Canvas canopies can be an easy, stylish way to add sun protection and other types of protection to an area of your yard or property. Here are a few of the applications that you may want to consider using a canvas canopy for.
1. Shade your windows
Canvas canopies can act as stylish awnings for your windows. Installing a canopy above a window to keep the sun out can provide a variety of benefits from reducing UV fading of your furniture to avoiding unwanted heat accrual from the sun's rays. Shading your windows can even help keep your home cooler in summer and may even lower your cooling costs.
2. Shade your pool or patio
Canvas canopies can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they can be installed at a variety of different angles. So no matter what size and shape your pool or patio is, you can install a canvas canopy to provide sun protection for your recreational area. You can shade your patio to give you a nice spot to cool off in the shade or shade your pool to avoid sunburn and reduce glare on the water.
3. Increase privacy
Canvas canopies can also help give you a little more privacy for your outdoor living. You can install them at an angle so that your patio isn't visible from the road, for instance. Or you can install one outside your french windows so your neighbors won't have a full view of your living room or kitchen. This can be especially helpful if you live near a busy highway or in a subdivision where homes are placed close together.
4. Repel rain
A canvas canopy can also provide a degree of rain protection (although not necessarily complete protection). If you want to shield something from rain, choose a canvas canopy that's been waterproofed. Or you can add a waterproofing layer yourself after installing the canopy. Petroleum-based waterproofing products can provide rain protection for your canvas material.
5. Protect plants and seedlings
A canvas canopy can protect delicate seedlings from the blistering sun. If you're trying to start small plants, this can be an invaluable way to provide some shade while still ensuring the plants get enough natural light to grow and thrive.
These are just a few of the applications to consider using a canvas canopy for. A variety of other creative applications around your yard may also be ideal for canvas canopies. If you'd like to learn more about canvas canopy products, contact a local supplier like EVANS AWNING.
