a professional site survey, the Great British Awning & Blind Company can install a pergola that might incorporate sliding glass panels and outdoor heaters, blinds or LED lighting to make outdoor living fun.

Brilliant blinds

You might already have a sun room or conservatory built to help you make the most of the sun or a particular aspect of your home. Such rooms are prone to sharp temperature changes from the change in seasons, especially in summer, with too much heat and glare combining to make them uncomfortable.

High quality electric blinds, again available in a variety of colours and fabrics, can help you to regulate heat and light in your conservatory at the push of a button.
